I DO have a photocopy of the microfilmed version of the will of John Gable, immigrant, as do some other Gable descendants who did work with the compiler of the family history back before 2000. But, I do not have a scanner, but will forward your request to one of them who does have a scanner. However, the will isn't the only recorded document relating to JOHN GABLE, as there are a few additional documents that help to establish a better timeline (FOR THIS PARTICULAR JOHN GABLE) and give depth to the circle of families and individuals around the family before he died.
So far, I haven't been able to locate and analyze Judge Zelma Price's volume on the Gable family and I refuse to drawn any conclusions until that occurs. Hence, the documents that do exist may have been discovered by her and she may have established other relationships. Obviously, she worked very hard on it and having been a Judge, was trained in some ways to see through relationships with sharp accuracy. On the other hand, if she did NOT possess DISCOVERY of the documents, she could NOT have rendered judgment/factual conclusions that included the information contained in them.
Mostly, I'm flabbergasted at my accidental discovery and wondered how I lucked into information that dozens of others have searched for more years than I have been alive. (The will wasn't the first document that I accidentally found while researching another family on the other side of my family tree. But, that document said there was a will and I decided to see if I could find it and what it said.) The documents did make me dig harder and try to broaden the little bit of family history that seems to be proven. That digging rendered documents (other than his will) specifying the maiden names of the two wives of Harmon Gable, Jr. of Abbeville and Edgefield Counties of South Carolina.
