You are correct that Mrs. Price's research was cited at that website. Did she discover the will of JOHN GABLE ? Was her research about him cited at that website but was missed by me ? With the additional mentioning of other Gables in the Savannah Newspapers around 1800, it became unclear to me whether there were several JOHN GABLES who lived along the south end of the Savannah River before 1760 or just one. If there was just one JOHN GABLE, why would his will name only a few children and leave out those named at the website ?
A lengthy search of the records at the South Carolina Archives revealed only a Michael Gabel between 1760 and 1775. They do show that Harmon/Herman Gable/Gabel, Sr. served in Colonel Cotton's Loyalist Regiment in 1780, but no record of that type was found for Valentine Gable. I believe he first appeared several years later in church records in what today is Lexington County, South Carolina. If Mrs. Price's records disagree, I hope that others will advise and/or corrected me.
There is nearly a three (3) decade document gap in the timeline between JOHN GABLE's grant in South Carolina and Harmon/Herman Gable's record of being paid in Colonel Cotton's Regiment. 1762 falls in that gap.
