So nice to hear from you. We have lots to share.
First some background info. I started researching about 6 years ago and met a lady 84
years old that is researching the Gabert family also. She's been doing it for about 30
years. I am 62 years old and live in York Co., Pa. She lives in Huntingdon Co., Pa. where
the first of our ancestors settled when they came from Germany. We visit Huntingdon Co.
quite often because we have a cabin there. I have much information to share with you and
also have a good many pictures.
I also saw the burial site for Sylvanus on line. Was his wife's name Lorensa Leya? I
have two children for he and his wife. They are your mother Sylvia and Alexander William
Gabert born 8/31/1933. Can you tell me if Alexander is the Judge Gabert that is involved
with the Vioxx trial? My friend sent a letter to him asking for information but never
received a reply.
Sylvanus' father was William Striker Gabert 1857-1916. His mother was Edna Hanna
Seibert 1869-1949. She moved to California after William passed away. She is buried in a
cemetery in San Diego. I have pictures of her gravestone. She and William had four
children that we could find.....Ross who died at only 6 yrs. old.....Clarence Samuel
1896-1985.....John abt 1906-? The child Ross is buried in the Mount Union Cemetery in
Huntingdon Co. William is supposed to be there also but there is no marker for him.
Please keep in touch. It's great to find a Gabert relative. There aren't too
many of us left.
