  • Gable Family of the South

    Editor's Note: We have here a puzzling situation in which two visitors to the same cemetery have produced differing reports on three of the gravestone inscriptions. An asterisk [*] has been placed beside those entries. Two of the differences may result from a different level of effort at capturing details, but the third--relating to Marion Ammer Gable--seems to be a direct conflict.
