    [Note: Saxe-Gotha, A Genealogical History of Lexington County states that Valentine Gable died circa 1834 owning a tract of 150 acres on Bear Creek waters of the Saluda River, bounded at the time by lands of Michael Drafts, George P. Drafts, Emanuel Corley, Frederick Gable, West Corley, and others. On 12 June 1857 (n. b.: Perhaps upon the death of Valentine's widow, Martha?) West Caughman, Michael Drafts, Daniel Kleckley, Nathaniel Kleckley, and Wesly Corley were named commissioners to partition the estate. John Monts purchased the land at the sale held the first Monday in October 1857.]
