Michael was born in 1735.
About the beginning of the Revolution Micael Gabert moved his family from Shenandoah County [Dunmore's name changed to Shenandoah 1778] in Virginia to Burke Co NC.
He received a grant of 200 acres on the South side of the Catawba River in Burke Co in 1778; no sale for this land has been found.
Sons Jacob and George enlisted in the Burke Co militia in 1781. Michael may have moved to Tennessee with Jacob and George about 1783 when he was on a delinquent tax roll in Burke Co. On the other hand, sons Henry & Mathias & daughter Mary remained in Burke Co and he may have stayed with them.
In 1795, his name appears on the Washington Co VA personal property tax roll, shortly after sons George and Henry first appear there.
The last listing for Michael in Washington Co VA was in 1809. Nothing else is known about either Michael or his wife. He appears to have lived with Mathias, or Mathias with his father for much of the time he lived in Washington Co.
There are no records of marriages for Michael Gebert. Some of his children's records indicate he was married to both Catherine Grindstaff and Catherine King.
Jacob's grandfather is stated as Michael Grindstaff in his pension files. Data from son Henry indicates Henry's mother was a Catherine King The article by Jay Gabbard calls Jacob and Henry half-brothers which solves the problem but without compelling proof. The birth years of the children are guestimates by researchers, and do not show the gap that often exists when a wife has died and a remarriage takes place.
