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.


Hans Michael Gebert and Anna Sabina Nellinger[2]


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.

Wife: Catherine Grindstaff
Child: Mathias Gabbert
Child: Catherine Gabbert
Child: Mary "Polly" Gabbert
Child: George Gabbert
Child: Jacob Gabbard
Child: John Gabbert

Gebert-54 and Gebbert-3 appear to represent the same person because: All details are the same except name spelling, for which ther are many variants
posted by Barry Lindley
I found a non paternal event in my tree and my dna is worthless in finding any King connection

Gebert-180 and Gebert-54 appear to represent the same person because: same name, same birth year, son Henry on both profiles that have exact same wife (to be merged next).

I share dna with the descendant of Jacob on ancestry but i have no link with any Grindstaff or King yet.I believe he was married twice with 2 different Catherines. I dont know which wife was 1st. so until a sibling DNA descendant of the wives show up we will not know. I Descend from the youngest son Henry.
