Special notes about this person: Solomon and Elizabeth would have spoken Pennsylvania Dutch, probably exclusively. Solomon is the "father" of the present day "Gable Reunion." They lived in lower Lehigh County, PA near the Chestnut Hill church. The home can be seen off the right side of the northbound lanes of the northeast extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, north of Quakertown.
