George moved to Burke Co along with his father. He joined the local militia in 1781; he did apply for his pension for his Revolutionary service.
Ater the War, George moved to Washington County, TN, probably along with members of the Grindstaff family. There is a court record in Judgement Book 1 of Washington Co VA in 1784, but by 1787 he was in Washington County, TN:
In 1790 he acquired a NC Grant for 640 acres, which was located the Cornelius Bowman, Edward Smith and the Grindstaffs.
Carter Co TN
Three children said born in Tennesse, but George was listed on the Washington Co VA tax lists in 1794. When he sold his Carter Co TN lands in 1797-98, he was described as a resident of Washington Co VA. Two more children were born in Virginia by 1800. George bought two tracts of land on Walker Mountain in 1801 and 1806. He sold these by 1808 when he left for KY:
By 1809 George was living in Mercer Co KY on the Salt River near Harrodsburg. Some of his cousins, sons of Fredrich Gabbart also lived in Mercer Co and they had a brother George as well. This has caused a great deal of confusion about which George belonged to which family.
TENNESSEE SMITHOLOGY states that a George Gabbert was a Private in the NC Militia and pensioned in 1834 at age 73 in Mercer Co KY.
George GABBERT and Catherine SMITH were married on 27 December 1787 in Washington County, Tennessee.2 Catherine SMITH was born (date unknown).
