1779~1856Gabriel Butler "Ole Gabe" was born in the Carolinas in 1779, about the time of the Revolutionary War. His name is on records in Kentucky in the 1800s. He married his first wife, Sarah Whitesides, in Warren County, KY, on December 26, 1803. Gabe was among the earliest white settlers of Lauderdale County. He arrived here during the early 1800s and leased land from Cherokee Indian Chief Doublehead on the Chief's Reserve. After Doublehead was killed in 1807, the government directed the settlers on his Reserve to leave.
