Birth: Jul. 29, 1895
Perry County
Indiana, USA
Death: May 19, 1968
El Paso
El Paso County
Texas, USA

Son of Volney Franklin Choate and Lydia Ann Harmon of Perry County Indiana.

Gabriel was married twice. He married Clara A. Pughner and they had a son named Gabriel Burtis born 11 Aug 1915 in Perry County Indiana (book CO-5 page 69).

Gabriel then married Bessie Marie Wright on 13 Mar 1919 in Crawford County Indiana (Book K Page 485). This Bessie shows up on censuses as Bessie L, so there is now a conflict and confusion.

Son Burtis moved to El Paso Texas and Gabriel followed him. Burtis is buried in Ft Bliss Cemetery in Texas.
