The son of John Jacob & Lydia A. (Seiler) Gable, in 1860 he was a farmer living in Chanceford Township, York County, Pennsylvania, although there is a suggestion that he was living in adjacent Windsor Township. He stood 5' 6" tall and had brown hair and gray eyes.
A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in York September 28, 1861, and mustered into federal service in the field at Cockeysville, Baltimore County, Maryland, October 31 as a private with Co. D, 87th Pennsylvania Infantry. He was captured at the battle of Carter's Woods June 15, 1863, and incarcerated on Belle Isle in Richmond, Virginia. Following parole, he was sent to Camp Parole, Annapolis, Maryland, where, on November 3, 1863, he deserted only to be arrested two days later in Baltimore. It was during this time that he was indicted in civilian court for assault with intent to murder by knife. The army staid his trial until after his discharge, and he returned to duty with the regiment on December 7, 1863. Falling ill, he was admitted to a Washington DC hospital on July 26, 1864, and remained there through his honorable discharge October 13, 1864. On November 10, 1864, a civilian court acquitted him of the murder charge. Ergo, he again enlisted in York March 28, 1865, receiving a $500 bounty, mustered into federal service at Harrisburg March 29 as a private with the second organization of Co. D, 103rd Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company June 25, 1865, at New Berne, North Carolina.
By 1870, he was living in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. He married Carrie M. Lance March 6, 1878, in Morris County, New Jersey, and fathered Lee A. (b. 05/26/80), Charles H. (b. 06/25/82), Hattie M. (b. 11/17/84), Emma R. (b. 01/25/90), and Arthur L. (b. 11/27/93). He then moved his family to Kansas, precise date unknown, where he remained until death. In 1900, the widowed Carrie married Henry Brown, veteran of the 46th Indiana Infantry, and died June 6, 1948.
