George Grabill owned a farm at "Turkey Knob," north of the Neff homestead. He is buried in the old Neff graveyard and his stone states that he was 75 at the time of his death. He was probable a brother to Barbara Grabill, wife of Jcob Neff and Mary, wife of Christian Neff, said to be Grabill. This and further discussion is found at: FROM THE RHINE TO THE SHENANDOAH, Vol. 2, by Daniel W. Bly, Gateway Press, Baltimore, MD 1996, pg(s) 143-144.

SURNAME variations: Krehbiel (Krehbill, Krebell, Kraybill, Krayenbuhl, Crayenbühl, Craybill, Grabill, Graybill) family

Krehbiel, a name that frequently occurs among the Mennonites of Germany and America, was derived from the original name Krayenbühl. The family stems from the parish of Grosshöchstetten at a place near Signau, in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. The first member of this family known to have been an Anabaptist was Hans Krähenbühl
from Signau who attended the Anabaptist disputation in the city of Bern in March 1538.
