    • [This information came from researcher Jim Gabbert of 245 North Point Street, San Franciso CA, 94132 in letter/ phone call to Sue Green in 1994. Mr Gabbert's gggreat mother was Elizabeth Tennison Gabbert]

      Elizabeth married Azariach in 1820 and divorced him in 1826. Divorce document can be found in the "Tennessee Divores, 1797-1858, (See Sources)
      She took their young sons with her. She told the court that he was not taking care of her during her illness. She married her doctor (Michael Gabbert) in 1827. and had three children with Gabbert. It is unclear if the two (or 3) Dennis children used the surname DENNIS or adopted the name GABBERT.
      The Gabbert / Tennison family was in Fayette Co., TN in the 1830 census with 2 males under the age of 5 (one possible Dennis), 2 males 10-15 age group (Dennis males); Michel Gabbert age 30-40, and female 15-20; 1 Female 40-50. Elizabeth should be listed as 30 yrs. age.
      In the 1840 census the family is in Memphis, Shelby county, TN, next door to Fayette Co, TN and close to Memphis, TN.
      In 1850 the family has one son living with them, Solon Gabbert, age 17 (b 1833) and a student of medicine.
      Mr. Gabbert died 10 Oct. 1855 (Death date from Microfilm at U of Memphis Library-and Memphis- Shellby Co., Publication)
