(1936) Jesse Gorby was born in Washington Co, PA, in1789, as records show that his father, Thomas Gorby, bought land in that county in 1788. Jesse moved with his parents to Ohio Co, VA, some time after 1802. He married a Miss Wade, her first name has not been learned. He resided at Bellton, now Marshall Co, WV, where he conducted a successful farming and milling business.

Jesse lived about three miles from his brother, Eli, who was buried in an old cemetery, once called Gorby Cemetery, at the mouth of Rocky Run on Fish Creek, so he is probably buried there too.

Four of Jesse Gorby's sons also married girls named Wade. Seldom, if ever, have a father and four sons married wives of the same name.
