118. Samuel Stilley5 Gorby (Samuel George4, Joseph3, Joseph2, Samuel1) was born in Columbiana Co, OH. December 3, 1830. Samuel died 1910 in Columbiana Co, OH., at 79 years of age.
He married Elizabeth Headley in Columbiana Co, OH., May 12, 1853. Elizabeth was born September 26, 1837. Elizabeth died November 15, 1882 in Columbiana Co, OH., at 45 years of age. Her body was interred. Buried in Anchor Valley Baptist Church Cemetery, Columbiana Co, OH. (1936) Samuel Stilley Gorby moved to Clay Co, IN after marrying Elizabeth Headley, and his older children were born there, but he became dissatisfied, sold his land, and returned to Columbiana Co, OH. A few years later a very rich vein of coal was found on that Indiana farm, and had Samuel Gorby stayed there he would have become a very rich man.
It was through Samuel Gorby's middle name Stilley that the editor was able to locate this branch of the Gorbys, as none of them knew of any ancestors back of Samuel George Gorby, 3rd generation. The family Bible which belonged to Samuel George Gorby, only gave the middle initial S. On asking Mr George Gorby, who owns the Bible, his father's middle name he replied that it was Stilley.
That solved a difficult problem. Samuel George Gorby had named a son for himself and for his own mother - Hannah Stilley Gorby, second wife of Joseph, 2nd generation.
(1997) Samuel Stilley Gorby is buried in Anchor Valley Baptist Church Cemetery, Columbiana Co, OH.
