James resided :. In 1936, Rte 2, E Palestine, OH. (1936) James Sherman Gorby remembered much of the early Gorby history. Through him the Hancock Co, OH Gorbys were located (they could not trace their ancestry back of Jonathon Gorby).

When asked if he had ever heard of a Jonathon Gorby, he replied "Yes indeed, Uncle Jonathon was a younger brother of my Grandfather Samuel George Gorby. After my grandfather settled here in Columbiana Co, he went back to Delaware and brought Uncle Jonathon and his family to Ohio with him. He gave him 60 acres of land as a start. Later Uncle Jonathon sold that land and went to Starke Co."

So this unravelled another problem.
