Gabriel moved to Kansas about 1857 with his family, apparently leaving brother Francis W. behind in Indiana. He returned to Indiana, where he married and bought land in Jasper County in 1863 and in Newton County in 1864. He moved his family to Holt County, Missouri, in 1867, where they lived until 1893. Then they moved to Wright County, Missouri; the following year they moved again, this time to Cass County where they bought a home in the Pitts Chapel neighborhood.

Mary Ann’s aunt and uncle, Joseph D. and Sarah (Nowles) Yeoman, were the first white settlers in Jasper County, Indiana. Her great-grandfather, Stephen Yeoman, was a Revolutionary War veteran from New York. Six years after Gabriel’s death, Mary Ann moved to East Lynne with her unmarried daughter Alpha; they moved to Harrisonville in 1920.
