Genealogy, Genealogy....

Apparently one of my aunts died this past week.  They know she had a heart attack.  I am getting in that age bracket myself, that the older generation, is alas, going.  I am fortunate enough to still have my own parents, plus most of my family.  All of my grandparents died from 1996 through to 2008.  It started with my mom's mom, Irene Ziemmer Smith, 26 Feb 1996, then on 25 Dec 2001 my dad's dad, Charles George Heyen.  Then in May 2005 my mom's dad, Duane Leslie Smith.  Then June 2008, my dad's mom, Henrietta Sibyl Scott Heyen (aka Henryetta Blanche Jackson).  I know I have written in the past of each family, especially my search for Grandma Heyen's birth family.  Today I am writing about and searching for my ex-husband's family, and my best friends family.  The reason I am searching for them "together" is because they may be related.
A number of years ago, I was a caregiver for a very good friend of mine, Jolela, comes to find out, her ex-husband and my ex-husband were cousins.  Now it looks like it might be happening again.  I guess I should be glad it isn't ME related to my ex, lol.
My ex-husband's last name is Goble.  His grandfather was Romie Farles Goble.  Romie's father was Jerry Goble.  About here, is when the name changes, from Goble to Gobble (years earlier, like the 1600-1700's it was Gable).  The Gable is where it comes into play, one of my best friends aunt married a Gable, is there a connection?  On the hunt I go!  I have used mainly,, and for these searches.
