I am researching the Gavel family of Gavelton, Nova Scotia. John Gavel & Sarah Gavel started it all, having landed in Roseway, Nova Scotia (Shelburne), after fleeing New York at the end of the Revolutionary War. But, where John Gavel was born remains a mystery. Some believe that he was Dutch or German, while others think he may have been French or English. Hopefully, some day, we will find the answers to this puzzle.
