  Gabe arrived with his parents and younger siblings in 1888, when he was 20, after his older brothers, Israel and Joseph, paved the way via Canada to Duluth.
  Gabe's citizenship papers and the 1900 U.S. Census indicate that he arrived with his brothers in Duluth from Russia in June, 1884, when age 17. It is unclear why he wrote down the earlier arrival date, the same as that of Israel and Joseph, on the day they declared together their intent to be naturalized U.S. citizens.
  His 1888 citizenship papers said he was born in 1867; the 1900 Census said 1868; his death certificate, 1865. In 1888, he declared his intent to become a U.S. citizen, along with his older brothers, Israel (later Israel Bright) and Joseph, and with Joseph "Eedel" Sosnovsky and an Isador Lieberman.
