I was told by my grandparents that my great-great grandfather immigrated to the United States from Germany. Upon arrival to the U.S. his name was changed from "Kabler" to "Cabler" and that I am related to most people with the last name "Cabler". I have never met another Cabler (except for my known relatives). I was also surprised after surfing the net to see so many Cablers. Most of my family resided in Alabama.
