Succession on Gibala's ( Kejbalik) grunt in Pavlovice number 4.

1. Martin Kejbalik (* abt.1600 - + before 1667)

bought this farm for 400 hrivna from Matyas Zeman. The name of his wife and true count of children I don't know, because the books of births and deaths for the village of Pavlovice are in the archive since the year of 1664. According to my known information I think that Martin Kejbalik had a minimal 3 children, 2 sons and 1 daughter between the years 1647 - 1653 he was in Pavlovice fojt.
The name of daughter I don't know, but in the Register zadusni in the church in Pavlovice it is written on page 56: In the year of 1645, Jan Sovka from the village Hostkovice (near Trsice) on the marriage's certificate the daughter of Martin Kejbala from Pavlovice made a vow of one's own free will to give to church in Pavlovice 5 hrivna.

2.Vaclav Gibalik (Kejbalik) ( * abt.1630 - + after 1685)

perhaps a son of Martin Kejbalik. He was twice married. His first wife was Katerina, I don't know her maiden name (* abt.1635 - + 23.4.1679). They together had minimally 5 adult age children who I found from book of marriage for Pavlovice. Katerina died 23.4.1679. His second wife was Mariana widow after Mikulas Vaclavek died (* abt.1635- + after 1685). They had son named Martin.
In list of Landowners for Pavlovice and Prusinky in an inspection report from 15-th. 10. 1667, which is a part of rectification acts and in National archive in Brno there is under Sign. D 2,36 it is written as owner of half "lan"s (halblahner - German) farm this Vaclav Kejbalik (son of Martin Kejbalik).
In the year of 1661, this Vaclav Kejbalik was written as keeper over the church funds. In Register zadusni of the church of Pavloviceis many times written: In the year of 1661, under keeper of church funds Vaclav Geybala .... . (you can see in the District archive in Prerov).

3.Jan Gibalik - (* abt.1660- + abt.1698)

son of Vaclav Gibalik, he was married to Anna Rozborik from Dolany village (* abt.1660 - + after 1683) and they have 3 children.

4.Jan Geybalik - (* 28.10.1683 - + 6.4.1741).

He married 20.1.1710 to Mariana Hanak from Hradcany (* abt.1690 - + 18.11.1754) and they had 2 children. The marriage of Jan Geybalik and Mariana Hanak was performed by a Pavlovice's priest named, Jan Jiri Ignac Stredovsky,a famous baroque Moravian's historian and writer. On the frontispiece of his Latin written book Sacra Moraviae historian from year 1710 is a picture of Pavlovice from around the time of 1710. It is quite probably that the Gibala's farm there is the picture. The Gibala's farm was located on a hill very close to the church and there was and is a direct neighbor on parsonage. I haven't known yet which of buildings on the picture is the Gibala's farm.

5.Vaclav Geibalik (Kybalik, Gebalik, Geybala, Gejbala, Gybala) (* 18.9.1716 - +17.12.1772)

was twice married. He had his first marriage 18.1.1741 to Veronika Rupca from Loucka (* 1719 - +11.8.1744). They had only a son named Frantisek, who died before he was 1 year old. Second time he was married 23.11.1744 to Mariana Dolezel from Pavlovice (* abt.1720 - + after 1763). They had 8 children (one set of twins). 6 of children lived to adult age (4 sons and 2 daughters). All of these children still used only surname Gibala and I am premising that they were the bases for the occurrences of the surname Gibala in the whole area before Austria-Hungary Empire and today around the entire world. That way I try to describe more of them.
Oldiest son Frantisek Gibala (* 3.12.1745 - + kol.1790) rozrod
was married on 31.1.1768 to Eliska Skupina from Hradcany (* kol.1745 - + 11.9.1780). He lived with the family on the farm in Hradcany numb. 13 (on the green on the opposite side of the chappel). They had 6 children (2 sons and 4 daughters), 4 of them died in childhood. Frantisek Gibala married a second time about the year of 1781 to Pavlina Jemelka (* abt. 1761 - +12.8. 1813). They had 11children (7 sons and 4 daughters), 3 sons and 3 daughters survived to adulthood. I haven't found yet the marriage and death records for these children of Frantisek Gibala : Anna Gibala * 7.6.1782 , Antonin Gibala * 27.10.1794, Martin Gibala * 17.10.1796 and Agnes Gibala * 2.2.1799. I am presuming that these children of Frantisek Gibala moved away around 1815 from Hradcany (place I don't know). One of brothers was Kristof Gibala *27.4.1786 - +14.8.1811 died in 1811-I think that they moved away from Hradcany after the year 1811.
Frantisek Gibala left the family farm in Hradcany numb. 13 to the oldest son from his first marriage Josef Gibala *29.12.1768 - +31.3.1849. Josef Gibala was married to Veronika Tihelka in 1796.They had 1 son and 6 daughters. The Son and one of the daughters died as a child. I haven't found the marriage or death records for this Josef Gibala daughters Anna Gibala * 1801, Josefa Gibala * 1805 and Terezie Gibala * 1807.
Because Josef Gibala didn't have a son to take the family farm, he gave this farm to his oldest daughter Frantiska Gibala who was married to Jan Hrbacek from Hradcany in the year 1818. I think that the children of Frantisek Gibala moved away from Hradcany before the year 1818.
Anna Gibala (* 12.6.1748 - + after 1771) was married on 17.5.1771 to Jan Reinoch from Pavlovice. I haven't studied this family yet, because in Pavlovice at this time lived more Reinoch families.
Eleonora Gibala (* 3.4.1752 - + 1818 ) married 24.1.1774 Jakub Tihelka from Susice numb.18. Granddaughter of Eleonora Gibala - Gertruda Tihelka married Josef Gibalik from Pavlovice numb. 2 in the year 1842.
Vendelin Gibala (* 20.10.1759- + after 1800)rozrod
married 7.1.1788 Magdalena Cagasek from Pavlovice ( * 1762 - + after 1800). He was a gardener,this means that he had small farm and they lived in Pavlovice numb.14. They had 8 children (7 daughters and 1 son). I haven't had any information about deaths in this family, because I haven't seen yet death book for Pavlovice between years 1786 - 1880. I haven't found any records about this family after year 1800 it may be that this family moved from Pavlovice soon after year 1800 (before 1820). I have handwritten documents about genealogy research of my uncle priest Vladimir Gibala from years around 1970 where there are some of death dates of the members of the Gibala family between the years 1786 and 1880. The date of death for Vendelin Gibala and his wife aren't in this document. I think that it is probably that Vendelin Gibala and his family moved away from Pavlovice soon after 1800 and that they died in the new settlement.
Jan Gibala (* 24.6.1763 - + after 1808)rozrod
maried 9.2.1784 with Kristina widow after Pospisil from Pavlovice (* abt. 1760 - + 1785). This marriage was without child. The second time Jan Gibala married 8.11.1785 Katerina Konupka from Tucin (*about 1765 - + after 1808). They lived in Pavlovice on numb.9 (23.1. 1790 - 3.6.1805), numb.38 (26.1.1805 - 10.5.1810) and numb.14 (after 1810).They had 6 children (3 daughters a 3 sons). I haven't had death dates of the parents, oldest son Frantisek Gibala(* 18.4.1876) and all 3 daughters.
The second son Josef Gibala (*31.3.1792 - + abt. 1836) lived in Pavlovice numb.14. He was "podruh" and he worked as a farm labourer. Josef Gibala married 29.2.1824 Juliana Zoban from Hradcany (* abt.1802 - + after 1857). I am not sure if they had 3 or 4 children (1 son and 2-3 daughters). Juliana remarried after the death Josef Gibala twice and she and her 3 children lived in Pavlovice numb.14 in 31.10.1857.
The next story about history of grandson of Jan Gibala after leaving Pavlovice here . Youngest son of Jan Gibala Ignac Gibala (*1808) lived in Pavlovice numb. 38 still 31.10.1857. Ignac Gibala married about 1836Anna Reinoch from Pavlovice (*abt.1810 - +abt.1842). They had 3 sons Josef Gibala (* 1837), Antonin Gibala(* 1839) and Ignac Gibala(* 1841).Last information, which I have, about these sons, is that all they were in autumn 1857 in Wien as apprentices. The second time Ignac Gibala (*1808) married Frantiska (* 1816), I don't know his maiden surname. They had one daughter Angelina Gibala (* 1850). I haven't any more information about this family after 1857.

6.Josef Gibala (* 20.6.1754 - + 6.9.1810).

He got the farm Pavlovice numb. 4 from his parents. Josef Gibala is written in the "Josefinsky katastr " from 25.3.1789 in Pavlovice numb. 4. At this time the8-th biggest farmer in Pavlovice according to lands area. (13 ha 47 ar 65 square meters = 134 765 square meters).
Josef Gibala married 7.6.1779 Katerina Manek from Prusinky (*abt.1755 - +12.9.1836). They had 10 children (6 sons and 4 daughters). 4 children died before adulthood (1 daughter a 3 sons). From these children I don't have death dates for the two oldest sons Josef Gibala (*1786) and Frantisek Gibala (* 1787). I think that they moved away from Pavlovice around 1805.

7.Ignac Gibala (*30.3.1790 - 4.10.1836)

married 5.2.1811Terezie Gallas from Pavlovice numb.7 (* 30.6.1791 - +15.11.1850). His father Jakub Gallas was the herschaftliecher oberschaefer on the demesne farm. Ignac Gibala and Terezie had 11 children (7 sons and 4 daughters), but 7 children died before adulthood (5 sons and 2 daughters). Oldest son Frantisek Gibala (* 1815) probably moved away from Pavlovice around 1840, I don't have any more information about him.

After widowing Appolonie remarried in 1867 to a 15-year younger Tomas Tomcik. At this time for few years the Gibala's ownership line on the farm Pavlovice numb.4. was interrupted.

9. Antonin Gibala (*4.6.1852 - +14.10.1910)

married 17.11.1874 Viktorie Horak from Dluhonice numb. 28 (*24.12.1852 - +18.8.1910). She was not related to Apolonie Horak. They had 7 children (6 sons and 1 daughter). 3 sons and daughter died in childhood.

Antonin Gibala built a roadside inn near the road to Lipnik. This house has number 88. Antonin Gibala didn't get a license to operate this inn. He gave the farm number 4 to his older son Antonin. He along with his wife and younger son Tomas moved to new built house Pavlovice numb. 88. Here both - Antonin Gibala and his wife Viktorie died.
