I have checked these records personally and it seemed to me as if the name was spelled "Zarababel". Also while checking in Bulloch Co., Ga I ran across a deed to a Zarababel Gay, but I did not check it out. At the time I did realize he might be in my family. I had a limited amount of time there and spent most of it on my husband's family.
I hope this is helpful
