The surname ZABEL seems to have come from trappers of the Sable.
The idea for this crest was that of M. Jean (Culp) Naiman.
The artist was Ray Hansen a commercial artist, who attended church with Carol Hesselgesser.
The image of the Sable was copied from the dictionary, the rest was free hand. It is my impression that the crest is to represent the immigration from Pommern to Nebraska and the occupations of the respective generations.
