Gabino Cabahug was born on February 18, 18484a, the second son of Josef Silvestre and Beronica Maria. On April 22, 18734a, Gabino married Jorgea Pitogo, the daughter of Santiago Pitogo and Maria Mercader. During 1873 and 1874, Gabino served as Cabeza de Barangay (Barangay Captain)26. A barangay is the smallest governmental unit in a Philippine Town or City, analogous to a ward in American cities.
Gabino and Jorgea initially settled in Liloan, where their first three children were born. Then sometime after 1880, the family moved to San Remigio, a town in northwestern Cebu. When their son Victor was born, Gabino and Jorgea were still registered in Liloan, suggesting they had only recently arrived in San Remigio4a. The birth of their fourth child, Florentina, is not found in the church records of either Liloan or San Remigio.
