Henry Matthews and his wife Isabelle (Belle) Allen, sister to Zerilda Melissa Allen, raised my aunt Laverne Gibson, after the passing of Laverne's mother (my grandmother). Laverne was born in Normangee, Tx in 1925, my father, Cecil, was born in 1922 in North Zulch. Their brother Charlie was born in 1924. We were told that my grandmother's name is Lela, born around 1903,died 1928-29, maybe in Madison, Tx. We also think one of the Allen sisters is my grandmother's mother. Lela married my grandfather, Silas M. Gibson in 1918. They were both found on the Madison County 1920 census. We cannot find any birth or death records for our grandmother or great grandmother. Alpha Lucretia Allen, married John Wesley Gibson, stepbrother to Laverne and Cecil and son of Silas Gibson.
