Hi, Anne, Ida, and Melody,
I don't know if this is any help, but over Thanksgiving, my mother told me that she remembered from long ago that my dad's uncle John Gibason (deceased) said that the Gibason's settled in Port Deposit, MD, which is in Cecil County. Upon re-reading the board today, it rang a bell when I read that Anne's "Rebecca Gibason"'s husband John left a will in Cecil County. Maybe there's a chance it is Port Deposit, and all the Gibason's are related! My Uncle John & granddad Joseph Gibason are both long deceased. Uncle John had guessed the Gibason's were Swedish because of the -son ending, and I am following far-flung, chancey leads that it may be a Scots-Irish name.
