Re: Rebecca W. Gibason d. 1891 Port Penn

Hello, Anne,
I have very recently received, from Social Security, some info about my grandfather. His full name was Joseph Cleaver Gibason, born in Port Penn, DE, to William and Hattie W. (Jackson) Gibason. He lived from 1905-1965.
He is buried in Coatesville, PA.
(He lived in Coatesville, PA, at least from the mid-1920's through the early 1940's). On an internment record in Coatesville, it says that he died in Delaware. I was only 5 when he died, and I do not know much about him.

I was re-reading this thread since recently receiving his SS# application. I do believe he may be the grandson of William and wife Elizabeth (Johnson) Gibason, whose information you kindly transcribed for me in the previous GenForum message. As I follow through with their children, I am thinking that the William, Jr., of whom was noted "no info" on your list of the children, is my great-grandfather, William Gibason, who married Hattie Jackson.
If I may please ask about your notation: <<A correspondent gave me William's family info. with some names and dates>>,was that for William, Sr. (married Elizabeth Johnson) and therefore the info. that you so kindly typed, or was that for William, Jr., as per the info "that you received from a correspondent"? Thank you for all of the help you've given me; I wish I could help you with your Rebecca W. Gibason's maiden name. I will be on the look-out for her as I continue my search.
If I may please pose one more question for you: So far I have found one church in Port Penn; I believe it was St. David's Methodist. Since my Gibason's were Presbyterian while in Coatesville, would you happen to know of a Presbyterian Church in or near Port Deposit, to which I could write for more info (I am thinking that perhaps this church may have Joseph Gibason's Christening record, before his whole family seemed to have moved to PA)?
Thank you,
All the Best,
