Hi Kathy! I read some of your posts thia AM for Towns Co. You must be my husband's cousin. His grandparents were also Thomas Marion Gibson, b.1874, d. 1967. Married Mandy Gibson, b. 1875, d. 1961. This differs a little from that Taylor fellows info (Heartstones). I just came from the cemetery after taking pictures of their headstones. Anyway, one of their children was Ola Mae, b. 8/22/1922, d. 2/24/1991. She married Howard Birdner Benfield and they produced Kenneth Howard(deceased) and my hubby Terry Birdner Benfield. I'm believe Martha is still with us. Her son Jim (I believe) just died this past year. I also found a headstone in their plot that was a "Maebelle Gibson" b, 8/5/1920, d. 9/21/1935, listed as the daughter of "Mr & Mrs. Robert Gibson". My hubby remembers is Mama having a brother "Bob". Also a grave stone, and I mean stone in their family plot that I could barely read. I think the first name is "Marge or Maragret" or something like that, and I could make out b. 8/1912, d. 11/13/ 1933/1908/1903? not sure. Don't know if she is a Gibson or Benfield. Look forward to hearing from you.
