Hi Kathy! Thanks for the info. There have been 2 different birthdates for Mandy that I have seen in posts etc. I actually got her info from my hubby's family bible....which is actually pretty bare when it comes to info. The dates for Mandy were written in his bible by his Mother, Ola Mae. People back then didn't much care about this stuff and weren't concerned with accuaracy.....guess they didn't count on us being curious abt "our past". LOL!! Anyway....

I've no doubt the headstone could be wrong as I've seen many that way. Jerry Taylor lists Mandy as born in 1882. I've also heard that Mandy and Laura were twins. Have you any info on that??? I have a picture of Mandy and Tom. Would you like me to email it to you? Also the following headstones : Jeanette & OC Gibson, L Marlor Gibson, Maebelle Gibson, Ruby Gibson Murray, Thomas Alvin Sutton(Ruby's Son), Mandy & Tom as well as Ola Mae Gibson Benefield's Obit. Let me know. I've seen several other TS but didn't take pics as my hubby had no idea if they were related or not.
