Randolph Gibson, South Carolina Will
Posted by: Mary Sue Austin (ID *****7715) Date: September 04, 2004 at 13:48:58
In Reply to: Randle Gibson, South Carolina Will by Carolyn Sparks of 13740

I have found the following information about Randolph Jr., son of Randolph Gibson and Mary Crowley that I believe shows the migration of the Gibson family from Pendleton, SC to Warren Co. Kentucky.

James Culton migrated along with at least two of his children (Joseph and Jane) to Pendleton County, SC before 1785, where they were neighbors of James and William Gibson. The 1790 census of Pendleton County lists Joseph Culton as head of household with 3 males, 3 females
and 2 slaves. While in SC, James' daughter Jane Culton married RANDOLPH GIBSON, brother of JAMES and WILLIAM Gibson, about 1795. The Randolph Gibsons, along with other members of the Gibson family, migrated to Warren County, KY.

Warren County Kentucky was established late in 1796 and became Kentucky's 24th County in 1797. It was created from a portion of Logan County

NOTE: note that all 5 of the names of Randolph Gibson Sr.'s sons are found here in 1810.

The following is from an Affadavid and an Appliction for Transfer (military pension) signed in Jasper County, MO on Feburary 11, 1846 for Joseph Culton, brother of Jane (Culton) Gibson and brother-in-law of her husband Randolph Gibson.

"On this 14th day of June 1834, personally appeared before me Charles Butter an acting Justice of the Peace in and for said County of Morgan (IN), Joseph Culton, a resident of the county and state aforsaid, aged sixty-eight years....that in the state of Virginia in Montgomery County, in the months of August or September in the year 1780, he entered the service of the United States in the revolutionary war as a private soldier, and as a substitute for his father James Culton who was drafted under the command of Captain William Montgomery. In answer to interrogations, he says.
1. he was born in Augusta County in the state of Virginia in the year 1766.
2. That his father recorded his age in the family Bible and he thinks it is now in the possession of his brother-in-law, Randolph Gibson who resides in the State of Tennessee on the Tennessee River.

1810 US Census - Warren Co KY - Randolph Gipson
3 M < 10
2 M 10<16
1 M 26<45 (Randolph) (age 40-45)
1 F < 10
1 F 10<16
1 F 26<45 (Jane?)
Living beside Randolph is George Gipson age 16<26, with female 10<15 (he married in 1810 in Warren Co KY)
NOTE: Randolph that moved to Rhea/Meigs Co. Tennessee between 1810 and 1820.

1820 US Census - Rhea Co Tn - Randolph (age 50<60)

1830 US Census Rhea Co Tn Randolph Gibson
1 M 10<15 (probably Alfred age abt 12)
1 M 15<20 (James)
1 M 20<30 (probably Randolph Jr)
1 M 60<70 (Randolph )
1 F 10<15 (probably Jane or Matilda)
1 F 50<60 (Jane, wife of Randolph)

Other Gibsons in 1830 US Census Rhea Co TN:
Gibson, David
Gibson, William
Gibson, Benjamin
Gibson, Pleasant
Gibson, Willaim
Gibson, George
Gibson, G. W.

Randolph Sr died before 1840 - his wife Jane is found listed in the 1840 Meigs Co Tennesee Census (Meigs Co was formed from part of Rhea in 1836)

Hope this information helps!

I am trying to figure out who the Mary Gibson was - she was age 45+ in 1810 - I believe the two sons age 16<26 listed in the 1810 census are William and Randolph Gibson, found in 1820 in Allen Co Kentucky (formed from Warren Co KY in 1815)living beside each other, probably nephews of the Randolph age 26<45 in the 1810 Warren Co. census. (he moved on to Rhea Co, TN by 1820)

I would appreciate any help offered to determine who the father of Randolph Gibson and William Gibson of Allen Co. Kentucky was. William's wife died by 1830, and he and his children moved to Lincoln Co. between 1830 and 1840. His sons were James, Randolph William and Henry Gibson, and his daughters were Susan, Mary(Polly) and Nancy Ann.

William's son Randolph never married. James married Minerva Slavens, and Nancy Ann married Minerva's brother John Wesley Slavens. Susan married a Darnell. Mary married Charles Sheets. Henry married Lucy Jane Wright.
