I hope someone recognizes this line of Gibsons and can help us...
Our great Grandfather, James Alfred Gibson, was born about 1869 in Pulaski Co., KY, to a father from Knox Co., KY and a mother from Pulaski Co (the records shared with me mentioned no names)...
With the advice and help of others along the way, we have narrowed our search down to Gibsons in the Knox Co., KY, area between 1840 and 1870...
Jackson Gibson and Sarah Garland had, among their children, a James A. Gibson.
Jackson Gibson's parents were Henry Pleasant Gibson and Honor Lnu (later, Henry P. Gibson married Elizabeth Bollen/Bolen, and they had 7 more kids, in addition to Henry and Honor's 11??)...
It seems Henry Pleasant's parents were Reuben (Wheeler) Gibson and Araetta (Henrietta) Lnu of Scott Co., VA.
I am trying to confirm a connection between Jackson Gibson's son and our great Grandfather.
Our James (b. abt 1869 in Monticello, KY) married Caroline "Carrie" Williams in Pulaski Co. in 1894. He was a track or section foreman with the RR.
We are not sure if he was married before or not, but the James A. Gibson our research keeps coming up with seems to have married an Elizabeth Sullivan.
What's odd is, the records we find show that James A. Gibson married Sullivan on the EXACT same date (and PLACE!) OUR James married Caroline Williams.
I'm thinking it is the same James, who married twice, but that there have been mixups in data. We DO have Emma Mae Gibson's marriage certificate (she was our grandmother, married to Joseph Henry Franklin bet. 1918-1919 in Illinois) in our family bible, and it shows that James A. Gibson and Caroline Williams were married January 6, 1894 in Pulaski Co., KY, by Pastor George A. Sears.
We are told James later died in Frazer, Ky in 1911-1912...
Is anyone else researching this line of Gibsons, that we might exchange info?
This has been a brick wall that's killing me...and am hoping SOMEONE out there knows this family and can help us in our search for James Alfred Gibson's family line...
