Looking for Descendants of Jesse G. Gibson /Carroll Co., Ms. 1850 Census

Seeking to locate descendants of Jesse G. Gibson b/ ca 1827 in Tenn; married in Carroll County, Ms. in 1858 to Mary Ann Scrivner b. ca 18 in Tenn.

In the 1860 Carroll County, Ms. Census Jesse. age 33; and his wife, age 24 are living in the household of James W. Gibson b. ca 1802 and his wife (also named Mary. b. ca 1815.) Presumably, these are Jesse's parents.

Jesse and Mary Ann have a son named James who is 1 month old when the Census was taken on Aug. 22, 1860 and this family is shown in Middleton, Ms. There are two other young Gibson children in the household who could either be James W. Gibsons, or Jesse's: Susan, age 6 and Andrew, age 3, who are listed before Jesse and Mary Ann and their son.

Also in this house hold are Joseph Caperton and William Caperton of Tenn; and Henry Skinner age 15 b. Miss. I can account for the Capertons, but not Henry Skinner.

By 1870, Jesse and family are next door to Nathan W. Pentecost and his wife Mary Elizabeth Gibson in Division 28, T. 19 R 5 E.

Jesse and Mary Gibson's children listed in the 1870 Census of Carroll County are: James, b. 1860, Lucida (Lucinda?) Elizabeth, and Jesse Jr.

Does any descendant of this family live in Carroll Co. or a nearby county? I would love to hear from them.
