Hi, I am working on the following family. Appreciate hearing from anyone connected.

...... +William Howard GIBSON b: Dec 1880 in TN

I have never found a census with Mary

NOTE: Also a problem with this line. In early
1950's family attended a reunion at the
home of Frank and Laura Gibson. They
remember the names of several of the
children. But...Frank is never listed
in the home on any of the census. 1920
census lists him as Oscar O. Gibson living
in Rabun Co. GA!!!

I found the following but not yet obtain copies;

Now, in 1880 census I find

1880 United States Federal Census
> Household Members: Name Age
> WALTON GIBSON 44
> UNICE GIBSON 34
> Dorcas SOUTHERLIN 17...Stepdaughter
> Eliner GIBSON 14
> James GIBSON 12
> John GIBSON 9
> Mary GIBSON 5
> Anna GIBSON 3
> Tuck GIBSON 1M
> Mary DILLS 30
> Roxanna DILLS6
> Melville DILLS 2

Then in 1900 he WALTER AND NANCY EUNICE cross into GA and they both change their names.

1900 United States Federal Census
about Noah A GIBSON
Name: Noah A GIBSON
[Noah A Gipson]
Home in 1900: Tallulah, Rabun, Georgia
Age: 13
Birth Date: Feb 1887
Birthplace: North Carolina
Race: White
Ethnicity: American
Relationship to head-of-house: Son
Father's Name: William
Father's Birthplace: North Carolina
Mother's Name: Elisabeth
Mother's Birthplace: Tennessee
Marital Status: Single
Residence : Militia Districts 686, 509, Persimmon, Tallulah, Rabun, Georgia
Occupation: View Image
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
WILLIAM GIBSON
error is 58 68
ELIZABETH GIBSON 58
Franklin R GIBSON 17
Noah A GIBSON 13
Bessie R GIBSON 9

They then come back to Macon County and he is again
Walter A. GIBSON, same children and wife.
To confuse us more...Leach Richard "Tuck" lists his mother
as Elizabeth A JUSTICE on birth records and on his death it lists Nancy E JUSTICE.
His brother, Noah A GIBSON lists his mother as Elizabeth JUSTICE on birth record and on death it says Nancy E JUSTICE. The records float back and forth between the two women even though on the actual 1900 census says it says that they were married for 43 years. Says William was born in Jan 1832, he and parents in NC
Elizabeth born in Apr 1842, she and parents in TN, 11 children 10 living.
The marriage is 10 years off according to this
Marriage: W. A. GIBSON and Nancy Eunice JUSTICE. Bond October 29, 1865 in Macon County, NC

I also found the death certificate of Elizabeth A. Gibson,

Mrs. E A GIBSON
[Mrs. Elizabeth A GIBSON]
[Mrs. E A JUSTICE]
Gender: Female
Race: White
Age: 79
Birth Date: 20 Mar 1846
Birth Place: Tennessee, United States
Death Date: 19 Mar 1926
Death Location: Murphy, Cherokee
Father's Name: William JUSTICE

Also found but not abtained;
Cherokee County Wills 1857 to 1931
5 fibredex boxes
C.R.
023.801.1-
023.801.5
Mrs. E. A. GIBSON 1926 will from Cherokee County, NC
R. B. GIBSON 1916 will from Cherokee County, NC

So you can see there is quite the confussion regarding the JUSTICE women.

Appreciate any help or suggestions. Please feel free to e-mail me direct at darlene.poppe@adelphia. net or

Thanks so much and take care,
Darlene
