Jonathan M. GIBSON, b.1844: Kimbolton, Guernsey Co, OH > IL > Tuscarawas Co, OH

Looking for the ancestors of Jonathan M. GIBSON (Dec. 1844 - 1929). He married 27 July 1866 near Kimbolton, Guernsey County, Ohio Elizabeth DOUGLAS d/o Joseph DOUGLAS and Rebecca HOSICK (also seen spelled DOUGLASS and HOSACK.)

After they married "they went west for six years" then returned to the Kimbolton area. They later moved to Newcomerstown, Tuscarawas County.

Their daughter Belle is my ancestor and she was born in Illinois, about 1869. Her name may have been Mary Belle.

Belle had brothers Davis N. (1880 census has David M.) and Marshall and sister Myrtle. (Had four other siblings too, but they were unnamed in Elizabeth's obit and were deceased per obit which was from 1923; one was Rebecca M. per 1880 census).

Any help on how Jonathan connects to the other Kimbolton area GIBSONs??? I'd like to order his death cert to get his parents names, but I only have the year from his tombstone inscription and cannot find him in the Ohio on-line death cert. index. If I had a more complete date, I could even search the newspapers for his obit and hope it names his parents.

Thanks! --Celia :o)
