According to the History of Parker County, 1980, pages 292-293 is this. "John and Mary Sherrill Dent Gibson came to Texas from Salem, Misouri in 1858 with their children, John Dent, Mary Elizabeth and James David 'Jim" Gibson. Mary had been widowed by the death of Walter Dent in Calif. gold field or enroute there in 1850s. First to Hood then over the line in Parker County along Long Creek. Six more children were born Fayette, Nora, Jane, Laura, Ellen, and Matt (William Madison)Gibson. Matt was born 1871." In Long Creek cemetery, just south of Parker line is this- J. W. Gibson 6 Feb.1832 - 15 March 1887
Mary C. Gibson 10 Sept. 1831 - 16 April 1895
The C. could be a G for Mary.
Beware: A James M. 'Matt' Gibson born Ark in 1866 came to Parker County, parents John K. Gibson, 1840 Tenn -1890 TX and Harriet A. Frizzell born Tenn. 1847 died Reno Tx 1933. This Gibson family is in the far northeast part of Parker County. The History Book story can be had from the Weatherford Public Library, 1014 Charles, Weatherford TX 76086 or 817 598-4150.
