G B H Gibbs & Rachel Kelley
Posted by: William Gibbs (ID *****5722) Date: October 06, 2009 at 13:53:08

Need help: Looking for the marriage of one G B H Gibbs & Rachel Kelley (Kelly), possibly in Virginia, Kentucky or Missouri. According to all records she was born in Kentucky in 1825 to Matthias & Abigail (Sturgill) Kelley. Her parents lived in the 1820ís in Kentucky & moved back to Lee county Virginia between 1830-1850. They moved to Missouri in the 1850ís-1860ís & returned to Lee county Virginia in the 1860ís or 1870ís. I have not been able to find any connection between G B H Gibbs or Rachel Kelley (Kelly) but according to the Kelley information Rachel & GBH did get married & they had a son by the name of Mathias Johnson Gibbs who was born in Missouri in 1855. According to census records for Mathias Johnson Gibbs his father was born in Kentucky & that may be how he and Rachel met. Any help as to how to prove any of this by a verifiable paper trail would be greatly appreciated.
Need definitive information on the marriage of G B H Gibbs & Rachel Kelley (Kelly) and a birth record for Mathias Johnson Gibbs.
