Andrew Gibson
Posted by: Andrea (ID *****4308) Date: August 17, 2002 at 15:17:36

I have information from "The History of Henderson County: The Andrew Gibson Family History" that Andrew Gibson was born in Scotland appx. 1708. He migrated to America in 1728 or 1730 and lived in Princess Ann County, Va where he met a woman named Mary ?. they married and moved to North Carolina. They had a child named Joel Gibson (that I'm a descendent of) and other children (John, James, and more I don't know names of) all were born in Princesss Ann county, Va.

I've seen on some other sites that the first Gibson (from my line) to come to America was a John Gibson (born around 1720 or 30) and moved here in a different year. I was wondering if anyone has information to support or contradict this. I'm hoping to clarify who our first generation American Gibson ancestor was. THanks for any help,
