I am working on very early Gibson families in Floyd Co. KY that came from Scott Co. VA and NC.

Do you have Martin Gibson, Sr.'s parents?

Were they Archibald Gibson , Sr. & Bethsheba "Vashti" Cole both died in IN?

Do you have the children & their spouses of Archibald Gibson, Sr. and Vashti?

I believe that William Gibson b. abt. 1770 VA died after 1850 Pike Co. KY is a brother to Archibald Gibson.

William Gibson had a son Joel Gibson that married 1. Mary "Polly" Spears May 20, 1829 Pike Co. KY. Married 2. Rhoda "Rody" (Havins) Raines, 10 AUG 1865, Pike Co. KY.

Rhoda Havins married 1. Marriage 1 Charles D. Rains b: ABT 1831 in Kentucky Married: 25 DEC 1855 in Pike Co., KY

Marriage of Joel Gibson & Polly Speers/Mary "Polly" Spears
I believe that Lambert Gibson is a brother to Joel Gibson. Lambert Gibson can be found in census of Scott Co. VA.

SOURCE: Book, MARRIAGE BONDS PIKE CO. KY 1822-1865 By Clyde Runyon

Hi, I always wondered about Lambert Gibson? I didnt know where that connection came in. Also you may be right about Archibald being the brother to said William Gipson. I was wondering where u got the info? I have been at a standstill with this.... I have been trying to find the parents of said David Dameron Gipson in the 1850 census. He is in the household of William and Elizabeth 80 yrs old.
The William Gipson listed in the 1850 Pike County census is the grandfather to the David Gipson 16yrs old also listed. This David is "David Dameron Gipson,Gibson" my ggrandfather.

I have been working on my Gibson ancestors for many, many years. Back abt. 1995 I received from Fred Reed a Gibson File, his ancestors. I have so many ties into this Gibson Family, things just start falling into place.

It is impossible for me to say that all of the information in the file that Fred Reed sent to me is verified and totally correct; but with so many Gibson researchers working on this Gibson Line using legal records, census, tax records, etc. I believe believe that these records verify much of the information.

Interested in Gibson line- have you came across any Hatfields in your line? My grandfather was George Gibson Hatfield- born 1934 in Wayne Co. KY- I am not positive but have enough reason to believe his mother's maiden name was Gibson .
