Descendants of Moses Gibson See
Gibson Endnotes here.
GIBSON was born Abt. 1805 in NC, and died Bet. 1865 - 1867 in
Logan Co., KY. He married E. XXXX Bef. 1834. She was born
Abt. 1805 in NC, and died Bef. 1860 in Logan Co., KY.
Notes for MOSES GIBSON: John P. Gibson's death
certificate lists Moses as his father, born in VA, but does not list
the mother. Census records indicate that Moses was born in NC.
Wills/Settlements, Logan Co., 1856-1874, page 108
GIPSON, MOSES, Equity Box 100, Case #2627
In a suit by Henry Lawson, adm. of Gipson, vs. Gipson heirs to
seek permission to sell some land to pay creditors, heirs are listed
as Moses Gipson, Jr., son; Mary Gipson, daughter who married Henry
Rogers; John Gipson, son; Elizabeth Gipson, daughter, who married a
Miller (deceased); Angeline Gipson, daughter-in-law who married Coon
Gipson, deceased son of Moses Gipson; Esley and Charley Gipson,
grandsons and children of Coon and Angeline Gipson. Filed 12 Jan
1868. Adm: Henry Lawson. Died intestate.
Apparently he was deep in debt with several outstanding notes
when he died. To help pay the notes, land that he owned was to be
sold at auction. He originally had 50 acres advertised for sale but
19 off the south end had been sold previously and the auction was
changed to 31 acres. By the same token, he was owed a few hundred
dollars by R. C. Beaucamp that he took to court to collect. I
haven't found a record where Beaucamp paid Moses his notes.
The will does not mention Julius, Charles or James. One of the
three is "Coon." It probably isn't Charles because he left to fight
in the Civil War and was too young to have two children and he died
in Jan 1862. Since the marriage record shows "L. A." I believe
Julius was "Coon" because of his initials J and L are easy to
misinterpret in the old records.
1850 Logan Co. Census: Moses Gipson, age 45, farmer, NC; E.
Gipson, age 45, NC; Mary A., age 16; John P., age 14; Julius A., age
12; Charles L., age 10; James M., age 6; Moses, age 2.
1860 Logan Co. Census: Moses Gibson, age 54, overseer, NC is
listed in the home of George A. Smith, age 47, farmer, born KY with
his wife Elvira, age 26, born TN
Unidentified Gibsons: Alonzo Smith Gibson, born 7 Jun 1842
in Simpson Co., KY, died 11 Mar 1912, married Elizabeth E. Williams
2 Apr 1868 (MBB 6-229) in Logan Co. She was born 11 Jun 1852, died
18 Mar 1911, daughter Luella, born 5 Aug 1875, died 18 Jun 1878. His
death certificate shows his parents as John Gibson (born in SC) and
XX Cook. He died of paralysis due to a former stroke at the age of
70 years 2 months and 4 days. All three are buried in Kennerlys
Chapel Cemetery in Lewisburg. 1870 Logan Co. Census, Gordonsville
Dist: #111 Alonzo Gibson, age 28, farmer, KY; Elizabeth, age 18, KY;
William, age 2/12, KY; Susan, age 64, (Alonzo's mother - XX Cook?)

William H. Gibson, born 1870, died 1963, married Cynthia A.
Parrish 19 Jan 1888 Logan Co. Cynthia was born 1869, died 1910.
Record of a Moses Gibson marrying Elizabeth Paisley in NC but too
soon to be this one. That Gibson family wound up in AR. Moses Gibson
married Elizabeth "Betty" Winn 30 Mar 1795 in Farquier Co., VA.
Moses Gibson married Polly Foster 7 Sep 1805 in Ohio Co., KY.
1810 Guilford Co., NC, Dwelling 173, Township L - listing for Moses
Notes for E. XXXX: The "E" may be Elizabeth (they
later named a daughter Elizabeth and that was a popular name). There
is an Elizabeth Gibson in the 1910 Logan Co. census at age 90,
widow, KY VA KY. That would put her birth year about 1820. I'm
assuming Elizabeth, the wife of Moses, died before 1860 since she is
not in the census with him or any or their children - at least not
those in Logan Co.

Note that John's death certificate shows Moses born in VA instead
of NC but everything else indicates NC. He died from influenza in
the epidemic of 1918. Death information was given by Wilce Gibson
(which is probably his son, Wilson). Sue Lynn's book, Descendants of
James Thomas Wilson, identifies Millard as the son of John W.
Gibson, born 21 Aug 1887, died 28 May 1968 and identifies John P.'s
son as William F.
18 Jan 1908, Deed Book 88, page 25. John bought 86 acres of land
on Mud River for $400 from W. L. Penrod - agent for Lewis M. and
