Gibson Family of Craven County, South Carolina
Yesterday was a "South Carolina Research" day for me. No, I did not travel to South Carolina. I simply perused online books available through GoogleBooks (quite a few, I might add) about the history of South Carolina. And yes, I am still looking for the parents of my great-great-great-grandfather, John P. Gibson, born about 1799 in South Carolina. Thanks to bits and pieces of Gibson family history found in one of those online books, I have now confirmed that Gideon Gibson and Jordan Gibson, born in the 1700s, were brothers. I was unsuccessful, however, in uncovering the names of their parents who had allegedly migrated to Craven County, South Carolina from Virginia. Next, I plan to research the descendants of these two Gibson brothers, Jordan and Gideon - it stands to reason that John P. Gibson, must be one of them.
