Discussion about John Gibson that cites his military record: http://www.bytown.net/gibson.htmhttp://www.bytown.net/gibson.htm (Though how can I be sure that that's the same John Gibson?)
John Gibson is either from England or Ireland (the 1852 census says England, but that military record says Ireland). His age in the census suggests he was born in 1787, and the military record suggests 1781.
Julia is even more elusive. I got her maiden name from some of her children's marriage records. Occasionally people call her Julia Ann Hornsby Orange, saying that she is called that in some of her records, though I haven't actually found a record that says that. The Internet seems to be full of people talking about her, yet not a record in sight!
Judging by the censuses, Julia was born around 1815-1821. Some of the censuses say she was born in Ontario, but most say Quebec.
Anything at all about these two would be helpful! A marriage record (this would be the best thing ever!), a birth record for either one of them, anything. Julia's father was born in Ireland, according to her census records, so breaking this brick wall is my key to getting a Certificate of Irish Heritage! (And that would be so neat!)
