Andrew Gibbens was born in Bronson, Branch Co, MI in 1845. He married Elizabeth Jobes in MI. They had two children, Frances, 1868, and Bertha, 1872. Both were born in MI.
Andrew and Elizabeth were divorced in Williams Co, OH. He got custody of the children. I found Bertha on the 1880 census as living with her dad and step-mother, Della Taylor in Williams Co, OH. I have not been able to find Frances in Williams Co. Family lived in Williams Co and also in Branch Co. I am trying to see if she was staying with a relative at this time.
I am trying to find the 1870 census for Branch Co, MI on line. (and not finding it) Do you have an URL for the 1870 Branch Co, MI census?
