Ruth I believe we are taking about the same Elizabeth Jane Alby and Thomas J. Gibson, as they had among their children a Mary and a Pearl. Here are the problems: 1.) I have never came across a middle name for Thomas.Upon contacting my ex-husband's grandmother, she said that she didn't know of a middle name for Thomas, only hear him called Thomas J. 2.) Thomas' parents were Robert Gibson and Sarah Jane Gibson of Mercer County, Kentucky.They were 1 or 2nd cousins, I believe.They were married December 10, 1852, he 22 and she 13.Do you have any other children of your unknown and Anna Richardson Gibson (besides Thomas)to compare to see if we are talking about the same people? 3.) You said that Thomas and Elizabeth had two daughters, they actually had 7 children altogether, Mary, Pearl, Bessie, Alma, Clarence, William, and Thomas.The Mary and Pearl I have listed have the spouses that you mentioned. So I believe that I am on the right track.
I do have children for Robert and Sarah, but have no further info for them to compare.If I understood Gammie tonight, I think that they are the buried on old hwy 29.(Some grandparent is located there, as she kept going on about it but she ketp calling them Grandparents, so I got a little confused, easy to do with her as she talks about everyone instead of jsut what you called for!) I am going to have to drive hwy 29 and see if I can find this mini, field-type cemetery and see if I can locate them.
I would be interested in any other info you have the Gibsons and/or the Alby/Albees, and knowing how you might be related.
