My husband descends from Rev. Jacob Gibson of Va., d. 1793 in Fairfield Dist., SC, md. Judith Napier, d/o Robert and Mary Hughes Napier.His descent is through Jacob b. Fairfield Dist. SC who md. in Amite Co., Ms. 1819 Catherine McGraw, whose parents were Nathan McGraw and Phoebe Jones, also of Fairfield Dist., SC...Nathan s/o David McGraw and Phoebe daughter of Ralph Jones and his wife Mary.This part of the McGraw family lived in Tn. for a while then back to SC and then migrated about 1811 or 12 to Amite Co., Ms.
The chn. of Jacob Gibson (grandson of Rev. Jacob and son of Jacob md. Mary Fort, d/o Jesse Fort) and Catherine McGraw Gibson were:Ralph Jones Gibson md. 1) Clarissa Wallace 2) Louisa Catherine Ramsey-he born 1827 and died 1888; Jacob Gibson (5th)md. Margaret Hamilton-died in CW; Mary md. Benjamin Johnson....is this coincidence?(I have the bible record Jacob Henry Gibson, s/o Ralph Jones, had left in a coat pocket of h is church suit, which gave the entries on the family of Nathan and Phoebe Jones McGraw and the children-found by Jacob's daughters at his death).
Benjamin Johnson's families heirs with the Gibsons on some land and they lived on a plantation called Leatherwood in Boggue Chitto, Pike Co., Ms. Catherine McGraw Gibson md. second a Colonel Jesse Thomas the first Sunday in November in 1842 so I am assuming that Jacob died prior to this time..bible record gives date of Catherine's marriage and lots of info on the Thomas family also. Ben Johnsons children by Mary Gibson was Kenzie Johnson and I can't recall the other but they intermarried with Piggott family of the Kentwood, La. area.
