Jerome Bonapart Allred and the Allied Family of Gibson
The research on these direct Allied lines was begun in the 1970s by Louise J. Gibson Allred Bourke [1stm.]Parcel[2edm] and Phylis Gibson Allred Josylin. Grandaughters of Jerome B. Russell Allred and Anne Eliza[Elizabeth Anne Slack Gibson, his 2ed wife. I have continued their research of these lines. This line of Gibson is a Native American line, of I believe Saponi Indian. Refs are the early land records of Orange Co., NC and then Randolph Co., NC listed as Malotto. Even though Thomas Gibson father of David served in the Revolutionary War first, from Guilford Co., NC. I havenot found land records there for him. There is a family of Gibson there, straight from Scotland. Not to be confused with this one of Orange Co.,/Randolph Co., NC. Out of VA, ref: Melungeons: examining an Appalachian Legend, by Pat Spurlock Elder. Also same ref; pg 110 TEETH.
Mongoloid racial types have bell-shaped incisors with the back of the incisor being quite concave. These are commonly referred to as shovel-shaped incisors . Occasionally, enamel "pearls" grow at the root area. This refers to the 4ea. upper front and lower teeth.
A missing third molar, commonly called a wisdom tooth, is missing in 70% of the Mongoloid population, in 20% of the Caucasoid, and in 3% of the Negroid. A phenomenon called "ridging" is common in Negroes but not in other races. Specific to Native Americans are very short widely spaced roots. [she refs: Carleton S. Coon, "The Origin of Races]... But the teeth of the children are widely spaced and when the adult teeth come in, very even. Having some or a combination of these characteristics indicates some type of Asian or Native American ancestry. It does not mean all Native American descendants are Melungeons. Melungeon was a term not used untill 1820 in TN. Usually applying to tri-racial. I have these teeth, my sons have these teeth and my grandaughters have these teeth. See pictures;-)
Jerome left Randolph Co., NC, sometime after 1860 and went to Hendricks Co., IN, residing with William Allred and family on their farm. There he met and married his 1st wife, Sarah Agnes Griffith 21 Oct, 1873. She died 7 July, 1881 and is burried in the White Lick Baptist Church Cemetery, Pittsboro, Hendricks Co., IN with 3ea Fe children. Her surviving child, a son, Orlando Allred. Jerome returned to North Carolina with his son, after 1881 as he is still on the 1880 census of Indiana, Hendricks Co., Lincoln twp. In the 1880 North Carolina Census of Randolph Co., you find Claiborne Spencer Allred and sister Lavina living next door to Jesse Gibson, Wife Lucinda Slack Gibson and daughter Anne E. Gibson. In 12 Dec, 1882 Jerome B. Allred and Anne E. Gibson were married in Randolph Co., NC. They removed to Benton Co., AR.
Anne Eliza [Elizabeth Anne Gibson Allred] 1882
Jesse Gibson Gibson [sic] and Lucinda [Auman/Wright]Slack were both born at the farm of either Lucinda's grandmother, Maria Margaret Auman or on the farm of Henry Auman Slack and wife Sarah [Sally] Wright. At this time I cannot give you a ref: for Henry Slack and Sally Wright as being the right parents for Lucinda. This connection is from William Auman of Randolph Co., NC. The following is what I posted several places on line, about these families, as the parents of Jesse Gibson are David Gibson and Nancy Gibson Gibson[sic].
Census records Randolph Co., NC.
For the Family of David GIBSON who was living with the SLACK Family of Charles,Henry,John,Margaret. On # 78 of the 1840 census. He is listed as GIBSON before and after, but for some reason when living on the SLACK Farm, he was listed as Gipson. Which you can only see looking at the INDEX, not the actual pgs of the CENSUS, unless they are on the film. What is on the internet for those Census years(doesn't show the census nrs)shows DAVID GIPSON LIVING WITH THEM, during 1830/1840. 1850 living on his own place(IT APPEARS HE MARRIED A COUSIN, NANCY GIBSON) 25 July, 1816 in Randolph Co., NC. His son direct to my line; Jesse(Jeptha)GIBSON married LUCINDA SLACK. Their issue: below. It also appears from the research of Edith Wilson Hutton that Nancy, may have had other children before she married David Gibson.

Nancy Elizabeth b. 12 Feb, 1852 m. George Cox
Martha Jane, b. 7 July, 1853 m. Calivin I. Moon
Anne Eliza [Elizabeth Anne] b. 24 Feb, 1855 m. Jerome B. Allred
Margaret Louise, b. 1 Dec, 1857 m. Matthew Gilbert Buie
Ruth Emma, b.17 Mar,1860. Here is where there are questions as she is not on the 1860 census, that I can find. I do find them with a son.
John Gibson b. 1/12 of 1860. Between 1860/1870 he died. In 1870 Ruth Emma is there showing she was born in 1860. So were they twins? The Slack are known for twins. Many were farmed out. She m. William H. Tippett.
In May of 2009 I was contacted and sent two pictures by Edith Wilson Hutton of Knoxville, TN. She was doing genealogy research for her daughter-in-law, Martha Fern Brock Hutton. Who was descended from Calvin I. Moon and Martha Jane Gibson all of Randolph Co., NC. The pictures were of Lucinda Auman/Wright Slack Gibson before 1912 but probably after 1901 when Jesse died. Also a group picture of the 4ea of the Gibson sisters. They are wearing black. We think for the furneral of Lucinda in 1912, Randolph Co., NC. Anne Eliza is not in the picture as she was decd in 1904, in AR . We believe the one on the right hand side is Martha Jane Gibson Moon. The other 3ea we would like to ID. We are hoping someone will have other pictures down the Gibson line with first names.
