No Randolph Co., NC untill1790; the State Census of NC 1784-1787 doesnot list a Stephen/Steven GIPSON/GIBSON.
North Carolina Wills: 1665-1900 doesnot list any for a STEVEN/STEPHEN-GIPSON/GIBSON
The David GIBSON[not GIPSON] is the one died in 1808 per the North Carolina Wills book by Thornton W. Mitchell Revised Editon. There was one I couldn't get.That maybe the one missing from the files; NR LISTED FOR IT IS INCORRECT. So what is the correct nr to find it...
I'm still cking my files.The first name of MAJOR is associated with the GIBSON line.So I will do somemore looking under GIPSON as I wondered what happened to him .If I am lucky maybe Sat.26th June.
