I am researching the family of William Gipson, born ca 1808. He married Sarah ? ca 1835. Three children are known: Daniel (c1840-c1875), George Columbus "Lum" (c1845-c1895), and Sarah L. It apperas that William had died before the 1870 census. At that that time his widow Sarah, and the 3 children were living in Lincoln County, TN. There is also some evidence that this family had connections in Wayne County, TN. By 1880 the family had removed to McNairy County, TN. I have hit a brick wall on this family. Will be glad to share info with anyone researching this family. The family name was spelled both GIPSON and GIBSON.
