James, Any additional information about this family, especially Elizabeth and her family would be helpful as I am trying to verify or refute information which has been given me by descendents of the Gibbs family linking Elizabeth Loring and husband William Gibbs to our Gibbs lineage. What little I have is William Gibbs married Elizabeth Loring 27 Oct 1774 Boston, Suffolk, MA. I have found two children born to them - Catharine Gibbs, christened 18 Mar 1788 Princetown, Schenectady, NY and John Gibbs,christened 1790 Princetown, Schenectady, NY. This is per the records of Helderberg Reformed Church, Guilderland, NY. I have been unable to find, but I have been told that two other children existed - William and James Gibbs.Supposedly, son William eventually married Mehitable Dowin of Dutch descent and their family consisted of Benjamin L., William, James, John D., and Sarah. Three of these brothers went on to settle and area of Wisconsin in 1836 which became known as Gibbsville.The more senior William who married Elizabeth Loring was to have emigrated from England to Boston in 1773.
