Re: Captain Robert Napier, son of Dr. Patrick Napier
I think that Stephen Napier was the brother of my husband's ancestress, Judith Napier/Napper Gibson born in Va. 1726 or so and married Jacob Gibson.Judith died about 1783 in Camden Dist., SC and the widow, Rev. Jacob Gibson married second the widow of Patrick Burns named Sarah Burns.She is mentioned as Jacob's wife by maiden name in the account of a Morgan Edwards as he was tracing and visiting Baptist churches from Delaware and southwards into South Carolina, written in the 1770s. He mentioned that Jacob was a bred a Churchman (Anglican) from Virginia when encountered Rev. Jacob Gibson at his church in SC.
Judith Gibson, d/o Jacob, md. a Henry Jones and named a son, Gilbert Jones so I am thinking these names lead me to believe Jacob and Judith are from the Louisa Co., Va. area?
