SIMPSON posted by Walter Parrish on Tuesday, August 14, 2001

I am looking for the parents of John SIMPSON (b abt 1816), Franklin B SIMPSON (b about 1828), Gideon Blackburn SIMPSON (b abt 1840), and James H and William C SIMPSON (b abt 1841). I have reason to believe that their parents had died prior to 1850, as the 1850 census shows Gideon, William and James living with Franklin and his family. I assume that Hendley SIMPSON is related but I don’t know the relationship. The 1840 Census shows Hendley, William M and John F SIMPSON all living in Macoupin County. Any help would be welcomed.

BALDWIN, BOLTZ, DALTON, GATES, GIBSON, SELL, WEIR, WRIGHT posted by Marti (Baldwin) Swanson on Friday, January 4, 2002

Charles “Charlie” GIBSON, b IL abt 1869 Charles “Charlie” GIBSON was born in IL about 1869, the son of Isham GIBSON II (26 Jan 1845 IL-5 July 1883 Turney, Clinton Co, MO; buried Brethren Cemetery, Clinton Co, MO) and Amanda Jane BALDWIN GIBSON (3 Feb 1847 Montgomery Co, IN-25 Sept 1870; buried Virden Cemetery, Macoupin Co, IL). Isham and Amanda married 23 Dec 1868 in Sangamon Co, IL. Son Charlie, a family legend until he appeared in the 1880 Bates Co, MO, census, was "Charles" and age 11 in that census. Amanda was one of twelve children of William Crooks BALDWIN (1809 Butler Co, OH-3 June 1889 Virden, Macoupin Co, IL; buried Virden) and Cyrena DALTON BALDWIN (14 July 1815? Madison Co, KY-2 July 1880 Virden, Macoupin Co, IL; buried Virden). Other children were John M, Julia A, Francis Marion, William Alexander, Jerome Bonaparte “Joe,” an unknown son, Amy Elizabeth, Thomas Hampton, Buel, Amy Ann “Emma” BOLTZ, and Mary Virginia “Mollie” WEIR. Isham II was the s/o Isham GIBSON I (1803 TN-6 Dec 1875 MO; buried Rogers Cemetery, Bates Co, MO) & Elizabeth GATES GIBSON (1810 KY-20 Dec 1879 MO). Other children of Isham I & Elizabeth were Andrew P, Javan, Daniel Boone, George W, Lean C, Frances Garth, Alexander M, Elizabeth, Roxana Gitlin, and Slitha/Celithia Cummings. Another child died in infancy. The senior Gibsons migrated to Bates Co, MO, in 1871 after Isham I’s long career as an itinerant Brethren preacher in southern IL. They undoubtedly had Isham II and toddler Charlie in tow. George Sell had been sent to Clinton Co by the Brethren church. Perhaps that explains how Isham II and Emma met. In any event, Emma SELL (17 Feb 1855 Blair Co, PA-11 Aug 1927) became the second wife of Isham GIBSON II on 2 May 1872 in Clinton Co, MO. Emma's first son was born about 1873; at least three additional children followed. After Isham's death, she married Robert C WRIGHT 25 Nov 1885 in Clinton Co, MO, and had at least three more children. Emma was the d/o George SELL (1833-1913; buried Brethren Cemetery, Clinton Co, MO, next to son-in-law Isham GIBSON II) and his wife Elizabeth (1834-1911). They had had at least 2 daughters, Laura and Emma. Children of Isham Gibson II: Charles (11 in 1880 census) Wilburn (7 in 1880 census) George (5 in 1880 census) Earnest [sic] (3 in 1880 census) Bertha (b July 1881) I would appreciate receiving any information regarding what happened to Charles Gibson after 1880. I have a good deal of information on his ancestors and their descendants and would be delighted to share. Marti (Baldwin) Swanson at cygnetnest@aol.com
