Nicholas Gibson



This is a followup to my last blog regarding Nicholas Gibson and his DNA. That blog drew a response from Jack Goins on the Melungeon Rootsweb list as well as his blog, I'd like to address it here. 

Basically what I wrote was there are numerous online trees that claim Thomas Gibson who died 1734 in Hanover Co., Virginia, the father of Valentine Gibson, was the son of Nicholas Gibson and Deanna Martin. I don't know the source for this, I have not been able to find one in 27 years. 

There are though 3,196 trees at ancestry.com that claim Nicholas is the grandfather of Valentine Gibson.  What I posted was the administrators of the Core Melungeon  DNA Project have apparently approved someone who claims  to descend from Nicholas Gibson.  Valentine's DNA does not match the Melungeon Gibsons.  Now I do not know who Valentine's grandfather was but I do know that there is no document that says Thomas Gibson was his son.

Of these 3,196 trees listing Thomas Gibson as the son of Nicholas almost half of them, 1,411, have Thomas' birthdate as 1691.  Thomas was not born in 1691, he is found in the records of St. Peter's parish in 1695-1696 raising  a bastard child. Pretty neat trick for a four-year old. 
octob’r ye 10, 1695.  ST. PETER’S PARISH, Dr., to ye following Charge To Mary Gibson upon acc’t drawn by ye Church wardens  208 
To Tho. Gibson for keeping a Bastard Child 10 months & a half 
To Thomas Gibson for keeping a bastard child a year and a half  1500 16th day of November, 1696.
Here is a typical Family Group Sheet showing Nicholas as Thomas' father.




John Gibson born in England?  Eunice born 1729?  (In 1734 Eunice's son Valentine Gibson Nicks was witnessing a deed.)  Mary C born in 1720?  Mary, daughter of Thomas, also had grown children in 1734,  according to her father's will, she married to Richard Brooks, but this tree has her married to someone else.

Another Nicholas Gibson Typical Tree from ancestry;


Thomas born in 1691 "his wife Mary Allen" born 50 years before him, in 1642. Daughter Mary in 1658 BEFORE Thomas was born while Frances and Eunice are born when Thomas is 8.  

Here we have one tree that shows Thomas born about 1661 with a son Thomas Gibson Jr., born in 1718,  This is suppose to connect Nicholas to the Melungeon Gibson but are there any sources?  No, but they have added this note;


It is very confusing for the beginner trying to find their family.  One would find something like this that says DNA PROVES Nicholas is the ancestor of these men and they believe it. I can understand beginners copy and pasting this but those of us who call ourselves genealogists, who write books, blogs, etc, should know better and spreading this misinformation, especially lending credence though DNA to a pedigree not backed up by documentation is irresponsible. 

If anyone connected to the Core Melungeon DNA project had checked ancestry.com (search STORIES for Nicholas Gibson) they would have found not one document naming his descendants in those 3000+ trees. 

Jack Goins writes on his blog;
"kit # 319509 most distant ancestor is Nicholas Gibson. The problem is non-family members like Pezzullo wants to be the source for all the Core Melungeons genealogy. 
Joanne genealogy on Nicholas is the real confusion and does not match his Y-DNA results. The 4 listed below who match him on the 25 marker core Y-DNA meaning at some point in history they had the same male common ancestor, their genealogy by Kathy James.
kit # 319509 Nicholas Gibson is a very close match to almost all the core Gibson Melungeons

shake head gif photo: HEAD SHAKE FAST HEADSHAKEFAST.gifAnd this is suppose to prove Nicholas Gibson is an ancestor of the Melungeons?  Do the Adminstrators of this Core DNA project not ask for proof of your earliest ancestor?  Do they not check your pedigree for accuaracy ? We can clearly see the numbers these administrators have entered for these five people match.  The question is where are the documents that link them together?  A bunch of numbers on a page is meaningless. 
This puts doubt on this entire project.  How many other results have they accepted at face value?  Jack Goins can post all the core Gibson Melungeons but it still isn't going to prove Nicholas Gibson left any descendants.  

 P.S. Joanne Pezzullo wants nothing at all to do with this Core Melungeon Project, I would not want my name associated with this in anyway.

GIBSONS - DNA & ROTTEN LIMBS



For those who are concerned with my DNA for whatever reason here it is:





And here is my sisters





My Kit  at gedmatch.com is A212914 it is listed at the Gibson Research Page on Facebook [found here]  and has been for some time.  I don't know where else I was supposed to post this but apparently some bloggers have reason to believe I am hiding something I would guess.   My sister's Kit is A723804. Please let me know if either of us show up in your matches.
----------------------------------------------------
There is no other family I know of more misrepresented at ancestry.com than the Gibson family.  Many of these fantastical ancestries are the flawed work of Paul Heinegg. Even though Heinegg uses qualifiers, question marks. etc., and has changed the Gibson genealogy numerous times it is easy to spot this flawed research in the online trees. There are thousands of Gibson trees at ancestry.com as well as online trees with ROTTEN LIMBS.

DNA is the best thing that has come along for genealogists since the Internet. The Y-Male testing that follows the male line back through father to father etc., is super for connecting families.  Autosomal testing or the cousin finder has also broken down many walls in the family tree, both by matching cousins and also NOT matching people you thought were your cousins.

Take Thomas Gibson who died in 1734 in Hanover County, Virginia for instance. Researchers were positive he was the ancestor of Thomas Gibson who is found in Orange County, North Carolina and is ancestor of at least some of the Melungeon Gibsons.  DNA of four of Valentine Gibson's descendants, the son of Thomas died 1734 Hanover DOES NOT MATCH the Melungeon Gibsons proving they are not related.  Further testing of autosomal also shows no 'cousin finder' matches between these two families.

Still, there are those that insisted despite the Y DNA not matching they had to be related, perhaps an NPE [Non Parental Event] but one would think if they didn't have the same father but had the same mother, surely the 'cousin finder' would show all the descendants of Valentine matching the descendants of Thomas Gibson the Melungeon. But it does not, there are no matches.  That doesn't seem to change anything, those who have sworn by the DNA matching for years, now discard it because it is proving something that they do not want to be proved, for whatever reasons.

And now this is spilling over into the DNA projects.  After 27 years of researching the family of Valentine and his father Thomas I have not found one record that shows who the mother of Valentine was.  Yet thousands of trees report it was Mary Allen.

Not one piece of evidence can be found as to the parents of Thomas Gibson who died in 1734 was, yet thousands of trees lists them as Nicholas and Deanna Martin Gibson.  Where this comes from I have no clue.  Most of these trees go on to claim Nicholas' parents as Thomas Gibson died 1652 in York with a wife Elizabeth BOUTH or SOUTH.  Thomas who died in 1652 did indeed have a son Nicholas and a wife Elizabeth but I have written to half of the online trees asking for a source.  Most don't answer and the ones that do simply reply they have no idea, they just copied it from someone else.

Now Elizabeth BOUTH, daughter of Robeth Bouth received gifts from Thomas Gibson in York County "for reasons known only to him" and this is the basis for Elizabeth BOUTH being the wife of  Thomas Gibson.  However the daughter Elizabeth of Robert Bouth married to Patrick Napier, of that there is no doubt and after this was pointed how number times in the past years Elizabeth BOUTH then became Elizabeth SOUTH, again with not one bit of evidence.

Along comes DNA and now we have a real mess. Instead of sawing off some of these ROTTEN LIMBS we are now GRAFTING more rotten ones on to this Gibson family tree.

At the Gibson DNA Project we have the four descendants of Valentine Gibson, Haplogroup I M-253 their genealogies I have posted can be found HERE. Researchers who have found these ROTTEN TREES with the father of Ezekiel Gibson who died in Floyd County, Kentucky as Valentine Gibson are now listing Valentine -- 'and his grandfather Nicholas' as matching the Melungeon Gibsons who are Haplogroup R M-269.  Kit #341147 and Kit #319509

Now we know this is impossible as the Haplogroups  do not match and one of them is obviously wrong, very wrong.  I have posted the the documents showing Valentine's descendants here  Valentine Gibson - His DNA & His Descendants, here Same Name Syndrome, and here Valentine Gibson .  Where are the documents, the sources, the evidence, the webpages, etc., that show Valentine Gibson was related to the Melungeon  Gibsons?  I don't know.  Even when these people are sent the above evidence they refuse to change their bloated, ROTTEN TREES or correct the unsubstantiated DNA results.

And now it has crept into the CORE MELUNGEON PROJECT, Kit #319509Nicholas Gibson, father of Thomas and grandson of Valentine is now an official Melungeon.  I don't know who the person is overseeing the genealogies people submit to the CORE MELUNGEON PROJECT  but assume it must be Janet Crain, Jack Goins,  or Roberta Estes as I understand Kathy James has resigned.

Is this the bar these administrators set to be included as a CORE Melungeon? Nicholas Gibson who has not one single document to any sons but listed as grandfather of Valentine Gibson whose DNA does not match the Nicholas Gibson in the Core Melungeon project.  Are there two Nicholas Gibsons?  I think not, just more faulty research now ** proven ** by DNA.

Archibald & Ezekiel Gibson


These are some research notes I have put together that may help to find the parents or siblings of Archibald and Ezekiel Gibson.  Any corrections, comments, or additions are welcome.  


Below is the 67 marker results of a descendant of Archibald and Ezekiel Gibson who many have determined were brothers over the years.  They not only match exactly at 67-67 they also have the same mutation.



FamilyTree DNA says Archibald and Ezekiel are 'very tightly matched.'





The BOLDED 19 is a mutation that only appeared in Archibald's line and that of a James F. Gibson - unknown line - until the recent results of Miles Gibson was added. 

13 24 14 11 11 14 12 12 13 13 13 29 17 9 10 10 11 25 15 19 28 15 15 16 17 11 12 19 23 15 15 19 17 35 40 12 12 11 9 15 16 8 10 10 8 10 10 12 22 23 17 10 12 12 16 8 13 22 20 13 12 11 13 11 11 12 12

Val Van Zee, late admisitrator of the Gibson DNA

Project did a 'Mutation Nodes Chart' where she noted the mutation 19  -- 'Archibald's father or grandfather may have passed the mutation to his descendants."

There are so many lines represented in this project and with none of them having this mutation it is likely this mutation was passed from their father who would appear to be Joel Gibson.



1790 Wilkes County, North Carolina  (Note Jo Nicols next to Ezekiel, Joseph Nicols witnessed the will of Thomas Gibson with Joel and Champ Gibson.)


1800 Ashe County, North Carolina

Joel does not appear on census records, he may be living in a household, not as the head of household or he died between 1800-1810



Notes for Joel Gibson

1751 Granville Co NC [became Orange in 1753] Thomas Gibson received 640 acres on the south side of Flatt River joining John Collins on the "Rocky Branch" He later sells part of this land to Joel Gibson in 1770.  (Joel born 1735-1740 if he is father of Archibald)


5 November 1775  George Gibson Orange County will was proved in May 1776 (WB A:195)  He named his wife Mary.

SHERIFF'S SALES

Will be sold at Ashe Court House on Saturday the 18th day of June next to satisfy the taxes due for the year 1812,  and the expence and cost of advertising the same.  50 acres of land of Archibald Gipson  on Cranberry Creek



ARCHIBALD & WILLIAM GIBSON

Archibald Gibson was 'said to have been born' in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. I can find no source for this anywhere.  It is possible that someone interpreted the 'born in Pennsylvania' from the 1850 Hendricks County, Indiana census to be a 'mistake' and it was really Pittsylvania.  It may be so but again there is nothing to show that Archibald was born there. 

William Gibson, the Revolutionary Soldier says in his pension application;

He was informed by his mother that he was born in the year 1753 but he has no record of his age. When called into service, he was living in Guilford County N. C.,  (1777) but volunteered in Rowan County in the same state -- He was as he is informed born at Monck's Corner S.C 
 Since the Revolution, he lived 3 years in Guilford County N. C. -- 2 years in Winchester Virginia -- thence 1 year in Rockingham County N.C. -- 12 years in Wilkes & Rowan Counties N. C. -- then about ___ [blank in original] on Clinch River Va, in 1800 he moved to Ky. where he resided until 1829, when he removed to this state and has resided in Boone County & in the same neighborhood for the last two years-- 
Living in Guilford in  1777 puts him there about the same time as Joel Gibson;

10 June 1779 Lambeth Dodson entered 228 acres on Guilford County, North Carolina on 9 January 1779.  It was surveyed 10 June 1779 by Joshua Smith, with William Kellam and Joel Gibson acting as chain carriers.
Came home in Dec of 1777 to find his widow mother had been tied up, beaten, house burnt and property destroyed.

Left Service in Summer of 1782
1782-1785 Guilford Co., NC
1785-1787 Winchester (Frederick Co., Va) 
1787-1788 Rockingham Co., NC
1788- 1800 Rowan and Wilkes Co., NC
1800 live on Clinch River in Virginia then moved to Clay County, Kentucky
1829 moved to Boone Co., Indiana
1832 Applied for pension from Boone Co., Indiana
1835 Died in Boone Co, Indiana

The 1787 Tax list of Wilkes County lists David Gibson and widow Mary Gibson. Could Mary be the widow of George Gibson died 1776 in Orange County?

This William Gibson follows the migration of ArchibaldGibson from Wilkes County to Kentucky, William in Clay

County, and Archibald in Perry County.

Archibald then moved to Hendricks County,Indiana and William Gibson is in the next door county of Boone. Records of these two men are sometimes confused.




Moncks Corners South Carolina

Moncks Corners began as a Trading Post and was the endof the Indian or Cherokee Trading Path in South Carolina. This may be the area where Hubbard Gibson's daughter Mary and possibly Hubbard Junior settled. 

It is interesting to note that a Thomas Gibson born about 1850 in Moncks Corners, South Carolina has a descendant that has tested and results are found at Y Search and is a 63-67 match to Ezekiel and Archibald Gibson, they are not closely related but are related.

Valentine Gibson - His DNA & His Descendants

 I have posted lenghty research on Valentine Gibson and his descendants. Whose DNA matches whose, and whose doesn't match Valentine so this will be short.  I will post the links to the other two blogs with information on Valentine and some DNA results that show matches from James Gibson who married Sarah Roark and the Revolutionary Soldier, John Gibson who died in Cumberland County, Kentucky.

First Table shows the number of matches at ancestry.com that have Ezekiel Gibson, husband of Rachel Terry of Floyd County, Kentucky as the son of VALENTINE GIBSON.



EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY FOUR trees have the wrong father for Ezekiel who died in 1826, Floyd County, Kentucky.  How would one ever correct this?

And now with DNA to confuse the issue we have people testing from Ezekiel'ls line, Y DNA as well as Autosomal, claiming Valentine as an ancestor.  Where does that leave us descendants of Valentine?  In limbo I guess.

This is the pedigree sheet of Kit # 190097  -  His cousin is Kit # 190036
This line is documented back to Arthur Addison Gibson to Garret Gibson and to James Gibson and Sarah Roark.



This 2nd Pedigree sheet is Kit # 319527 - This line is documented back from William Hogard Gibson to Jesse Douglas Gibson to Ezekiel A., son of Jesse and Margaret Monk. Jesse is the son of the Revolutionary Soldier John Gibson.  These Gibsons lived in Cumberland and Clinton County, Kentucky.



Lastly is the Pedigree chart of George Cecil Gibson born 1893 in Morgan County, Kentucky documented descendant of William K Gibson. 
He is Kit # GX-2   --- These Kit numbers are from the GIBSON DNA PROJECT at this link  http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/gibson/results





Here are two links that I have posted documents to back up this information. 



If you descend from one of these families or from Ezekiel Gibson of Floyd County I hope that you will take this DNA into consideration and read the two links, you will find it is quite clear that Ezekiel Gibson of Floyd Co., Kentucky is not the son of Valentine.

I should also point out that all Autosomal testing to date has shown no matches between the above families and those of Ezekiel Gibson and his Y DNA matches.

Jonathan Gibson Part One

I suspect this newspaper article from The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky) Sunday, September 19, 1897 may be the reason so many people want to connect Jonathan Gibson to the Charles City County Gibson families.  They may very well be related, perhaps someone may discover a document that connects them or even DNA matches.  If you have anything at all to connect Jonathan's family to the Charles City County Gibson line I would love to hear from you.







The information published in 1897 is not correct - Jonathan Gibson was born 1668 in High Knipe, Bampton, Westmoreland, England. He was the son of Richard Gibson and a Miss Wilson.  Richard was the brother of Thomas Gibson who married the granddaughter of Oliver Cromwell and also the brother of Edmund Gibson who married to Jane Langhorne, the latter being the parents of the Bishop Edmund Gibson. 

Jonathan Gibson the First married to Elizabeth Thornton, he  made his will on 30th of 7ber 1727 and it was  presented into court in King George County on the 5th of December 1729 by his widow ELIZABETH and admitted to record.  He was the father of Jonathan Gibson the Second born about 1700 and died by accidental poisoning in Faquier County, Virginia in 1724. 

Jonathan Gibson the Second married to Margaret Catlett. In 1732 Jonathan Gibson the Second penned this letter to the Bishop Edmund Gibson, a cousin of his father, as Richard Gibson and the Bishop's father, Edmund Gibson I were brothers.

Sometime in the 1980s or 1990s this was re-published in the KENTUCKY EXPLORER but they left off the last paragraph in which G.G.A is asking if there is any truth to this claim.

Genealogy From The Long Ago (1890s)


Editor's Note: We have come across an interesting collection of old clippings dealing with Kentucky family history. Since these clippings are over 100 years old, your editor feels they will be of interest to many of our readers. We will continue this column each month until the supply is gone.

Langhorne-Gibson
Very early a family of Gibsons settled in Charles City County,Virginia, on the James River. It could have possibly been the family of Jonathan Gibson. Some of the family records show that he came later to the Rappahannock. Jonathan was sheriff of King George County in 1701-2; burgess for Caroline County, 1736; in or about 1740 became the second county clerk of Orange County; and in 1744 he died from accidental poisoning. He was a brother of Edmund Gibson, bishop of London. They were the sons of Edmund Gibson and Jane Langhorne Gibson. Bishop Gibson wished to adopt one of his nephews in this country. Col. Catlett Gibson, of Culpeper, read the letter to his grandfather on the subject. The unexpected and uncongenial marriage of the bishop, late in life, broke off the negotiations.

Jonathan Gibson, according to the Catlett records and the universal traditions of the Gibsons, married Margaret Catlett, daughter of Col. John Catlett, of "Green Hill Estate;" at or about where is now Port Royal. This Col. John Catlett came from Letterbaume Parish, Kent County, England, and owned lands there, which his grandchildren inherited. He was killed by the Indians in 1670, at the attack on the fort near Port Royal. Margaret Catlett was an aunt of Rebecca Catlett, who married Frances Conway, and was the mother of President James Madison; hence Jonathan Gibson became sponsor of the president.


Rebecca Catlett Conway married James Moore. Their daughter, Jane Moore, married Erasmus Taylor, of Orange County.

Rachel Gibson Taylor was buried in the old Taylor graveyard, near Orange Courthouse; and her husband, George Taylor, who died in 1792, long after Rachel, was buried at her side.

Bishop Gregg, in his History of Old Cheraws, says, "In 1735 two important settlements were made on the Pedee, South Carolina. One of these was in Button's Neck, 20 miles below Mars Bluff and 40 miles above Georgetown. The other settlement referred to was made at a point on the east side of the river, called Sandy Bluff, two and a half miles above Mars Bluff. The families of Crawford, Saunders, Murfree, Crosby, Heighly, Berry, and shortly after, the Gibsons made up this community.


"Of the settlers at Sandy Bluff, the Murfrees, Saunders, Gibsons, and Crawfords accumulated the largest properties and became most prominent. Of the Gibsons, Gideon and Jordan were brothers. The latter went to the West as companion of Daniel Boone. Gideon Gibson came with his father from Virginia to Pedee. There is a public record of a grant to him for 550 acres of land, as early as April 1736. He settled at a place called 'Hickory Grove,' five miles from Sandy Bluff, on a large and fertile body of land, long after noted as the most valuable in that region. He had three sons. Of these, Stephen became wealthy and removed to Georgia about the year 1800. Roger, another son, removed to the West before the Revolution. Gideon Gibson was a man of very marked character, of commanding influence, and prominently connected with the leading events of the region, in which he lived. His death took place during the Revolution. He was shot at his own front door by his nephew, Col. Maurice Murphy, because he blamed Murphy for unnecessary cruelty to a Tory prisoner. Murphy was a man of ungovernable passion, which was often inflamed by strong drink."


The tradition in the family is that Gideon Gibson's father, who came from Virginia with him, was the "emigrant," and the father of Jonathan, Jordan, Edmund, the Bishop, and the first husband of Mrs. Saunders Murphy; who never came to this country, but whose five sons came with their mother.

Jonathan Gibson Part Two

Misc Notes

Jonathan Gibson married Elizabeth Thornton Conway.


William Thornton, late of Gloucester Co., but not of  Stafford Co., Power of Attorney to Jonathan Gibson of Richmond Co., to acknowledge D. of G. to his 4 children,  1708

Jonathan Gibson established Gibsons Tobacco Warehouse on the Rappahannock on the dower land of his wife, Elizabeth Thornton Conway Gibson; it was located immediately opposite Port Royal in Caroline County across and on the south bank of the Rappahannock River.

Jonathan Gibson -Bishop Gibson and Governor Gooch

161-2. Jonathan Gibson to George Gibson, Apr. 27, 1731. He has refused a post under the tobacco law, as duties and penalties are too heavy, but he hopes that a word from the bishop will prompt the governor to favour him in other ways. Refers to an uncle, Matthew Gibson. Letter is brought by (Rodham) Kenner, curate of the parish, who is returning for priest's orders.

175-6. Francis Peart to George Gibson, Apr. 15, 1732. He is settled in a parish (St. Stephen's, Northumberland County) largely, he thinks, due to Gibson's good offices with the bishop. He introduces John Boyd, who has been practising medicine in Virginia, but, unwilling to charge the exorbitant fees exacted by most practitioners, has decided to enter the ministry. Regrets to hear of death of Lady Cromwell. Jonathan Gibson is well, and so are 'the old gentlewoman' and her family.

177. Jonathan Gibson to (George Gibson?), Caroline County, May 4, 1732. Asks him to secure the bishop's intercession with Governor Gooch to give him the next vacancy as naval officer or clerk of the county court. Encloses letters to uncles Matthew and George.


207-8. William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, June 20, 1734. Apologizes for not having found a post for Jonathan Gibson. Offered him the post of tobacco inspector, but he declined, though he obtained it for a friend. Only naval-officer post available would have required him to move from his plantation. He will give him a clerk's place when one is convenient to his residence.

215-16. Governor William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, Jan. 14, 1734(5). Grateful to the bishop for accepting his excuse for not doing something for Jonathan Gibson.

251-2. Governor William Gooch to Bishop Gibson, Mar. 3, 1736/7. Introduces --- Read, who is going home for priest's orders. Governor has not yet been able to find a post that will suit Jonathan Gibson.

293-4. Jonathan Gibson to Bishop Gibson, May 9, 1741. He has finally obtained a lucrative post, that of clerk to the County of Orange, but he credits it to John Carter, the Secretary, not to Governor Gooch.

William Gibson - Nicholas Catlett

Wm. Gibson's will (Old Rappahannock Wills, #2, p.68), dated May 14, 1676, was probated Feb 7, 1677/8. In this he mentions his wife, Mary, his daughter, Elizabeth, to whom he devised land bought of Nicholas Catlett."

"On March 18, 1722/3, he (Thomas Powell) and his wife, Mary (Essex Co. Deed Book 17, p.159), conveyed to John Jeter one moiety of a tract of land granted to Richard West and Roger Clothworthy and by said Roger conveyed to Nicholas Catlett and by him sold to Wm. Gibson. John kept the property only a few years and his deed of sale, besides reciting the above facts, adds that Wm. Gibson devised the land to his daughter, Elizabeth Gibson, who was the mother of Mary Powell (ibid. D.B. 19, p.190), the wife of Thomas,(Jr).

These are the siblings of Jonathan Gibson, sons of Richard Gibson


Descendants of Johnathan Gibson & Margaret Thronton

This is not my direct line but notes and such that I have saved over the years in search of the ancestors of Thomas Gibson of New Kent/Hanover County, died 1734.  To date I have not been able to connect this family to any other Gibson family although the William Gibson of the Rappahannock appears to have settled in Virginia before Jonathan.  There is also a George Gibson that does not appear to be a descendant of Jonathan.

You will no doubt find mistakes, or you may have additions, etc., please let me know if you can fill in any of the blanks.
