+5 votes

George Edward Brown was born abt. June 1851 in New York (probably Franklin or St. Lawrence County). The son of John Brown and Rebecca King. He married Evaline Abidine Gibbs July 4, 1873 in Hermon, St. Lawrence, New York. He passed away abt. June 1924. Merge pending with Brown-112404 as it shows same person. 

Evaline is the grand daughter of Samuel Gibbs and Amy Babcock. She is the daughter of Ichabod Gibbs and Mary Jane Race. Ichabod dies and his widow Mary Jane married his Civil War Vet brother John C. Gibbs  (3 children born to John and widow Mary Jane Race while he served in the war and 3 children born to Ichabod and Mary Jane Race)

George E. Brown Is the son of John Brown and Rebecca King. 

Rebecca King is the second wife of Samuel Gibbs so she would be Evaline’s step Grandmother. 

Samuel and Rebecca married late in life as second marriages for both and no children born to this union

We would like to have more sources for George Edward Brown and Evaline Abidine Gibbs 

Note: Evaline passed away in Texas while staying with her daughter as she was a widow by this time. Both Evaline and George passed away in the year 1924

This is the correct family by the time of this 1860 census Rebecca is a widow and I know Samuel did have his step children living at home when he was married to widow Rebecca Brown. Samuel of course was a widower as well

Note: the 1870 census shows everyone living close together. There is Levi King and even Dexter Brown family and the extended Gibbs family. Very interesting and appears small community of farmers who knew each other very well
