Could this be the same as my James w. Gibson

0 votes
My gedcom file has not been processed so we cannot make a side by side comparison. My James W. Gibson was born 8/13/1826 in Dickson, Tennessee. The 1870 and 1880 censuses has him living in Hamilton, Il. I have a death date as 2/24/1907 in Hamilton, Il.

He was married 5 times. First to Martha Johnson, second to Prudence Irene McGinnis, third to Nancy Ann Hamilton (my line), and fourth to Amelia Walton.

I think that the James W. Gibson, father of James W. Gibson, born 1871 would not be a fit as the 1880 Census shows them both being born in IL.

There is an Ancestral File showing James W. Gibson born 1826 Dickson, TN and died in Hamilton, IL 1907. He had a son, also named James, but the entry shows his middle name to be Henry, born 1855. James W. Gibson married Purdence Irene McGinnis 10 Dec 1850, who died in 1862. I'm guessing that she would be the mother of James born 1855.
