+2 votes
I'm researching my family tree and have gotten stuck at my great-great grandfather, Alexander Gibson. I believe he was born in Scotland. His son was John Lawrence Gibson ("Jack") who was married to Ida Alice Gibson (born KING). I believe that John Lawrence Gibson came over to South Africa in the early 1900s. I'd appreciate any leads! Thanks in advance.

Hi--my family history includes the Gibson's & Kings. Alexander Gibson (your great great grandfather) was married to Jane (Moore) & had 10 children--John, Margaret, James, John, Stuart & children deceased at birth.  Alexander & Janet Gibson's son, Stuart (or Stewart)  would be my great Grandfather-. Stewart Gibson married Rebecca Evans (of Scotland) they had 14 children--From these children, is where the Gibson's married into the King family. Not sure what relationship we have --there's a blood line--5th cousins or other--fun to find out-- Please feel free to email me at Jacquie_p2003@yahoo.com  PS I live in Maine.
