Born in northern Idaho, raised in Seattle & Nampa, married very, very young. I am the proud mother of two incredibly talented sons. One an animated graphic design artist, the other a Chef - I've over heard both described in their unique talents as *BADASS*. And I could not be any prouder of either. My oldest son just gave me my very first grand child - SAGE - the product of two master cooks, ~wink~. I am a transplanted TEXAN, but a native *SPUD* (born in Lewiston, Idaho; raised in Parma, Idaho; Seattle, Washington; & Nampa, Idaho). My family had closed ranks around me as a child, I knew very little of any relatives that might exist outside my front door. I am so very glad to have met some of my wonderful cousins, that I would have never realized, even down the stretch of TEXAS road ~ with a Gibson name, to a Gibson Cemetery that is FULL of folks I never knew had any consanguinity. Thanks to every one of you...

Hi Debra,

I am interested in joining the Idaho Project. I have deep roots (as deep as they can be for European descendants in the Pacific Northwest) on both sides of the family. I posted a couple of weeks ago on the US History Page but neglected to send a message to you. I would be interested in leading a county level project if Latah County happened to be available. (We were practically neighbors. Although it is nowhere near as exciting travelling from Moscow to Lewiston ever since they "fixed" the grade.
