Martha was listed as "Marthlee," 23 years old in the 1881 Canadian census, living with her husband, William Giberson (age 26, farmer) and children: Randolph (age 6), Hanford (age 3), and Stanley (age 1); in Gordon, Victoria, New Brunswick. (3)

Clair Zarges: Martha's granddaughters told me that Martha's husband, William left his family when his daughter Edith was two years old, and that Martha died when her daughter, Edith, was 8 years old. Since Edith was born in 1880, this would put Martha's death sometime around 1888 or 1889.(4)

Our Family History (Giberson family website) gives Martha's death date as 17 Jun 1881, citing as a source the C.A. White scrapbook at the New Brunswick Provincial Archives. (2) Harris-837 19:00, 28 February 2014 (EST)This death date needs to be verified.
