For several years now, I've been very interested in finding out more about my ancestors. Who were they? Where did they come from? What did they do? Hopefully, with the help of my Web-Cousins, we can gather enough information to put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

My father was born Newman Woodrow Gaston, July 28, 1920 the son of James Jerome Gaston and Martha Daisy Burke. James Jerome is the son of John Anderson Gaston and Bennetta Castleberry, who is the son of Gibson Gaston and Jane Killion.

I am trying to find more information about Gibson, his ancestors and siblings. I believe that Gibson's ancestors were possibly of French Royal lineage, but haven't been able to gather enough information about his ancestors.

It is believed that we are descendants of Jean Gaston, a French hugenout that fled to Scotland in the early 1600's and then moved his family to Antrim, Ireland. So far, there hasn't been much information about Jean Gaston, his siblings or his ancestors either.

I am also interested in locating more information on my mothers side of the family. She was born Eunice Linda Madden, in Mississippi, June 29, 1929 to Linzie Palestine Madden and Bessie Mae Day.

Linzie is the son of Dennis Jackson Madden and Lula May Woods, who is the son of Jeptha Washington Madden and Caroline J. Franks.

Any information you have and would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated. I can share what I have, if it will help you in your research.
