Notes for William Gibson: "William Gibson born: 1772 in Bedford County, Virginia died: 1855 in Chambers County, Alabama 1810 Union County South Carolina Census: There is a William Gibson in the near vicinity of Herrod Gibson, with two males under 10, one male 25-44, one female under 10, one female 1-25, and one female 26-44. 1820 Union County South Carolina Census: William Gibson appears with wife and 8 children. Nearby is John Gibson, with one male 30-40, who may be William's brother John, and one male 70-80, who may be their father John Sr. 1830 Union County South Carolina Census: William Gibson appears with wife and 5 children at home. Nearby are Washington Gibson, John Gibson, and Herod Gibson. In John's household there is a male 80-90, who may be John Sr., father of William and John Jr. Another neighbor is William Knight, whose granddaughter Lucy married William Gibson's grandson John in Alabama. 1840 Union County South Carolina Census: William Gibson appears with one male 60-70 and two females 20-30. If this is our William, his wife Frances had died before 1840 and the younger females are two of his daughters. I believe this is the correct William, as nearby we find Herod (his brother) and Ezekiel (his son). 1850 Chambers County Alabama Census (19th Dist.): Listed in the household of his daughter Chaney Gibson Liles as "William Gepsin Sr.", 78, b Virginia. William Jr. is also in this household. Some information on this family is taken from the Gibson and Knight Family Bibles, at one time belonging to Mary Elizabeth Gibson Blackmon, great-granddaughter of Ezekiel Gibson.
