I am researching Tryon GIBSON, who purchased land in Russell County, VA in 1795 and, in 1797, signed a petition for the formation of Tazwell county. Tryon moved to Tennessee by 1808, and was in Giles County, TN in 1816. He moved to Lincoln County, TN ca 1820 and to Pike County, MO by 1828. He was last recorded in Newton County, MO in the 1840s and probably died there. He was b. ca 1770 and married Margaret (RILEY?)abt 1795, probably in Russell County. They had: Isaac, Benjamin, William and Hezekiah. Ring any bells? Tax records suggest that his father may have been John Gibson and that Tryon may have had brothers named James, John Jr., William and Andrew. John Gibson Sr. was in Russell County in 1787.
