Looking for Robert Gibbs who left messages on this board in 1998 as gibbsdoc@netsites.net. This address is no longer good and would like to communicate with you about the Gibbs and Connelly/Mashbourn families of Burke Co.

My husband is descendent of the John Gibbs/Elizabeth Connelly and his son James/Rebecca Mashbourne. They moved on to Blount Co, Al and there are several more generations still there.

I am descended from John Gibbs and Rebecca Connelly. James was their son. I had no idea he went to Alabama. John was born 11 March 1755 and died 26 January 1847. Rebecca was born 1 Feb 1756 and died 15 January 1847. Both are buried in Obeth Cemetery, Burke County, NC. If you are interested will share.

Rev. John Gibbs

I can't tell you who his parents are but his father is not Zacharias Gibbs 1704-1773. His children were born 1729-1747. Rev. John was born in 1755. I keep seeing his birth as 1729 and his death as 1847...118 years old. Zacharias did have a son, John, born in 1729, but doubt if it was Rev. John, what do you think? Carol

Did son, William Gibbs, marry an Elibabeth Connelly? From a descendant of Nimrod Elliott, I have them named as the parents of Rebecca M. [Mashburn] Gibbs who became the second wife of Nimrod Elliott and then parents of Elmira [Mira] Jane Elliott who married my great-grandfather, John H. Morris.

I am descended from John Gibbs and Rebecca Connelly through their son Joshua Gibbs. Are you still researching on this line? I'd be very interested in exchanging information. I've just started, so I may not have too much to offer.

I am also a descendant of John Gibbs and Rebeccah Connelly. I have Zacharias Gibbs as his father, but have no confirmation of that information. I have been to John Gibbs gravesite in Obeth Cemetery. There is a marker placed by the DAR which says he was born in 1755 and died in 1847. I have pictures of his and Rebeccah's graves.

I am a descendant of Rev John Gibbs and Rebecca Connelly. They are my 4th GGrandparents. I am through son Archibald. (William also had a son named Archibald and Archibald had one also called Arch A). I have successfully joined the Sons of the American Revolution through John. I would also love to know John's parents with proof. None of the lines have any proof and there is quite a bit of proof that most are wrong. I have a copy of a letter that was written to Washington DC in the 20's that says his middle name is Nicholas. Possible but no other proof. Contact me if you are interested. Have a great day. Terry Gibbs

Hi Terry, I am interested in finding the parents of Rev. John Gibbs. I have searched and searched, but can find nothing. I'm not sure that Nicholas was his middle name either. I can't find any early documents with the initial or the name. Wish I could have been more helpful.
