I'm a descendent of Thomas Gibbons, Sr. Today (Sept 9, 2002) my family and I drove to Rogersville to find the historical marker for Thomas Gibbons and the house this is suppose to still be standing. We found both.

I'm wondering if there is someone who can give me a history of the Thomas Gibbons house. Like who has owned it and how it came to be owned by the First Assembly Church.

I will gladly reimburse someone for postage, copying, etc.
Thanks.

Terry

The brother of my gggg-gm built the first stone house in Rogersville in 1789. It is reported to be still standing. I wonder if this is the same house. His name was William Armstrong. I have a copy of his will that mentions a "Brick House", but it was included in some of his property that was to be divided into lots and sold to pay his just debts, the remainder to be divided between his daughters.

Hi Terry,
By any chance do you have any info on Rebecca GIBBONS who married Edward CROSS.
One of their daughters named Martha Patsy CROSS married
William ROGERS May 03, 1805 in Grainger Co,TN.
Then Martha Patsy left husband William ROGERS and moved to Cumberland Co,KY. Which parts are now known as Clinton Co,KY. Martha Patsy (Cross)ROGERS then moved to Russell Co,KY. I have some info on the CROSS line and I know they lived in Hawkins coming out of VA. But I can't figure out why Martha Patsy married in Grainger County and I can't for the life of me find any ROGERS/RODGERS who connect to William. After they were married they also lived in Tazwell,Claiborne Co,TN.
Thank You,
Theresa

I may have contacted you before, but do you know the background of this William Rogers? I seek son of Clayton and Betridge Sadler Rogers.
Thanks

Hi Jay,
Sorry, I don't know anything except his name. :(
And that he married Martha Patsy CROSS May 03, 1805 Grainger Co,TN. Martha and the children went to Cumberland and Russell Counties in KY. I have posted everywhere and I can't find out anything except that in Claiborne Co,TN. abt.
1810 - 1850 there were 3 or 4 William ROGERS/RODGERS running around at the same time.

Thanks for the reply. The Rebecca b. 1765 to whom I had referred, then, is the niece of the Rebecca married Edward Cross.

Just in case you don't have this data, John B. Gibbons b. 22 Nov 1701, in Charles Parish, York County, Virginia d. 1 May1770 in Albermarle Parish, Sussex County, Virginia m. abt 1733 in York County Rebecca Easton who d. 1780 <1786> in Sussex County.

John B. Gibbons s/o Thomas (John) 1666-1706 and Sarah Cairox <Collier) b. 1679.

Thanks for the information on the line. I don't have anything on the Cross descendants but do have some of the line from Rebecca's brother Thomas Gibbons, Sr. if you need that.
