Z Gibson married Viney Carter 22 Dec 1869 in Rapides Parish, LA.

Believe she is the female listed as Lavinia Gipson widowed & age 30 in household 70/71 of the 1880 Rapides Parish census. Living with sons Virece 13, Sustan 10, Asa 8, John 5, Joe 2 & daughter Frances G b Sep 1879.

Have found her listed as Vina Hite (widow) on the 1910 Calcasieu Parish census as HOH of 385/410. Living with her is son Susta & his daughter, Virga. (He's on the 1900 census with wife Christine & dau Virgie). Next to them in 386/411 is son Asa Gibson & family.

Asa & his brother are buried at Fountain Cemetery in Calcasieu Parish, LA. I believe their mother Lavinia (Vina) to be Lavinia Carter (b 1846(, sister to my 3Ggrandmother, Levisa (Vicey) Carter and a look at the online cemetery listing says she was a Carter.

Can anyone confirm that she was the sister of Levisa (Vicey) who married Robert A Perkins?

Does anyone know who the parents of Z Gibson were & how he is related to Zedekiah Gibson (1800 SC - 1869 Rapides Parish, LA) who married Sara (Hite) Hight (also my 3Ggrandparents)?

I just came across your reply to my post.I was suprised to read that great- grandma Viney had so many children. I remember daddy speaking of his Uncle Asa and Uncle Sustain. But he never mentioned the other children. I am hoping to find out the date of death for Zediciah Gibson.Running into a lot of dead ends. I think you so much for all the information that you provided. It's more than I had hoped for! If you come across any futher information ,please contact me.Thanks again.

Hi!

Haven't done any more work on this couple, but if I find out anything else, will let you know. You can email me privately if you wish.

Have Viney's husband listed as Z Gibson (guess it was probably Zedekiah) and have his death listed as before 15 Jun 1880 as she's listed as a widow on the census of this date for Rapides Parish.

Take care!

Lisa

No, I don't know Helen Wilson Gibson (but would like to).

The Lavinia (Louisa/Viney) Carter who married Z Gibson had a sister whose nickname was Vicey (b abt 1833).

Thanks for replying.

Do you have any pictures or can refer me to book published along the Gibson/Carter Rapides Parrish line? I have written to the Historical Society but never received a reply..
