Subject: [TGF] question about passenger list
Date: Tue, 30 Dec 2008 15:58:49 -0600
Question is it possible that it Mary Gibson age 21 on the ship and John Giblin, who was 25, married each other? Family says that
both a Mary Gibson and John Giblin came from Ireland, but I can only trace a John Giblin back to Ireland. I can however find a Mary
Gibson along with other Gibson, possible kin, who are from Scotland on the same ship that John is on.
There is a image of all this on Ancestry --
The Gibsons on the Superior and John Giblin arrived in 1837. There is a John Giblin listed in the New Orleans, Orleans Parish, LA census in
1840 although I am unsure if it the correct person. I do know my John Giblin and Mary Ann Gibson's first child was born in 1844 in New
Orleans, so they both in the United States by then.
The reason I asked is no one in the family have found who's Mary's parents are yet. By the time I get to do some traveling around I will have a
folders full for half of the states of what research I need to conduct in each.
