I guess that would depend on where and when she lived. Colin/Collin
Gibson was born ca 1750-1760 (this is per the 1830 census). He was a
soldier in the Revolutionary war who served with the Albany NY Militia.
After the war he went to Washington County NY and lived the rest of his
life in Cambridge. He was married twice, first to Ellen Story, second
to Margaret Miller. He had many children by both wives. His son
Matthew Gibson moved to Oneida County NY and that is where most of his
children and grandchildren lived. He also had a brother David Gibson
who also served in the same Regiment that he did. Some of the
descendants went to Wisconsin but that is about all I know.
I noticed in your email that you mentioned a Colin Gibson. I am
researching the Porter/Gibson family. My Grandmother was Rose Porter -
married W.A. McCarty. Her mother was Mary Lulu (Gibson) Porter,
married to William Thomas Porter. Could there be a connection between
your Gibson family and my G Grandmother Gibson?
