|Death: ||Jun. 3, 1873|
Cemetery records state Janett was the 2nd wife of William J. Gibson, however, the only William Gibson in this cemetery is William M. Gibson. William was born in 1792 and was married to Polly Davis about 1817. They were shown together with their children on the 1830 Stark NY census. William and Polly had their last child in 1833, and William died in 1839. As Polly outlived William by 25 years, the only way he could have married Janett is if he and Polly divorced between 1833 and his death in 1839. This is unlikely as William and Polly share a joint headstone. Additionally, Janett Swetland is likely the same person shown on the 1850 Stark NY census, daughter of Ely and Sophia "Sweatland". This census shows her as born about 1835, making her only 4 years old when William M. Gibson died.
