|Birth: ||Feb. 1, 1830|
|Death: ||Jul. 29, 1867|
Wife of J. W. Gibson, a farmer in Bethel Township, McDonough County, Illinois. She was born Feb 1, 1830, in Champaign Co., Ohio, a daughter of John and Jane (McComsey) Wilson. Her parents and a brother, Eli Wilson, are buried in this cemetery along with cousins, an aunt, neices and nephews.
Census records do not reveal evidence of any living children born to this couple. In 1860 J.W. and Mary Ann Gibson were both 30-years-old; no children are living in their household during this census--the only others in their home were Mary Ann's 75-year-old mother, Jane Wilson, and her 48-year-old sister Malissa Chenney. The 1870 and 1880 census shows her husband still farming in McDonough County with only Malissa Chenney living as a domestic in his home.
Biographical information comes from census records, vital statistics, and marriage records from Ancestry.com, the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, and from Duane Lester's, "Rural Cemeteries of McDonough County, Illinois, Volume II, Bethel-Industry."
