Jane E Gibson Baxley
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1826
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA

Daughter of Martha "Patsy" Gibson and Thomas Gibson. Patsy was a great-granddaughter of Mary Bennett and Ziba Gibson.

Jane's birth and death dates are approximate and based on census record information. She is enumerated in the 1880 census but not in 1900. A family pedigree was prepared by her grandson, Elisha Rowland Baxley, in 1977. He left the following narrative:

Jane Gibson Baxley was born and reared in the Gibson Mill community, Richmond County, N. C. After her marriage to John Wesley Baxley, she made her home in Robeson County. She resided there until the end of the Civil War and as her husband did not return home, she brought her two small sons, Thomas B. and Allen L., eight and seven years of age, back to her former home where she could better live among her own relatives. There is no available information as to the date of her death but information is that she died of a heart attack while on her way to visit some of her relatives in the Gibson Mill community. She is buried in the Bear Branch cemetery and in an unmarked grave.

May 28, 1977


Note: Son Thomas Baxter Baxley's family plot is at the entrance to the cemetery off Hall Road. Son Allen Lane Baxley and his wife are in the larger Elisha C. Terry family plot closer to the entrance off Bear Branch Road. The latter plot contains several known unmarked graves. Since Allen died in the same timeframe as his mother, it is likely that her unmarked grave is in the Terry plot.

The Baxley and Terry families were closely related via marriage. Thomas was married to Elisha C. Terry's daughter, Cornelia Ann Terry. Allen married Elisha's stepdaughter, Cornelia Ann Covington.

The four attached photos are an overall view of the Elisha C. Terry plot, moving from left to right. The tall white marker of Allen Lane Baxley is in front and to the right of Elisha's larger marker, visible in the first two photos.
