Birth: May 18, 1830
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 2, 1895
Richmond County
North Carolina, USA

Mary Johnson McDonald is the daughter of Daniel McDonald and Isabel Johnson; however, she was raised as the child of Daniel and his 2nd wife, Mary Polly Oliver, to whom Daniel was married at the time of his union with Isabel. She was 11 years old when her father passed away in January 1842. He was 79.

She is listed as Mary Johnson, along with four of her McDonald half-siblings, in a March 1842 school record of Hitchcock Free School District (No.9) for the County of Richmond.

About 1847, Mary became the wife of William Pickett Gibson. They lived in the Beaver Dam district of Richmond County and were the parents of ten children.

There is a story that in 1865, while Mary was in labor with son Samuel, Sherman's troops came into the front yard and threatened to burn down the house. They didn't fortunately.
