Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sarah Joyce Gibbs Johnson. I am a native of Alabama and a graduate of the University of Alabama. My parents, William Albert Gibbs and Lemma Lee Otwell Gibbs, are now deceased. I have been actively researching my ancestral families for the past seventeen years. My mother was our family genealogist for almost 50 years and she was instrumental in developing my interest in continuing the search for our ancestors.

Paternal Lineage: Bacon, Barry, Barton, Brewer, Brook/Brookes, Calhoun, Clement/Clements, Collier, Cosper, Cullum/Cullen, Earnest, Gibbs, Glass, Hatton, Hyde, Jackson, Kimball, Kincheloe, Kite/Kight, Knapp, Lippincott, Little, McPherson, Nuthall, Phillips, Pottinger, Roberts, Sims/Simms, Small, Smith, Sprigg, Vines, Wade, White, Wickliffe/Wycliffe, and Williams.

Maternal Lineage: Abney/De Albini, Albrecht/Albright, Ashley, Bentley, Berger, Billings, Bird/Byrd, Bobo, Brickhmann, Britt, Bull, Canning, Collier, Collins, Cottrell/Cotrall, Crumpton, Davidson, Dobbs, Ebourne, Elliott, Emory, Farlee/Farley, Garrett, Gaylord, Hawkins, Higginbotham, Hold/Holt, Hollowell, Hungerford, Jordan, Joy, Keller, Kendrick, Kenner, Kilgore/Killgore, Layton, Lewis, Lucas, Mann, Maroney/Meroney, Morgan, Moseley, Myrick, Neydeckh, Otwell, Pollard, Pounds/Pound, Prichard/Pritchard, Puleston, Reid, Rothchild, Scates, Scheible, Smith, Sorrell, Spencer, Spraggins, Thompson, Tippen/Tipping, Treat, Warner, Weems, Willet, Williams, Willoughby, Wise, Wofford, and Wood.

My husband, William Alvin Johnson, passed away on December 27, 2012. Bill was also very interested in genealogy. Most of his ancestors lived in Bucks Co., PA and Gloucester Co., NJ, with his earliest known ancestors arriving from Germany in the early 1700s.

Husband's Lineage: Dunk, French, Gibison,
Graeff, Johnson, Long, McIlvaine, Miller, Rufe, Scholl, Starr, Somers, Sumstone/Zumstein, Walters/Wolterink, and Worman.

I am a member of the DAR, based on the military service of my 4th Great Grandfather, George Earnest of Virginia. My sister was a past Regent of the Palm Beach Chapter of the DAR. I am hoping to work on several supplementals on other ancestors as time allows. Our earliest ancestors came to the Colonies of Maryland and Virginia from England in the 1600s, including David Wickliffe, Zachariah (Zachary) Wade, and Thomas Sprigg of Maryland; and Thomas Ottowell of Jamestown, Virginia. In the 1700s, other ancestors, Michael Hold (1717), Georg Sheible (1717), Johannes Albrecht (1732), and Henrick Gasper (1768), along with their families, arrived from Germany; and Gabriel Baubau (1700) from France.

Thank you to all my Find A Grave friends for leaving tokens on the memorials of my loved ones. I appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much. I am currently offline due to health issues. I hope to be back soon!

Greetings,

I was looking over old WPA records and found a listing for this gentleman. In the WPA records his death date is shown as 1817. I read your information on his memorial and looked at probate records. I found him listed under Orange county in 1817 as deceased. Alamance was part of Orange until 1849. So the date of 1817 is more likely accurate. Also of note one of the administrators for his estate is listed as William Holt.

RE: Just a note
I will keep these names on file in the event that I run across some of your family in the future. Do you know any of the cemeteries where they are buried? Were they Mennonite or Quaker? Jean

Elizabeth Crook
In the 1870 census she was married to Emery Crook and they had two children and four other Sims in the house hold.Would this Elizabeth be Julia Sims mother from the 1860 census with Lewis Sims? The Atlanta Paper saying that E.B.Ward was arrested at his brother in law's "James Buchanan" points me to William A Sims.Do you know this Elizabeth's maiden name too? Thanks Sarah!
