ROBERT GIBSON (1821-1899)
I added a bit to the biographical sketch of both Robert and Margaret Gibson,if of interest. I also have a fair amount on the McCaslins and Friends.

George Gibson
I resume you mean George Gibson of Shenango Township after about 1850 (originally from Noblestown in Washington County, PA). He is not in my line but he had a number of local kin. His sons include: William Y. Gibson of Shenango Township (near City Welding), Anderson Gibson of Slippery Rock Township (near Princeton) or James Gibson of Hickory Township, Lawrence County or George Vincent ("G.V." or "Vint") Gibson of Slippery Rock Township. I once had some data on them and the Abner Gibson family of Wilmington Township. Sorting out my Gibsons was a task. I did meet "Vint " Gibson who lived well into his 90s in the 1960s - at his farm on Shaffer Road.

In my line there was a George Bailey Gibson (born in 1835) who married a first cousin (_____ Brady). His birth is in the family Bible. He e was a younger brother of Robert Gibson (1821-1899). George Bailey Gibson and wife went to Iowa after the Civil War. Unfortunately, I am told by HIS Iowa kin (over 30 years ago) that my George bailey Gibson ABANDONED his family in Iowa and "went west." They knew nothing about him after that.

RE: Robert & Margaret Gibson of Gibsondale
Yes. Thanks I would like to accept a transfer of the Gibsons. While I am an old "geezer" I do get back to New Castle several times a year and usually visit the cemeteries. My Mom, Dad and younger brother, Phil are buried at Hermon in Slippery Rock Township near the old farm. Thanks again. Stay in touch.

Robert & Margaret Gibson of Gibsondale
Hi. I am a great-great grandson of Robert Gibson (1821-1899) and Margaret Blair Gibson thru their son, J. Scott Gibson(1856-1910). I added a photo of both Robert and Margaret to your findagrave memorials. I assume you are a cousin.

My Mom (Mrs. Eleanor Gibson McCormick (1919-2014) owned the farm at Gibsondale until 2008 when she sold it to Bob Nimmo (current owner). I have the old Gibson Bible. I hope you enjoy the photos. Stay in touch. Robert Gibson 64261339 Merry Christmas.

RE: Sam Mitchel(l) 157475476 & 107190055
I found one more piece of information that PROVES these are different men:
The Samuel Mitchel in Prospect Cemetery 107190055 died 14 Sept 1852.
The Samuel Mitchell in Allegheny Cemetery 157475476 died 05 July 1852.
Thanks for contacting me and checking into this problem.

RE: Sam Mitchel(l) 157475476 & 107190055
I agree with you - they MAY be they same person, but neither of us seem to have enough evidence to say they are or they are not.
My information comes from the cemetery records. The grave lot has the Mitchel family, although I do not know his relationship to any of the others, nor was his age recorded in the cemetery records.
Don't know what to say, but I hesitate to merge the memorials. The only thing in common is the name and year of death. The cemeteries are about 25 miles apart (quite a distance in 1852).

St. Oswald's Roman Catholic Church
Hi Charlene,
So, I've made a bit of a blunder. I was in Liverpool during the spring and photographed the entirety of St. Oswald's churchyard, and when looking to upload them, I apparently didn't see that you had already established the cemetery on findagrave. So, I went ahead and created another one, and uploaded a boatload of photos (311 memorials so far). I have to tidy the photos up as some of them loaded horizontally, but I digress. I have been looking at the memorials you have set up and noted that some I have duplicated (but without the nice editorial you've included), while others have not (yet!) been. I was wondering whether you'd like to collaborate on this? I thought about editing all of my headstones to reflect the original graveyard you set up, but for the duplicates we/I/you would then have to edit the memorials to include either the headstone inscription or your editorial, depending on the memorial. One option is that I transfer all my memorials to you (lucky you!). Another option is that you transfer all of yours to me (lucky me!). I have only had one coffee this morning so my head is still not thinking clearly - any input you can provide would be much appreciated! I have a personal attachment to this graveyard as my ggg grandfather is buried there (could not find his headstone). How did you come to create all the memorials that you have? Are you related to all of them or have you been looking through the register on Ancestry? Very curious to know! Anyway, hopefully we can clean this up - rather, I know it's my blunder so whatever you think is the best option will be my pleasure to facilitate, just let me know! I just don't want to have to recreate the memorials, which seems unnecessary anyway. Cheers, Edie
