In memory of my 3xGreat Grandmother ❀.¸¸.•´⁀`♥ ❀.¸¸.•´⁀`♥ 💕💕


There is a variation on census records in her Surname as McGipson, Gibson. Family stories shared that she was very dark complexion, possibly Native American.


Variation in her name: Elizabeth H., or Hettie Elizabeth

OBIT-BOWLING GREEN, KY NEWSPAPER-OCT 1920
"AUNT" HETTIE PRICE, THE OLDEST WHITE WOMAN IN WARREN COUNTY AND AMONG THE OLDEST IN THE STATE, DIED AT THE HOME OF HER SON, MR TOM PRICE AT HADLEY LAST SATURDAY. THE BURIAL WAS AT HALL'S CHAPEL ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE DECEASED WAS SAID TO HAVE BEEN 104 AND IT IS THOUGHT SHE WAS OLDER. SHE WAS THE WIDOW OF THE LATE WILLIAM PRICE WHO DIED ABOUT 1892. MR PRICE WAS A VETERAN OF THE MEXICAN WAR. AUNT HETTIE WAS THE MOTHER OF TEN CHILDREN, FIVE OF WHOM SURVIVE HER. SHE WAS BORN IN TENNESSEE AND CAME HERE WITH HER HUSBAND ABOUT 50 YEARS AGO AND SINCE RESIDED IN THE HADLEY NEIGHBORHOOD. UNTIL SEVERAL YEARS AGO SHE WAS EXCEEDINGLY ACTIVE AND DAILY DID HER HOUSEWORK. SHE WAS A WOMAN WIDELY KNOWN IN HER SECTION OF THE COUNTY AND HER DEATH IS GREATLY DEPLORED BY THE ENTIRE SECTION. SHE HAD NOT BEEN TO BOWLING GREEN FOR PROBABLY 25 YEARS.

(Census records indicate she was born about 1825. Gravestone is in Smith-Waddle Cemetery in Hadley, KY, not at Halls Chapel Cemetery. Her husband's stone is also at Smith-Waddle. It shows he died in 1902, not 1892 as obit states. )
