  • Notes 
    • James McNeilly Gibson was my grgrandfather's brother and executor of their father,William's, will. I am trying to get someone to see if there is a letter of transfer for the family at Gilchrist Memorial Presbyterian Church.
      There were SEVEN brothers and they all came over from N.Ireland. I have information on them from the 1830's on because they all show up in the census. You once told me that you had a reunion book for the James Gibson family. Are there any other McNeilly's listed there? I have been to LDS but N. Ireland is a hard place to find information. I'm guessing that Isabelle, the mother was either a McNeilly or a Craig. A Craig was also an executor of William's will.
