Submitted by: Julia Ingle

In 1840 Solomon is listed as being born in ca 1796 in NC. He is listed in Ellijay, Gilmer County, GA as being a farmer. Elizabeth was born ca 1797in TN Thomas is listed as being born in NC in 1826.

COAT OF ARMOUR

Gibson ArmsAzure, three stork's wings expanded argent CrestOut of a coronet, a lion's gamb holding an arrow gules, feathered ox. It seems apparent that this old family name was adopted from the name Gilbert. A popular nickname for Gilbert is "Gib" and the surname Gibson literally means, son of Gib. Although it is believed to be of Scottish origin, the surname Gibson appears in many old English records, dating back to 1379. One of the earliest colonists bearing this old family name to come to our shores was John Gibson, one of the earliest Virginia settlers in 1635. It also appears that one of his descendants, another John Gibson of Orange County, NC was a soldier of the American Revolution. Many descendants of this old family have made outstanding contributions in the service of our country including several Gibsons whose names are found in this book. Many persons named Gibson can be found throughout our nation, representing the arts and sciences, as well as the business world. The motto accompanying the coat of arms well befits those who bear the name, Gibson, "Courage, Charity, and Virtue."
