In Response To: Re: the Gibson Indians ()
Wow, Thanks for the info! I didn't know that, so I'll be checking it out to see what else I can find. Until fairly recently, I hadn't really thought that any of my EVANS family (Archibald Evans, b.1793, probable son of James Evans) from Warren Co., NC, was connected with the Morris Evans line, but DNA has totally changed my thoughts on that now. In working with some EVANS descendants from Wake Co. and a group of GIBSON researchers we've stumbled upon the fact that most of us match up to about the late 1700s, and even more interesting another group are SCOTTs who are showing the same matches to all of us. One of the things mentioned in the EVANS Chancery case was that there were SCOTTs who had also descended from Morris & Jane Gibson-Evans, and this may be proof of that. Of course, I realize much more research needs to be done on this, but it is a great start.
