Gibbons

Journal by soniye

My full name is Erica Danniele Gibbons. I was born April 14, 1980 At San Leandro Hospital in San Leandro, CA. I do not know anyone past my father. He lives (as of last I've seen him)San Diego, CA. His name is either Brian Donald Gibbons or Donald Brian Gibbons. I inherited his Green eyes and (leprechaun-like) ears. I wish I could find family out there. I've met an aunt and uncle (with kids). Last I recall, my uncle lives in San Diego. I do not know their names. I think her name is Margie. They are brother and sister. Please if any info, contact me.

When Lightfoot contacted me about my dad I worked up the courage to ask my mother for information on him. My mom had his number! I've keept in contact with him over many months.

I just had a reunion! Douring the weekend of Aug. 28th to Sept. 2, 2008. My Gibbons family is now coming together. I just hope we follow up with some research one day soon. I saw my Uncle Dean, my dad, Uncle Robert, Great Uncle Robert, Aunt Carol, Aunt Margret, and a bunch of cousins to boot!

Good evening, How old was your mother when you were born? Do you have any pictures of your father? What color hair does he have? Do you know if your father ever lived in New Orleans?

She was 16yrs. I think they (my parents) visited there once. I had an emerald colored glass (shaped like a jeweled droplet) possibly from a costume. I do have a some pictures of him. Two are elementary sheets and one when he was in his twenties. Back then he had brown hair. Recently my mother went to San Diego for a family reunion (her side). She ran into my father and retrieved his telephone number. I should get that. Maybe he has kept in contact with other family members. I don't think I will ever feel complete never meeting them i f they wanted to get to know me.

This is very odd. Does he have a brother named "Dean" and a sister Margarite or something that, I believed died some time ago (although you've cited a Margie)? The "Donald Brian Gibbons" I knew in New Orleans from 1980 to 1983 was about 5'7", very slight build, liked to work with wood and liked crystals - which may account for the glass item. He worked as a carpenter at Tulane University and had worked at a Harry's Ace Hardware. We were together about 3 years, during which an underage woman showed up in New Orleans, with an infant daughter. She only stayed a few weeks, then went back to CA (I think CA).

Pam Rodriguez?

And, I just did a search for him in "yahoo" and US search found "Donald Gibbons - 51" (which sounds about right, with 2 addresses in San Diego and one in New Orleans (but costs $40 to get the exact info online).

I think you should get the number your mother has. And, I remember him to be a very pleasant, caring person. I used to think about him often and have, on occasion, done a google search for his exact name. For whatever reason, I did one last night and found your posting. If you decide to call him, would you please let him know that I'm still around - married, with 2 sons now. Should he want my phone number or want me to call him, please let me know and I'll send the info re email (through your "contact" link near the top -left of your picture.

Wow. I called my mom and retrieved the number again. He would like to say hi. Sure e.mail me and I give you his number. He told me I could give it to you but I don't want to give it through here. It's nice to know I found someone out of this. I'm sorry for any problems we might have brought up back then. But at least you and my dad can have a fresh start, even as friends. His voice lit up when when I spoke of your first name. As told him your comments, he said your first and last names. Apparently he still remembers you, too.

Okay, check your email!

Yep, Pam Rodriguez - maiden name!
