James Gibson

Journal by gibbo113

I am looking for the parents of James Gibson who was married in 1890 to Amelia Sarah Gross.I believe they lived in Belmore NSW,Australia.James is my paternal great grandfather.I don't know his birth or death date and whether he paid to come to Australia or came out at Her Majesty's pleasure.I would also like to know anything about his life and profession.

I think the best way for you to find more information is to purchase the marriage certificate for James and Amelia.
I did find Amelia Sarah Gibson died 27 May 1920, and is buried in the Methodist Cemetery, Moorefields, NSW.
Good Luck!

Dear Noggin,Thankyou so much for your help.This information helps to confirm information that I have gathered from other sources.I am pretty sure thatJames Gibson was my paternal great grandfather.There is some mystery concerning his second wife who was said to have been able to speak German.My father often referred to her as his German grandmother.Holmes does not sound very German.Oh well,not a blood relative so not absolutely vital to my search for ancestors.Again many thanks for your help.Cheers,Keith Gibson

Hi Keith,
I am the Granddaughter of Janet Gertrude Gibson 1907-1977.
Her parents were David Dyer Gibson 1869-1942 and Adeline Alice (Ada) Batty (1876-1951).
I have Davids Birth certificate from 1869 and it says his Father was James Gibson, age 39 from Scotland and his mother is Mary Munro, age 35 from Scotland. They married in 1855
I come to a standstill as well at this stage of the tree.
Funny that you should mention the German ancestry as we always wondered why our Nan's middle name was "Gertrude". She was affectionately known as "Gert"
Could it be that maybe when Mary Munro from Scotland died, James Gibson remarried a German speaking lady?
