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!

I have done a little more research on this, and here is my opinion:
After Amelia died in 1920, James married Annie HOLMES (not sure if this is her maiden name or not). They lived at Peel St, Belmore according to the 1930 electoral roll. James is listed as a fitter, and Annie as home duties. James died in late April 1944, according to the funeral notices in the Sydney Morning Herald on 1 May 1944:
GIBSON. The Relatives and friends of Mrs Annie Gibson of Peel Street Belmore
are invited to attend the funeral of her dearly loved Husband James to leave our
Funeral Chapel This Day after short Service commencing at 3. 30 p m for Moorefield Cemtery, Dignified Funerals Lakemba UL2512
GIBSON.The Relatives and Friends of Mr. and Mrs. W. Gibson. Mr. and Mrs. C. Gibson. Mr. and Mrs. A. McGaghey. Mr and Mrs. W. Barlow and Families and Mr.and Mrs. L. Staff are invited to attend the Funeral of their dearly loved father and Grandfather James. For further particulars see family notice Dignified Funerals UL2512.

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
