Looking for Information on My Grandmother Queeny Corinthian Gibson and my Grandfather Gibson

I am looking for information on my grandmother and grandfather Pap Gibson. That name is all I ever heard anyone say when referring to him. I know my grandmother's name was Queeny Corinthian Gibson.That's what my Mother told me. I would like to know if my grandmother had a nick name. I never heard anyone call her by her name ever. All I ever heard anyone say when they greeted her was by her sir name, Mrs. Gibson, or by just grandma.

My Father's name was Ernest Edward Dalton Gibson and my mother's name was Carrie Mae Gibson. They were born in the early 1900's around 03 to 05.

They were raised in Gaffney, SC. Probably lived other places also. My Dad had three brothers that I know of, Jim, Avery and Calvin. All of them worked in cotton mills after they were married. They moved around a lot after their marriages to find work. I guess because of the depression.

I was born in Schoolville, VA, in 1937 , about 4 blocks from the Dan River on Wood Avenue. I guess Schoolville was a suburb of Danville, VA.

I don't know much about my grandparents. I have a photo of the family taken outside their home with their children. I would like to know if there are any of their relatives still living or their siblings. It would be interesting to find out. The Gibson's I have found our were of German and Scottish decent.
