I have been trying in vain to research Samuel Gibson and Ellen O’Reilly. Having completed the Doherty and Lunney genealogy books, my logical next choice is the Gibsons, a family so important to both Al and me. I have faced roadblocks in every direction in trying to find their ancestors. But I’ll keep trying. If anyone has any knowledge of their parents or their entry to Canada, please E-mail Me.

An especial thanks to Michael Gibson for all of his research on the Gibsons. He generously shared files, pictures and other materials.  More recently, thanks to Ellen Gibson-Fawcett for sharing her information, for going to the cemetery to take pictures of the gravestones and for inspiring me to start working on this again. Thanks to Aunt Irene who shared a wonderful picture of Grandma Kate Gibson.

The name Gibson in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin being an adaptation of the Scottish names Gibb and Gilbert. Gibson is now found mostly Ulster. The native Gaelic O’Gibealain Sept of County Roscommon occasionally adopted Gibson as the anglicized form of their name instead of the more usual Giblin.

Note to family members: This file has been privatized. This means that the personal data of all living individuals has been made private.   I welcome all enquiries, corrections, additions. E-mail Me if you wish to get more information.

  1. Hi Jeri, hope all is well! Loved your latest pics by the Christmas trees. I was just wondering if you would like any info about my siblings and I to add to your genealogy pages? Sorry to say, I haven’t been out and about finding any new info for Hopefully the new year will find me on the move again with a camera in tow. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! 😍
