Some Descendants of
Henry Gibbs, Sr.
of Hyde Co., NC

(Generations 1 & 2)

On this and the linked pages will be posted information on several generations of the family of Henry Gibbs, Sr. and his wife Ann (Spencer?) Gibbs of Hyde Co., NC. Since the Gibbs family is so large and is connected by marriage to many other early Hyde families, it will be beneficial to compile what information is available on these early generations before proceeding to the large extended family. If you would like to contribute information to be posted here, you may wish to contact me. Any and all additions and/or corrections are welcome. Also welcome are wills, estates, deeds, court records, etc., on these early Gibbs. Your assistance is needed and appreciated. Please keep in mind that the below information is not set in stone, but is being posted here to help get everyone started. Thanks.
