Hugh Fergus of Mt. Joy PA
Posted by: Barbara Ann Date: October 11, 2000 at 01:16:51
  of 221

There were also families of Gibsons in the
Mt. Joy area. This was the Penn's Marsh Creek settlement area, synonymous with the Manor of Maske, at the Susquehanna River.
Gettysburg is a little north of the once center of this manor.

I ran across this information hoping for a possible connection to my ancestor, Samuel Allison Gibson who married a Mary Stewart. They later settled in Indiana County PA.

Maybe it will help someone...
