My Great Grandfather David Gibb married Elizabeth Nelson in November, 1823 in Aberdeen. Scotland. They lived in Laurencekirk, Kincardineshire, where they had a Brewery and also a Distillery in Glasgow. Elizabeth died with 4 of her young children from a measles epidemic. They had 4 sons who survived, I understand. One of these sons (the youngest) was my grandfather, James Gibb married to Isobel Kidney of Dundee. They lived in Glasgow for a few years where he worked at the Distillery before returning to Dundee. My father, James Nelson Gibb was their eldest
son. They had 4 daughters(2 died as children)eldest
daughter, Elizabeth Nelson Gibb married Jim Edwards and emmigrated to Chicago around 1919. Other daughter, Ella(married David Milne, Dundee) and youngest son, Robert(married Jessie ??, Dundee)
