Gibb Family Genealogy Forum
John Gibb and Janet Forbes were my g.g.g.grandparents.
I will try and make the information I have simple!!
They had a son RICHARD born 1849/50 who married Mary McFadyen on 19th September 1873, a William Gibb and Iabella Horne were witnesses. The address I have for Richard is Auchinleck, Shotts. Richard was a brickwork foreman and his father John was an Underground Foreman which ties in the coalmine link. Richard had a son Joe (Joseph) who went to Edinburgh and build a brickwork at Niddrie where he was manager. Joe had a brother John who died as a result of an accident in the pits. Joe's son was another Richard Gibb, my grandfather. My father is William Gibb and my brothers are Richard and William so you can see the names have carried on. The family have connections to the west coast of scotland but I have not traced further back than this.
