In Reply to: James Calvin Gibb Parker, PA by Marsha of 406

We have a Mitchell Gibb who once lived in Turkey City, PA. According to my computer this is about 10 miles from Parker.

Our records indicate that Mitchell had a son named Calvin. Could James Calvin have been born in th 1830's?

It has been somewhat of a tradition in the Gibb family to address people by their middle names. For example, my wife's grandfather was Henry Ralph Gibb of a rural area near Barkeyville, PA. He was known by his middle name. There are a dozen or so other examples

We really need some ancestors for Mitchell. I wonder if that could be his middle name.
