Joe --

Thank you for the information and reply :) !

Since no one had a quick, ready reply to my initial query, and before I got back to doing what I should be doing, I just couldn't help but do some of my own looking, as I find it very fascinating the way these folks were involved with the Lincoln Presidency. What I found -- full Notes, Sources, etc available by private request, if interested:

Gershom married Sybil Slater, daughter of Elijah Slater and Olive French, on 22 Dec 1822. Sybil was born 1807 in Berkshire County, MA. She died 1878 and was buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Sangamon County, IL
They had the following children:
