Look Who I found Today!

Pearl Gibson

1890 -

1st Great, Grand Aunt of my husband

I found Pearl while looking for Dennis Dottin. Dennis is our cousin on my husband's family' paternal side. Dennis Dottin is the relative of Mrs. Annie Sullivan (Webb) Who married Arthur Webb (1st great grand uncle of my husband. While looking for him, I of course went back to the original connection Arthur Webb and sadly upon finding out that all 3 of his children had passed very early. As the informant on the death certificates it was discovered that their mother was a Mrs. Pearly Gibson Webb married to Arthur Webb on 19 Jan 1908 in Crawford County, Georgia.
Good nite Family!!!

His mother was by some accounts deceased when he was a young child. (Although, I have theories on that I will share later)Therefore, as you can imagine the relationship had its challenges.

Back on track..

During my routine search of death records I found him in Ful…
