Notes for ALFRED PIERCE GIBBONS:

Effingham Daily News, April 8-1982, page 10 written by Peggy Pulliam

Titled: Tracing land deeds through several counties. "My readers respond" PART 1:

As you read this article, there are some interesting NOT PROVEN facts, that have been told by several generations in these families. The grave of Mary Ann Pierce who married Jacob Gibbons ,Jr., buried at Faunce cemetery, the article reads that the informant states that she, Mary Ann Pierce, was a sister to our fourteenth president, Franklin Pierce, and that Jacob Gibbons was an half brother to Newton Gibbons, this last statement is not true, Newton was Jacob's son. Mary Ann became ill while visiting in the Effingham area, and she died.
