Note 1

Magdalena Gibbons married a Rezin Tevis after Hamilton John Gibbons.  There was a George Tevis in Augusta, Iowa..........and coincidentally (or not), there was a George Tevis who lived with Thomas McFall in Shelbyville, Indiana in the Census before Jane Gibbons lived with them.  Thomas McFall was married to a Nancy Miller.........and I suspect Nancy Miller was somehow related to Magdalena (Beckley Gibbons Tevis Corey).  (from Laura Noble Engel)
