Father of Hiram Gibbs: James Gibbs

Birth: 1740
Orange County
Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 7, 1794
Union County
South Carolina, USA

James married Anne "Ann' Johnson Barnett, on July 8, 1771, in Orange Co VA. She married a William Johnson in 1770, who must have died that first years of their marriage.

They are buried in their old family garden, at the Gibbs Cemetery. Today, this place is known as the "C. T. S. Wilburn home place", Mrs Wilburn was the Gr-Gr Grand daughter of James Gibbs.

James & Ann had 9 known children:
Zachariah, John, Ambrose, James, Hiram, Agatha, Susan, Mary and Anna. Some are buried at the Gibbs Cemetery.

He was the son of John Gibbs Esq. of Middlesex Co VA, and Susanne Phillipe. It has been said, that his father died in 1770 in Charleston SC, his mother died in Spartanburg Co SC about 1786.

James moved from VA to NC and SC, they arrived in Union Co SC, then Old 96th district, before the Revolutionary War, building their first home near the Lower Fairforest Baptist Church. His father had recieved a land grant of 500 acres on Fairforest Creek in 1768. James received a grant of 640 acres on the Fairforest in 1772.

James left a will SPT Book 1, p.34, book 2, p.43 and book C, p.251. He left his son Zachariah as administrator, and names his liviing children in the Will.

James was a Revolutionary War Veteran, having served a total of 481 days in; 1778, 1779, 1780, he is also listed as serving 10 days in 1782. This was in the SC Archives No. 79, 1006/8, Bk 26, DAR Patriot Index, Vol II p.82. I have not determined a Unit Name he served with, however, most of the Union Co Patriots were in Col Thomas Branhon's unit.

Got involved in parents that I just discovered: Richardson Rountree is where I've quit for tonight.!
This post is more for information that I can come back to, rather than having all the dribs and drabs over on Ancestry or Texas Find a Grave.  I also copied lots of photos of ancestors graves which I'll add to this post.
