Gibbs Cemetery

Union County, SC,
It's about 2 hours drive from where I live to Union, SC the town.
The private cemetery has my grandfather's grandmother's grandparents buried there: George Rogers' grandmother was Lucinda Benson Gibbs Rogers, whose grandfather was James Gibbs and grandmother was Anne Barnett Gibbs.

The will of James Gibbs (see below) leaves his plantation to Hiram, his son...but Hiram left for Mississippi with Lucinda and the Rogers around 1850.  Lucinda and the Rogers kept going (after a while) to Louisiana then Texas. So Hiram is buried in Mississippi, but his wife, Sabra Wilbourn Gibbs  made it all the way to Huntsville, TX.

-------------------------------------
Will of Col. James Gibbs

His estate papers were found in Box 1, package 55. Zacharias Gibbs was the executor. His will was signed 8 Aug 1793. Recorded in Will Book A, p.19-20. An estate sale was held Nov 1794 and another in Oct 1795. Sale papers filed 4 Jan 1796.

The will stated his land was to be divided among the 3 youngest boys- Hirom to have the plantation. Daughter Agatha to have 1 shilling sterling. Mr. Jesse Connell and son Zacharias to manage the estate with his wife. Wife to receive 1/3 of estate, after debts paid. He desired to be buried in his own garden. The Negroes were not to be sold but rather kept on the place until the 3 youngest children were raised. Children all to have an equal part of the property, but Agatha. Oldest son Zacharias to have the cool spring land in Spartinburgh. Son John should have his negro Joe after the death of James' wife and Hirom comes of age. Daughter Susanah to have young negro June. Zacharias was to make title to all the land James had sold in Georgia.
