Notes for E
DMOND GIBBONS:
Information on the line of Edmond Gibbons comes from Nelda and Michael Teakell, Lafayette, Louisiana. Michael is a descendant.

Descendant Michael Teakell of Lafayette, LA says that Edmond is believed to be the 6th child, of 11, I show him as the 5th.

Edmond lived to be 100 years old. He died in 1879 and is buried in the Clay Springs Cemetery in Overton Co. Edmond married Margarett Macy, who was born in Ireland on Nov 19, 1788 and died in 1885. Edmond and Margarett also had eleven children, most of whom were born in Overton Co.

Edmond, Sr. bought his large tract of land after the government acquired thousands of acres of "hunting ground" from the Indians. The purchase price was 25 cents per acre. When Edmond and James married, their father gave large tracts of land and several slaves each. The Gibbons family owned a rather large number of slaves and at one time there was as lave cemetery near the Clay Springs Cem. The slave cabins were still standing in the early part of this century.

Notes for J
OELL GILLENWATER:
From Group sheet of Nancy Myers

1830 TN, HA p. 57

Several sources say Joell's wife was Henrietta

He was Rev War Soldier

BRB Gillenwater Bk. p. 273-276

P. 273 Joell (like written in will) named in his father's will, to share 123 acres of land on Bollings Creek in Amherst VA with his brother, Elijah. Joell and Elijah sold land the lst day of Feb 1784.

Joell served in the Rev. War in Amherst militia, E.

There is a controversy about who Joell was married to, The VA Hist. Mag. Vol. 33 p. 305, says he m. Sally Gibbons, d/o Thomas and Ann. Mr. Neil's manuscript ( Neal, Harbison, Snodgrass, Miller and Rel. Fam. ? by Thomas H. Neal 197? says he m. "Ritta" probably Henrietta . Also said he had 6 sons and some daughters.

March 2, 1784, Robert Coyle (Kyle) was granted ? acres of land next to Joel. (Deed Bk 2 p. 214 Hawkins, TN)

1786 Deed to Joel from Marshall Bacombe. Wit. were Thomas Gillenwater and James Simmons (deed bk 2 pg. 293,297 Hawkins, TN Reg. 1797)

Dec 1 1797 Joel, a sheriff of Hawkins Co., sold land to Christopher Wilflee (Deed bk l page 206)

Rebecca Cross, wife of Edward, Decd. made a deed will in Hawkins Co., naming her children. Among other parcels of lands, she gives a tract of land, 40 acres, that had been purchased from Joel. (deed bk 2 p g 336,337 Reg. Aug 1, 1801)

From the book by Barbara R. Brown, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Thomas, Elijah, Joell and younger children. This will has been the only early Gillenwater will found, and because of this many earlier
researchers have said:

Thomas and Martha are the parents of James, Thomas, Elisha, John , Joshua, Elijah, Joell, Keziah Wright, Elizabeth Simmons, and the wife of Robert Cross.

I contend, because of proven ages on some of these people, there were at least two different families.

Tennessee Cousins page 87

Joel Gillenwater and his family of Hawkins Co.,

The name of Joel Gillenwaters appears first on the records of Hawkins Co. as a member of the Grand Jury in 1810. The name of Gillenwaters appears on the records of South Carolina and it is not improbable that the Hawkins Co. family came to the Watauga Valley from there.

Source Warren Harrison, researcher
Joel and Sallie moved to Rogersville TN, where they had a son William in 1785 (and several others too) who was my GGG-grandfather.
