Gideon Gibson… son-in-law of Wm. Browne d.1718

Considerable hubbub on the web whether he was black or white… he was mixed evidently.  I’m curious if any descendants have done the DNA thing and the “African” marker shows up.  Personally, I’m suspicious he may have been Indian.

I am still tracking William Browne here….    https://andersonnc.wordpress.com/john-browne-of-kingsale-1639-1713-indian-trader/    I’ve updated the Page with a map which supports my, admittedly, “circumstantial” evidence.
