John Gibbs

John GIBBS (1662 – 1718) might have been Alex’s 9th Great Grandfather, one of 1,024 in this generation of the Shaw line.  However, there are too many holes to claim that Mary Gibbs was indeed his daughter; especially since Nathaniel Gibbs, Mary’s supposed brother, married Bathsheba Parmenter, Joseph and Mary’s daughter.

John Gibbs was born 1662 at Sudbury, MA.  His parents were Matthew GIBBS and Mary BRADISH. He married Anna Gleason on 27 Apr 1688.  After Anna died, he married Sarah CUTLER, 31 May 1694 in Reading, Mass.  John  died 2 Apr 1718 at Sudbury, MA.

Anna Gleason was born about 1667 in Sherborn, Mass.  Her parents were Thomas Gleason and Sarah [__?__].  Anne died about 1692 in Sudbury, Mass.

Sarah Cutler was born 15 Mar 1664/65 in Reading, Mass.   Her parents were Nathaniel CUTLER and Mary GOULD.  Sarah died 31 Aug 1725 in Sudbury.

  3. Mark,
    I have reviewed your comments, dates, and concerns regarding your attachment. I also have a severe problem, with a some of your data and assumptions. MERCY was a Twin, born at the same time as JOHN Jr.. I have never seen any record to indicate that Anna (Gleason) Gibbs, John’s wife, might, have actually had triplets. MERCY, is the only child registered as a Birth in the Sudbury V.R.,

    What we really need is access to the actual document, or an original micro-fiche of the original record. We need to know actually where it is listed in the V.R.,

    In the meantime, there is ZERO possibility that Sarah Cutler, had that child “out of Wedlock”
    I’d consider adding a disclaimer, “This information is in dispute, being researched, please do not Copy or use, without vetting the data for yourself.”

    I’ve spent 40+ years researching my lineages, and trying to this out of the public domain,
    Now I spend countless hours, correcting data that was copied from private sources, and made public.

    God’s Peace,
