Notes for SHEPHARD GIBSON:

"Then came forward sister Kitchens and complained to the church against Susanna Stallard for saying she harbored them Melungins." Stony Creek Baptist Church, Fort Blackmore, Scott County, Virginia William McGill (Justice of the Peace, Hamilton County TN) Question: Was th s character that of a white person or negro,or of what race did he have the character of being? Answer: He was a mixed blooded man in some way, that was his character. We generally called them Malungeons when we talked about the Goins and them the Goins that were mixed blooded . Q. Of what race of people was Solomon Bolton? What did he and his family claim as to be his nationality? How was he treated and recognized in the community where he lived? A. I don' t know of my own knowledge what race of people he belonged to. I often heard Bolton say that he was Portugese. I have often heard his wife say the same thing. He was treated and recognized in the community in which he lived as such. (Shepherd Trial, Hamilton County TN.) <lewis _shepherd.htm> June 9, 1874 Lucinda Bolton Davis My father was a Spaniard and his mother a blue eyed German. My mother was an American, was born in America. I don't know what nation she descended from. (Shepherd Trial) Vardy Collins, Shepherd Gibson, Benjamin Collins, Solomon Collins, Paul Bunch and the Goodmans, chiefs and the rest of them settled here about the year 1804, possibly about the year 1795, but all these men above named, who are called Melungeons, obtained land grants and muniments of title to the land they settled on and they were the friendly Indians who came with the whites as they moved west. They came from the Cumberland County and New River, Va., stopping at various points west of the Blue Ridge. Some of them stopped on Stony Creek, Scott County, and Virginia, where Stony Creek runs into Clinch River. --- The old pure blood were finer featured, straight and erect in form, more so than the whites and when mixed with whites made beautiful women and the men very fair looking men. These Indians came to Newmans Ridge and Blackwater. Some of them went into the War of 1812-1914 whose names are here given; James Collins, John Bolin and Mike Bolin and some others not remembered; those were quite full blooded."

Lewis M. Jarvis interview 1903 Hancock County Times . 
Most of the Collins, Gibson, Bunch, Riddle, and possibly Bolen families came from the Flat River area of Orange county, North Carolina to the back woods area of the New river at the borders of North Carolina and Virginia around 1767.

Thomas Gibson family, moved to Wilkes county NC from the Flat River around this time, then to Fort Blackmore, Virginia. A Cherokee mother bears a child, known as Ridge, in the town of Hiwassee, on the Hiwassee River at Savannah Ford, at this time it is North Carolina, later Tennessee. This is the probable birth year of Cherokee Chief Ridge.

The legend of how Vardy and Shepard Gibson came to Hawkins/Hancock Cowas told in Will Allen Dromgoole's "Four Branches of Melungeon Tree"(1890's) (refering to Shepard as "Buck") ;

These two, Vardy Collins and Buck Gibson, were the head and source of the Melungeons in Tennessee. With the cunning of their Cherokee ancesters, they planned and executed a scheme by which they were  set up for themselves in the almost unbroken Territory of North Carolina. Old Buck, as he was called, was disguised by a wash of some dark description, and taken to  Virginia by Vardy where he was sold as a slave.He was a magnificent specimen of physical strength, and brought a fine price, a wagon and mules, a lot of goods, and three hundred dollars in money being paid to old Vardy for his "likely nigger". Once out of Richmond, Vardy turned hi s mules shoes and stuck out for the wilderness of North Carolina, as previously planned. Buck lost little time ridding himself of his negro disguise, swore he was not the man bought of Collins, and followed in the wake of his fellow thief to the Territory. The proceeds of the sale were divided and each chose his habitation; old Vardy choosing Newmans Ridge, where he was soon joined by others of his race, and so the Melungeons became a part of the inhabitants of Tennessee."

Has anyone made any connection between their Denham line and the Melungeon people of Northeast TN.,
Southeastern KY.,Southwest Virginia. I have traced my linage back to David Denham who lived in Hancock
County, TN., on Mulberry Creek between 1811 and 1850 when he died. He was born in Virginia in 1754. He
claimed to be descended from a Portuguese Denham. Billy Denham Chattanooga, TN.

In Reply to: Denhams and Melungeons <939.html> by Billy Denhamof 1100

My grandmother was Mildred Denham Fugate. Mildred's father was David Denham (1754), who wa s married to Frances Lucas from NC. They had 2 sons, Willoby and Rolen and five daughters: Mildred, Caroline, Evaline, Fetney and Nancy. Mildred's daughter, Margarett, married Clint Robinson, my grandfather. Mildred lived in Lafayett Town-ship, Coles County, IL in 1900 and Mildred Fugat (Fugate) is also listed on the census. She was 100 years old!! So, I am a descendant of David Denham. He is my Great-Great-Great-Great Grandmother. My grandmother's name was Caladona (Callie) Robinson. My grandfather was Alexander (Alex) Robinson. I am also an Afro-Ame rican. Many of the Denhams, because of their fair coloring passed into the white race and i t is difficult to trace. I have done a lot of research about the Denhams and even have a Professor at the University of Illinois interested in the Black ancestors in IL. He, too, states that we probably are Melungeons. I also know that some of the Denhams lived on a Kickapoo Indian Reservation in KS. So we are several different colors, tribes, etc. I am very fair, had red (now gray) with freckles, which I have always hated! I do hope this helps. If you wish to have any more information, please do not hesitate to e-mail me or call. 702-243-3595 . I now live in Las Vegas, NV My son is a physician here.

Hi Caryl,I am looking for a connection for Matilda Denham Gibson of Hancock Co., TN. She w as born in 1803
most likely in NC. She died in Madison Co., KY 1889. She married Shepherd "Ol d Buck" Gibson about 1833 in
Hawkins Co., TN (before Hancock Co. was formed). Most researcher s think she may have been a daughter of
David Denham but cannot confirm. Billy Denham think s David may have been married before Francis Lucas.Matilda is living among the ladies you ha ve named in your history on the 1850-60 census of Hancock, TN. The only one old enough to hav e been Matilda's mother is Fetney. Seems there should be a connection there. Matilda is my g- g-grandmother. Any information you might have to help my research will be most appreciated.
Thanks, Loaetta Reddington

Like you, I have no definate proof, all word of mouth and stories passed down thru the family. I have recently
Found out that we are Mulungeons. Which may explain the clain of NA decent Although ther still may be some NA decent.Cherokee, Powathan, Lumdee are all possible. Elizabeth Collins Gibson was my GG grandmother, She ,married Shepard "Old Buck" Gibson and is the Sister of Vardy Collins. All Mulungeons. None of the names you have written match any of the names in my lineage so far. Good luck with your search. Children of  Shepard Gibson and MATILDA DENHAM are:

Posted by Lona GIBSON
02/22/2002:

Dear Harlan,
Denton married Nancy Thomas Neice, daughter of James Thomas and Lucy Proctor of Granville Co . NC.Lucy brought her chldren into Letcher Co. Ky around 1845.They may have come from Ashe Co . NC at that time. James
had already died. Greenberry Thomas in the 1850 census of Letcher Co . Ky. was her brother and my great, great grandfather.This is from a source that I know is tr ue. Her name is Nancy meade and she told me Nancy was her
grandmother and that Nancy had two children before she married OD or Denton Gibson by a Neice, Neace, Nease, Niece man. I hop e it was her husband, but have not found a marriage as yet. It could be somewhere else
besides Letcher Co. Ky. A lot of people do not know that Sarah Belle Neace who married James Thomas the dulcimer was her daughter and Jane Neice that married Peter Madden is also her daughter . Nancy Meade from
Lexington, Ky. told me she was named after her grandmother Nancy Thomas Neice Gibson so i know this information is true. I believe Denton was married two different times.??????? Please, if you have history on my
Nancy and Denton, I would love to have it. I was born and raised in Letcher Co. Ky, raised my family in Cincinnati, Ohio, but have been living in Bradenton, Florida around 25 years. I am a retired registered nurse. I
have been doing m y family history around 19 years. Lona, Thanks for responding to my query about OD Gibson and Nancy. I have no information about Nancy and I thank you for what you gave me. What we have on OD isn’t much. Records indicate that he was the oldest son of Sheppard (Old B uck) Gibson and Matilda. He is the brother of my great grandmother Elizabeth (Betty) Gibson according to census records in Hancock Co. TNN. 1850. O D was also bondsman for Elizabeth on her Marriage Bond to Thomas Purcell but there is no record that the marriage was ever finalized . All of her children carried the Gibson name.
Sheppard was a lot older than Matilda and died in 1942 the year Elizabeth was born. We are still researching for more solid evidence. My cousin will be going to TNN. This spring for more research. You may email me if you like at hgibson@cinci.rr.com for more details. I was born in Montgomery Oh., moved to Garrard Co. Ky. in 1933 when I was 2 years old. We came back in 1943 and stayed except for my four years in the service. I should be in Florida too .

Seeking information on Ozias Denton "OD" Gibson b. abt. 1835 in Va. or Ky. or Tn. to Matilda and Sheppard
Gibson. He is listed in the 1870 and1880 Letcher Co. census with wife Nancy . He was married in Madison Co.Ky and tax records show him paying taxes on property in Letcher Co. while living there. His sister Elizabeth is my ggmother and he was bondsman on her marriage bond in Oct. 1872. in Madison Co. Ky. What relation is he to the Collins folks? He seemed to be surrounded by them in the census. His father Sheppard (Old Buck) Gibson was a close friend or relation of Vardy Collins in Hancock Co. Tn. and there are many wrightings about them. Any information will be helpful.

May 12,1890 and deceased June 12, 1963. She lived here on earth 73 yea rs, andone month. Sister Liss was married to Jim Bates in the year of 1916. Tothis union wa s born six children, four boys and two girls all
living.Sister Liss joined the old Regular Ba ptist Church April 20, 1963 and wasbaptized April 28, 1963 by Elder Joe Burke and Oliver Mead e. Sister Lisshas left a good example before her children and grandchildren
and onebrother an d three sisters and we believe many friends to mourn the loss.So I want to say to Sister Lis s children: I believe if you ever seeSister Liss anymore you will have to be as humble as Mar y was when
shecame down to the feet of Jesus and washed his feet with tears and driedthem wit h her hair. So children I think your mother can sing the songs ofAngels together with the sai nts forever. Written by a brother in hope
ofEternal life. Dingus Bates, her son says the fun eral of Sister Lississet the first Saturday and Sunday in July of1964 at the Linza King Grave yard on Right Beaver. Preachers chosen are Elders Eppy Holbrooks, Joe
Burke, Oliver Meade, and Ervin Breeding and all preaching brothers are invited to come.

Received from Sherry Cross :
Gearheart, KY, Dec 26, 1936 Mr. Jeems ADAMS,

Dear Nephew, I receive your Letter and were proud to Hear from you, and to Know that you were well. Also I received your papers and was Glad to get them, Jeems. I and my wife are some better than we were when you was hear before. Well Jeems you was saying something concerning the corner ?? upon cretil that you could not locate it... If.. was ...could show the spot where it stood and the spot where father lived. Jeems we had a Good mery Christmas everthing went ... of came no Body Hert in my neighbor Hood. Jeems I would Love to have You Wife and family with us as I have not seen none of your family since they have growed in man hood and woman hood....I would Love for you to send me one of those Historys of the Adams Generations as it pleases you to send me a Daily paper I more than appreciate it. You said in your letter that you was coming out to stay a few days with me . I will be looking for you soon so I will close for this time, Hopping you all Good Luck to yours,
Uncle David ADAMS at Gearheart, Ky.
Letter from Jeems ADAMS to Sherry Cross:
March 13, 1979




Here you have a letter from your honorable ancestor Uncle Dave (DavidMaggard ADAMS). I know there was another letter that I had read at onetime, Sherry, from your ancestor (David Magg ard ADAMS) to my dad, but was not able to locate it. Some note of explanation. The place referred to on Critical is just across the mountain from where I live - it runs into Guest River having headed up on the slope of Black Mountain. M y grandfather Shade ROBERTS owned almost the whole creek at one time but as his second wife Letty, the daughter of Spencer ADAMS [the father of your David] and for a token sum he sold Spencer around fifty acres of land at the mouth of the creek,and he built a house on it and lived there awhile. When David says [in his Gearheart letter] that Christmas passed of without anybody getting hurt in the neighborhood, that was noteworthy, well Harlan may be know from coast to coast for feudin and afussin and being a dangerous area, but in all reality Floyd County had it beat and no -body mentioned it. I mean it was rough - I rather suppose it stil is. One of Davids sons Sidney by name was their company deputy sheriff in one of the coal-villages and the story goes he incurred the enmity of a group of miners who were of polish extraction and he ended up buried in a sand bar on the banks of Beaver Creek. Another incident of the same family and are a Davids son George had a 12 year old girl that had aquarrel with another girl at school one day and the next day the girl brought a gun to school and slew her. Sherry, Well, until I hear from you
Regards and best wishes, [signed] Jeems

The Sherriff spoke of in the above letter was Samuel Ray Adams son of David and Matilda.

There are seven children in the home in 1900 census. Milton and France are David Maggard Adams children by his first wife Susan/Sarah Wells. That leaves John, Anna, Nancy, Samuel and Floyd as Matilda's.
