Rebecca Mashburn Gibbs

I purchased a book  “People and Things from “The Blount County News and Dispatch, 1879-1889” and found the obituary for Rebecca Mashburn Gibbs, married to James Gibbs.

Died-

“Near Gibbs’ Chapel, at the residence of her son, Mr. Harvey Gibbs, on the 17th day of May, 1889, Mrs. Rebecca Gibbs nee Mashburn, a native of Burke County, N.C., aged 85 years, 1 month and 4days.   For the past 60 years she had been a member of the M.E. Church, and died in a full faith of a glorious hereafter.

I am guessing the “native of Burke County, N.C.” would mean that she was born and raised there.

The only clue I have of her parents is what the Gibbs Family had written in one of the family history articles.

I know that you are a keeper of the Mashburn Family and wanted to pass the information on to you.
