Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sarah Joyce Gibbs Johnson. I am a native of Alabama and a graduate of the University of Alabama. My parents, William Albert Gibbs and Lemma Lee Otwell Gibbs, are now deceased. I have been actively researching my ancestral families for the past fourteen years. My mother was our family genealogist for almost 50 years and she was instrumental in developing my interest in continuing the search for our ancestors.

Paternal Lineage: Bacon, Barry, Barton, Brewer, Brook/Brookes, Calhoun, Clement/Clements, Collier, Cosper, Cullum/Cullen, Earnest, Gibbs, Glass, Hatton, Hyde, Jackson, Kimball, Kincheloe, Kite/Kight, Knapp, Lippincott, Little, McPherson, Nuthall, Phillips, Pottinger, Roberts, Sims/Simms, Small, Smith, Sprigg, Vines, Wade, White, Wickliffe/Wycliffe, and Williams.

Maternal Lineage: Abney/De Albini, Albrecht/Albright, Ashley, Bentley, Berger, Billings, Bird/Byrd, Bobo, Brickhmann, Britt, Bull, Canning, Collier, Collins, Cottrell/Cotrall, Crumpton, Davidson, Dobbs, Ebourne, Elliott, Emory, Farlee/Farley, Garrett, Gaylord, Hawkins, Higginbotham, Hold/Holt, Hollowell, Hungerford, Jordan, Joy, Keller, Kendrick, Kenner, Kilgore/Killgore, Layton, Lewis, Lucas, Mann, Maroney/Meroney, Morgan, Moseley, Myrick, Neydeckh, Otwell, Pollard, Pounds/Pound, Prichard/Pritchard, Puleston, Reid, Rothchild, Scates, Scheible, Smith, Sorrell, Spencer, Spraggins, Thompson, Tippen/Tipping, Treat, Warner, Weems, Willet, Williams, Willoughby, Wise, Wofford, and Wood.

My husband, William Alvin Johnson, passed away on December 27, 2012. Bill was also very interested in genealogy. Most of his ancestors lived in Bucks Co., PA and Gloucester Co., NJ, with his earliest known ancestors arriving from Germany in the early 1700s.

Husband's Lineage: Dunk, French, Gibison,
Graeff, Johnson, Long, McIlvaine, Miller, Rufe, Scholl, Starr, Somers, Sumstone/Zumstein, Walters/Wolterink, and Worman.

I am a member of the DAR, based on the military service of my 4th Great Grandfather, George Earnest of Virginia. My sister was a past Regent of the Palm Beach Chapter of the DAR. I am hoping to work on several supplementals on other ancestors as time allows. Our earliest ancestors came to the Colonies of Maryland and Virginia from England in the 1600s, including David Wickliffe, Zachariah (Zachary) Wade, and Thomas Sprigg of Maryland; and Thomas Ottowell of Jamestown, Virginia. In the 1700s, other ancestors, Michael Hold (1717), Georg Sheible (1717), Johannes Albrecht (1732), and Henrick Gasper (1768), along with their families, arrived from Germany; and Gabriel Baubau (1700) from France.

Thank you to all my Find A Grave friends for leaving tokens on the memorials of my loved ones. I appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much. I am currently offline due to personal reasons. I hope to be back soon!

Richmond Pollard
Would you add Moman Pollard 88573947 (father) and Dora Franks Pollard 88573949 (mother) to Richmond Pollard 71034007 memorial. And if you could do it where the link will automatically add all the brother's and sisters. Julius Pollard is my grand father who is Richmond's brother. I have gone thru and added Moman and Dora to all the siblings except Kizzie Pearce Mann. I cant locate her grave. Thank you so much.
