THE FAMILY OF JONATHAN GILBERT & MARY ABIGAIL LACY

Jonathan Gilbert & Mary LacyJonathan Gilbert & Mary Abigail Lacy were married about 1805, probably in New York. They had at least 8 children. I have not found the family in 1810 at this time. Based on birthplaces of their children, the family lived in New York until they moved to Gallia Co., Ohio about 1818. The family is listed on the 1820 census of Gallipolis, Gallia Co., OH. The numbers are not correct for ages of their children, but the census page was typed (probably transcribed from an original handwritten record), and I think errors must have been made in the transcription. They are listed on the 1830 census of Green, Gallia Co., OH. They are listed on the 1840 & 1850 censuses of Harrison, Gallia Co., OH. In 1850 Jonathan is age 72, Mary is 66, and both are listed as born in NY. Jonathan's occupation was listed as Farmer. In 1860, they are living with married son Theodore in Green, Gallia Co., OH, but Mary's name is listed as Abigail. That census also lists Jonathan, Abigail and Theodore as all being born in Massachusetts, which I do not think is correct. Jonathan Gilbert died on November 26, 1861 in Gallia Co., OH. Mary Lacy Gilbert died on June 26, 1866 in Gallia Co., OH. Jonathan & Mary are both buried in the Rose Cemetery (also called Northup Cemetery), Green Twp, Gallia Co., OH.
