Gibson Family Genealogical Chart

Title

Gibson Family Genealogical Chart

Description

Charles Evans and others sued for their freedom based on their descent from Jane Gibson, "an Indian Woman, the ancestor." They submitted this genealogical chart as evidence in Charles Evans et al. v. Lewis B. Allen, filed in the Superior Court of Chancery for the Lynchburg District. Their attorney had a stroke and failed to appear in court, so the court dismissed the suit in 1821, and the plaintiffs all remained in slavery.
