Evalin 'Evie' Haller Gibboney (1858-1937)
« on: Sunday 17 January 16 16:01 GMT (UK) »
Evalin or 'Evie' Haller Gibbony, b. Jun 12 1858 in Wythe Co, Virginia, d. Feb 26 1937 in Richmond, Virginia, m. Aug 7 1888 to John Edward Major in Wytheville, VA. She was deaf at the age of 2 from scarlet fever. She was said by family to have studied at Gallaudet College. Two children. Buried in Bethel Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Middlebrook, VA. Brian Kaess’ 2nd Gr. Grandparents
Evie Haller Gibboney was married to John Edward Major (d.1913)? and  had two daughters named Gayry Elizabeth Gibboney Major (Elizabeth G. Swartz in some sources) and Emily P. Major or Emily Bright Major, aka ‘Aunt Emily’. ‘Aunt Emily’ is mentioned as being born Aug 6 1894 in Augusta, Virginia, and dying on Nov 13 1946 in Richmond, Virginia.
I initially had Emily as Emily P. Major, but this may be a mistake.
Emily P. Major, or ‘Aunt Emily’, was married to Napoleon Bailey Blackwell. It is believed they had several children.
I am looking for any info on Evalin ‘Evie’ Haller Gibboney and Emily P. Major, her daughter. Any verification of vital dates would be great.
