CROW, GIBSON, LAMBERT, ROBERTS posted by Ray Holt on Friday, May 2, 1997

Nancy ROBERTS, my ggrandmother, married 1) W.L.D. CROW who died in the Civil War, 2) John P. GIBSON in Troy, AL in 1868. GIBSON died after 1870. She married 3) Berry LAMBERT. I think they must have married in TX as there is no record of their marriage in AL. They lived in what was called Grand Ranche, which I understand was near Gordon in Palo Pinto County, TX. Since there is no record of the marriage in Palo Pinto, I wonder if they might have married in Erath County since Grand Ranch was so close to the county line. Can anyone help me? Thanks, Ray Holt
