NOTES:
April 1996; information from Shelbia Wimberley, her husband is a descendent
of Bill Wimberley and Arminda Falls, dau. of GW "Wash" Falls. She said
years ago {can't remember who or when} her husband had been told that Wash
Falls' mother was Jennie and she never married his father. She married Andy Hughes
and Wash's father "Jim" took him away and raised him. Also that Wash had
half brothers, Doc, Gibb, and Whit Falls and a half sister who married a
Crawford.

Probably Gilbert was remembered as Jim not Gib and the fact that there is
no male child in the 1820 census for Gilbert would make sense, he was with
his mother at that time.
