General Notes: Wife - Eliza Jane DRISKELL
=================================================================================================

See biography in History of Freestone County, Texas Vol. 2.

  1880 Census shows a John Gibbon living in Limestone County. Listed with the children is Sarah
Gibbon who is the daughter of Liza Jane.  John's wife is listed as Julia and there are seven
other children ranging from ages 18 to 1 years of age. [this is not our John] I believe it is
safe to assume that Liza and John were divorced sometimes between 1864 and 1866.  Of Liza's
three children with John the oldest two were born in Texas, the youngest was born in Missouri in
about 1864.  ****1850 census of Dist 72, in Pulaski County, Missouri lists Eliza J. Driskell in
the family of John Driskell and Catherine Saltsman Driskell.  Image #59 of 95 Respository.  John
Driskell was on the tax assessment lists for Tarrent County, Texas, from 1860 through 1863.  The
Saltsman were on the 1870 census records for Pulaski County, MO.
  There were no Sterlings or Gibbons on the census for Pulaski County, MO. for 1860 or 1870.
