Meet our Relatives - Taylor-Lapham Branch

Kate S. LAPHAM Gibbons

Katie S. Lapham, born Feb 8 in Lansing, Ingham, Michigan, 1851, died

Almost nothing is known about Katie. Last ten years, Roy has pieced together scraps of family postcards and such, to post what is known below. It is still possible Kate's info is all wrong. I am sure she had children, yet nobody in the family now, knows who she really was. It appears she married a Fowler, then A. Gibbons. Funny, wonder if my classmate was related? Kathy Fowler. Attempts to connect with anyone in Montana who might of known about them, has met with no replies. Luckily, Roy is a stubborn Icelander to the nth degree!

Starting to think our Katie S Fowler was not Kate Gibbons, then again, maybe I have the right Kate.
Roy is now in contact with many in the Lapham family. Except for one postcard, every indication shows I have the right Kate Gibbons. Thanks to family members, now have a copy of a family tree back to Job Lapham, Pages from Donna Matthews book 'The Westering Laphams' which covers Lizzie's husband George in greater detail, and what became of him. 3 pages of the family tree in 'The Laphams in America', going all the way back. Even photos of Stanton Craig Lapham and his wife, Smith Lapham I, and confirmation that Laphamville, now Rockford was founded by their relative of Rhode Island. All my pages on the Lapham family seem to have correct information. Just a matter of eliminating duplicate text, and any confusion of the three Smiths. Only thing missing is a photo of Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Lapham-Carpenter.

This info has to be moved to right spot
Evan Lapham, Columbia, Oregon, born abt 1903, age 17
Lois Lapham, Columbia, Oregon, born abt 1905, age 15
Marybelle P Lapham, Multnomah, Oregon, born abt 1917, age 3

The Westering Laphams book gave two clues here.
1. Confirms Katie as Kate Gibbons by her uncle
2. She married a Reverend
DarkForces letters state that Katie taught school at Evart, MI. The last census below connects the Gibbons family to Osceola, MI.
That is Evart, Osceola, MI! see the connection. Dared to open a text file from the Internettitled 'Nichols history2.0' from netonecom.net/~wilder/Desktop/.../Nichols%20history2.0%5D

While it is true none of our family fought in the Civil War, that I have uncovered yet, for sure Lizzie's husband was a Hospital Steward in 28th Michigan Infantry, and Lizzie did not blame him for leaving saying "His wife never spoke against him, saying he never recovered from his time in the Civil War." I am just now reading a letter from George to his parents while based in North Carolina. For sure, one in our family was very much affected by the Civil War; Lizzie.

[This confirms Arthur was a Rev, and why they show up in Colorado. Katie is born 1871, married in 1898 age 17 in Evart.]

Arthur's parents are buried in Evart.
Perhaps after 1870 Katie remarried a Fowler?
Yes! Found the grave of Katie and Arthur! Rev Arthur W Gibbons Been looking for Katie for soooo long. No photos of her, no details about her life, yet we now know when she passed away, it was 1954 in Colorado

According to Ryan she was born 1871

New vital info came from a Ledger from the Carol Jarvie Collection. The addresses are about 85 years old. One line shows K. S. Fowler living in Galt. 119 Water St North Galt. (MAP , Street View) It appears that the original house may no longer be there?
Noye: GALT
Cambridge is a city located in Southern Ontario at the confluence of the Grand and Speed rivers in the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It is an amalgamation of the City of Galt, the towns of Preston and Hespeler, and the hamlet of Blair.[2] Galt covers the largest portion of Cambridge, making up the southern half of the city. Preston and Blair are located on the western side of the city, while Hespeler is in the most northeasterly section of Cambridge.

Oddly this record matches Katie's name, and parents. Her age, 27. Where did her last name Fowler happen? Netta Marklund shows up as a witness. She is also in the Lapham family. So this must be her. Might explain why it has been difficult finding anything on her.

Could this be him?
Leslie L. Gibbons was an alumnus, professor, and department head of Industrial Arts at Colorado State University. He was the first recipient of the Distinguished Service Award given by the Colorado State Faculty in 1955 and was named to the Colorado Vocational Education Hall of Fame. Leslie Gibbons was born in 1907 in Michigan. When he was 10 years old his family moved to Lamar, Colorado. Gibbons earned his B.S. and M.S. from Colorado A & M (CAM; now Colorado State University). After graduation he taught vocational agriculture, was a school principal, superintendent, and taught pre-flight training to high school students during World War II. Gibbons joined the faculty of CAM in 1949 as a professor of industrial arts. He was named department head in 1958 and oversaw the transition of the department to Industrial Sciences which included the majors of industrial construction management, vocational agriculture, and manufacturing (today it is the Department of Construction Management). Gibbons retired from Colorado State University in 1970, and in 1980 the geology (and formerly electrical engineering) building was named the L.L. Gibbons Building in honor of Gibbons' service to CSU. Leslie Gibbons died in 1981.
