Names: Barlow, Downs, Gibson, Moore, Shelley
My husband is related to Charles C. Gibson (2nd cousin twice removed). Charles' paternal grandmother was a sister to Ken's 2nd great grandmother. I wish I could offer you more on this family, but not much is available. We have a fairly well completed family group on the grandparent level (Geroge W. Gibson & Mary Shelley) if you are interested.
Be sure to check out the Gibson research responses under "One Name Research" on our website. There are several people searching for this family.
I hope the items I have included will help you in your search.

The Barlow and Gibson families are also tied in another
marriage, which is explained in CBC on p. 468, under "Barlow Family
History". I will give you the first few sentences in
