     Kezia Gibson was born on 10 April 1870 in Hartlepool, Durham, England, Her parents were George (born 1841 Berwick, Scotland) and Margaret Gibson (born 1841 Durham.)1,2 She married John Cuthbert Emerson, son of John Emerson and Eliza Ann Emerson, in 1893 in Sunderland, Durham, England.3,1 In the census of 31 March 1901 in 13 Queen Street, Edinburgh, Midloathian, Scotland, she was listed as the wife of John Cuthbert Emerson.4 John Cuthbert spent most of his life in boarding/military schools while his parents John and Kezia travelled around the world living on whatever merchant ship John was Captain of at the time.1 Her husband John died on 15 November 1914 in Gibraltar aged 47 from a fall from his ship while docked in Gibraltar. An inquest stated: At the Old Mole Head yesterday afternoon an inquest was held on the body of John Emerson, the Master of the British steamship Northwaite, now lying in the Bay.

It appears from the evidence given that on Sunday last, at about noon, as the deceased was holding on with his left hand to a stanchion which was near the rail that had been unshipped, giving the details of the voyage to the examining officer, he apparently overbalanced himself and fell overboard, striking the rail of the examination steamer, which was alongside and afterwards falling between the two vessels. He was picked up almost at once, and Dr. Heiron of the S.S. Avon and Dr. Oman the Port Surgeon, arrived very soon after. Although everything possible was done for the unfortunate Master, he expired at 4:30 pm.

The Jury returned a verdict of “Died from internal hemorrhage and shock” due to an accidental fall from the deck of the British steamer Northwaite, on to the deck of H.M.S. Crocodile and then into the sea.

He is buried in Gibraltar.1 Kezia travelled aboard the SS Saxonia sailing from London on 6 December 1919 arriving in New York on 21 December 1919. She is described as a friend of W Pyman from Braithwaite, Penarth, Wales and is bound for East Braintreee, Massachusetts.5,1 In the census of 1 January 1920 in Quincy, Massachusetts, USA, she was listed as the mother of John Cuthbert Emerson.6 Kezia died on 11 October 1958 in San Francisco, California, USA, aged 88.1,7

Chart 28 - Francis Greathead
     Thomas Williams Greathead was born on 27 July 1792 in Clitheroe, Lancashire, England.1,2 He was the son of Francis Greathead and Sarah Thornton.1 He was baptised on 14 April 1793 in St Mary Magdalene, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England.1,2 When sixteen years of age he went to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and in 1815 to London.3 He married Frances Sarah Hux, daughter of Thomas Hux and Elizabeth Hudson, on 10 September 1818 in St Mary, Whitechapel, London, England, after a licence was issued. The ceremony was witnessed by Thomas Hux and Elizabeth Headworth. Thomas was from the Parish of St Mary, Whitechapel and Sarah from St James, Clerkenwell.4,5 Having obtained a good mercantile education, he, in 1819, decided to try his fortunes in America, and sailed from Liverpool for Philadelphia.3 Thomas appeared on 12 May 1819 in the Quarter Sessions for Naturalization.6 This same year he settled at Fort Lyttleton, and engaged in farming until 1831, when he engaged in the mercantile business with Col. Jas. Agnew, in McConnellsburg, in one of the oldest and most successful stands in this part of the state. In 1847 Mr. Agnew retired, and Thomas continued the business alone until 1858, when he associated his son, John W., with him. Thomas and Frances Greathead were consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and their home was the hospitable roof that sheltered the ministers when on the tour of their circuits.7 Thomas was listed as head of household in the census of 1 June 1830 in Dublin, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, USA, The 1830 US Federal census only lists the names of the head of the household. The remainder are listed as numbers within age groups. So the relationship has been assumed, however there must have been another male child aged between 5-10.8 Thomas was listed as head of household in the census of 1 June 1840 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, The 1840 US Federal census only lists the names of the head of the household. The remainder are listed as numbers within age groups. So the relationship has been assumed. Also in the household were two people I cannot identify, both are female, one aged 20-30 the other aged 30-40.9 Thomas was listed as head of household in the census of 1 June 1850 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, Thomas was a merchant.10,11 John assisted his father in his mercantile business, and at the age of sixteen years engaged with Mr. Daniel Snively, of Greencastle, where he remained for two years, and then went to Dubuque, Iowa, where, on the strength of a letter of recommendation from Mr. Snively, he immediately secured a clerkship. His employer's finances being in an embarrassed condition, he concluded to change employers and selected one of two offers which he considered the best; this employer soon failed, and he was selected by the assignee to close up the business, which responsible position he filled with eminent satisfaction. In September 1854, he entered the employ of Messrs. Barney, Scott and Co., a large drygoods house, as bookkeeper and cashier, where he remained until 1857, when he severed his connection with this firm to accept an offer of co-partnership with his father, at the old stand in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania.

J. W. Greathead was a merchant in the Fulton County town of McConnellsburg. With his father, the 29-year-old co-owned a thriving general merchandise store, which had been cleaned out during a Confederate raid in the fall of 1862. Undaunted, the two men had restocked their inventory and resumed operations. During the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign, Confederate troops occupied McConnellsburg on several occasions. On June 29, Rebel cavalry chased off a company of the First New York Lincoln Cavalry and entered town. Fearful that the shop would be raided again, John Greathead asked an officer to post guards at the door to prevent looting. The Rebel assigned three men to the post, ordering them to "see that this man and his property are not molested."
After a while, a thankful Greathead sat down on the doorstep with one of the guards and began talking. The borough of York was among the topics of the friendly conversation.
As they sat on the steps in front of the store, the guard casually asked Greathead if he had "heard the news from Vicksburg." When the merchant replied that he had not, the trooper boasted that the siege had been lifted. He added that Confederate forces had also retaken Chattanooga. A skeptical Greathead politely listened as the guard continued. However, when the cavalryman mentioned that York, Pa. had also been taken, Greathead was compelled to challenge his assertions.
The shopkeeper looked at the braggart and laughingly replied, "You have spoilt it all now. There are no fortifications at York worth naming."
Greathead suggested, "Your officers evidently are cheering you up with stories of victories not won."
They spent some time discussing the fortunes of the war before being interrupted by an arrogant officer who rudely interrogated Greathead about the Yankees who had recently left. Not satisfied with the merchant's answers, he finally bade him "go to a place noted for its heat." When the glowering officer rode off, the trio of guards burst out laughing. They explained that most of their officers were men of education and wealth who were not liked by the rank and file because of their pompous attitude. They resumed their conversation until it was time for the patrol to leave McConnellsburg. Greathead's merchandise was untouched.
Vicksburg, Chattanooga, and York all in one conversation... it may have been one of the few times in the war these three Confederate objectives were mentioned together as being equally important and worthy of a boast.7 Thomas was listed as head of household in the census of 1 June 1860 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, Thomas was a merchant living with his wife and children.12 Fulton House, erected in 1793 is one of the most interesting buildings. In its earliest history the street was on a level with the creek the rooms now regard as basement rooms were on the street level, making it a three-story building. From its earliest history it was a most popular stopping place. Four Presidents of the United States have been entertained here. John Adams and his wife, Abigail, stayed overnight in the front room to the right of the stairs on the second floor. Zachary Taylor having increased in numbers great enough to have made this necessary. This building was replaced by a brick building, the present Lutheran Church. Its bell has an interesting history. When Napoleon marched against Moscow in 1812, the bells from the churches were sunk to prevent the French from getting them, and Moscow itself was burned. Two of the bells, raised later, were shipped to Philadelphia. A brother of Colonel Agnew, a resident of Philadelphia, bought one of these bells for the Lutheran Church. It was brought to McConnellsburg by Thomas Greathead. The bell, still in use, has a Spanish inscription upon it, seeming to indicate Spanish manufacture. The inscription reads Maria Ana De San Joseph ano de 1736, which translated is Mary Anne of Saint Joseph year of 1736.13 His wife Frances died on 12 May 1867 in Pennsylvania, USA, aged 73.3,14 Thomas was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 1 June 1870 in Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, Thomas was living with two of his children and described as a retired merchant.15 Thomas died on 24 December 1874 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, aged 82.16,3 Thomas was buried in 1874 in Fulton Cemetery - McConnellsburg Methodist, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA.3,14
