|Weetcapum Gibson, Anna||unk||12-03-1948||Annie, wife of George Gibson (column 5) Annie (or Anna) Weetcapum Gibson was born about 1885 in Washington. According to the WA State Death Records, she was the daughter of A-Che-Walki (father) and At-Tum-Man-Ny (mother). Anna was married to George Gibson. Anna passed away on December 3, 1948 in Klickitat County, WA. The 1940 Census reflects that both Annie and George were Native American [Researcher Note: This is an attempt to identify the death of a local Native American with the barest of newspaper coverage in that tiny note. The name information came from the WA State Digital records and the spellings are often difficult for those transcribing; however, I considered that some information would be better than none and might help a researcher further along in their endeavours.]|
