The Esarey Family Reunion website is dedicated to Carrie Antoinette Gibson (1897-1976), born and raised in Branchville.
Granddaughter of John Clark and Barbara Ewing Esarey, daughter of James Gibson and Idora Esarey, wife of Eugene Esarey and later Thad Riddle (grandson of Hiram Marcus Esarey), both born in Perry County. She was connected to everyone and everything family. Thirty-five years gone and she still shines like a lighthouse to those who knew and loved her.
