  1. My grandmother’s great grandfather, John Allen Gibson, was a “lay preacher”
    at this Redbank Church in the 1880’s. He and his wife Irene (nee Freeman) are buried in the Redbank Cemetery. He was previously a coachpainter in Wellington St, Waterloo and was an alderman on the Waterloo Council for 2 years. He and his first wife Margaret (nee Gibson) had 2 sons, Percy 1836-1878 and James 18 33-1884. He and his second wife,Irene, had no issue. James married Martha Sunners and they had my grandmother Vera Gibson who married Ernest Townsend. They had Alan Townsend,my father.
    I was wondering if any photos were available of John Allen Gibson. I realise photos were a rarity in those days but maybe in the Church’s archives?

    1. Hi Pauline
      Thanks for your comments and family information which we will add to our archive. Unfortunately we do not hold any photos of the family.
