Picture Perfect Saturday #33 ~ James Gibson “Gip” Hardin

I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!

This week I am showcasing my 1st cousin 4 times removed, James Gibson “Gip” Hardin. James was born on March 2, 1823, in Wayne County, Tennessee. This photo was taken about 1862 in Red River County, Texas. Gip was a Circuit Rider Methodist Minister and also the father of John Wesley Hardin. This photo shows him in his “preaching clothes”. Next to his hand on table is his hat. I think he seems pretty relaxed for someone who had to stand still for a long time to get this photo. You can also tell that he is a very good looking gentleman. He died in August 1876, at the age of 53.

I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have written two books “Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time” and “Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip”, both available on Amazon.
