Mrs. Joseph Gibson

Joseph Augustus Gibson (1812-1875) was a painter who lived in New Ipswich, NH. One of the glass plate negatives was captioned "Mrs. Joseph Gibson". I am making the assumption that her maiden name is Miranda M. Kibling. The Gibson's children formed a musical concert troupe known as the "Gibson Sisters".
