General Notes: Husband - Hugh Gibson


In 1797, Alexander, John, Hugh and James Gibson came to Butler County, PA, and made settlements in Parker Township. They lived alone in the woods for two years, engaged in pioneer work. The boys' father, Levi Gibson, also came to Butler County and settled on the Dutchess farm, in what is now in Allegheny Township.

He brought with him from Indiana County, PA, a pack-horse loaded with provisions. There was no blacksmith in the Butler County settlement, and so as a substitute for chains for log rolling, he twisted hickory withes and used them.
