General Notes: Husband - John Gibson


John Gibson and William Ferguson from Indiana County, PA, visited Butler County in 1796. While on their way, they saw several Indians in a canoe on the Allegheny River at Brady’s Bend. Ferguson, whose relatives had been murdered by the savages, fired upon the Indians from a place of concealment, wounded one fatally; and continued his way undiscovered and unpursued. In 1797, Alexander, John, Hugh and James Gibson came out and made settlements in Parker Township. They lived alone in the woods for two years, engaged in pioneer work. The boys’ father, Levi Gibson, came to Butler County and settled on the Dutchess farm, in what is now in Allegheny Township.

He was a soldier in the War of 1812.
