Birth: Sep. 13, 1859
Mercer County
Missouri, USA
Death: Oct. 14, 1933
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Ira Gibson/Gipson was born 13 Sept 1859, in Mercer Co., Missouri. His father was John Gipson. He married Ida Florence Nicholson in 1886 when he was about 24 years old. Ira and Ida lived in Edwards, (Williams township, Benton Co.) Missouri when daughter Addie was born in 1887.

In 1900 Ira is listed as a "farm laborer."

Ira and his wife later moved from Missouri to California about the same time as their daughter Addie and her husband, Fred B. Younker moved out west--in 1932 the Gipsons lived in North Hollywood, California, on Roscoe St. Ira died about 15 Oct, 1933 at the age of 71.

For many years, Ira ran a rock crusher to separate gravel and sand to make concrete. He also drove loads with mule teams. On one occasion the family recalls that he was injured by a scraper.

Sometime after moving to California Ira and his wife joined the Seventh-day Adventist church.

Ira died 14 Oct 1933 in Roscoe, LA County.
