Gideon Walker Gibson was the son of George Gideon Gibson and Nancy B. Anderson. He was a Civil War soldier. He enlisted with his brother, John Anderson Gibson, at Maple Furnace, Butler County, Pennsylvania on September 24, 1861 (age 17) on the side of the Union. He reinlisted on January 1, 1864. He was a Private in Company B, 103rd Pennsylvania Infantry - also dubbed "The Hardluck Regiment". At the end of the war, only 81 members of the original muster had survived. His brother would not survive the war.
He was taken prisoner and held at the infamous Andersonville Prison. His time in the camp would cause him health problems for the rest of his life.
He married Margaret Ann Beckner in 1873 and they had at least 11 children: (My great-great grandmother) Mary Abigail, Emma, William Howard, Samuel Anderson, Ina Elizabeth, George G., Ada Estelle, Charles Richard, Homer Coulter, Clara Ethel Jane and Harold Alva. There is also mention of another child, their firstborn, which lived only half an hour but no record was made of that son.
