John was born in Worthington, Armstrong County, the son of John Gamble of Scotland and Barbara Frick, who had 5 other known children.

He served in Company D of the 6th PA Heavy Artillery and contracted typhoid fever near Fairfax Station, Virginia.

After the war, he returned to his father's farm in Butler County and married Alice Wise.

He then lived near Tarentum in the mid 1870s and then Sharpsburg in 1880 where he worked as a teamster and in the rolling mills.

Later in life he worked for Pittsburgh Provision and the H.J. Heinz Company.

After his wife's death he married Margaret Thompson.

He was working as a watchman for the Metropolitan store in Pittsburgh when a fire broke out the night of June 14, 1918. Rescued by a policeman, he died the next day at Allegheny General Hospital of shock and burns.
