from Find A Grave contributor Catherine Cramer:

David W. Gibbs, a civic and social leader in Oklahoma City, was appointed as Chairman of a Board of Trustees charged with setting up a statutory City government on July 15, 1890. He was among the principle petitioners for incorporation of the City of Oklahoma City in 1890, and he and the Board of Trustees set elections for City officers on August 9, 1890 under an aldermanic system of government. D.W. Gibbs operated an ice-cream parlor which housed the City’s first piano, and the townspeople often came to hear his daughter play. Gibbs’ wife was president of the Ladies Relief Club that raised money to assist the needy. He was also an architect of note, one of his designs being that of the Wyoming state capitol. He was also interested in art and music. Their Oklahoma City home was at Third street and Harvey avenue. Mayor Gibbs died, Wednesday. October 19, 1917 at Toledo, Ohio at the home of his daughter, Mrs. D. L. Stine. His wife preceeded him in death in 1912.
