John W. Gibson

Journal by MarkGibson

John W. Gibson ran the Northwestern Fuel Company in Washburn, WI. His father, John W. Gibson was a minister who built numerous churches in Northern Wisconsin. John died in Washburn, WI in 1940.

Children of the Rev. John W. Gibson and Angela Matilda Donne were John W., Bert, Florence, Mabel (married a Page)Percy and Albert Donne.

They came to the US from England on the CITY OF ROME of the Ingram line. I believe they first settled in Illinois then moved to Wisconsin.

My grandfather, Albert Donne Gibson, MD graduated from Marquette University. He married Clara Eckhardt from Manitowoc, WI. Dr. Gibson and Clara had six sons, Wallace, Donne, Robert, Gordon, Norman Tanner, and Paul Byron (my father).

I am looking for decendants of John W. Gibson of Washburn, WI, Bert Gibson, Mabel Page, Rev. Percy Gibson (Wauseka, MN). Bert may have located to Idaho.

I am a descendent of John Page and Mabel Gibson Page. John and Mabel moved to Michigan, where John died in 1955 and Mabel died in 1957. They were my great grandparents. The Rev. John W. Gibson and Angela Matilda Donne Gibson were my great-great grandparents. My Grandmother, Louise Page Keur, was the grand-daughter of John and Angela Gibson. Louise Keur passed away last week (Nov. 22, 2011) at the age of 98. I have a poetry journal of writings of Angela Matilda Donne with entries beginning in 1867. This just came into my possession last week with the passing of my grandmother.
