Carolyn: My word!Finally, I have something for these people. All we ever knew was that this Gideon was from Canada along with a brother Jessie. Might the name of Gideon be a corruption of Antoince and somewhere along the line, it got corrupted down here? Gideon died 1898 in the Town of Stockbridge, Vermont. He ahd moved there from Lincoln. His daughter Mary was my great grandmother. She married George Manning (Magnan Champagne) and then left him and ran off with his younger brother Frank Manning. Gideon's wife was Mary Wright. I assume that the parents, Jesse and Marie, remained in Quebec and died there? Their other children as well? This is wonderful. You are so generous and thoughtful. Thank you.
