Isaac GIPSON, a pioneer resident of Sugar Creek Township, died Tuesday of a stroke of paralysis. He was eighty-six years old and was born in Clay County, Kentucky, and came to Indiana in 1829, stopping at the site of Jamestown. His brother John built the first log cabin at Jamestown. In 1837 Mr. GIPSON hauled wheat to Chicago in a wagon, ten or twelve days being required for the round trip. Chicago was then but a trading post.
* Note from Janet ISLEY Price, I am posting obituary for others. I am not related to the subject. No other information was given.
I have had several messages telling me that John R Gipson, son of Archibald and Veshti Gipson, was not a brother to Issac Gibson/Gipson-- but then I found this obiturary?Can anyone clear this up for me?
