Gideon Edward Fetterman married to Sarah D. Hill. He was born in 1844 and died in 1888 (not real good on longevity) But they had 6 children, Belle, Christina, Horatio Mull, David Porter, James Shelton, Samuel Grant (named after General Grant whom Gideon served under in the civil war.
The story goes that Gideon was one of 5 brothers who came to this country from Germany. 2 brothers stayed in Pennsylvania and 3 went West. But I have no information before him or regarding his brothers.
