Several historical notes Jordan Gibson was noted as the cheif scout of both Daniel Boone and Squire Boone and a Gideon Gibson as well. Squire boone was in law of lt Ensign George William Teater, and Charles Gibson went on with the Teaters and Boones to Missouri he was Jordan Gibsons son. Its noted that clayurn Teater said that his grandfather went into kentucky with Daniel Boone on the 1st trip
1767 - Reaches Kentucky and hunts along the Big Sandy River
if this was the case then most likely Jordan Gibson was in this party.
I got lt Ensign George William Teater being wounded or ill at the same place agian in 1777 chasing the shawneeSummer of the year 1777 he served a tour of two months in the militia under the officers above named -- they did not have a fight with the Indians that Camaign, Capt. Edmundson & his company pursued them as far as Sandy River, and judging from their trail & the freshess of the signs we had nearly overtaken the Indians & was prevented further pursuit after them in consequence of the sickess of George Teter whom we could not leave, & had not sufficient force to divide, for previous to his sicness the detachment had been divided & sent in different directions after the enemy
I have lt Ensign George William Teater being shot by indians with Boone in the cumberland gap 1779 In the year 1779 his father moved from that state to what is now the state of Kentucky.
I was then about sixteen years of age. On our way from Virginia, at Cumberland Mountain, the Indians fired on us and defeated us, killing one man and wounding two men my father being one of them. a year earlier Daniel Boone had Capt samuel Gibson Teater 2nd command at siege of Boonesboro.
