My father, Ted Robison Sr, was a neighbor of the Gibbs Family you are referring to when he was a boy. He mentioned them went I was a boy and I have maps showing the property they lived on and census records with their names.The homestead still exist today. He also mentioned the Zachows which are on some of the same old records.
My father was orphaned in Minnesota about 1912. He was sent to live with his Uncle William B Robison who lived near the east side of Deer Lake, not far from Loon Lake, Wa.
