I believe that Gideon was my great grandmother's brother. He was born in 1875 to Thomas Yerby Adkisson and Drusilla Craig Addison. She told Gideon's older sister(Della who was my great grandmother) that she was on the Trail of Tears. Della,her boys and my mom look very Indian. Drusilla and thomas Yerby Adkisson were married in 1867 in Tn. they were from Maury county. Tn. I have all of that info. He had another wife after Drusilla died in 1877 and that one must have died as well since he had a new wife in 1880 census by the name of Ozella. They were listed in that census. Gideon was 5 years old . I have a copy of that census record as well.
