This is the same Gideon I've been working with. Just 2 families Jeremiah, Peter and Alexander were from the first wife who died before 1840. He married Barbara daughter of Samuel Shipton in the 1853. From the first wife: Jeremiah migrated to Webster,MO. Peter stayed home in Davidson Co. NC and Alexander Died of disease (CSA)in Culpepper VA in 1862.
There is one really great page in the 1900 census that has Otha, Ed, Lovelace, and Clarenda. --four of the five living Children of Barbara(Living With William Otha).
