      JOSEPH GIBBONS, an old and highly respected citizen of Belmont county, is a
      son of Homer and Martha Gibbons, the former a native of Loudon county, Va.,
      and the latter of New Jersey. Homer Gibbons came to Ohio in an early day and
      settled in Jefferson county, where his marriage subsequently occurred. Mrs.
      Gibbons moved to Ohio about the year 1800, and also settled in Jefferson
      county, locating near Mt. Pleasant. The following are the names of the
      children born to Homer and Martha Gibbons: John, deceased; Mary, deceased;
      Enoch, deceased; Sarah, deceased; Homer, Joseph, Jesse, Samuel B;, James,
      William and Robert. Joseph Gibbons, whose name introduces this biography,
      was born in Belmont county, Ohio, September 27, 1811, and spent his early

      and in 1836, was united in marriage to Miss Penina, daughter of Samuel and
      Sarah Williams, who came to Ohio from South Carolina, about the beginning
      of the present century. Mr. Gibbons experienced all the vicissitudes and
      hardships incident to pioneer life, and by strict attention to business
      has succeeded in accumulating a handsome competence. He is now retired from
      active life, having reached the good old age of seventy-nine years. Mrs.
      Gibbons was born in the year 1816, and departed this life on the 16th day
      of February, 1888. The following are the names of the children of Mr. and
