George Washington Gideon (1836-1911)

Born in Hawkins County, Tennessee, d. in Christian County, Missouri. Married Martha Jane Logan. They were my ggg-grandparents on my father's mother's side. George Washington Gideon served four years in the Union Army during the Civil War, enlisting in the 24th Missouri Infantry in 1841.

George Washington Gideon was the son of John Gideon and Mary Evans; and the grandson of James Isham Gideon and Martha "Pattie" Mills. James Isham was born in 1748 in Cork, Ireland, and came to Norfolk, Virginia in 1764. As an Irishman, he felt persecuted by the British back home and happily served in the Continental Army under George Washington during the American Revolution.
