Alexander Theodore C. Gideon (yeah, I know, the picture says Alexander A. Gideon....go figure) was the son of John Anderson Gideon and Elizabeth Hancock. He was born 25 Sep 1857 in Taney Co, MO, d. 31 May 1907 of a heart attack in Christian Co MO. He married Anna Majors in 1885.

Teaching youngsters was his main interest. He worked his farm and taught nearby schools at Reed's Spring and Ponce de Leon until his death. He was a man of slight build, and nearly six feet tall. Both he and his wife died when their children were very young and they made their home with the Majors family until they married.
