Welcome to Gibson ...
Although we found mention of Gibson during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Gibson was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Gibson was located in Pleasants County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Gibson to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Gibson - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Gibson, please Contact Us.

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
That's the case with Gibson: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
