  • Notes 
    • "Peter Heinrich Gideon of Bavaria in company with his wife and one year old son, Peter, started for the new world about 1749. The wife died en voyage but Peter Heinrich and his son, Peter, arrived safely at Philadelphia. Peter Heinrich Gideon remarried and had other children. Both father and son fought in the Revolutionary War. Peter Gideon located in Maryland but later removed to Loudoun County, Virginia where he followed farming until his death in 1844 at the age of 96 years. He had seven children, the oldest son being George.

      "George Gideon was born in Maryland in 1788 and married Elizabeth Miller of Virginia in 1812. During the War of 1812 he served in the Virginia Militia. Their three children were with them when they pioneered into Champaign county, Ohio in 1817. The Gideon family came to Clinton in the spring of 1847 when Clinton consisted of only a dozen or so houses. The trip from Ohio to Illinois was made overland in eight large prairie schooners. George Gideon conducted a hotel in Clinton and laid out the Gideon addition to Clinton. He died at the age of 92 years in 1880. His wife died at the age of 72 years in 1864. They raised a family of ten children: George William, Sarah, Catherine, Armstead M., Peter Miller, Ann, John Wesley, Samuel Hitt, Jacob Boucher and Elizabeth." - Clinton 1835-1985, Dewitt County, Illinois 1839-1985; IL (Dewitt) HIS 1985, pp.227-228; Bloomington-Normal Genealogical Society Library, 201 E.
