ancestors spent some time in GIDEON, Missouri. He helped start
what I was told was called the GIDEON/ANDERSON Box Company that
was there for many years. Many years ago my father contacted
someone there in GIDEON and they sent him some wonderful

where to find information, or if they have any information on
the Town or the GIDEON family that spent a short time there I
would deeply appreciate it. Thank you in advance----Jackie
