1881 -Per the inscription on the gravestone, Carl Gibson is believed to have been a son of S.D. and Sarah (nee Bolton) Gibson, two early pioneers of York Township. Samuel D. Gibson was born in Ohio, a son of Samuel and Orpah Gibson[i], both of whom are also buried at York Center Cemetery. Samuel Gibson was also a brother to Martha Campbell (Mrs. “Charley” Campbell) whose daughter-in-law, Olive (nee Lawrence) Campbell is buried in York Center Cemetery. Samuel D. Gibson married Sarah P. Bolton at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Forest Township, Fond du Lac County on October 4, 1870. Sarah (nee Bolton) Gibson was a daughter of Joseph and Mary Bolton and as such, was also a sister to Samuel Bolton, another York Township pioneer who is also buried at York Center Cemetery. Samuel and Sarah Gibson probably came to York Township in the 1870s as the 1880 plat map shows S.D. Gibson owning 80 acres of land in Section 28. The February 25, 1892 issue of Republican and Press indicates that S.D. Gibson sold his farm to Walter Graves. The Gibsons left York Township in 1897 and moved to Kansas.
