  • Note:
    Armstead M. and Lavina M. Gideon were married in Champaign County, Ohio on December 23, 1840. Subsequently, they moved to DeWitt County, Illinois where their children, George W., Alice M., and Anna Elizabeth were born. As best as I can determine, Armstead M. and Lavina M. Gideon, came to Minnesota about 1855, first settling at Excelsior, Hennepin County, near the home of his brother, Peter M. Gideon, and family. (Peter M. Gideon was a pioneer Minnesota horticulturist and developer of the Wealthy apple).

    After the Sioux War Armistead Gideon brought is family to Osakis, Minnesota where he took a homestead in 1866. They came by covered wagon and brought a few cows with them. At the time Osakis had one store and one restaurant and the next year a school house was built. Armistead Gideon erected a log cabin from trees on his homestead. He split clap boards from the logs to be used as roofing. These clapboards served admirably for the first winter but during the summer they dried out and warped and that winter the snow always blew into the cabin. But, Anna (Gideon) Richardson says, "We suffered less from the cold than people do now." Armistead Gideon was a plasterer, broom-maker, and blacksmith all of which trades he used to make a living for his family.
