History of the Old Cheraws, Alexander Gregg

.....Of the Gibsons, Gideon and Jordan were brothers. The latter went to the West as a companion of Daniel Boone. Gideon Gibson came with his father from Virginia to Pedee. There is a public record of a grant to him for 550 acres of land as early as April, 1736. He settled at a place called Hickory Grove, five miles from Sandy Bluff, on a large and fertile body of land, long after noted as the most valuable in that region.....
