In Reply to: Re: Gideon Edward Fetterman, Johnstown PA by James Redd of 184

Gideon Edward Fetterman married to Sarah D. Hill. He was born in 1844 and died in 1888 (not real good on longevity) But they had 6 children, Belle, Christina, Horatio Mull, David Porter, James Shelton, Samuel Grant (named after General Grant whom Gideon served under in the civil war.

The story goes that Gideon was one of 5 brothers who came to this country from Germany. 2 brothers stayed in Pennsylvania and 3 went West. But I have no information before him or regarding his brothers.
