I am searching for the parents of Albert Gideon also. My wife is a descendant of his daughter Iva Louisa. I Have heard some -- some -- of the speculation about his parentage but have not seen it in printed or written form. I would appreciate copies, if you can send them to the above e-mail address.
If you have not found his name, anna's name and "Ivy's name in the 1880 cenus you might want to check it out. It records birthplaces of parents and indicates his father was born in wisconsin, and his mother in New York.. More fodder for speculation.
Have any of you found his name in the 1900 census?
