Jackson

From this time to the day of his death Mr. Gibson was one pf the most active and most highly esteemed citizens of Jackson, filling many offices of public trust, and always with credit to himself and to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. He was sheriff of the county from 1835 to 1838, and in 1837 was also superintendent, having charge of the building of the court-house and clerk's office, the construction of which was commenced this year. In 1838 Mr. Gibson was cashier of the Detroit and St. Joseph Railroad Bank, which was located on the east side of the river. After Jackson had attained sufficient importance to have a city organization Mr. Gibson was three times elected mayor, and is the only person who has been so honored in our twenty years' existence as a city.
