Now this page will probably end up quite large as I start placing my own personal data online, as Champaign County Ohio was a perverbial breeding ground for those Gideon folks. There were also Gideon families in other Ohio Counties (in fact at the moment causing a great research debate in my own lines over two "Henry Gideon" lines, both claiming to be the Henry, son of Peter Gideon of Loudoun County Va has emerged...). At any rate, here are some assorted GIDEON facts and excerpts from the great State of Ohio.

The following items can be located in Cincinatti Ohio's library and possibly other places as well, since you'll have enough information to find them after consulting this chart. I do not have any of these articles so if one of you DOES obtain them, we would love it if you'd share them with us.

NOTE: I don't know what paper "TS" is and could not find a list of abbreviations to tell me. I am trying to find out and will post that information as soon as I receive an answer. Also, letters in the column/page section indicate the "section" of the newspaper appeared in.
The below listed Gideon marriages may be found in Book B of The Champaign Co. records.
