    We cannot be certain which Andrew Gibbons this article is referring to, as no date accompanies the photo. When learned, the location of this photo will be updated. Until then, it will reside in the family photos of Andrew Smith Gibbons--as the correct Andrew no doubt is one of his sons or grandsons.
