    Notes 
    • Source: LDS Biographical Encyclopedia: Gibbons, Andrew V., is the son of Andrew Smith Gibbons and Rizpah Knight, and was born near Kanesville, Iowa, April 3, 1849. He came to Utah with his parents in 1852. They located in Bountiful, Davis county, for a short time and then moved to Lehi, Utah county, where they resided till they were called to move south to strengthen the settlements in Iron county. Andrew grew to manhood on the frontiers and consequently his opportunities for gaining an education were limited. Dec. 6, 1876, he married Nancy Elizabeth Harris, and on the 26th of that month he was ordained an Elder. In 1883 he moved to Arizona, settling in St. Johns. He went to Old Mexico in 1885, but after a brief sojourn there and in New Mexico, he returned to his home in Arizona. At the organization of the St. Johns Stake, July 23, 1887, he was ordained a High Priest and set apart as a member of the High Council, by Pres. Jesse N. Smith, which position he is filling at present. Bro. Gibbons, being a polygamist, passed through many trying scenes during the "anti-polygamy crusade." In civil life he has been active and energetic to do his share for the common welfare of his fellow-men. He represented Apache county at the first International Irrigation Congress in Los Angeles, Cal., in October, 1893. In 1898 he was elected a member of the board of county supervisors, and became chairman of said board. For a number of years he was a director in and superintendent of the St. Johns C.M.&M.I.
