I am looking for Gideon's parents. I have found him with his brother Jacob in the 1880 census living with his mother Kathern Nisely b. abt 1850 (spelled Niecly in the census). It is possible she is Catherine Stutzman, daughter of Moses Stutzman.
She is listed as married but also the head of the house with no husband present. There is a man living there Peter Funkhouser but he is single.
I cannot find the family in the 1900 census and by 1910 Gideon is married to Alice Katherine Niedhardt b. 1884.
Does anybody know who his father could be or where he was duing the 1880 census?
