About Isaac Gibson

A Patriot of the American Revolution for MASSACHUSETTS with the rank of PRIVATE. DAR Ancestor # A044771

He was a very large man; one day while searching for his cattle on Pearl Hill he came across a you bear cub and started to carry it home. The old mother bear followed Mr. Gibson, not wanting to allow her offspring to be carried off with impunity.Overtaking him, she at once proceeded to obtain possession of her young. Not to be outdone, Mr. Gibson, without weapon of any kind, closed with the bear and the two of them went rolling down the hill. The prodigious strength of Mr. Gibson finallyovercame the bear and he, with torn and tattered garments and flesh, recovered the cub and carried it home. Daughters of American Revolution: "was a minute man at the Lexington Alarm. He also gave valuable civil service."
