Married William Castleton Gibson b: 17 Jan 1856 in Mercer Co., MO
Married: 2 Apr 1882 in Leon, Decatur Co., IA

1) Augusta May Gibson b: 7 May 1883 in Leon, Decatur Co., IA

3) Bert McClellan Gibson b: 25 Oct 1888 in Leon, Decatur Co., IA

5) Eva Grace Gibson b: 24 Oct 1894 in Leon, Decatur Co., IA
6) Wilah Mina Gibson b: 8 Jul 1898 in Leon, Decatur Co., IA

Wilah's spouse is listed as "Unknown," but her marriage date is shown as 01 July 1924 in Decatur County, Iowa, so the creator of the tree simply chose not to post her spouse's name. Tree creator has surname Rector. This would be a good person to talk with about Wilah's ancestry on her mother's side:

A final note: There are other people named Matilde Rector and Matilde Gibson, including one similar Matilde in Oklahoma (where Kiowa people would be more likely to be found). I have been wondering whether the newspaper article you are seeking referred to someone other than "your" Matilde but with a similar name. Was your grandmother very sure of the identity of the person in the article? And, is your grandmother now or has she in the past been enrolled as Kiowa? You mentioned this was a recent surprise to you. Again, anything is possible, but I ask because the records we're finding have not yet supported a connection to Kiowa. I've also wondered whether there is an ancestor on Ida's husband's side who was Kiowa.

Hope this helps.
