October 5, 1857 - June 21, 1921

This site represents a typical rural medical practice 1881 - 1921. Dr. James T. Gibson began his practice in Porterdale, Newton County at age 24. He made his calls on horseback, often staying overnight until the patient┬┤s fever broke or a baby was born. After marrying Emma Jane Ogletree in 1888, they established a home, a farm and later built a 2-room office on the premises. Though active in county government, banking and Bethany Presbyterian Church, he was most loved for his care of the sick.
