  • Notes 
    • Birth - All census entires indicate he was born in Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland but I cannot find any record of his birth.
      Possible father could be an Alexander Gibbons, born 15 July 1830 in Dunning (parents John Gibboons and Janet or Catherine McLaren). This Alexander did not marry until 1854.
    • Dundee Courier - Thursday 18 June 1896
      Mathven - Unfermented Wine Question - The members of the U.P. Church were asked during the past two Sundays to record their votes for or against the use of unfermented wine at Communion Services. The votes were counted on Tuesday night, when it was found that 29 were in favour of the proposed change, and 16 against, about 100 members remaining neutral. At a meeting of Session held subsequently, it was agreed in view of the smallnes of the vote to adhere to the use and wont in the meantime. From this decision Mr Alexander Gibbons, a member of Session dissented. [9]

      Good Templarism in Perth.
      The Independant Order of Good Templars held an "at Home" in the Victoria Institute, Dovecoteland, Perth last night. There was a large attendance, and amongst those present were: - Bailie Wright, District Deputy, who presided; Rev. D. C. McKellar, Grand Chief Templar, Denny; Mr Thomas Honeyman, Glasgow, Grand Secretary; Borther Thomas McLaren, District Chief Templar; Brother J. F Robertson, District Councillor; Brother David Morrison, Past District Chief Templar; Brother Alexander Dougal, Auchterarder, District Vice-Templar; Sister Eliza Young, Grand Messenger; Brother Alexander Gibbons, clothier, Methven; Rev. William Muir, Methven, &c. The Chairman said on behalf of their District Committee, he had to welcome all the office-bearers and subordinates of the Lodges in the district. This was the first time, he thought, they had met in that capacity. Good Templarism in Perthsire was never in such a healthy state as it was at present, and this, the Bailie held, was highly gratifying. The Grand Secretary also spoke, and dealt with the demands for temperance work and its rewards. Several songs and recitations were rendered during the evening. [11]
    • Evening Telegraph - Friday 20 April 1900
      An Impudent Thief - Smart Sentence
      At Perth Sheriff Court to-day - Hon. Sheriff-Substitute Kinloch on the bench - Ann Rae or Woods was charged with having stolen eight yards of calico on 19th April from a house in Main Street, Methven occupied by Alexander Gibbons. She pleaded guilty. Mr Melville Jameson, the Precurator-Fiscal, said that the accused was going about begging, and went into this house. Seeing no one about, she had the impertinence to go upstairs and search the drawers of the bedroom, and succeeded in getting this calico. She was afterwards seen by the daughter of the owner looking into drawers in the kitchen. The Sheriff passed sentence of sixty days' imprisonment. [12]
    • Evening Telegraph - Thursday 07 November 1901
      Methven
      Mr Alexander Gibbons, a prominent teetotal advocate in the village, has resigned his office of Chief Templar in the local Lodge. Mr Gibbons has worthily filled the position for many years. [13]
    • Evening Telegraph - Monday 19 December 1904
      Methven.
      Mr Alexander Gibbons, Methven, has added to his collection of Kirk tokens from interesting memorials of the ecclesiastical history of the parish. [14]
    • Dundee Courier - Friday 02 December 1910
      Death of Well-Known Methven Tradesman.
      The death of Mr Alexander Gibbons, clothier, Methven, occurred at his residence yesterday. In the end of last week he contracted a chill, which on Tuesday developed into peritonitis, and from the outset his condition was regarded by his medical attendant as serious.
      Deceased was a native of the Dunning district, and came to the parish of Methven about 30 years ago, setting up in business as a tailor and clothier. He was a devoted supporter of the U.F Church, of which he was an elder, and quite recently he was made the recipient of a purse of sovereigns in recognition of his long service as superintendent of the Sunday School. In public life he took a keen interest, and for a long term was a member of the Parish Council. His hobby was in an antiquarian direction, and he was justly proud of a splendid collection of coins, tokens, &c., which had cost a considerable amount of time and money.
      Deceased, who was 55 years of age, leaves a wife and family to mourn his loss. [15]
