1883 History of
Franklin and Cerro Gordo Counties, Iowa


In the spring of 1870, D. G. GIBSON located at Mason City, and opened a law office.

He was born in Chautauqua Co., N. Y., in May, 1844. His early life was spent in his native county, where he received an academic education and for some time was taught by a private teacher. When about eighteen years of age, having developed a taste for the legal profession, he entered the law office of Henry R. MYGATT, of Oxford, for the purpose of fitting himself for the practice of law. Subsequently he emigrated to Wisconsin, where he was admitted to the bar in 1868.

He followed his profession in Madison until the spring of 1870, when he came to Mason City. In 1872 he removed to Waverly, Iowa, where he still lives. He is now of the firm of GIBSON & DAWSON, the leading law firm of Bremer county.
