Illinois; BIOGRAPHICAL: "One of the highly respected citizens of Salem, Oregon, in pioneer days was John W. Gilbert. At this late date not much can be learned of the interesting experiences that must have been the lot of this pioneer, in his travels about the western country in the early days. He was born at Staunton, Virginia, on October 22, 1832, and moved with his parents to Grandview, Illinois, where he grew to manhood. He went to Colorado during the gold excitement of the early "fifties" and was at Pikes Peak at the time of the great rush for gold at that place. He mined for two years in Colorado and then went to the Caribou mined of Idaho. From here he found his way to Oregon, where he first located at Corvallis. In 1858 he came to Salem, Oregon, and was soon followed by his brother A. N. Gilbert. The two brothers established a shoe store. This store was known for many years as Gilbert Bros.' Shoe Store. About the year 1882 Mr. John Gilbert sold his shoe business and moved to his farm northeast of Salem, where he continued to reside until his death on May 11, 1892. In 1870 John Gilbert was married to Roxanna McAlpin, daughter of the old pioneer by that name, in the Silverton country. Six sons and a daughter came to bless this union, namely: Murray, who married Rosella Gow. Thomas A., who married Ella Burley. Guy, who married Nina Penland. Monroe, who married Myrtle E. Wilcox. John W., unmarried. Ralph and Wilda were twins. Ralph married Carrie Hawthorne and Wilda married Ernest Savage.
