Family correspondence, photographs, and military records documenting the lives of family members of Francis M. Gibson. Gibson's military service in the Seventh Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army in Montana in the Battle of the Little Bighorn is particularly well documented.

Cameron to Francis Marion Gibson and Kate Garrett Gibson, 1916-1919; and letters concerning Gibson family history from E. S. Luce, Superintendent of the Custer Battlefield National Cemetery, to Katherine Gibson Fougera, 1941-1955, with four photographs of the park enclosed. Accompanied by later genealogical material compiled by descendants and transcript of notes made by Kate Garrett Gibson in 1924, circa 2013.
