 Sarah W. Galbraith (Andrew, James, James, Robert), born Jan. 25, 1791, died May 2, 1853, in Carlisle, Pa.; married in 1810 John Bannister Gibson, born Nov. 8, 1780, in Shearmans Valley, now Perry township, Pa., died May 2, 1853, in the city of Philadelphia, and is buried in Carlisle, Pa. He was of Scotch-Irish descent, son of Col. George Gibson, who fell in the defeat of St. Clair on the 14th of November 1791. He entered Dickinson College, graduated therefrom, and entered the law office of his kinsman Thomas Duncan. He was admitted to the Cumberland county bar at the March term, 1803. In 1810 he was elected to the Pennsylvania Legislature, and in 1812 appointed president judge for the Eleventh Judicial district, composed of the counties of Tioga, Bradford, Susquehanna and Luzerne. Upon the death of Judge Brackenridge, in 1816, Governor Snyder appointed Judge Gibson associate judge of Supreme court, of Pennsylvania. Under the act of Assembly of April 8, 1826, the number of Supreme court judges increased from three to five. The year following Chief Justice Tilghman died, and Judge Gibson succeeded him. In 1838, on the day of the adoption of the then new constitution of the State, he resigned his office but was immediately reappointed by Governor Ritner. In 1851, when the judiciary became elective, his seat became vacant. He, however, was reelected as associate judge and dispensed the high conventions of that office until his death. No greater encomium can be passed upon him than is inscribed upon the marble shaft which marked the place of his repose---from the pen of the late eminent jurist, Jeremiah S. Black. Mr. and Mrs. Gibson had issue (surname Gibson): Margaretta married Col. Charles McClure, and left issue; Sarah married Richard Anderson, U.S. army, and had issue; Annie married Milnor Roberts, civil engineer, and left issue; John Bannister died unmarried; George, U.S.A., married Fannie Hunt.
 On the stone is also the name of his wife, Sarah Work Galbraith, to whom he was married in 1812
