Genealogy & History
|Formed 1813 from Knox County
This county was named in honor of General John Gibson,
secretary of the territory from 1801 to 1816, and repeatedly
acting governor in the absence of Governor Harrison.
The surface of the county is pleasantly undulating.
A considerable portion of the soil is river bottoms on the
Wabash, Patoka and White rivers. The balance was originally
heavily timbered with walnut, beech, hickory, ash, oak, etc.
The soil is generally loam and sand, and very productive in
corn, wheat and oats. Princeton was named the county seat
in 1814, originally named Prince Town after William Prince.
