Nicholas Gibbs was a revolutionary war hero who moved to East Tennessee from North Carolina in the late 1790’s with his wife, the former Mary Efland. The log cabin he built in what is now the Gibbs community has been in the same family for over 200 years. Nicholas and Mary Gibbs are buried in the Gibbs family cemetery on Emory Road.
