Allen and Anna Lisa lived in Prairie City, Indiana until 1908. They moved to Custor County, Oklahoma and later to Union County, New Mexico. There they took claims of land near Sedan, New Mexico. They remained there until 1925, when Allen's health began to fail so they moved near Tulsa, Oklahoma where they lived with children until time of their death.

In records prepared by a granddaugher, the Gibbens name changed to Gibbons for listing of Allen and Anna Lisa's children.

Notes from Dorothy Stunkard, grandaughter of Allen and Anna Luther:

"My grandfather, Allen Gibbens, was born and raised in; Clay County, Indiana, near Brazil, at which place he resided for 56 years.. He was united in marriage to Anna Lisa Luther. She was the daughter of Anderson and Julia Luther and was born in Ashboro North Carolina on January 11, 1860. During her childhood, she moved to Iowa and later to Indiana in Clay County. In 1908, they left Prairie City, Indiana and moved to Custer County, Oklahoma and later to Union County, New Mexico taking up claims of land near Sedan, New Mexico. They remained there until 1925, at which time my grandfather's health failed and they came to near Tulsa, Oklahoma and made their home with their children the remainder of their lives. The date of his death was January 23, 1927. Her death was 14 years later on January 22, 1941. They are both buried in the Oaklawn Cemetery at Tulsa, Oklahoma. Unto this union was born 13 children, all in Clay County, Indiana."

This family was recorded on the 1880 and 1900 census in Clay Co., IN, and the 1920 census in Union Co., NM. In 1900, Anne stated that nine of her twelve children were living. By 1930, Anne was a widow living with her son Oscar in Fry, OK.
