Created in Northampton State, Pennsylvania on 18 December 1834, Edwin Gilbert was a boy of Julia (Troxell) Gilbert (1807-1876) and Bill H. Gilbert (1805-1862), a New Jacket native who operated a routine and collected tolls at Biery's Bridge following moving to Pennsylvania.

In 1850, he lived in Lehigh Township, Northampton Region, Pennsylvania along with his parents and young sister, Helena (born sometime about 1833). There, he served to guide his family on a laborer's wages.

Prior to the decade was out, Edwin Gilbert had wed Ellen Caroline Tombler (1831-1914). A native of Catasauqua in Lehigh District, Pennsylvania, she was a girl of Daniel Tombler (1796-1841) and Catharine (Hartzell) Tombler (1797-1852).

On 31 January 1856, Edwin and Ellen accepted child Rebecca Gilbert (1856-1914) to the world. (Rebecca went on to wed Nathan Bartholomew in 1881.)

Daughter Mark Bill Gilbert (1857-1916) followed on 28 September 1857, and another daughter, Alice C. Gilbert (1859-1932) arrived on 25 September 1859. (David continued to wed Annie Frey in 1880. Alice married Sylvester Minich.)

Leader Gilbert's namesake, child Edwin, was created sometime around 1861, later wed Lillian, and passed on at the Episcopal Clinic in Philadelphia in 1942.

Civil War Military Company

Edwin Gilbert enrolled for military company at age 27 on 21 September 1861 at Catasauqua, Lehigh State and mustered in at Camp Curtin in Harrisburg, Dauphin Region, Pennsylvania on 30 July as a Corporal with Company F, 47th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. Military documents during the time described him as a carpenter who had been 5'6" tall with brown hair, light eyes and a gentle complexion.

While the times of his early campaigns up through the rates from Corporal to 1st Sergeant remain uncertain, what's certain is that Edwin Gilbert re-enlisted for a second three-year term of company on 19 October 1863 while stationed together with his company at Fort Jefferson in the Dried Tortugas, Florida. Following unique himself in combat, he was then advertised from the position of 1st Sergeant to Captain on 1 January 1865.

The 1890 U.S. Experts'Routine noted that he endured sunstroke sooner or later while providing with the 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers, and that it was a significant enough episode he was however labeled as a veteran with a disability almost three years later.
