This is not a family that I am researching but I thought Iíd take a look and see if I could find anything to help you.. The Nova Scotia Genealogical website is at
The direct link to early Lunenburg/Queens Co Vital Stats is
I found the following entries pertaining to the family you are looking for
John Gibbs married 1821-12-18 Ruth Parks in Petite Riviere, Lunenburg Co
From records of Methodist Church in Liverpool, Queens Co.
The following children of John and Ruth Gibbs were christened in the Dutch Reformed Church in Lunenburg, Lunenburg Co.
Mary Eleanor Gibbs b 1827-11-15; chr 1827-12-11
William Gibbs b 1826-10-04; chr. 1826-12-20
Matthew Park Gibbs b 1823-01-01; chr 1823-07-19 was christened in the Methodist Church in Lunenburg.
I did a search on Family Search and found Matthew P Gibbs living with his family in Hartford Conneticutt on the 1880 US Census
Its possible that this isnít the same person as John and Ruthís son but the facts all match and he has a son named John and a daughter named Ruth. He is working as a boiler-maker and is a widower. He lists his father as being born in Ireland and his mother as born in Nova Scotia
Children residing with him are
Ruth Gibbs age 26
Jennette C. Gibbs age 24
John C. Gibbs, age 19
Edward J Gibbs, age 11
They are all born in the US and state their father was born in Nova Scotia and their mother was born in Ireland.
Hope this adds a little to your tree
