Hello Sir,
The best i can come up with on a birthdate for Henry Gibson is between 1765-1770 in S.C.
I know his wife's first name started with a "N." and she was born around 1765-1784.

This is all i know about his father John Gibson:

To all people to whom these presents shall come i John Gibson do send greeting know ye that i the said John Gibson of the county of Christian and State of Kentucky -plantor?- for and in consideration of the love good will and affection which i have and do have towards my son Henry Gibson of the county and state aforesaid have given and granted and by these presents do freely give and grant unto the said Henry Gibson his heirs and Executors -to?- all my right title or claim to a certain tract of land being and lying on the North side of Renfrow Pond taken by -Moses?- Shelby and transfered to me beginning at four small black Oaks running 66 West 54 Poles to a Black Oak and Gum thence North 30 West 16 Poles to a White Oak and Gum thence South 81 West 22 Poles to a Gum thence North 35 West 16 Poles to a Black Oak thence North 68 West 32 Poles to a Spanish Oak thence South 78 West 22 Poles to a Sweet Gum and Maple thence North 57 West 21 Poles to a White Oak and Hickory thence South 89 West 96 Poles to Walnut thence South 66 West 40 Poles to two Black Oaks and White Oak at the edge of the pond Thence North 140 Poles to a stake thence South 83 East 254 Poles to a stake thence South 140 Poles to the beginning for to include this Plantation it being 200 acreas of land more or less to have and to hold the said land to him the said Henry Gibson his heirs Executors Administrators from hence forth as his and their proper land with out any manner of -conectition?- In Testimony where of i have here unto set my hand and caused my seal to be affixed in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Three January 15
