I found the following information on posted by Lallie Benkoski at

Onslow County, NC Deed Book P, page 50, dated 2 Sept 1762 -Wm. Gibson to son, Isaac Gibson, in consid. of love, etc. & 10 pounds - 300 acres, being part of the land Wm. Gibson purchased of Richard Russell, where said Isaac Gibson now lives, on southwest side of Whiteoak River, on Gibson Branch. Wit: James Dyson, Wm Higgins.

Isaac - see Abram
To son, Abram one tract or parcel of land that I purchased of my father containing three hundred acres more or less, also one hundred acres adjoining it, patented by myself, also one negro boy named Sam, also one Negro man named Cato, ...
Archelaus - land in Jones County

If this information is correct then Isaac Gibson who died in 1790 at Onslow County, North Carolina is the son of William Gibson and not Jacob Gibson of Prince William County, Virginia as many have shown on the usual genealogy message boards. There is no evidence that Jacob Gibson's son Isaac went to Onslow County, North Carolina.
