Are you positive that Henry Gibson (or Gipson) that married Elizabeth Bolen in Wayne county, Ky, is a son of Reuben? The fairly large number of Gipsons in Wayne County (originating from North Carolina) descend from Stephen Gipson and Millie Jackson. Among their children was my ancestor (Larkin Gipson), and also a Henry and an Alfred Gipson.
Could your Henry P. Gibson in reality be this Henry Gipson who may have named their son Jackson after his mother's maiden name. The name Alfred also comes down in this family and could be named for Henry's brother.
Just a thought. This is what we had on Stephen's son Henry, and if we are wrong and have him confused with another Henry we would love to know. We have our Henry as a son of Stephen and Millie Jackson and sibling of Larkin, Thomas, Isaac, Stephen, Elizabeth, Polly, Alfred and John Gipson. This is all documented by an interview with his half-brother Robert Gipson who lived to be 118 years age and interviewed by the press in 1880 or so.
We have thought that our Henry was born ca1797-1802 in North Carolina (Randolph or Burke County) and married in Wayne County, KY, on August 2, 1831 to Sealy Maxwell, born ca 1805 in KY. She died (we assumed) before 1851 at which time we find Henry (we assumed the same person) married in Wayne Co, KY on October 21, 1851 to Elizabeth Ann Dolen (or Bolen), who died (we assume) sometime before 1861 when Henry (we assume this is all the same Henry as his age on census basically coincides) married on February 16, 1861 to Margaret Wilson, born 1840 in Kentucky. Henry was a farmer and we last find him on the 1880 census in Pulaski County, KY. His older brother Larkin Gipson had died about 1870 in Pulaski County.
Be interested in what you, or someone else that sees this post, thinks of this. Tom.
