Captain William Blount's Company - War of 1812

In an article which appeared in the Washington (NC) Progress weekly newspaper on August 8, 1901, Lake Landing, Hyde County, NC, the following muster roll was listed, dated December 13, 1813.

BLOUNT, William - CAPTAIN
BRINN, Richard
CARTER, Blount
DANIELS, John
EMERY, Stephen
ENGLISH, Gideon
ENGLISH, Solomon
GIBBS, Heppard (sic)
McGOUND, Isaiah - John B. McGOWAN
MASON, Samuel
MOSS, Jesse
MOSS, William
SAWYER, Asa
SAWYER, Thomas
SELBY, Burridge
SPENCER, Samuel

This company of men left Hyde County, NC, on December 23rd, 1813. They were ordered to Ocracoke and from there to Charleston, SC. It is not known if this unit was ever in an engagement, but their services were recognized by the state of North Carolina. Mrs. Matilda DANIELS and one other person, widow, drew a pension of twelve dollars a month. She died only several years before this article was printed in 1901; the last of the survivors.

I am seeking information on HEPPARD GIBBS, one of the men in this unit.
Thanks,
Susan
