Go to and to look for more info. This is what I have found so far.

Samuel or Samual Gibeson or Gibison I've seen it both ways was born abt. 1810 in New Jersey according to the 1850 Census Hocking Co. Laurel Twp. Here is what is listed:
Samual Gibison age 40 Laboror Born in NJ
Margaret wife 41 OH
Isaac son 11 Oh
William son 8 Oh
Rebecca dau 6 Oh
Joseph son 4 Oh
Margaret dau 2 Oh

I also found Samuel Gibeson marriage to Margaret Hoffhine (Huffines) on 27 Sept. 1835 Pickaway Ohio. There is a Pickaway Co. next to Hocking Co. and the line is only about 10-12 miles west of Hocking Co. I have never heard of Pickaway Ohio. Huffines is a well known name and still is, here in Hocking Co.

Now, here is what I have found on other Census:
1830 Samual Gibison
1 male 15-20 Your GGGrandfather?
1 male 50-60
1 female 40-50
1840 Samual Giberson
1 male 60-70
1 female 50-60
Samual Giberson
1 male 0-5 (Isaac)
1 male 30-40
1 female 20-30

Other Gibison's or Gibeson's or Giberson's
1830 John, Joel (my husband's gggrandfather came to live with Joel between 1842-1850), Benjamin, Benjamin Jr.

1840 Benjamin, William, Joel

1850 Joel I believe Joel lived here until his death in 1870's.

I'll check the census for later years as soon as I can get to the library. I know there is more info out there. I'll keep looking for you.
