The obit below might be useful. I have not related to this line. A cousin of set of cousins, Clarice Hazel Murtishaw Gibson died 1929 in Howard Co., Texas; since Clarice's parents lived in Carter Co., Oklahoma which is near Marlow, Oklahoma, there might be some kind of connection between Clarice's husband Gibson (don't know given name) and your Gibson group.

The site has several Gibson death certificates for Howard Co., Texas, some, besides William Newton Gibson, might be yours.
