Nice detective work Paul, but I doubt that George Gibson is the one he seeks:

The passport application lists that George was naturalized as Gerhard Gommesen, and I believe you misread his first name as Johan on the opslag. He also listed immigration year as 1867.

Here is the family in 1845:

Odense, Bjerge, Kerteminde Købstad, Kjerteminde Kiøbstad, , Strandgaden, 118, FT-1845
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Cicel Kjærby 72 Enke(mand) lever af sine midler do [Kjerteminde]
Ras. Michael Gommesen 28 Gift skipper do [Kjerteminde]
Clare Hincke 29 Gift hans kone do [Kjerteminde]
Gerhard Gommesen 2 Ugift deres søn do [Kjerteminde]
Marie Andersen 29 Ugift tjenestepige Odense

George Gibson's wife is listed as Marta or Martha born in Norway in the 1880-1900 Chicago censuses.


These are the only listings for a Danish born John Gibson with wife Anna I find:

1880 Oconto, Wisconsin
John Gibson 32 Denmark
Annie Gibson 23 Denmark
Annie Gibson 7 Wisconsin
Gertrude Gibson 5 Wisconsin
Mary Gibson 2 Wisconsin

1900 Minneapolis, Minnesota
John Gipson, Feb1849 (51) Denmark, married 28 years, immigration 1868
Anna Gipson, Mar 1857 (41) Denmark, 6 children, 5 living, immigration 1867
Anna Gipson, May 1874 (26) Illinois
Sadie Gipson, Aug 1889 (10) Minnesota
Lizzie Anderson, Mar 1881 (19) Wisconsin (married daughter)

(Above listings may or may not be same family)
