I am also looking for a John Giberson Family. Have the 1850 census family list in Pa. and the 1860 for him in New Jersey.
The children are: Peter 23, George 21, Henry 14, Napoleon 19, mortimere 7, William 5 and an Elizabeth 19 (probably married
to one of the older boys. Ages are for 1960. Part of the family moved to Ohio. William is my ancestor. There was also a daughter
Mary A. in 1850 census in Phil. Pa. age 16. John was married to Margaret in 1850 and she was 32.(May be second wife ???) Any help
is greatly appreciated. John was age 47 in 1860. George and Napoleon were both listed as Mariners. Peter a Machinist. Kathy
