Query posted September 3, 2004

I am searching for Gibsons and trying to determine their relationship to each other. These Gibsons lived in and around Carroll County. Here is what I have found so far. Any help would be appreciated.
I would also appreciate any information about where they lived before Carroll County.

-John Gibson on Personal Tax Rolls for 1834,
-On Oct 21, 1837, Elizabeth Gibson, a member of Bethel Baptist Church which is an offshoot of Carrollton Baptist Church. 
-Henry Gibson on 1840 Personal Tax Roll
No Gibsons shown on the 1847 Roll......
-W. W. Gibson and F. E. Gibson both on 1855 Tax Roll.
-Mary Elizabeth Gibson (family record shows her born Sept 19, 1836 and died Sept 18, 1889. She married N. W. Pentecost on Dec. 25, 1855.
- Ellen Pentecost is shown in the next census living in the Pentecost household. 

Can anyone help me figure out this family? 

Martha Pentecost
