with the internet from your library system and read them.
When writing a query briefly give all the information you have on the
person: places and years; ages in those years. spouse's name and ages
Look at all the Gibbs in the 1820 Census in Clark County, KY and
surrounding counties Check out any that have males to age 10 and age 10
In 1860 he was 36, born 1806, in 1900 born Dec 1813.
Look for his marriage record
I did not think FS had the 1820 Census on-line but searching for Gibbs
in Clark County I find just one :
