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.
