My husband's 4th GGf William Holifield was in Capt Robert Smith's Co. Here is his tombstone:

I don't have his military records, but he was reported to be in Battle of New Orleans. William's son, William Jr. married Rebecca Gibson daughter of Johnson Gibson. You have a John Gibson listed in the same company, but I don't know if it is Johnson Gibson or not. Johnson would have only been about 16 at the Battle of N.O. The Holifields & Gibsons lived in the same county in KY so perhaps they enlisted together. If you have any further info on either man, I'd love to hear from you.
