They married probably in late 1820s or early 1830s. They had several children - at least two sons and three daughters. Only Pauline's name is known.

In 1843, Mrs. Gibson gave birth to Pauline, her youngest child. All her other children married; only Pauline became an old maid. After Adoniram's death, Pauline took care of her mother.
