Henry & William Gibb in Pennsylvania

I am looking for any information pertaining to the branch of the Gibb family tree that ended up in Cumberland County, PA.

My research has led me to a Henry (father) (1777 - 1861) and a son, William H. Gibb (1831 - 1881). William's H's son William (1853 - 1927) was a blacksmith that ended up settling in Dickinson Township (Cumberland County) near Mt. Holly Springs. William's son Charles Cornelius (1883 - 1859) had son named Harold Boyd (1911 - 1974).

As best as I can figure, Henry and William H. can be traced back to Lancaster. However, there is so little information I'm not even sure if they really are my direct line. (Although family lore says that they are.0

I'm looking for any information. To make matters worse, several generations ago, some family members changed their last name to GIBBS.
