Jonathan Danforth Gibbs (May 24, 1796 - March 2, 1882) was a New Hampshire cobbler, as well as an amateur historian and surveyor active in Jaffrey in the mid-19th century. He was born in Ashburnham, Massachusetts, but settled in Jaffrey in 1821. Achieving some success as a cobbler, he built a two-story home in Jaffrey Center, which still stands as 385 Main Street. His leisure time was dedicated to studying local history and geography. In 1850 he drafted and published a large-scale map of Jaffrey, considered the first separate specific map of that town. Gibbs died in Jaffrey in 1882.
