Seeking any information on Polly, born in NJ,married GEORGE RIBBLE abt 1793,son GEORGE B RIBBLE born abt 1794. Husband died shortly after. In 1800 she married Dennis Devitt from Ireland. 7 children were born in Ramsayburg, NJ before they re-located to Ontario, Canada. 2 more children were born in Canada before she fled back to the States taking the youngest with her but leaving as many as five with her husband. That is the last we know of her but believe she may have altered her name to DeWitt. It is possible that the youngest child (Joseph?)became Banghart DeWitt. Did she flee to NJ, PA, OH, Michigan or where? Even IN is possible.
