There is a strong possibility, although I haven't been able to really document it yet. There is a scribbled note in somewhere in our family tree that my gr-grandmother Addie (another daughter of Phebe & Jesse Buchner) indicated in her old age that her grandmother's maiden name was Abigail Tyler, born in NY/NJ c.1786, married to "unknown" Ribble. Phebe went to Elgin, Ontario, Canada at some point where she married Jesse in the mid-1830s, and their first couple of children were born. They accompanied Jesse's father Charles to McHenry Co. IL in the 1840s. Jesse & Phebe had moved to Wisconsin by about 1857.
There were a number of Ribble families in Elgin Ontario during that period, so I've been tearing my hair out to figure out what the deal was. The Buchner/Boughners had been loyalists who decamped to Canada shortly after the Rev war, so the timeline of when Phebe got there is a mystery to me at this point--it seems unlikely that a young woman would have traveled alone at that time period.
