Hi Marty its me again. This is all new to me but when I went to your Gencircles site I found my cousins from Whitby.
They are the children of Garth Albert Ibbitson. Garth and my dad Norman were cousins. Both died in 1963. We moved to Toronto but stayed in touch with Aunty June for a while.
I have no idea where anyone is anymore.

As for my side of the family Fred and Margaret had children but as I look at dates I think the children came before the marriage. There was Frederick, Elsie and Norman as far as I know. I never remembered meeting Margaret so she must have passed before I was born or when I was young. My dad was married to Jeanne ? before my mom and had 2 sons Norman Jr
and Alan Peter Ibbitson. Then he married my mom I believe 1949/50 mom always said they put the wrong year on the marriage certificate. Her name was Joyce Edith Harris and to him had 5 more Ibbitsons to add to the list.
James Walter eldest
Lester Albert
Elsa Margaret
Donald Andrew (deceased 1996)
and moi Kathryn Louise

As far as Eureka goes I only know it was near Antigonish area.
Since there where no other Ibbitsons alive to speak of the knowlege of where we came from and whose line was practically lost. It's funny you should mention Yorkshire Ibbitsons. The one thing my mother said when she married my dad and went to Nova Scotia was don't tell them your English. Yet I know there is a large area of yorkshire county full of Ibbitsons from what I hear.

Well this is all I know about my line of Ibbitsons its not much but hope it helps.

bye for now and thank you for this website
sincerely Kathryn
