Re: Christopher Peavler; Peebler, Pebler, Bibler and variations

Is there a missing generation? Unless someone can provide proof that Lewis, Francis, Jacob and Christopher were all sons of Johann Franciscus Bibler, I am inclined to believe there is a problem with the lineage based on the following two documents.

******No, No, No, No Ö YOU provide the proof.

Lewis Peebler in VA - The first record located (to date): Frederick Co. Va: Warrant and Survey 509 acres on drains of Hawksbill; adj. John Lienberger, Peter Fleck/Flick. Warrant has Jacoc Lommick adj. Chain Carriers - Alex Hay & Fleck. Surveyor - Peter Stephens. 20 Dec 1766 - 18 June 1768. Source: Peggy Shomo Joyner, Abstracts of Virginiaís Northern Neck Warrants & Surveys Frederick County 1747-1780 Volume II:120.

******The above proves that Lewis was granted land. By the way this is copied from the same ten year old file from which you took your previous post.

Shenandoah County Va Deed On 28 Nov 1782, Lewis and Barbara to Charles/Christian Peebler, Francis Peebler and Jacob Peebler. The deeds represent a division of the 509 acres in the above 1768 land warrant with Christian receiving approximately 127 acres, Jacob 127 acres and Francis 131 acres, leaving approximately 124 acres which appear to have been deeded to John and Barbara Taylor, but for which no deed has so far been located. However, on 10 Sep 1799 in Shenandoah County, John Taylor and his wife Barbara sold to Frantz Bibler 127 acres, being part of a larger tract of land, formerly granted to Lewis Biblar by deed from the proprietors office.

******She did do a good job of writing this up. And you did a GREAT job of copying and pasting it. The original author missed a few land sales, though, and you donít seem to have added any. SO Ö Lewis basically gave his brothers portions of land that he had obtained by grant from Lord Fairfax, then Taylor sold some that he had bought back to Francis. What does this have to do with Christianís paternity?

It is important to note that the consideration for the first three land transfers was 5 shillingsóa strong indication of parents deeding land to their children.

******Or brother selling land to brothers. Christianís birth can be proven. Guess the original author of this timeline didnít bother to tell you of this discovery.

The question I ask, "Why would Lewis divide his land among his siblings when he still had young children of his own to care for?"

******Christian and his younger siblings were minors in 1766. They couldnít have bought or sold property.

I think its possible that Barbara was not Lewis' first wife and the above land was divided among the children by a former marriage

******How old do you figure Lewis was on that muster roll? To have had a son in the early 1750s, he would have had to have been born around the 1720s. I guess itís reasonable to believe that a 50+ man would be drafted as a foot soldier. Average age, of course, was much younger. Maybe he was like Superman or something.

******Of course, it is possible Lewis had another wife. Wonder why his kids from that marriage didnít live with him.

. Only one of the first five children is missing: Charlotte who married Jacob Wickell in 1774. I have a note that Lewis Pibler and wife transferred property in Rockingham to a Jacob Wesklin, but that deed hasn't been located.

******Charlotte is MISSING? I wasnít aware. You have a note? Source of note, please. Lewis sold his brother Jacob and his brother-in-law Jacob land in Rockingham County. That deed hasnít been located? Perhaps the deeds were destroyed by fire, for all I know. Suppose proof of the sale exists somewhere? Where? Youíve found all this other great ten years old stuff. Donít tell me you just stopped for ten years and didnít continue.

Again, NO alias ... Just Debbie Smith, researcher.
