Ribble Family Genealogy Forum
My ggg-grandmother's maiden name was Ribble. She is Phebe Ribble b. abt 1796, New Jersey, m. John Hinton in 1812,Trafalgar Twp., Halton Co., Ontario. John's farm & sawmill were located 1/2 way between Bronte & Oakville - Conc 3, Lot 23. I'm anxious to learn more about the Ribble family of Oakville area. Just discoverd her maiden name 2 days ago! Especially interested in her parents as you can imagine. More details follow about her family follow.
It appears that their children were: David, Francis, James (my line), George (who also married a Ribble - Mary M.), Edward, Sarah, Anthony, & Elizabeth Hinton. I say it appears because I'm lacking solid documentation on some of them - just based upon a preponderance of evidence. However, John Hinton's brother Thomas lived only a few lots away abutting Bronte. He married & had children in the same time frame, so difficult to sort children who were adults when 1851/52 Ontario census & living in households of their own.
John Hinton & wife Phebe Ribble moved to what was to be named Hinton Township in Mecosta Co., Michigan in 1855. He obtained the land patent 10 Mar 1857. Phebe died in 1860, before the census, & he remarried soon after.
