Re: Ribbles in England

The family story passed down in my family was that a Ribble escaped from England with a valuable cameo broach (suppose to be part or a royal set of jewelry). My mother still has it--supposedly handed down many generations. I was researching at the Allen Co Lib in Fort Wayne, IN years ago and came across a book on the Ribbles that stated each line of Ribbles in America had a similar story of a family member escaping from some country (Germany, France, England, etc.) with something valuable!

It is interesting that we all have similar stories.
