In Reply to: Phebe Ribble, Jesse Buchner & John G Norton, Wisconsin Civil War soldier. by Marcia Staton of 424

Phebe Ribble & Jesse Buchner were my gg-grandparents, I am descended from their daughter Ada Lydia.

Jesse & Phebe moved their family from McHenry Co., IL in the mid-late 1850s to Wellington, Twp. in Monroe Co., Wisconsin, where they remained until their deaths Jesse (May 1885) and Phebe (September 1885). They are buried in the Glendale township cemetery in Kendall, Monroe Co., WI.

Children were:

Jared (1837)
Sarah Jane (1838)
Mary Ann (1842)
Catherine (1843)
Edith (1846)
Ada Lydia (1851)
Isabella (1853)

I don't have a whole lot on Olivia and John, but I do know their children were:

Dau Jessie (1869) who married Duncan Cameron
Son Louis (1877)

There is a young man named Jesse Cholvin who is shown living with the Nortons in Flambeau, Chippewa Co. WI in 1880 -- that is the son of Olivia's sister Sarah Jane.

Anything else I can help with please email me at I don't have photos of people other than Ada, but I do have photos of Jesse & Phebe's grave.
