Hi Kathy, Jonas was the son of Dr Christopher Ribble & his 1st wife Katrina Brenckenhof. She died after the birth of their 9th child in Dec 1792 in Gills Co. VA. I show Jonas born ca 1785 in Gills Creek, Franklin Co VA. He married Mary Croy 30 Aug 1806 in Montgomery Co. VA. Jonas died 6 March 1847 in Niles, Michigan. He is on the 1810 & 1820 census in Montgomery Co.
I descend thru Dr Chris & his 2nd wife Mary Kegley. Their marriage bond is dated 14 Feb 1794 in Mont. County. They had another 8 children (including Philip, their 2nd son which is my line.
Dr Chris was b 16 Nov 1742 in Germany per his tombstone in the Ribble Hubbert Cemetery at the family home Sandy Mound at Tom's Creek, Blacksburg, Mont. Co. 28 Nov 1773 he & his wife Sibella (BArbara in German) from the port of Rotterdam were indentured to George Syphers of Evesham Twp Burlington Co W. Jersey as a servant for 4 years.
In 1778 to 1782 Chris is on the Tax list in Coventry Twp. Chester Co PA.
As to how they came to America, there are notes from Henry Clay Garst on the web. Go to Then go to Henry Clay Garst Notes. Henry Clay Garst's mother was Catherine who married Abraham Garst. She was the daughter of Dr Chris & Barbara, sister to your Jonas.
This is a must read... Mary Ellen
