If you havn't already read the string of messages just before yours than read them now. I suspect that Adam Ribble was probably born in Philadelphia PA about 1760 or so. I cannot prove this and if family tradition holds true that he changed his name to Ribble because he was rescued from a ship wreck by a Ribble family than obviously he would not have been born in PA. Problem is that the story of a name change like that will likely never be proven. Some of his children were bork in VA it appears. A number of people descend from this line and all of them are searching for information on Adams origin. A good place to look is in PA. I have been intending to post some of my notes on Adam to this list as I get time but have not gotten around to it just yet. There were several Adam Ribbles who resided in Philadelphia until well after 1800.
