I once had to do a family tree in 7th grade (I'm almost 25 now), and I have some information about my direct lineage. Dr. Christopher Ribble is my 4 times great grandfather. I was told that his original name was Stofel Riebel and that he Anglicized it when he immigrated to America. I was also told that he did not fight in the Revolutionary War, but that he did provide medical services. If anybody would like to know more about my branch of the family, please contact me. My aunt in Texas has been working on a genealogy off and on for years as well.
