I may be able to help a little. These Ribbles are all in my line. William H. Ribble is not my direct line but all the Ribbles in Reading, PA are descended from the same couple, Nicholas and Charlotte. I descend from Henry and William H. descends from Henry's brother Jeremiah. William Henry Ribble was born 29 August 1852 in Reading and married Agbes Butz 29 April 1877 in Reading. He died 25 Oct 1910 in Reading and Agnes died 8 Aug 1909 in Reading. They had three children that I know of. Rosa A. Ribble b 15 Oct 1871 d 12 Aug 1872, William H. Ribble Jr. b 3 Mar 1874 d 11 May 1911, and Annie M. Ribble b 1875. I just realized that my date for their marriage must be incorrect as all three of these children were born before 1877. I will have to check my source for the marriage again. I also show that Agnes Butz was tha daughter of Henry and Sarah Butz but I don't have any other information on them. You said she was your grandfathers step sister. What can you tell me about your side of the family? Let me know if I can help with anything else.
