Thanks for your reply to my message.Since that first post, I managed to locate and visit a currently living "Calvin Ribble" in Portage Ohio and I have corresponded with his sister, Rose, who was able to provid quite a bit of information.Rose had many names, dates, etc., which I lacked but I had many photographs and other details which she did not have - so we had a fruitful exchange of information.I wonder if you are alsorelated to this particular branch?
My connection is as follows:
Calvin Norton Ribble (1847-1890), married Elizabeth Freed. They had a son Calvin George Ribble (1876-1945), who married Lillian Shields. They had a daughter Helen Marguerite Ribble (1899-1995), who married George Albert Bradley.
Helen Marguerite Ribble Bradley was my grandmother so Calvin Norton Ribble would be my 2nd great grandfather.
But I still have lots of questions about these Ribble, Freed and Shields ancestors.I would like to exchange info with you.
