Hello, My name is Donald J. Vibbert, b. 8-19-1949 East Cleveland, OH.
My Father is Burton L. Vibbert, b. 2-23-1918 Brockport, PA.d. 3-31-2001 Cleveland, OH. My grandfather is Charles Eugene Vibbert, b. 12-21-1891 Brockport, PA. d.7-13-1978 Bay City, MI. (My contention is that…) My great-grandfather is William R. Vibbert, b. 3-17-1828 NY or PAd. 4-03-1926 PA.
Need to confirm the middle initial and birth date ofWilliam Vibbert, who was married 11-27-1870 to Eunice Hutchins, b. 8-22-1852 IN.d. 12-12-1942 MI. . Within this forum; there are references to William R., William E., and just plain William. In addition, there are two birth years given, 1828 and 1835. The most common explanations that come to mind are; there are two or more William’s, and/or William the husband of Eunice Hutchins may have altered his birth year because he was so much older then Eunice.
Any documentation , explanations, or thoughts on this out there?It would be greatly appreciated.
