My family is decended from Edward Ross Rippy of Ireland. He married Susannah Thomas (Tomes?) in Virginia around 1750-60. They moved to North Carolina and settled near the Haw River. My lineage continues through Edward's son Edward, then to Jesse, then to Annamos Kirby, then to William Andrew, then to Harold, and finally to my dad, Bruce. I am currently trying to expand my tree to include more info on the wives of this family, as well as anything before the first Edward. If anyone wants info or has some for me, please email me.
