Re: Bisby/Bisbey - VT>NY>PA>IL>MN 1700-1900s
Yes, Bisbee/Bisbey/Bisbey/Bisby started from Besbeech here in New England. Not sure what the surname means like occupation or some other meaning.. Interesting that your ancestors came from Illinois.. do you have more information on who they were? I have several families that lived in IL during the timeframe of the CW. We have just traced our Bisbey line back to 1600's in New England.
