The Truth about Simon Wible
I ran across an interesting posting of a Simon Wible B1832, D1911 on a website. It seems that Simon as a young man established himself as an adventureous individual who wound up in the california/Alaska gold rush. He eventually settled in CA where he died a rich man.
Looking at Genealogy history it is difficult to validate Simon's background and family history except that he originated with the large clan of Western PA Wibles (Stephen and John) and moved with his family to Illinois in his early life.
Google Simon Wible and see if any of you can provide and family history, I would like to hear more.
