Re: The Truth about Simon Wible
Simon Wible was the half-brother of my great-great grandfather, Samuel.Their father, Peter Wible, was a widower and had 7 children, one of which was Simon.He then remarried and had four more children, which included my great-great grandfather.Simon was the first to come to California from Westmoreland, PA.
As far as Stephen Wible is concerned, he arrived from Prussia in America with his younger brother Johannes on September 26, 1764 on the SS Brittania.I believe Stephen had 5 children (John, Andrew, George, Thomas, and Stephen).Unfortunately, I did not take a complete photo of this page in our Genealogy book, so I am not 100% sure.I will double check when I go visit my family in June.
From what I can tell, you are a descendent of the second Stephen and I am a descendent from John (Stephen's brother).John had fifteen children, the eldest being Peter Wible who was the father of Simon.
I hope that clears things up for you. Nice to meet you, cousin! ;)
