Family Reunion Project:

Created many years ago by Kelly for a family reunion, this is a tri-fold project board with a painted background (tree, grass, & road).  She added photos of actual family members & family graves. Since she did not have photos of any ancestral homes she used Abe Lincoln’s childhood log cabin! It’s hard to see the family tree overlay that was printed on overhead projector sheets. In person it made a great visual of Ancestors, especially for people who do not research their tree!

In America, there are a few known lines of Ribble’s. Currently we have not connected them. My Ribble line is Johann Georg who came to Philadelphia & settled in New Jersey.

Johann Georg Ribble, aka George1, was born 09 May 1709/10 in Württemberg, Germany to Christian & Margaretha Ribble2. He married Anna Eva Sebring?, aka Eva1, between 1724 & 1732.

In the calendar year before arriving in Colonial America, 1732, George & Eva baptized a daughter named Maria Barbara, aka Barbara1, in Annweiler in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

In 1733 the Ribble family arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania3 on the pink^ Mary. Ship records show George’s signature (below). I find this impressive because many were illiterate, displaying their “mark” (usually an “X”).

George & Eva moved north into New Jersey where they lived & died. There they had 3 more children, that I have verified; Anthony, William, & Jonathan George. Jan Wilson-Ramos has transcribed Johann’s will (thank you). It can be found on her site: Click here..
