I have a substantial file on the Bibbins/Bibbens family history. It includes a Joanna Edwards Bibbens b 1/5/1822 to Abraham Bibbens b 2/14/1794 d 7/9/1826 and Phoebe Ann Miller whom he m 3/1/1821. Abraham had previously m Joanna Edwards on 7/20/1817 - she was b 2/3/1798 and d 4/18/1818.
Obviously his daughter was named in honor of this first wife who may have been descended from your Edwards family. Abraham was the son of Rev Samuel Bibbens b 8/27/1768 Windham CT d 1/6/1836 Weedsport NY and Anna Kellogg b 10/23/1766 Monterey MA d 8/19/1843 Weedsport. Samuel was a Methodist minister who founded the Weedsport Methodist church.
While I have plenty of info about Samuel and his family, the pieces on Abraham's family including the two Joannas came from the Old Brutus Historic Society, 8943 No. Seneca St Weedsport, NY 13166; Jeanne Baker, Historian. Another of Rev Samuel's sons, Samuel Jr married Evelyn WRIGHT so there is a Wright connection in the family.
Let me know if there is anything more you would like.
Charlie Bibbins (p.s. Rev Samuel changed the spelling of his surname)
