Re: Any Descendants of JOHN GIBBENS

In Reply to: Re: Any Descendants of JOHN GIBBENS by Terry Lynn Tuttle of 237

I have no information as to who the parents were for the John Gibbens I am researching. All I know is he came to America from Ireland in 1798. His wife was also born in Ireland but appears to have married here in Philadelphia, PA. but don't have any proof of that. About 1817 the family moved to Switzerland Co. IN. I have not been able to as yet establish a reason for the move. John & his wife both died in Switzerland Co. but don't know where they are buried.
They had 12 children but I don't have descendants for all of them yet so I have no idea if any of them would have gone to Brazill, IN. But if you find a tie to Switzerland Co. IN. in your line we could be related.
I'm not sure what else I can help with at this time.
