Thanks Howard. I like your last name, it is pretty neat. My last name sounds kind of funny since it is related to the Looney Tunes charactors or the Loony Bird. But I found out it comes from the word "Luna" meaning "moon" and it was supposedly started from Spanish folks who were survivors from the Spanish Armada off the coast of Ireland (some of them decided to stay and live there, while others were rescued and taken back to Spain). Thus, we have some Spanish influence in early Irish history.

Anyway, getting back to "GRIBBLE", thanks for the info. I will see if it connects to what I have and keep your posting in my file. Hopefully I can make a nice database as I find more ancestors to Europe and one day make a connection there. That would be great. I want to find out the main ancestor from there, I am connected to for certain.

Take care and thanks. Lisa Looney
