I took your query to the Campbell County Historical & Genealogical Society where I am a volunteer. We spent the better part of the day Tuesday researching and found the following:
In a book “Campbell County, KY Marriages, 1795-1850”
Tibbatts, John W. & Ann W.; Taylor, 27 Dec. 1824, m by WM, b James Taylor, Jr.
In the 1850 Census
Tibbotts, John W. 48, Ann W.42, Katurah 23, Mary 15, James 16, Josephene 13, John 9, Zacariah T. 3
In the Wisconsin Historical Society, Kentucky Papers of the Draper Collection Vol 2 -Calendar Series pg 319
We find John W. Tibbatts was a KY Representative in Congress in Washington DC, June 1 1846
In “Newport, Kentucky, A Bicentennial History 1996“ by Thomas Purvis, Pg 98
We find Katurah Tibbatts, d/o John W. Tibbatts, granddaughter of Gen. James Taylor.
Pg 67 John W Tibbatts married Ann- d/o Gen. James Taylor
Gen. James Taylor was the son of Col. James Taylor, the owner and founder of the City of Newport, KY. He had a total of about 3000 acres of land at the mouth of the Licking River at the Ohio River. The name Keturah, Kiturah, Katurah appears several times in the Taylor family tree.
There were no birth records during that time except for bibles and word of mouth.
So we are of the opinion that, John and Ann were married in 1824. The first child during those times usually occurred within 1-2 years. So by 1850 Leo could have been born and moved out of the house, possibly to Washington, DC with his father where he met and married Estelle Florinde Blancagniel. That name is not at all familiar around Campbell County.
When we checked our family files we found a 2001 query on the Tibbetts family that you might want to contact:
Nancy Jane Ramsey Norris
5118 South 247th West
Goddard, KS 67052-8202
Good luck with your further research,
Martha & Jerry
