James Bibber 1706 Sagadahoc Co.
Posted by: Emm Date: March 23, 2000 at 11:23:48
  of 196

Please please we need some help ! Over at the Bibber page we are desperately trying to figure out who some of these early ancestors are. (this is just one of them)
Our genealogy as we have it tells us that our 1st immigrant ancestor was James Bibber
b.July 1706 on the Isle of Jersey Channel Islands England, however all efforts to locate this family over there has found nothing. He supposedly came to America in 1721 to go to NH to learn the trade of weaving under a Quaker woman named Elizabeth Hanson. She was captured and dragged off to Canada by the Indians. If this is the Same James Bibber (as the birth year is the same) in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc Co., ME, then our history as we know it has been given to us wrong. Also, to further add to the confusion, during the 1692 Salem, MA witch trials there are several accounts of testimony given by a Sarah Bibber and her husband John Bibber is also mentioned there. They were from Wenham, MA.
Can anyone who lives in Sagadahoc Co., please do a look-up for us. Most of us are spread out all over the place or unable to get to a library. (mine for instance only has a 1790 Census of Maine, and 4 other books on Maine, none of which are helpful to this situation).
We sure would appreciate Any help on this family name. Many thanks.
