Yes, Harrison County, Indiana 1850 census. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

The state of birth shows Iowa for all of the siblings, but I am very doubtful about that since Iowa wasn't settleled at that time. By doing some additioal search in Iowa I found the info that indicated the first white child born there was a female, surame Stillwell, in the mid 1800's.

According to the info at

Mary A.Bibee F 53 b. 1796 Ky Corydon, Harrison, In
James Bibee M 23 1826 Iowa " " "
Nancy I Bibee F 26 1823 " " " "
Alfred Bibee M 22 1827 " " " "
Susan Bibee F 18 1831 " " " "
Wm M 17 1832 " " " "
Mary F 12 1837 " " " "

I am not familar with Bybee's in Fountain County. However in Hendricks County In. Wm Biby married Phebe Riggen in 1859. They had 4 children, John, Henry, Rebecca and Edward. Edward was my grandfather. I have been searching for William for over a year - I think this one in Harrison County may be him, but I have not been able to verify that.

If this info helps you please let me know. My e-mail address is jflowers1@access-4-free.
