John Ibey b. 1776 in Quebec is also one of my great grandparents. His son , Alexander, married Hester Pelky b. 1817 and their daughter, Mariah Adelaide Ibey/Iby b. 1854 , married my great grandfather, John Matthew Williams b. 1848. . Mariah and John Williams moved to New York state and lived in Ellenburg and the Saranac/Lake Placid area. It's possible the families were Loyalists and left the United States for Canada when the conflict with the British first started brewing.Some of them were granted land in Canada for their loyalty to the British Crown. Many years later couples like my great grandparents filtered back into New York state and New England.
Could you please share your information on the Ibeys? Do you have any photos? Thank you
