I recieved a file and it has a short history on the Phebus surname. I am hopeing that someone who has been researching the Phebus name can either connect my Phebus family to Gaston or Maybe they can use this info to help in their search.. This came from the Huntington county Indiana Histories and Families.
Phebus- The name of Phebus goes back to the Greek and Means "Shining on bearing light" IT was spelled Phoebus, applied to the god Oppollo who was the God Of Light as well as music. The first Phebus on record was Gaston III (1331-1391 A.D.) He died 1391 Count of Folex From 1341 in France. The first Phebus, George I entered Providence of Maryland in Jan 1665.
I have my family file back to George I. with alot of missing info, if you are researching this family and are willing to share info please email me.. Wendy
