I'm trying to verify information that I've heard from three people but have never seen documentation or discussion about this Phibbs Genealogy topic. Anybody have information to discuss? Here is the information (that I've heard from other researchers):
1) "I'm from the line of the three (Phibbs) brothers who left Ireland for the Eastern USA in 1753"
2) "I'm getting more information from my Grandma about the three brothers from W. Virginia. Allegedly one went to Ohio, one to the Carolina's and one to Virginia, I think."
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Can anyone expand on this or clarify the information?
I've traced my Phibbs back to Ohio, 1830's and there is evidence that the family came from Virginia, as one of the sisters lived into the late 1800's and lists Virginia as her place of birth consistently on the census records. I have good information that my line of Phibbs are related to a Phibbs line coming out of Pennsylvania as well but not sure how. I've done extensive research on the Phibbs of Highland, Adams and Brown County, Ohio between the years of 1820-1860 if anyone is interested.
