I'll throw a real wrench into this thread--I am positive that I descend from William McD. Tibbets (b IN 1839). Until recently, I did not know anything about his ancestry, but I have been given information that makes it pretty clear that William McD was the son of Andrew Tibbets, b. ME, 1805. I believe this is the same family that is being discussed here. Does anyone here have more information about Andrew's ancestry? I have a lot of information (most of it first-hand from my Mother) from William's children, on down.
