McKibben -

Posted: 10 Aug 2003 12:03PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: McKibben, Stanley, Adams, Laymon, Layman, Leonard, Cooper, Benton
My line from most recent backwards is:
Dora Belle McKibben born 30 Aug. 1870 Winterset, Iowa married Edward A. Stanley.
Harvey Stewart McKibben born 16 April 1848 Brown County, Ohio married Azuba Arabella Adams 1869 Dallas County, Iowa.
Samuel Spence McKibben born 11 Dec, 1812 Clinton County,Ohio married Mary Laymon or Layman.

I have been told, but have not verified that his parents were:
John McKibben born 1778-1786, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania married Catherine Leonard in 1808 in Highland County, Ohio.
John McKibben born about 1740 County Down, Ireland, married about 1776 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, Margaret Jane Cooper or Margaret Jane Benton.
Joseph McKibben of County Down and Elizabeth.

Interested in sharing with cousins and finding evidence of the unverified informtion.

Joyce Hodges,
Your information about the McKibben line essentially matches mine, except that I have Elizabeth Gibson as Joseph McKibben's wife. I got that information from Wrld Family Tree so I can't honestly say it is verified. The name of John McKibben's wife, Margaret Jane Cooper, I got from records in the Slinton County, Oho Genealogical Society. The name Benton I had not seen before.
Most of the additional information I have on this line has to do with the Layman/Laymon family and with Catherine Leonard's parents. Her father (James Leonard), and after he died, his widow (Elizabeth Watson) spent years trying to claim a pension for his service in the Revolutionary War. I have gotten from the National Archives over 90 pages of documentation of that effort, which does not add a great deal to the history of the family, but demonstrates the complexities of government bureaucracy even in those days. As for the Layman family, there is an on-going effort to verify family connections through DNA evidence (it only works throught the male line). Mary's father is a Jacob Layman, who married Mary Taylor, and Jacob's parents are Joseph and Anna, who were married in Virginia, and moved to Tennessee. I also have a vivid account of Mary Layman McKibben and the life of the Samuel McKibben family in Dallas County, Iowa. I shall be happy to share with you what information I have if you are interested.
Incidentally, I am descended from Mary Jane McKibben, sister of you ancestor Harvey McKibben.
