GIBB/GIBBS in Pennsylvania

GIBB/GIBBS in Pennsylvania

Posted: 8 Jan 2006 10:43PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: GIBB GIBBS
I have been searching (electronically and on foot) for GIBB and GIBBS information for over 8 years. I have found perpetual dead ends. I have decided to take a new approach.

If you have ANY information on any GIBB or GIBBS families in Pennsylvania (particularly Cumberland and Lancaster counties) please send it to me. I will compile it and send you (as a thank you) all of the information I obtain. If possible, please include the source and any attachments.

I am not researching this family so no need to send back any information--just helping out (I hope).
I checked Cumberland and surrounding counties and found the following:

Note--I believe the listings for GIB may not be the same as GIBB/GIBBS. I have seen GIB referred to as Kipp so it is something to keep in mind and look into.
