Letitia Bird McKay at Harrison Cemetery
You claim on my aunt Letitia's memorial that she came to Oregon in 1841 and possibly earlier. Can you please delete those remarks? She came in the 1841 Sinclair party from the Red River to Ft Vancouver on a promise that the HBC had made to give them land, livestock, etc, etc. The HBC did not keep their promise. She spent the winter at Nisqually. The company failed further on their promise. Crops failed, etc, etc. She then came to the Tuality Plains were her husband founded Glencoe. This is a well documented journey. They did not come on the Oregon Trail. Most of my family knows the story, I own the original pictures which I have posted. The Sinclair party was British. It had nothing to do with The US promising a DLC to entice settlers. A whole different story.

RE: Sarah Kibby or Kibbey
Yes, that is the correct 1850 census. Do you have their 2 OR land grants or their arrival documents in 1852? I can share them if you would like. Would love to have Karen email me. Is there a way I can get my email address to you? It would be great to share everything we have. I have some newspaper pictures of Tignal Kibby (E&D"s son) in Kings Valley (Eliza and David's 2nd Oregon Land Grant). My dad told me where he would go to visit his Kibby aunts (Nettie was one) in OR with my grandmother. Seems they owned and ran a gas station. Sarah Kibby Andrews was my 2nd great grandmother. I really need to get a bible record to connect David Kibby with his parents and one for Eliza and her parents. Those are the only generations for which I don't have original sources. When I have those original sources all descendants will be DAR and DAC eligible. The lineage back to colonist, Elisha Kibbe, will be recorded and preserved with all original sources for all descendants to access. I intend to give both Benton and Yamhill Genealogy societies all of the documents I secure for their collections. So... any assistance would be most welcomed. We could collectively continue the Kibbe book by Doreen Potter Hanna. Check it out on Google books if you have not yet done so. Found it at the DAR library. By the way I am in CA.

RE: David and Eliza Kibbey Photograph

I am visiting my father in Thousand Oaks. I believe that you are in Southern California?

I was just up in Kings Valley, OR. There I was given a few Kibby family pictures by a local who is related. We were put in touch by the Benton County Genealogy society. I have maps of the area for the land grants that David and Eliza had. I believe you and I share the common grandparents- Tygnal and Nancy Rudder. I have all original sources (b, m, d) for everyone leading up to the Revolutionary War period and into the Colonial era for the Kibby's. Womack's I only have up to the Revolutionary War at this point and the same for the Allen and Rudder families. I will trace back to Colonial era for them as well with original sources. I am establishing Elisha Kibbe with Colonial Dames.

What I do need is a generational link for David with his parents and Sarah with her parents. Always the hardest generation in American history. Do you know of anyone who might have Bible or church records or letters?

We have the Sarah Kibby and James Andrews bible. I will eventually post 2 pictures of David and Eliza in very old age from that Bible.

Once I have all original sources I will be giving copies to the Yamhill Genealogy Society and to Benton County as well.

I was told that the Kibby's grayed early. Thank goodness it seems none of us inherited that gene!!

Nice sharing info with you.

Womack Kibby Pic
Hey! Just wondering where you got the picture of David and Eliza. I would like to source it if possible. I will be eventually uploading pictures of them from the Sarah Kibby Andrews bible. I was directed to this picture by a guy in Kings Valley. Thank you!!

I have to say,
That I discovered your animal cemetery list and I love it, I wish I knew how to make one like it on my page. I love animals so very much. I have a suggestion for a few to add to it if you would like. This special little guy here that I am sending the number for was such a heartbreaking story, hopefully you will consider him for your list. I have the deepest respect for you for making that list. I have spent hours reading the stories of their lives. Some of which I had never heard of. This is Alan's page.

Joy Johnson Information
Thank you so much for all the information you provided on the details for Joy Johnson,,I truly appreciate your kindness in suppling this information. There should be more thoughtful people with great attitudes like you on here, instead of the horrible stalkers that send insulting and bulling messages. I truly appreciate your being so kind.

Sherman Calvin Case 25375383 is your relative. I have asked the owner of his memorial to disconnect him from the parents I'd originally matched him to.

Check the 1870 Federal Census for Meridean, Fillmore, Nebraska. It shows him, wife Margaret, son Shereman and son Elmer.
