Immediate Family

About Thomas McKibbin, Jr.

Thomas McKibbin Jr came with his parents to the United States in 1812 when he was six

years old. He had many brother's and sisters, including little Mary, who died as an infant

on the way over. The McKibbins settled in Turkeyfoot Township, Somerset County, PA

near relatives, but since they were farmers, they wanted to go west to Ohio and Indiana.

They went west with the Murrays, Smiths, Zeiglers and others to Ohio, and for a time they

settled in Ohio where Thomas McKibbin III was born. After that, they moved on to Wauseon,

Fulton County, Ohio where Thomas McKibbin Jr settled with his wife Eleanor Bayes and

her family. The rest of the family went on to Indiana and settled, which was really just

across the border in La Grange. Thomas McKibbin Jr married Eleanor Bayes, the daughter

of Thomas Bayes and Anna Wright McMillen. They had several children including Thomas

McKibbin III who married a Miss Wires, and Robert Irvine McKibbin, named after his

uncle, who married Nancy Jane Fairchild, the daughter of Sherman Fairchild and Jane

Adeline Danforth. The others were William McKibbin, Mary McKibbin, Catherine

McKibbin and Jane McKibbin. Jane McKibbin married William Garman, a Civil War vet

like her brothers, and Mary McKibbin married her cousin Thomas McKibbin. The

McKibbin family bible is in the possession of Marilyn McKibbin and it has a lot of

information about this family that came from Comber, Ulster, Northern Ireland.
