John R Rible Ribble
Birth: Dec. 5, 1810
Death: Aug. 25, 1856

John Ribble was born on December 5, 1810 in Shelby County, Kentucky to Joseph Ribble and Catherine Phillips Ribble. They soon moved to Washington County, Indiana. There John married Susan Hunter on September 13, 1838. Three of their children, Edward (Edd), Ellen and Harvey (Harve), were born in Salem, Washington County, Indiana.

John and his father, Joseph Ribble decided to move to Clarksville, Red River County, Texas. Susan and John had four more children Elizabeth (Lizzie), John, William Alexander (Bill), and Thomas (Tom). Between 1853 and 1855 they moved to Honey Grove, Fannin County, Texas. Their youngest child, James, was born there.

Soon thereafter, they decided to move close to the Brazos River Indian Reservation and Fort Belknap. John built a log cabin on Rock Creek. (This is one of the first log cabins built in what is now Jack County) They settled on land that is now part of Young, Jack, and Palo Pinto counties. John went back to Honey Grove to get his father to bring him to Rock Creek. He found him ill with typhoid fever. John contracted it. Joseph died on August 7, 1856 and John died on August 25, 1856. They are buried next to each other in the Vineyard Grove Cemetery in Honey Grove. The name on their headstones is spelled Rible.
