James McKibbon

Birth: 1828, Ireland
Death: Oct. 5, 1882, Canada

James McKibbon, son of Thomas McKibbon (17 Mar 1800, Ireland - 1876) and Jenny Johnson (1802- 1834)

Family lore says that the family came from Enniskillen, County Cavan to Fitzroy, then Pakenham and then on to Mink Lake, Renfrew County. Some infectious disease (cholera) hit Pakenham in about 1832 and Thomas had to burn all of the buildings on his land and he sold his farm to William Russell in 1833 with the stipulation that it could not be farmed for several years.

Thomas and his family and brother Henry set out to Mink Lake, and Jenny died in Douglas, Renfrew County. She is buried in a field (Tom Donahue's farm), on hwy 60 going east from Douglas to Renfrew. There are about 9 graves in total there (presumably all people who died from the same illness and Thomas who was later buried there by his son, Samuel.

Thomas and Jenny had the following children: Joseph,
Margaret, James and Jane. He later married Nancy Bell and had a son, Samuel.

Thomas apparently was not a farmer but had as much as 1500 acres of land in Fitzroy / Pakenham at one point. He would clear the land, sell the lumber and then sell the land as an improved lot for farming. I am trying to determine when Thomas came to Canada, exactly where he lived and worked in Canada and more about he and his family in Enniskillen, Cavan.

Source of family history above: Helen Wyse, descendent of Thomas McKibbon and Jenny Johnston.
