RE: Amanda Hill
Hi cousin! I am very happy that you found a use for my research! You may use it however you wish, but always include the sources. In the sources, please capitalize the "V" in Vivian's name, otherwise all is fine.

My maiden name has been spelled Grabill since about 1845. When my gggreat grandfather John Thomas Grabill migrated from Lee county, VA, he changed it from Grabeel/Grabeal.

The old family was from Switzerland, traveled through France & stopped there for one generation, and then went on to what is now Germany. Part of the family went to America at this point. My direct ancestors part stayed behind and migrated through Germany as needed to stay alive, due to wars and religious persecution.

My gggggreat grandfather Johann Christian Grebel, son of Christian (Graybill) Krebiel or Krehbiel, and Dorothea Elisabeth Schultzin, was born 10 March 1751, baptized 14 March 1751 in Brandenburg (Havel, Brandenburg, Preuben, Germany. Here, they had their own very organized community with mills and specific tasks. Johann (John) immigrated with his father on the ship "Friendship" in 1753. [Not sure what happened to Dorothea]. Once in the new land--Lancaster, PA, they were at the mercy of the English for the spelling of their name for everything--on land records, military records, in school. I believe Christian married Mary Maria Landis, but I would like more proof. And I do consider other information when it is offered, as I and my sources might have errors!

John lived in Somerset or Botetourt Co., Pennsylvania when his first son was born, but migrated to the strong German settlement in Shenandoah, VA where his next son was born. Then eventually on to the frontier in what is now Tennessee, Kentucky and Lee County, VA. John married Catherine--quite possibly Catherine Gochenour--but her last name is not 100% proven. His son Jacob Grabeel is my ggggreat grandfather.

Yes, I am certain that we are related. I researched your line, and many other lines of the 20+ spellings of Krebiel. I keep connections with other "cousins" and share research. I had my DNA tested, and also my father's. We match many Krebiel/Graybills--is really a sorting challenge! We match so many other people who were here long before the Revolutionary War.

I am planning on going to Germany, Swizterland & Denmark in 2018 on another genealogy trip, providing there is a climate of peace then.

Evelyn Jessup Anderson #48448878
I looked for a marker, found a marker for Helen E Anderson in spaced noted in your request.
Helen's dates are 1918 - 1991. Cemetery records do not show a Helen E Anderson, but also show the Evelyn Jessup Anderson cremains. I did take a picture if you want it?

RE: The Wollertons of Chester County, PA
I've never seen that site, thanks for sharing! I just don't know that the Ziba in Penningtonville Cemetery in Atglen PA is the same Ziba from West Chester. Even though the name is uncommon, it just isn't adding up. They have different professions as well as different wives and children in the census. I guess, if I were you, I wouldn't feel comfortable even linking that headstone with this Ziba until I was sure it was him. (Just my opinion!) If I get a chance, I'll stop by or call the church and see if they have any further info. Also, the Ziba from West Chester, on that site, appears to have a strong Quaker background. The headstone that I took a photo of was in a Presbyterian cemetery. There's just something a bit odd.
As an aside, I also have Harvey's and Cloud's in my tree. They were Quakers and from the Bradford Twp. area (as were Wollertons'), as well as Delaware. Could be I am related after all. I will check my info!

RE: The Wollertons of Chester County, PA
After further digging, I have found a Ziba Wollerton twice in the 1860 census, both in Chester and Lancaster Co's, PA, a year's difference in year of birth, different wives. You probably already have this info. It's just very strange since Ziba is an uncommon name.
I'm not quite sure what to think now ...

RE: The Wollertons of Chester County, PA
No, I am not related to Wollertons. Might you be? I did a quick search and I did find the will of Ziba's sister Mary, and Ziba is mentioned a few times. No parent's names were mentioned in the will, but there are quite a few relatives of Mary mentioned.

I also found a few bits of interesting info. One document was a Petition for Guardianship dated Jan. 3, 1812. Petitioner was Mary Wollerton, "widow and relict of Ziba Wollerton,late of the township of East Bradford." She is requesting a guardian for her 5 minor children: guardianship of 5 minor children: Shebna, Jane, Zornah?Zeniah?, Ishmael & Ziba. Also, in 1827, the appointed guardian filed against the estate. There are about 7 pages of so about the guardianship. Interesting enough, there was no Mary listed but perhaps one of the siblings went by the more common name of Mary.

SO, I would say that Ziba's parents are Ziba and Mary Wollerton.

If you'd like copies of the original documents of any of the above, click on any of my memorials, click the edit button and click on #6 for other. You can send me your email that way, if you'd like, and I can send you what I've found.
Just let me know!
