Van Bibbers: My closest related line connects to Daniel Boone’s family when my cousin Olive Van Bibber married Daniel’s son. I have lots of documentation, including the book Olive helped Nathan write about Daniel’s life. These Van Bibbers also marry with Shoemakers, so I’ve had some fun (by that I mean misery) in connecting their families at every level & trying to avoid duplicates being made of people, in hopes that the relative calculation can make perfect sense. I think this 2nd Van Bibber/Shoemaker marriage makes me my own cousin but I am not sure. I will come back & figure it out when it matters.
Update: It would appear that I am my own cousin. Scratch one living relative off my list of relatives to find.
