    • 1) "The following information is from Patty Cooper's letter:
      'I began my family tree research with the Kibler family, and as a result have amassed a great deal of information on that family, but I have no Levi Kibler who was around early enough to have married a child of Jacob Folk. The youngest Levi Kibler I have found is Levi L. Kibler, a son of John Kebler, Sr. and Nancy Farr. This Levi was born 1/15/1811 and would seem to be too young to marry a woman whose siblings were all born in the 1770's. Also, this Levi was a bachelor all of his life. (he had a common law wife, a couple of mistresses [multi-colored] and a bunch of kids [assorted colors as well] but he died officially unmarried, save for a rather intimate relationship with his servant, to whom he left all of his estate.) There were only 2 Kiblers in the Dutch Fork area that I have been able to account for in the late 1700's - John and Michael. There was an Irig Kibler, but it seems that he did not stay long, or produce any heiers.' " Source: "Desc of Jacob Folk" by Frank/Perry/Mike/James Folk.
      2) The above comment by Patty Cooper, if accurate, would seem to eliminate a Kibler marriage to Christina Folk. Also, just looking at the age difference between the alleged "couple" simply makes a union highly unlikely; she was 33 years older than him. Steve Mears, Family Tree Compiler.

    • 1) "Apparently this daughter was already married at the time Peter Stockman became guardian for the younger children."
