David Bibby – From Lancashire, England to Ohio, USA

David BibbyDavid Bibby was born to Jesse Bibby and Hannah Yarwood in St. Helens, Lancashire, England on the 15th September 1887.  He is my 2nd cousin 3 times removed.

David’s grandfather, Jessie Bibby, born on the 7th April 1836 in Rainford to Jonathan Bibby and Ruth Glover was the half brother of my 3rd great grandfather, William Owen Bibby, son of William Owen and Ruth Glover (then widowed from Jonathan) born in 1845.

When I was carrying out a search of extended Bibby family members via the Ancestry website, I stumbled across an interesting record set – U.S. Passport Applications, 1795 – 1925. 

Within the results was an image of a passport application for David Bibby, which included photos of David, his wife, and a son called Jesse.

David Bibby died in Akron, Ohio, USA in 1946

I think others who carry out family history research would agree that it’s nice to find photographs of people who you’re related to.  And this record set is certainly a useful one to browse if you have any relatives, no matter how distant, who lived in the USA.
