Any assistance finding Lewis Tibbals, Genesee, Monroe County NY (1789-187?) parents please?

+2 votes
Several census, 1812 war documents/land warrant and Rochester Telegraph marriage entry list Lewis was born in Connecticut, but do not list parents. A couple articles say Lewis dad served in Rev. War

Pages are Tibbals-88 and 20 (2014), also need to merge pages. Thanks for any help...Les Tibbals

The genealogies on this page came from a newspaper column titled "Early Rochester Family Records" which ran in the Rochester Post-Express from July 9, 1910 to Apr. 13, 1912. The author, Anah Babcock Yates, was one of the founders of the Rochester Historical Society and an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She also was state genealogist of the New York Historical Society for many years. She died in August 1932.

Mrs. Yates was a good genealogist but she didn't include many references. You should check for primary sources to verify this information.

There are 2 scrapbooks with these newspaper columns pasted into them at the Rochester Public Library. One version is online here. It is missing random articles and the last 9 months of articles in the series. It also contains Mrs. Yates' handwritten corrections to the published articles.



Was'nt sure if you had come across this , still looking to see if we can find Lewis's parents.... I did come across some Tibbals in Ct. however , here is the link KSU
