I was searching Google for Ripley information when I came across a Awesome website on the Ripley's and many other family names that married into the Ripley's.  The author states on the first page you may copy information as long as you give credit to her site.  web address for the site is:

https://ripleyresearch.weebly.com

This is a huge site! one of the pages is a listing of all her sources and she wants everyone to share it.  Here is the link for that page:

https://www.diigo.com/list/mallory/burton/Favourite+Ripley+Research+Resources/3m6jcn604

Also, when you look under her blog area I saw where she goes on trips to where her ancestors lived and she took pictures of all the graves behind a small church.  All the graves were COATES which is one of the families that married into the Ripley family.

There is a ton of info on Ripley's sorry I didn't write all the other surnames down besides COATES.

Forgot to mention, she is on Ancestry and has over 4,000 Ripley family members on her tree.

I just printed off the Historical Record of the Posterity of William Black, which also includes sketches of 23 English Famlies and some Early Settles from New England.  

I found some info on Donkins, Dobson, Livingstons to name just a few.

Hey Cuz!

Thanks for the star!

George,

Thanks.  I find when I am googling that the longer I google the more things I find.  Prince Edward Island has a big site which covers all the surnames on the island. However, I can't say that it was sourced very well though.
