My name is Alan D. Vibber b. March 17, 1981. William Vibber b. August 10. 1753 was my great-great-great-great-grandfather. I am a descendant of Eunice's brother, Salmon Vibber b. March 28, 1815 and found your page interesting and useful for my research of the family. I hope you do not mind, but copied the headstone pic to add to my family genealogy. Would you be able to provide me with additional genealogy on your family? I only have the Scholfield's on record (Her first husband) and I actually have Alpheus down as Alvin from H.A. Baker's book on p. 274. my e-mail is

Thank you very much in advance.
