  1. I am a descendant of Johann Christian Bible. We have always been told the our name was Biebel which means BIBLE. Johann Adam Bible only came with his wife as they married in 1748 and there son Johann Georg Bible was born and died in 1749 before they sailed. They were all born in Alsace, France. I descend from their son Johann Christian Bible.

    The migration from Germany was actually in 1709 and 1710 as I had ancestors who left Germany for William Penn’s colony in Pennsylvania.

    • So there were other members of the Bible family before Johann Christian? Interesting. Thanks for stopping by to share!
