When Anna Ribelin was born on 25 July 1766, in Pennsylvania, British Colonial America, her father, Johannes Martin “Hans” Raiblin, was 30 and her mother, Anna Katherine Klink, was 26. She married Daniel Brown on 26 August 1793, in Rowan, North Carolina, United States. They were the parents of at least 3 sons and 2 daughters. She died on 11 May 1820, in Rowan, North Carolina, United States, at the age of 53, and was buried in Union Lutheran Church Cemetery, Salisbury, Rowan, North Carolina, United States.
Americanized form of South German Raible or perhaps of some other similar (like-sounding) German surname.
History: The progenitor of probably all of the Ribelins was Hans Martin Raible, a German immigrant to PA in 1752. However, his brother's surname was recorded as Reiblen.
