Theodore Wilfred Williams married Anna Ribordy. They had three children. Ruby, Ralph, and Marie. I believe they came from Clyde, Kansas. Anna's ancestors were Maurice-Isidore Ribordy (1701-1758)-->Jean-Laurent Ribordy (1733-1816) --> Jean-Nicolas Ribordy (1764-1834)--> Gaspard-Nicolas Ribordy (1811-1891) --> Joseph-Ambrose Ribordy (1840-1916) --> Anna/Annie Ribordy (1884-?) Gaspard-Nicolas Ribordy is the ancestor who left Switzerland and established in the states. He is the origin of all American Ribordy's. I am looking for any information on the Ribordy or Williams families from Clyde Kansas.
