Anna Schields Patton Scotts ancestors came to
this continent in the Mayflower sailing ship
and settled in Massachusetts. They came from
Wales and were
cousins of Queen Victoria of
England. Letters written by the above are on

Some on-line trees (sources not verified) show her father Jacob Kibbe's line:
