The surname KEEBLER is a Washington Co., Tennessee name that I grew up with and never knew I was related ; there were Keeblers in school and in Gray and Sulphur Springs and Limestone - then when I got interested in genealogy I found my kinship is through my mother's families. The Barkley-Ingersoll side where I found lots of cousins. The name Kubler began in Winterthur, Switzerland and into Plaidt municipality (Germany) -VG Pellenz, Mayen-Koblenz county, Rhineland-Palatinate - with some found in Nassau, Siegen, Germany and making their way to Rotterdam (Netherlands) where they sailed to America. Not a lot is known about the early Kubler-Kibler-Keebler so there is a lot of speculation for now

From the Infoplease.com website: Emperor Frederick I bestowed (1156) the title count palatine on his half-brother Conrad, who was in possession of territories on both sides of the Rhine. More extensive than the present Rhenish Palatinate, these territories also included the northern part of modern Baden (but not the bishopric of Speyer and other enclaves in the palatine lands west of the Rhine). When Conrad's line died out, the Palatinate passed (1214) to the Bavarian Wittelsbach dynasty. The Wittelsbachs enlarged their holdings along the Bohemian border, which were constituted as the Upper Palatinate. In 1356 the German princes were granted the Golden Bull, which gave them the right to vote in the election of the Holy Roman Emperor. Their territories were henceforth called the Electoral Palatinate (Ger. Kurpfalz). The Rhenish Palatinate flourished in the 15th and 16th cent., and its capital, Heidelberg, was a center of the German Renaissance and Reformation. The election (1619) of Elector Frederick V ('the Winter King') as king of Bohemia precipitated the Thirty Years War, in which the Palatinate was ravaged both by the imperial forces under Tilly and by the Protestant army under Mansfeld. The Upper Palatinate and the electoral vote were taken from Frederick and transferred to Bavaria, but at the Peace of Westphalia (1648) a new vote was created for Frederick's successor, Charles Louis, and the Rhenish lands, devastated in the war, were returned to his control. The Upper Palatinate remained a part of Bavaria. The region became involved in the War of the Grand Alliance with Louis XIV, who ordered the destruction (1688–89) of the Rhenish Palatinate. In 1720 the capital was transferred to Mannheim

The palatine lands west of the Rhine were conquered by France in the French Revolutionary Wars. In 1803, Maximilian ceded the palatine lands east of the Rhine to Baden, Hesse-Darmstadt, and Nassau, but in 1806 he became king of a much-enlarged Bavaria, and at the Congress of Vienna (1815) he recovered part of the Rhenish Palatinate west of the Rhine, including Speyer and other enclaves. Several districts, however, were awarded to Prussia, Hesse, and Oldenburg. The Upper Palatinate was increased by the addition of Regensburg, which replaced Amberg as capital. Both the Rhenish and the Upper Palatinate became integral parts of Bavaria. After World War II the Rhenish Palatinate became (1946) a district of the newly created state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Palatinate (of the Rhine). A gold lion on a black field. In use from 14th century until the late 18th century. Norman Martin, Apr 1998

What does this "Palatinate 14th-18th century" flag really stand for? We do not have an explanation. Is it the flag of the count palatine? Of the territory? Or what? (...) The depiction of the Palatinate lion in the flag of the Bezirksverband Pfalz is just the variant that is used by Pfalz today. It is not really medieval in style, rather baroque.

The FIRST JACOB KIBLER/KEUBLER/KEEBLER swore oath of allegiance 1733 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. New visions and update on the KEEBLER family : The Kubler name is Switzerland descent who may have lived in Winderthur in Northern Switzerland making their way to Germany which bordered Switzerland. The FIRST JACOB KIBLER may have been born either in Switzerland or Germany most likely marrying in Germany to Katherine ARMAY whose family may have lived in Turkey making their way to Germany ; Pennsylvania Archives, 3rd Series, vol XIV states that Jacob Keebler of Germantown paid an effective supply tax of 12. This is in the County of Philadelphia in 1779. He was still there in 1783 and paying a federal supply tax on 90 acres, 5 horses and 3 cattle (ref: Pennsylvania Archives 3rd Series vol XVI) The SECOND JACOB KEEBLER lived in New Castle, Delaware then Chester Co. Pennsylvania, then to Berkeley Co., Virginia and on to Kendrick's Creek, Washington Co., Tennessee where I believe he is buried probably on the family farm where they first settled

    This Register, from the family bible, was started September 1, 1815 when Jacob A Kibler the first died. Handwriting changed throughout, but I am most certain that grandson Samuel Keebler/Kibler wrote many of the notes in the book. Note also wife of Jacob Keebler is referred to both as Mary and later as Polly, and that Jacob A Keebler the second is sometimes referred to as Jacob Keebler senior, while his son, the third Jacob A Keebler, is referred to as Jacob Keebler junior

    Chris Womack Morris had copied this from the family of her grandfather William Burgess Barkley. William Burgess was the son of Daniel Burgess and Prudence Mary Ann Ingersoll Barkley
