Maried Miss Adelia Smith who d. 1883, leaving one sone Merton T. Maried 2d, Miss Clara Dalrymple, who died several years ago, leaving one some Morrell Hibbard."

According to an email from Linda Frost Gilbert (don.gilbert@nau.edu) (granddaughter of Earl Randall Hibbard and Jessie Beauchamp Hibbard) dated 1/24/2007, Earl died in Sacramento, CA in 1968. He served as a Methodist missionary in China before 1944. Linda Frost Gilbert was his only descendant who attended his funeral. Apparently he left a trunk of momentos with his widow (second wife Lola) and the trunk eventually came into the possession of an antiques dealer, Beverly Wrinkle. This antiques dealer sought to return the items to a family member via a website. In 2004, a man with the surname Hibbard requested the items and paid for their shipping to him. Beverly thought he owned a car dealership (possibly Ford?) in Dallas, Texas and spent part of the year in Colorado.

Copy to the text of an email seeking information on Captain I.N. Hibbard sent to the hibbardfamily.com website:

My interest lies in the actions of Captain I.N. Hibbard after a steamship wreck that took place in 1904. I have collected material on the event, but have been able to learn very little about Captain I.N. Hibbard himself.

For example:

* What do the initials I. and N. stand for? * *He is quoted as saying that he had experienced 22 years on the seas. It certainly sounds like a naval captain, but I can't verify that.

*Did he ever work for The Pacific Coast Steamship Company, that major company that ran ships up and down the west coast for a number of years?

*I can verify that he and a partner ran a whaling Company from 1907-1910. It was The Tyee Company of San Francisco, operating out of Alaska.

*BUT I have no idea what he looked like, where his permanent home was, whether he had any descendents, or a anything else about him.

*Also, I know nothing of his connection to Dr. Lloyd Hibbard, the well-known musicologist, a professor in the Music Department of North Texas State University, Denton, Texas until his death sometime in the 1970ies or 80ies.

There are other questions, but I can't think of them right now. Mainly I want to know as much as possible about Captain I.N. Hibbard; and I thank you most gratefully for whatever information or information leads you are able to send to me.

I want to tell you at this stage, I believe it is proper to do so, that I believe that the artifact I own is historically important. It was left to his long-time friends, my parents, who in turn left it to me. I believe strongly that it belongs in a museum or even better in the home of some Hibbard family who would treasure it, tell its story over and over to family and friends, and pass it on, with pride, to future generations of Hibbards. For that reason, instead of passing it on to members of my family or selling it to some west coast museum, I want to honor it with as much background as I can so that it can take its suitable place in the history of a particular, fascinating time in Pacific coastal history.

I will then put it and the accompanying facts regarding it -- about the event and the man -- up for direct sale or auction to members of the Hibbard family only. I have no way of knowing how you would feel about this plan, but whatever amount of assistance you feel like giving me or helping me to uncover under these circumstances will be deeply appreciated.

Please respond with any information in the comments. Thank you for your help!

Corrections have been made to this entry. While the original source is unknown, we received an email from Marcia Fleming Russo with corrections. The name, Henry "King" Hibbard was corrected since the name "King" was placed in our database "nickname" field in error. When published, the program creates quotation marks if a name is placed in that particular field. King was his given name and the quotes should not have appeared around the name, King. We regret the error and have made corrections to the program fields and database.

Dee Hibbard has date of death: Dec. 22, 1951. Gwen Burk's scrapbook obit has date: Dec. 23, 1951.

Last address was 710 Virginia St., Buffalo, NY. Family bible in Mary Hibbard's possession also lists date of death as Dec. 23, 1951.

Obituary (in Gwen Hibbard's scrapbook, from Buffalo, NY newspaper): Hoyt R. Hibbard, Retired Supreme Court Crier Hoyt R. Hibbard, 80, member of a pioneer North Collins family and a retired Supreme Court Crier, died suddenly in his home, 710 Virginia St., (Buffalo), Sunday morning (Dec. 23, 1951).

Mr. Hibbard was born on a farm near the village of North Collins and attended North Collins District School. He was a graduate of the old Buffalo Business University. After he finished school, he was employed in the old Volney E. Kennedy haberdashery store near Main and Clinton Sts. He remained in Buffalo for about a year then returned to work on his father's farm in North Collins.

He was married to the former Mary Swan, Dec. 17, 1890, and bought his own farm near the village. For more than 20 years Mr. Hibbard operated the farm and also acted as an auctioneer throughout the area. During World War I he sold the farm and moved to North Collins to become manager of the old Larkin Company store there. Later, he became assistant postmaster at North Collins, a post he held for two years.

Mr. Hibbard was appointed Supreme Court crier in the early 1930s and for a time commuted between Buffalo and North Collins. The family moved to Buffalo about 15 years ago. He retired as court crier at the age of 70 and became a clerk at the Downtown WMCA. a post he held at his death.

Mr. Hibbard was postmaster and a charter member of Fortune Lodge 788, F & AM, in North Collins and was secretary of the lodge more than ten years. He also was a former member of the North Collins Board of Education.

Survivors include his wife; a daughter, Mrs. Helen Josephine Welsh, and three sons, Harland E., Hoyt R. Jr. and Hamilton E. Hibbard of Medina. Dr. Bruce Swift, minister of North Presbyterian Church, will officiate at services in the Johnson and Wilkins Funeral Home, 448 Delaware Ave., at 11 o'clock Wednesday. Burial will be in North Collins Cemetery at 2 o'clock.

NOTE, per Mary Hibbard Stack: "My father's (Hamilton) middle name was Ward. He was the only son living in Medina; I'm quite sure Uncle Harland and Uncle Hoyt were living in Buffalo near my grandparents home at the time and believe Aunt Helen was still living in Buffalo as well."

Elmer Hibbard, his wife, Lydia and their seven children arrived at the mouth of the Brazos River in Brazoria County, Texas in February 1836 from Cincinnati, Ohio. His name is sometimes recorded as "Elmore". He died in 1837 in Brazoria County, Texas shortly after the family arrived in Texas in 1836. He worked for the railroad from Bennington, New York to Ohio to Ft. Bend Texas. He is buried in Texas.

Per Rhonda Hibbard Carter, 10/22/2003: To all of those that thought that Gen. Lovell Hibbard was Elmer's father, this document settles that issue. As it turns out, Gen. Lovell was Elmer's first cousin, son of James Hibbard, Elmer's uncle. (FHL Film# 0029160, Probate Records, Windsor Co., VT)

His residence in North Collins was one of the finest in the town. It was on the corner of Main and Center Streets and is occupied by Dr. James V. Fregelette, North Collins dentist. The brick barn in the rear has been remodeled into a fine building, now the North Collins Public Library. Mr. Hibbard was active in many ways in the life of the town, political and otherwise, being one of the first to advocate the running of the railroad through North Collins."

From "The Ancestors of Pearl Hibbard"

In 1784 he settled in on a farm in West Bath, NH that was owned in his family for more than 100 years. In 1926 is was owned by Charles L. Woolson. He was a surveyor and many of the farms in Bath and vicinity were surveyed by him. A handwritten affidavit from Miss E.N. Hibbard of Gorham, ME:

"This may certify to all to whom it may concern that I, Aaron Hibbard this in the County of Grafton and State of New Hampshire. Formally of Woodstock in the County of Windham and State of Connecticut--enlisted as a Fifer in the Continental Army for the term of 3 years and served my time out. I enlisted in April 1777 and was discharged in April, 1780 at Springfield, New Jersey returned home and that summer after there was an alarm that the British were expected at Bo..land. The militia was called out and I went down to East Kingston opposite Newport and stayed there about 10 or 12 days. The next year, 1781 the year that Lord Cornwallis was taken I went to Monmouth, went to West Point and was there till after Cornwallis was taken, which during the 3 years service I was in the Battle of Germantown on 5 Oct. 1777 and the Battle of Monmouth on 28 June 1778. My Captain that I first enlisted under was Josiah Child of Woodstock and the Colonel that I served under was Wilbur Bealey of Bridgefield, CT when the Army went into winter quarters at Valley Forge in 1778, Capt. Child went home that spring or summer after and the Lieutenant who was Elijah Chapman commanded the company the remainder of the term I was enlisted."
In 1809 he was commissioned as a Lt. Colonel of the 32nd Regiment, NH State Militia and after that always referred to as "Colonel."

His pastor, Rev. David Sutherland, said of him: "He was one of nature's gentlemen."

Submitted by Aaron Hibbard

His father died in his infancy and he was bound out. The term of his service to his master was interrupted by the Revolutionary War. He enlisted as Fifer (Drummer) in the army in April 1777 and was discharged at Springfield, New Jersey in April 1780. In 1781 he enlisted again for 3 months and went to West Point and remained there until after the surrender of Lord Corwallis. During the 3 years service he was in the battles of Germantown and Monmouth. He served during the winter of 1777 and 1778 at Valley Forge. He used to relate many incidents of the suffering of the soldiers and sympathy he received because he was young and small. When on the march the good dames of the country gave him many a piece of bread and butter and dish of hominy because of his boyish appearance.

In 1784 he went to Bath, New Hampshire with his brother Timothy and they settled on adjoining farms. The farm was always held by him and is still in possession of the family, (1900). (In 1899 it was owned by Charles M. Hibbard, son of Frederick (Aaron's grandson). He had learned the art of surveying and many farms in the vicinity were surveyed by him.

By this his time was largely occupied at certain seasons of the year and was the source of considerable income. On June 26, 1809 he was commissioned Lt. Col. of the 32nd Reg. N.H. State Militia and held the office for many years. He was addressed as Colonel to the day of his death. He commanded the respect of all who knew him. At the first town meeting held in Bath he was chosen Fence Viewer and in later years served as Town Clerk and Selectman for several terms. The monument erected in the old cemetery in Bath, N.H. at the graves of Aaron and his wife is the Vermont granite, and is low and substantial in form. The inscription is as follows: Aaron Hibbard 1761 - 1835, a revolutionary soldier in the battles of Germantown and Monmouth and Valley Forge. Sarah Merrill, his wife, 1773 - 1842.

From Alvis & Aurelia Hibbard: George Andrew was always playing pranks. He once chased kids out of a field dressed as a tramp. He would go to Jacksonville, Texas about 8 miles from home dressed as a tramp and tell stories to gangs. He once went to Carrie Slider's house (his son Levi's mother-in-law) after Levi and Nora were married and asked for something to eat. She took him in and fixed him something and after he began eating she recognized him. She was going to take it back, but he said "You fixed it, so I'm going to eat it."

At age 9 he was living with Loran's brother Levi Hibbard in 1870 at Ft.Bend County, Texas. He left home at age 14. He appeared on the 1900 US Census Texas taken 27 June 1900 Precinct 3 #373, Grimes County, Texas. He and Amy Josephine "Josie" Jumper were members as of 26 May 1905 in the Woodmen of the World Life Ins. Society, Lodge #2286, Jacksonville, Cherokee County, Texas. They had moved from Grimes County, Texas (family, cattle and furniture) by train. The train cars were put on a side track at Larissa Street and during the trip, Levi, the oldest son, took care of the cattle in the cattle car. He was a builder, farmer and carpenter.

From the notes of Shelia Lyon:

Joseph, a native of Mississippi, and Delilah (Walker) Hibbard, a native of Tennessee, were married in Tennessee, but made their home in Mississippi until their son, William E., was a small lad, at which time they moved to Independence County, Arkansas, from there to Fulton County, and in 1865, came to Randolph County, where the widow and her children have since lived, the father having died in St. Louis, in 1862. He was a teacher and a farmer by occupation, a Democrat in politics, and while a resident of Fulton County, Arkansas, served several years as Justice-of-the-Peace. The mother is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, and she and Mr. Hibbard became the parents of nine children.

Joseph was a red-headed school teacher, farmer and Justice-of-the-Peace in Fulton Co., Arkansas. In the 1850 Federal Census of Tishomingo Co., MS, Joseph's mother, Ann, is living with the family. Joseph and Delilah are living in Independence County, AR in 1857 and 1858 according to Bureau of Land Management records. Ann moves with the family to Fulton County, Arkansas prior to the 1860 census where she and Joseph both purchase farms in Fulton County. There are estate settlement papers in Tishomingo County of a Joseph Hibbard who died prior to 1850. This may be Ann's husband. Also, a Joseph Hibbard is shown as a land owner in Hardin County, TN 1837.

Joseph is buried in the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis, MO., Section 21, Grave 5032. It lists him as a civilian. He died in a prisoner-of-war camp there at the post on the Mississippi River.
