153 From Duane Young:

Edward RICHMOND, the "founder" of the Richmonds of Rhode Island,married twice. First to Abigail DAVIS, prob. in June 1658, atNewport, Newport County, Rhode Island. Second to Amy BULL, dau. ofthe Governor of Rhode Island, Henry Bull, bef. August 20, 1685, whenthey entered into a deed together. He's reported in some on-linesources to have had a third wife, Grace CHAMBERLAYNE, but I have no documentation to show that that was true.

Edward is found listed numerous times in the Colonial Records of RhodeIsland. Of note in 1661 he recieved a share of land in "Misquamacut(now Westerly, Washington County, Rhode Island). In 1663 he recieveda legacy of 40 acres and some clothing from the will of his fatherJohn of Taunton, Massachusetts. In 1667-72 he was Solicitor General(of Rhode Island). In 1677 he recieved a grant of land in the new town of East Greenwich.

155 From Duane Young:

For Elisha, see Arnold, James N., *Vital Records of Rhode Island*,(Narragansett Historical Publishing Co., 1891-1912), vol. 5 [Washington County], North Kingstown, p. 85.

Lydia is described as "daughter of Elisha, late of North Kingstown."In other words by the time she married in 1779 he was deceased. Infact no Elisha is found in the *Census of the Inhabitants of theColony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, 1774*. This couldmean nothing, but more likely it means that Elisha was deceased before1774. However, an Elisha Mitchel (sic) appears in Glocester in the*The Rhode Island 1777 Military Census*, age 16-50, A[ble]. This could be coincidence, and not the same man.

There is the birth record of Elisha Mitchell, son of Ephraim and Deborah, b. March 14, ___ (Arnold, North Kingstown, p. 85).

Also, an Elisha Mitchell appears in Howard M. Chapin's *Rhode Islandin the Colonial Wars; A List of Rhode Island Soldiers and Sailors inKing George's War, 1740-1748, and A List of Rhode Island Soldiers andSailors in the Old French & Indian War, 1755-1762* (1994, orig. pub.1918, 1920), p. 101. This Elisha Mitchell served in Capt. Jenckes'(2d) Co. (of Col. Sam'l Angell's Regt.) in 1757, in Capt. Rose's (7th)Co. (of Col. Godfrey Malbone's Regt.) in 1758, in the campaign of 1759(no unit given), in Col. Harris' Regt. in 1760 (but appears to havemissed the campaign of 1761), and served in Capt. Hawkins' Co. (4th ofCol. Sam'l Rose's Regt. for Havana) in 1762! He was a campaign or twoshort of as close as a Provincial came to a professional soldier in those days!
Mitchell, Elisha (I710)
156 From Duane Young:

For ref. to Reuben, see Barbour Collection, Connecticut Vital Records;Voluntown: Births, Marriages, Deaths, 1708 -- 1850, (Connecticut State Library, 1919), vol. 2, 132.

Reuben Rouse is not listed as a head of household in the 1790Voluntown Federal Census. This only means that by 1790 he was not yet21 (or a "head of household"). However, in that census there are no"Rouse" families in Voluntown, only several "Rhodes/Rodes/Rode" and"Robins." This only suggests that wherever Reuben's parents andfamily were in 1790, they were simply not in Voluntown. They were also not in Plainfield, Killingly, Brooklyn, Pomfret, or Ashford.

In Canterbury there were a "Rose, David; 2; 3; 7; -; -," and a "Rose, John; 1; 1; 3; -; -." 
Rouse, Reuben (I695)
157 From Duane Young:

In the "Scripture Book" given in 1888 by Lillies, Isaac's widow, toLydia, their youngest daughter, Isaac S. Hawkes is given as being b. July 10, 1817. From various Censuses, he was born in "Rhode Island."

Elijah Armstrong, a veteran of the AmRev, apparently of Providence Cty[County?], Rhode Island, as that is where he applied for a Bounty LandWarrant (BLW) on 17 Sep. 1818, lost his first wife in 1825. Hemarried Mercy Hawkes, a widow, in Dec. 1827, and he subsequently died28 Feb. 1829 at Glocester, Rhode Island. Isaac S. Hawkes,"grandson," at the time "aged 36," stated he "lived with [the] widowwhen she married [the] soldier." Mercy, "widow," applied 21 Jun. 1853at Providence Cty, Rhode Island, aged 79 [sic], as an Assignee for theBLW. Source: Mercy, W5639, BLW #19713-160-55, Rhode Island Line. "Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files."

Thus, in 1827 Isaac was living with his grandmother, Mercy Hawkes,presumably in Providence, or Gloucester, Rhode Island. He would havebeen nine (9). Alpheus, the best candidate I can find for a father,died in February of that year, and one could presume that Mercy wasleft with the child if Abigail, his second wife [if she was stillalive herself], wanted no part of him, even if (as I assume) he washer sister's child and so both a nephew and a step-son! Stranger things have happened!

Isaac and Lillies' marriage is recorded in the Barbour Collection of Connecticut Vital Records in the Connecticut State Library.

The family appears on the 1850 Census in Ward 1 of Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island, Dwelling 351, Family 501 with:
Isaac, ae. 32 (i.e. b ca. 1818), "watchman," b.p. Rhode Island
"Lillis," ae. 29, b.p. Rhode Island
Isaac, ae. 5, b.p. Rhode Island
Susan, ae. 1 6/12, b.p. Rhode Island

The family appears on the 1860 Census in Brooklyn, Windham County, Connecticut, (NARA M653/R92/pg. 250] with:
Isaac /42/
Lillie [sic] /39/
Isaac F. /15/
Susan A. /11/
Franklin O. /8/
Major [sic] /5/
Lydia A. /1/
Marcy [sic] Armstrong /84/ b. Rhode Island

This clinches the connection between Isaac Sanford Hawkes and the"Isaac S. Hawkes" of the Elijah Armstrong BLW claim. Also, Mercy'sbirth and death dates appear in Lydia Hawkes' "Scripture Book," and Lillies was Executrix of Marcy's probate in 1864.

"Hawkes, Isaac S., died Dec. 8, 1860, the Brooklyn, Windham County,Connecticut, Vital Records: vol. 3, 343; cause of death, "Nephritis"[kidney disease], Isaac S. Hawkes, age 42, bp. R. Island, occ. Farmer, res. Brooklyn, married.

Isaac's age at death on the Brooklyn VR (42) would conflict with thebirth date provided by his wife, Lillis Randell (Hopkins) HawkesAdams, in the "Scripture Book" she gave their dau. Lydia. PerhapsLillies was just very shaken and confused when he died. He was quite young and she was left to care for a large and very young family! 
Hawkes, Isaac Sanford (I327)
158 From Duane Young:

In the 1920 Census he was shown as: Connecticut 1920, Windham[County], E. Killingly Village, 51-334-16-4, Hawkes, Franklin O.,white, [age] 68, Rhode Island, living alone. See

Hawkes, Franklin Olney (I628)
159 From Duane Young:

Isaac's father, Isaac Sanford Hawkes, died in the winter of 1860, whenyoung Isaac was just 16. He had to shoulder responsibility for thefamily farm with his mother for a number of years. Probably about thetime he was 25 he turned over running the farm to his younger brotherFranklin, then just 18, and became a "Tin Peddler." He carried onthis "business" across parts of Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Yorkand Pennsylvania, for about ten years. At some point in his "travels"he met the Briggs family, and at age 37 he married Flora, herself then only 15!

According to the LDS's IGI, the marriage was "Civil, Foster,Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island," and the LDS source is"Batch number: M501942; Dates 1850-1885; Source Call No.: 0941054; Type: Film; Printout Call No.: NONE"

Recently (Jan. 2000) Dan Hawkes sent notes from his grandfatherBernard's birth certificate that shows he was born "Ezra Hawkes," thathis birthdate was 21 March 1886 (not 5/31), and that he was born inPomfret. It shows his parents as Isaac F. Hawkes, age 41, birthplaceof Foster, Rhode Island, and Flora E. Briggs, age 20, birthplace Voluntown, New London County, Connecticut.

At some time, perhaps while his wife was Howard Valley postmistress,he was a mail carrier for Hampton, Connecticut. He also worked at the Creamery in Pomfret Landing, Pomfret, Windham County, Connecticut.

In the 1920 Census he was shown as:
CT 1920, Windham, Hampton, 51-333-3-64
Hawkes, Isaac F., white, 75, Rhode Island
" Flora E., wife, 53, Connecticut
" M. Elmer, son, 30, Connecticut
" Raymond A., son, 25, Connecticut.

Miller, Lydia (I853)
161 From Duane Young:

Lydia was single in 1888 when her mother gave her a "Scripture Book"with dates of family births and deaths. She added to it, includingmarriages. She ultimately gave it to Lura (Hawkes) Fitts, her niece, at some point.

Lydia lived with her mother apparently until Lillies died. Shemarried late in life, after her mother's death. She moved to EastKillingly, about 3/4 of a mile from the Rhode Island state line (ca.1914), where, according to her obituary, she lived for 26 years. Shewas a member of the Union Baptist Church, and was buried in theBartlett Cemetery. No children. She was quite close to Lura (Hawkes)Fitts when Lura was a girl, taking pity on the only girl among sixboys. Lura usually spent part of each summer at Aunt Lydia's and Grandma Adam's.

Ashton Keynes, 29 March, 1736.
Dear Cousin:
It is agreed by all that our ancestors first settled at Rodborne,Wilt; that two branches lived at Chedderton in Lyddiard TreygozeParish, Wilts and Brinkworth, Wilts. The farthest of our family I cantrace is our grandfather who lived at Christian-Malford, Wilts, about3 miles from Chippenham in the county. The house is now standing.Henry, our grandfather, had 4 wives and as I have been informed, 25children, 12 of whom grew up to be men and women. Children by firstwife: John and Henry ( The Amisbury Branch**) now decending from Johnwho killed his brother after (during?) the civil wars and cost ourgrandfather so much money to save his life that his estate was sold orirrecoverably mortgaged. Children by second wife: Peter, father toGeorge and William. Children by third wife: Silvester##, Oliffe myfather , James died at Campden in Gloucester County and left children,Francis died unmarried. Children by fourth wife: Jane, Edward, Marydied unmarried, Elizabeth married, but died without offspring, Thomasine married Ashton Keynes and left children.
John and Henry our grandfather's sons were officers of distinction inthe civil wars, one in the king's army and the other in Cromwell's andour grandfather's home was often plundered by both armies, the king'sparty saying he had a son in Cromwell's party, and Cromwell's party that he had a son in the king's.
Your affectionate though unknown kinsman
Oliffe Richmond

** John Richmond of Amesbury, Wiltshire, who married a Mary Beckingtonin 1668, and had 3 sons and 3 daugthers, whose births, etc., arerecorded in Amesbury, must have been, according to the letter ofOliffe Richmond quoted above, a son or grandson of John Richmond ofTaunton. It is barely possible that it is so, as John Richmond wasabout 41 yrs. old when he left England, which leaves ample time for aprevious marriage in England, and would permit the Amesbury branch to claim the same ancestor.
## Dr. Sylvester Richmond, the brother of John Richmond, obtainedgreat celebrity as a physician throughout the counties of Lancasterand Chester, and gained a large property. He was elected Mayor ofLiverpool, and was actively engaged in supporting the royal causeduring the agitations of that period. He Married Sarah Tarleton, andhad 5 sons and 2 daugthers. Rev. Legh Richmond, author of "The Dairyman's Daugther," was one of his descendants. He died in 1692.
Richmond, Henry (I831)
168 From Duane Young:

See: Barbour Collection, Connecticut Vital Records; Voluntown: Births,Marriages, Deaths, 1708 -- 1850, (Connecticut State Library, 1919), vol. 3, 4, birth derived from age at marriage in vital records.

In the 1850 Census for Warwick, Rhode Island (only a few days ride byhorse or coach from Voluntown), conducted 25 Sept. 1850, the family of Oliver Briggs, a weaver, Dwelling 1083, Family 1204, contains:
John (sic), age 19 (b: Abt. 1831), bp. in Rhode Island

"John R. Briggs, Æ 19, farmer, b. in Warwick, R.I., res[ident] ofVoluntown, m. Harriet L. Bitgood, Æ 20, of Voluntown, Oct. 6, 1850,[marriage performed] by Henry Forbush;" Barbour Collection, Voluntown, New London County, Connecticut, VR, vol. 3, 4.

However, despite the reference to John being a resident of Voluntown,it would appear John took his bride back to Warwick. The obituary oftheir eldest daughter Helen (aka Nellie E.) Briggs, who later marriedBenjamin R. Briggs (no relation), stated she was "born in Warwick,R.I., January 11, 1855, oldest of the seven daughters of John R.Briggs and Harriet E. (sic) Bitgood Briggs. When a small child her parents moved to Voluntown."

Briggs, John Richmond (I329)
169 From Duane Young:

See: Richmond, Joshua Bailey, The Richmond Family, 1594-1896, and Pre-American Ancestors, 1040-1594, (Boston, 1897), 1-2.

Purchaser, one of the founders of Taunton, Massachusetts. Served inEnglish Civil War. Accidently killed his brother Henry during thewar. According to the Richmond Family History (Boston, 1896), thefamily of John Richmond traces back through twelve (12) generations toRoaldus Musard de Richmond, who came from Brittany with William the Conquerer.

The traditions recorded in the manuscript of Rev. Legh Richmond, iftrue, would explain the mystery which shrouded the life of JohnRichmond. Soon after the death of his brother Henry, mentioned inthis manuscript, it seems probable that he joined a colony of cadetsof noble English families on the western coast of Ireland, who hadchosen this remote spot where they could engage in commercial anmdother pursuits without shocking their aristocratic relatives. HereGeorge Richmond, possibly a cousin of John Richmond, was establishedand largely interested in navigation. It is well known that hecarried on an extensive and flourishing trade with Saco, Me., in 1635. It is the opinion of the writer that John Richmond came to America onone of these trading vessels about 1635, and engaged in business Saco. Records of Courts held at Saco in the Province of Maine, under Capt.William Gorges, mention sundry suits by and against John Richmond ----among others, a suit by John Richmond "to collect from Thomas Lewis 6lbs. and 10 shillings for 2 babeife;' showing that a john Richmond was engaged in trade in that place 7, 1636.
It is positively known that John Richmond was one of the purchasers ofTaunton, [Massachusetts], in 1637. The birth of his daugther Sarah,in 1638, and of Mary, in 1639, probably occurred in Taunton, Mass.,but his name does not appear in the list of men able to bear arms in1643. Nothing seems to be known of him from 1643 to 1655 andtradition leads us to believe that he returned to England and engaged in the civil wars between the dates mentioned.
The compiler, in his childhood, always heard John Richmond referred toas Col. John, and that he was engaged in the English civil wars,which, if true, would account for the absence of his name from allrecords in this country between 1643 and 1655, and the sad tradgedymentioned in the letter of Oliffe Richmond might have occurred during this time.
In his Will is the following bequest: I give and bequest unto myeldest son John all my writings* in my chest which is in my son-in-lawEdward Rew's house. This treasure, now lost to us, would undoubtedlyremove the mystery which surrounds his life, and furnish us with facts where we have only traditions.
Although somewhat vague and unsatisfactory, the compiler believes thatthe results of his researches relating to our English ancestors willprove of sufficient interest to the family to warrant their beingincluded in this volume; but it is with undisguised satisfaction heturns from the region of "Quien sabe?" with its mysteries, romance anduncertain traditions, to the well established dates and facts concerning John Richmmond of Taunton.
It will give the compiler great pleasure if anyone can give himinformation of this chest of "writings" of John Richmond: Also of thesilver-mounted sword and silver tankard of Sylvester Richmond (page17)--- and "Father Richmond's desk,"--- the latter was left by the will of Thomas Burgess, to his son Edward (page 16).
John and Edward, his sons, are known to have had excellent educations. That their father signed his will by his mark was undoubtedly theresult of feebleness, as he refers to his writings in the document, which was made but a short time before his death.
It has been extremely interesting to trace the movements and study thecharacteristics and condition of the different generations of ourfamily. John Richmond of Taunton, our ancestor, was a largelandholder, and quite wealthy for that time. His sons, John andEdward were educated and refined gentlemen. They were interested inpurchases of extensive tracts of land from the Indians, both in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
John 2 settled on the land of his father in Taunton, and was prominentin every important transaction connected with the town, his nameappearing constantly in the records. Edward 2 lived in Newport, wherehe was Crown Solicitor and Attorney-General, and one of the leadingmen in the town. Later in life he settled and died in Little Compton, R.I., where he was a large landholder.
John and Edwward divided their land among their children, and they inturn continued the division, and this generation was largelyinterested in real estate and agriculture. The subdivision of theland reduced the size of the farms, and the next generation was forcedto seek new fields. many followed trades and professions, whileothers occupied land in other sections of the country. Thedescendants of John first scattered over Massachusetts andConnecticut, then through the Middle Western States, and a few in theNorthern and northeastern States: while the offspring of Edwardspread over Rhode Island, a large number settled in New York and theWestern Lake States, and quite a large colony in the southwesternsection of the country. Several of the descendants of both John andEdward removed to Canada on account of attachments for the mother country and religious scruples, being Quakers and non-combatants.
These early pioneers were a hardy race, of powerful frame and largestature. They were noted for great strength, and were proud of theirskill with the axe. On "town-meeting day" they followed the oldEnglish custom of engaging in wrestling and other games to show theirprowess, and a man was great according to his deftness in these manlysports. Family traditions state that the "Richmonds carried away their full share of the trophies in these rustic tournaments.
Richmond, Colonel John (I828)
170 From Duane Young:

The middle name of "Fielder" was supplied by my mother, Dorothy{Fitts) Young, who as usual, rattled off a story about the name of thechild. We found his death recorded in Providence, Providence County,Rhode Island, where he was listed as "Alpheus B." Although he has atombstone in Pomfret, Windham County, Connecticut, he may haveactually died in Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island, given that death record.

Also see _Rhode Island Vital Records_ 8:219, d. given as "18 Jun 1848"and "2 yrs" and which curiously records his "kin" as Joshua Hathermanand Elizabeth Hathaway! These same people are recorded as the kin of James as well.

Louie suffered with a severe mental disorder in his later adult years. ie. 1940s until his death.

Buried in Hillside Cemetery, Unionville- to right and up hill from main entrance.
Originally buried in a potters grave in Middletown. RKV-2 laterlearned of this and had Louie's body moved to the Vibert plot inHillside Cemetary. Today (1998) the grave is unmarked. His two sons are also buried there in unmarked graves.

TMV told the story: In the 1920's or 30's Louie got on a train andwent to Washington, District of Columbia to warn the President of aplot to murder him. RKV or his brother had to go down and rescue Louie from the clutches of the FBI.

Subject: [Fwd: Hawkes Family Info]

Greetings from your cousin in Idaho,

I, too, found a posting by Duane. He's been a treasure-trove of info
(befitting a professional historian). Here's the body of the message I
sent to him originally, so you can get caught up.

I found this post, at, of great
interest. I believe that Isaac S. Hawkes was my great-great
grandfather. My great grandfather was Isaac Farmer Hawkes, whomarried Flora Briggs. My grandfather went by Bernard (Barney) EzraHawkes, although his birth certificate shows Ezra Bernard Hawkes(5/21/1886), born in Pomfret. I'm interested in any family history ofIsaac S. Hawkes' descendents. My grandfather died in 1977, but hementioned on more than one occasion that his grandmother married aJohn Quincy Adams after his grandfather died. He had several brothers(Lewis, Clayton, Raymond, Elmer, Lester [others?]), and a sister, Lura.
I believe he and his older brother Lewis left home when he was 13. Hemigrated to North Dakota in the early 1900s, where my dad, uncle andaunts were born. He followed my folks/our family to Washington statein 1966, where he resided till his death. I have little/noinformation on his siblings or their descendents, so would appreciate any information that you might have.

Thanks in advance.

(One correction to the above - Lester was the oldest)

My dad, Robert Hawkes, is 69 and lives about 25 miles north of Coeur
D'Alene, Idaho (Nebraska of Spokane, Washington). He is another ofyour mother's 1st cousins. As noted to Duane, there wasn't muchinformation, other than narratives from my grandfather, about oureastern family. Duane has shared extensive info about our commonancestors AND Hawkes descendants through our parents generation. I'mtrying to update the North Dakota/Washington connection. As Duaneresponded in his message, I can ship files in Family Tree Maker, orexport to GEDCOM files, or even to html (if you don't have anygeneaology software). My dad and my brother each have differentprograms, but I've been able to share via GEDCOM format. I've alsogot all of Duane's messages in Adobe Acrobat format, combined into one file, that I could send along.

Also, let me know if you're interested in old family photos that I've
scanned into the computer. I've had Duane and his mother identify some
taken in the 1930's of great-grandmother Flora Hawkes, her Aunt Lydia,
as well as a group photo that includes your and my grandfathers, Duane's
grandmother, Lura, and two other brothers.

I also have a separate one of your grandfather that Flora sent to my
grandfather in North Dakota. I've also got a scan of Bernard's birth
certificate info, and one of his baby photos. Lots of other info too.
Its really depends on how much you're willing to put up with.

I've also got one other project that I've yet to complete. About 25
years ago, one of my uncles (spouse of dad's sister) taped a
conversation with my grandfather and my uncle Lester (named afterBarney and Louis' brother). All three have since passed away. My dadhad the tapes, but they required some maintenance. I've made oneduplicate set, but have also digitized them onto the computer. I'vemade one set of CDs for my Dad's Christmas present. But I'd like tospend a bit of time cleaning up the background noise and amplifying the parts of the
conversation that are somewhat less audible. Once done, its a easy task
to duplicate onto CDs.
The bulk of the conversation is about Barney's (Bernard's) life inNorth Dakota in the early 1910's. I'd certainly ship you a copy, as its available, if you're interested.

Anyway, enough for now. This gives you some things to ponder. I'm glad
you found Duane's posting. He's very diligent and prolific at surfacing
info, and we'll all be enriched by his efforts. But I've got lots of
questions about the stories my grandfather told about his family, so I'm
looking forward to shipping notes back and forth.

Bye for now,

Bernard (Barney) Hawkes moved to North Dakota in the early 1900s. Hesettled in the Glenfield-Sutton are and farmed. He retired fromfarming in 1965 and settled in Newport, Washington.[Ezra Hawkes Family.ftw]

Bernard (Barney) Hawkes moved to North Dakota in the early 1900s.

Son Robert Lee Hawkes has his birth certificate that identifies him asEzra Hawkes, with a birth date of 5/21/1886. However, "Barney"celebrated it at the later date for as long as I could remember(DLHawkes, 1/21/00). Along this line, Robert Hawkes also has a smalldate book of his mother's (Adeline) that contains family dates,including Bernard's birthdate as 5/31/1886. Adeline passed away in1946. Also, he was Bernard Ezra Hawkes to his immediate descendants,and called himself Barney. He was also known as Bernard to Duane C.Young, who is the grandson of "Barney's" sister, Lura Hawkes Fitts.On 2/19/00, Barney's surviving 2nd spouse, Leona, said he'd told herthat his parents called him Bernard as a small child and that was the name he'd always gone by.

Bernard died of a kidney infection after a short illness, at Newport, Washington

OSCAR BENJAMIN Vibert, breeder of fancy poultry, Hazardville, was bornin East Hartford, Conn., Feb. 23, 1842, a son of Oliver and Nancy(Loomis) Vibert, both natives of Hartford county. His paternalgrandparents were Timothy and Nancy (Risley) Vibert; his maternalgrandfather was Benjamin Loomis of Windsorville, a major in the militia during the old militia days. Both grandpafrents were farmers.
Oliver Vibert, the father of our subject, was a prominent farmer ofEast Hartford, where he spent most of his life, but died inGlastonbury. His children were: Oscar B., Edwin, Adelaide (Mrs Wm. Juckett), Watson, and Nancy.
Oscar Benjamin Vibert was reared in East Hartford, where he received acommon and private school education. In the seventeenth year of hisage he began an apprenticeship at the bootmaker's trade, serving twoyears. Then followed a brilliant carreer as a soldier, Mr. Vibert onAug. 19, 1861, enlisting in Company A, Seventh Conn. Vol. Inf.; here-enlisted as a veteran in December, 1863, in the same company andregiment. He was wounded May 16, 1864, at Drury's Bluff, Va., and wastransferred to the Seventeenth Company, Second Battalion, V.R.C., Dec.22, 1864, and was honorably discharged Aug. 8, 1865. Mr. Vibertparticipated in many engagements, among the important ones being thoseat Fort Pulaski, Ga.; James Island, S.C.; Poctataligo, S.C.; MorrtisIsland, S.C.; Fort Wagner, S.C.; Olustee, Fla.; Chester Station, Va.;Bermuda Hundred, Va.; and Drury's Bluff, Va. At the latterengagemenrt, May 16, 1864, a bullet struck his rifle and left hand,and burst, knocking him senseless. Thirteen pieces of lead enteredhis head and face, and eight were removed by Dr. George C. Jarvis, ofHartford, on the field. He also removed one Oct. 9, 1868, and fourremained, two of which have since come out. Mr. Vibert participatedin frequent expeditions along the Atlantic Coast, from Charleston,S.C., to St. Augusine, Fla., which divided his regiment for monthsinto small battalions, one of which, consisting of Companies A, B, I,and K, under command of Lieut.-Col. Daniel C. Rodman, led the chargeon Morris Islands, S.C., July 10, 1863, and at Fort Wagner, July 11,1863. The attack on Fort Wagner was made at night. The SeventhConnecticut gained and carried one front of the fort, but thesupporting regiments were unable to endure the heavy fire , and fellback in disorder before reaching the fort, leaving the SeventhBattalion entirely unsupported. Holding their positions more than anhour, nearly surrounded and out-numbered five to one, their onlyofficer, Lieut.-Col. Rodman, dangerously wounded, and noreinforcements being sent to their aid, they had to retreat two milesdown an open beach, under an enfilading fire of artillery andinfantry, without cover or support, losing 104 out of 191 officers andmen. The general commanding reported that the "Seventh Connecticuthas covered itself with glory." Our subject was one of theparticipants in this glory, and is one of the eleven survivors of hiscompany that fell back from the fort. On his return from the war helocated in East Hartford where he lived until 1892; then removed to Hazardville, where he has since resided.
On May 4, 1870, in Enfield, Mr. Vibert married Anna K., daughter ofCharles S. and Mary A. (Ripple) Scattergood, natives of Philadelphiaand she bore him two children: Helena, now Mrs Helena A. VibertPorter, who has one daughter, Hazel L.; and Rollo O., deceased. Mr.Vibert was an honorary member of Rodman Post, No. 65, G.A.R., of EastHartford, Conn., later receiving an honorable discharge on his removal to Hazardville, Conn. In politics he is a Republican.

Mary and Horace died within eight days of each other in 1830! They share a common tombstone, separately inscribed. WJB
Vibert, Timothy (I384)
186 Half-brothers and cousins Ralph and Louis are both with their maternal uncle Charles Schultz in 1910 - both are orphans. Fitch, Louis Charles (I13401)
187 Half-brothers and cousins Ralph and Louis are both with their maternal uncle Charles Schultz in 1910 and 1920 - both are orphans. Fitch, Ralph Louis (I13400)
188 Harry is living with his great aunt and uncle Mary A. (Vibbert) and William Fice in the 1930 census. Tompkins, Harry Sterling (I5564)
189 He appears in the 1860 census with Cornelius and Margaret, age 20, butlist below Margaret's daughter Harriet, age 12. So it isn't clear ifCornelius is his father or not. If he is Cornelius' son, then hismother is probably Amelia Vibbard since Cornelius did not marry Margaret until 1847. Losee, Cornelius (I10975)
190 He is listed as Thomas Clay Vibbert on the Find-a-Grave entry for Rosa Glass Vibbert but their gravestone only says "Clay" and "Rosie". Vibbert, Lemon Clay (I2119)
191 He is listed in the 1880 as Able Avery, father-in-law of George Lawton Sr., age 77, widowed. Kellogg, Abel Avery (I13261)
192 He is shown in the 1850 as age 49 but I don't see how that can becorrect since it would be 5 years before his parents' marriage and Ruth would only be about 16 - not impossible but unlikely. Harlow, Horatio P. (I3142)
193 He says he's married in 1930 but he's living alone (as a lodger) and I can't find Ethel anywhere. Vibbard, Earl Burrud (I3231)
194 Henry and Ella were married at "The Little Church Around the Corner", 1 East 29th Street, New YorkC Family F54
195 Henry was imprisoned at Andersonville and survived. Vibbert, Henry A. (I1667)
196 Her burial record in FAG names her as Margaret Crary DeLand but she was not married. Crary, Margaret V. (I14167)
197 Her burial record refers to her as Laura Elderidge Vibbert but thatname does not appear to be on the actual stone. Since the dates areright, I think the Elderidge (presumably Eldridge mispelled) was actually meant to be Emberton. Emberton, Laurinda Clayton (I2716)
198 Her death record (transcription) state that she is married but theinformation from Caral O'Hern says she never married and there doesn't seem to be any other evidence of a marriage. Varnum, Althea (I6867)
199 Her husband might be the Oscar Stoneberg who signed as informant, Heis in Snyder PA with his family in the 1920, age 26. They miust have married after 1920 because Ida is in the 1920 with George and Sylvina. Vibbert, Ida Frances (I3301)
200 Her maiden name is spelled many ways but there's no way to tell which is correct so I haven't bothered to list them all. Schultz, Mary (I13397)
