    Notes 
    • James Vibbert Jr. was probably born around 1744 although it could havebeen earlier. My working hypothesis is that he was the oldest son ofJames and Dorcas (Dix) Vibert. However, there is some room for thetheory that he was the son of James Sr.'s brother John Vibbard and hiswife Mary Arnold. James Jr. apparently married around 1765 and his first son, George was baptized in East Hartford on 12 October 1766.

      James'’ wife Mary has not yet been identified but the couple had atleast six children between 1766 and 1776. These children were allchristened at the First Church, East Hartford. Then starting about1784, three additional children were probably born to James, althoughit is not clear if their mother was also Mary or if she had died andJames remarried. There are no birth or christening records for thesethree children but they seem to fit better into James’ 1790 family than those of the other Vibs in the area.

      Based on the census records and on the fact that he was a signer of a1772 petition to create a new church for that area of what was thenall Hartford, James probably lived in the Orford Parish section ofEast Hartford (later Manchester). Perhaps that explains the lack ofrecords since– the early Manchester church records are not very complete and sometime muddled.

      James appears in the 1790-1820 censuses and apparently died in 1820just after that census was taken. The note in the First Church,Manchester records does not provide a month or day. There is norecord of his wife's date of death but she seems to have died between 1810 and 1820.

      Earl has a DOB of 1752 but so far I don't have a source. He has JamesJr. married to Rebecca Abbe too but the 1752 date isn't right for James III either.

      His father James was baptized on 10 Feb 1744 so I am assuming heeither was getting married then or getting ready for the baptism of his son.

      James was baptized on 10 Feb 1744 as an adult by Samuel Woodbridge.This was probably either in preparation for his marriage or for the baptism of his first child.

      I have based the marriage location on the fact that he was baptized by Rev. Woodbridge.

      They owned the covenant as man and wife on 10/5/1766 and their son George was baptised on 10/12/1766.
