    Notes 
    • Elisha Vibbert, apparently the second son of James and Dorcas (Dix)Vibert, was born around 1751, according to the information from hisburial record, even though he wasn't baptized until 17 Jul 1763. Likehis brothers David, Jesse and John, he served in the Revolutionary Waralthough in his case, the service was more limited. He served as aCorporal in Col. J. Wells' Regiment of Connecticut Militia, Capt.Cone's Company. The service record indicates he was paid for 67 daysservice at New London between 23 Aug and 26 Oct 1779. Like his olderbrother James, he was apparently already married and a father by thistime - his first child was baptized in January 1777 and his second in June 1779.

      His birth and death dates are both established by his gravestoneinscription preserved in a list of burials of Revolutionary Warpatriots in Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. He died 08 Aug 1798,age 47, and was buried in the Waverly Avenue Cemetery, Patchogue, LI, New York. A picture of his gravestone is available on FindAGrave.com

      Before his death he was a merchant of some sort in Hartford. He seemsto have moved to Hartford sometime after the baptism of his sonWilliam in the church in East Hartford on 04 Jul 1784. He appears inHartford in the 1790 census with a family of 4 males (1 over 15(presumably Elisha himself) and 5 females. He engaged in several realestate transactions, all in Hartford, the earliest dated 21 Mar 1789 and the last 18 Jul 1797.

      The name of his wife is problematic. Jacobus and others have statedthat his wife was Hannah Northrup, a daughter of Aaron and Rebecca(Hyatt) Northrup, but several records created after Elisha's deathseem to point toward a woman named Mary (--?--) as his wife. Whateverher name, she and Elisha married sometime before 05 Jan 1777 andproduced a family of at least ten children, six of whom survived to adulthood.

      "son of James of East Hartford"

      I think that the gravestone reads "47 yrs"

    3. [S1112] Families of Early Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut, Lucius Barnes Barbour, page 614.
      Elisha was baptised on 7/17/1763, along with his brother David andsister Ruth, so, although Barbour gives it as his birthdate, he was probably born earlier. Also, he has children born as early as 1777.

      Mentioned as Elisha Vibbert, deceased in a land transaction dated 15Feb 1805 whereby Samuel Kilbourn grants a life lease on propertyformerly owned by Elisha to Mary Vibbard of Hartford, widow (doesn't specify whose widow though).

    8. [S2066] Private Records of Samuel Woodbridge, First Church, EH.
      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.

    9. [S694] CSL Church Records Index.
      This is based on the asumed birth date of her oldest child, Nancy, who was baptized on 05 Jan 1777.
