    Notes 
    • There are many references on the web to a marriage of James Vibbert(various spellings) to either Dorcas Dix or to Mary Kennedy whichsupposedly took place on 17 Nov 1747. However, those referencesappear have confused James, the son of John Vibert and Mary Neell (andhusband of Dorcas Dix), with James Monroe Vibbert who married MaryKennedy on 17 Nov 1847. I have found no evidence of an exact date for the marriage of this James to Dorcas Dix.

      Apparently James and Dorcas were married after 10 Aug 1737 because shewas referred to by her maiden name in her father's will signed on thatdate. We also know that they were married before July, 1748 whenDorcas was referred to in the will of her uncle, Alexander Keeney, by her married name.

      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.
