    Notes 
    • Eliphalet was born to Jesse and Martha (Abbey) Vibbert in 1789. Hemarried and had his first child shortly before the 1810 census.Sometime between the 1810 and 1820 censuses, he moved his family toMadison County, New York where his aunt and uncle, Stephen and Dorcas(Vibbert) Risley (and perhaps his uncle Eligah as well) had settled earlier.

      By the 1820, they had four children and two more were born in 1821 and1830 or 1831. His wife died around 1840 and he soon remarried. Hissecond wife was Betsey Burghoff, born in Westchester County. They had one more child, a daughter named Sarah Josephine, in 1844.

      The other children have been identified, with the exception of theoldest daughter. They are Stephen Vibbert (who married and eventuallymoved to Michigan) and Edwin Vibbert, who married a woman named Lovinabefore the 1840 census and had at least one daughter, Alvira. He andhis daughter both died before the census date. Also Ira Vibbert whoalso married but only had one son who died without issue and Mary A,Vibbert who married John Wright and had many descendants. The lasttwo daughters, Harriet M. and Sarah J., may also have married but have not been traced yet.

      Eliphalet and his second wife Betsey, who died in 1872 and 1875respectively, are buried in the Welsh Church Cemetery in Nelson,Madison County. He has descendants through at least their son Stephenand daughter Mary A. Wright and there may be others descendants through his other three daughters as well.

    2. [S4166] Eliphalet Vibbert Family Births and Deaths.
      Handwritten list of births and deaths for the family of EliphaletVibbert. This list was provided by Charles Catchpole Sr., adescendant of Eliphalet's daughter Mary A. (Vibbert) Wright, and mayhave been written by Mary's daughter Elizabeth (Wright) Bonney. I've included Charles' comments below:

      Now, as far as who wrote it, all I can do is to tell you what I doknow and we can go from there. Elizabeth Wright daughter of Mary A.Vibbert married Albert Bonney, they were Irma bonney's parents, mygrandfathers sister. I knew Irma quite well mostly thru visitationsand input from my mother and my Aunt who knew her very well. Irma wasthe only daughter of that family. I mention that because----When heronly child died I quickly thought if any one in that family had familystuff it would have been Irma passed down to her daughter Helen. I wasinvolved some what in that estate and as a result found the Bonneystuff. In all that stuff I found NO communication with the Vibbertfamily so I assume this document was not written by a Vibbert. Plus,it does include the date of death of Mary Vibbert in the same handwriting, so she did not write it. Plus, it is not in Irma'shandwriting so my conclusion is that Elizabeth wrote it especiallybeing a most interested party. I'm not aware that I have anythingthat Elizabeth wrote to check the hand writing but I very well may have - I'll keep that in mind while looking thru STUFF !!

      AE 83. This matches to a birth date of 9/16/1789 pretty weel although he wouldn't have been 83 until September.

      She is listed as "45 and over" but her youngest chil Ruth was born in 1806 so she can't be much over 45. I've opted for the minimum.
