Fridaiy August 21, 1925
Orrin Sibley, whose sudden demise from apoplexy occurred at Belmar, N.J., on the morning of the 27th, was born in Ripon, Wis., December 28,1858. He was the younger son of Jared and Mary Ann (Teachout) Sibley, his brother being Charles, who passed away two years ago on the farm he occupied in Platt Hollow near the town of Maryland. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Elbert Coats, who resides with her husband on Long Island.
Mr. Sibley spent the greater part of his life on the hill farm in the township of Middlefield, about midway between Westville and Cooperstown, which was the home of his grandfather, Orrin Sibley, who cleared and developed it from the virgin forest and was widely known in his day for his successful achievements in conducting a tannery, agricultural pursuits and lumbering there.
The subject of this sketch subsequently kept store in Toddsville for a while, then resided off and on in Plainfield N.J., where he worked for the Union News Company, at a stand on the Central Railroad of New Jersey. He was was thus engaged when stricken.
He was a well-read man with broad, generous views of life, who wanted to live and let live; Of an exceedingly sunny disposition, he always made friends wherever he went. He was a member of F.and A.M.of the Anchor Lodge at Plainfield, by which order he was held in high esteem.
He is survived by his wife, who was Miss. Carrie Campbell of Westville, and one daughter, Mrs. Harold Roberts, of 190 Hillside Ave., Mt. Vernon, N.Y. and perhaps nothing exemplifies more beautifully his character than the strong devotion that existed between him and his familv. No matter how much sympathy is expressed for a widow: like that, her grief is too poignant for any to feel except those who have realized it, and real consolation for such can only come from God.
