From "A Biographical History of Pottawattamie County, Iowa"; 1891. By the Lewis Publishing Company.

A. C. Bisbee is one of the intelligent and enterprising citizens of Grove township, Pottawattamie County. He was born and reared on the farm where he now lives, the date of his birth being February 8, 1867.
He is a son of Franklin Elijah and Hannah (Winsor)Bisbee. His father came to this county in an early day and spent the remainder of his life here, his death occurring November 28, 1880, at about the age of 56 years.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, had served as a steward of the same, and was regarded by all who knew him as a man of integrity and a true Christian. Mr. Bisbee has been twice married, and had five children: Frank, the only child by his first wife, now resides in the West; Louis H., died at the age of twenty-five years at Macedonia, Iowa; Fanny Florence, wife of H. T. Thomas, of Red Oak, Iowa; A. C., the subject of this sketch; and Charles A. who lives with his mother at Macedonia. March 14, 1889, he was married to Miss Mary Chillana Rolfe, a lady of culture and education and a successful and popular teacher of the county.
She was born in Webster County Iowa, and received her education there and at the Western Normal College at
Shenandoah. Her parents, Aaron and Emily (Beem) Rolfe, are now residents of Lehigh, Iowa. Her father was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and was reared in New York. Her mother, a native of Indiana, came with her parents to Webster County, Iowa, when she was eight years old. Mr. and Mrs. Bisbee have a daughter, born August 2, 1890, named Hattie Florence. Mrs. Bisbee is a member of the Christian Church.
Our subject is engaged in agricultural pursuits on the old home farm, which contains 200 acres, and which
is well improved. Socially and financially he is regarded as a representative citizen. In politics he is a Republican.
