He is the subject of the book "Charles C. Stibbens, Soldier of the Battle of San Jacinto, Citizen of the Republic of Texas".

Marker transcription: "A native of Maryland, Charles C. Stibbens came to Texas about 1835. He served in the army during the Texas Revolution, participating in the Battle of San Jacinto. He settled in Anderson County soon after the war and worked as a farmer and shoemaker. Following the death of his first wife, Julie Ann Frost Slaughter, he was married in 1849 to Elizabeth Creekman. They eventually were the parents of eleven children. Charles and Elizabeth Stibbens moved to Saint Paul in 1870."
