I have transferred this memorial over to you, as I figured you must be a relative. You have Eldorado buried in another cemetery.. you might want to delete that one. Tracey
Be glad to transfer but please send it to me as an edit on the memorial.
|Brittany Wykle||Martin Bibb Obit|
Martin Bibb was born in Amherst County, Virginia, on August 19, 1824. In 1829 his father, with his family, located on what is now Sewell Depot, West Virginia, on the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. Having no formal schooling, he became a self-taught man, teaching himself Latin and Greek. He worked his farm during the day and studied by light of a pine torch at night.
He united with the church when he was twenty years old and soon began to speak in prayer meetings and was the superintendent of a Sunday School. He was locensed to preach in 1849. He acted as a colporteur for the American Tract Society until 1852. In that year Bibb was ordained to the gospel ministry and began to pastor in Fayette, Nicholas, and Kanawha Counties until 1861.
The General Association sent out sixty-one missionaries across Virginia. Twenty-one of those were in the western part of the state. Of those twenty-one, the name of Martin Bibb, along with others, occurs frequently in the writings of this Association in the late 1850's and early 1860's.
When the Civil War started in 1861, Martin Bibb moved to Giles County, Virginia. When the war was over in 1865, he moved his family back to West Virginia, where he resumed his work on the farm and among the churches. But after a brief period of time, he moved to Monroe County, where he lived for about five years and then became pastor of the First Baptist Church in Hinton. During his ministry he saw about a thousand people baptized. He served for a number of years as clerk for the Association. He died January 11, 1893 and is buried in the Bibb family cemetery near Gatewood, Fayette County, West Virginia.

Yes, I will transfer your Uncle Russell Allenbaugh to you. I need your contributor number. I am also sending you a link to the death certificate of Millard.
West Virginia has many death and marriage records online (1967 and earlier) and birth records (1912 and before). I did not know if you knew about this.
There are death and birth records for your Uncle Russell and death record for Mary Frances Bragg Allenbaugh. The website is
