2. Gordin Hibbard / as shown on headstone you include
3. Gurdon Hibbard / "A Genealogy of Benjamin Cleveland...," page 148, by Horace Gillette Cleveland, Chicago, 1879

Colonel Henry R. Sibley
Great research on the colonel; I own his inscribed sword! One piece to add to his bio is that at the Battle of Antietam, according to the regimental history, he had "a narrow escape from death." I've never been able to learn what this stroke of good luck was. Someday I hope to uncover it. Keep up the fine work, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you uncover more information about Henry Robinson Sibley. Best wishes, Scott

Robert Loveland #105818848
I was delighted to find an old photo (ambrotype?) of this ancestor on findagrave that I have not seen on other sites, (until I just saw it on wikitree.) We are descendants of his dau. Phylinda, grand-dau. Mary Jane Wheeler & Levi Wright. Do you know the origin of the photo? Do you know it is actually Rbt Loveland of Pittsford?

Are you the same DP who is profile manager for Rbt Loveland on wikitree? I notice that his parents are shown as usual on findagrave, but that the wiki site indicates his parents are not known and seeks DNA info. Has there been DNA testing that questions the conventional wisdom for this family? (I use the work published by JB and George Loveland when other sources fail.) We are not Y-dna or matrilineal to this couple, but we have done the autosomal testing, which resulted in cousins with Lovelands in their backgrounds.

Ruth Carriel Read / Mary Towne Estey

I'm a descendant of Ruth Carriel Read and very much appreciated reading your biography at

I'm wondering if you have the exact line back to Mary Towne Estey? If it's not too much trouble to share, I'd love to see it.

Allen Dalrymple grave
I see you are the one for the Allen Leland Dalrymple grave.

One of his children is missing: My grandmother, Jane Dalrymple, 1887-1972.

LaVerne G. Smith photo
You asked about the memorial for LaVerne G. Smith at Dry Creek Cemetery. The photo for LaVerne G. Smith was uploaded by another member, Amanda Fox. If you click on the photo it opens in another space and there is a description and source of the photo.

This is a photograph I took today of a W.F. & John Barnes Screw Cutting Lathe. It is on display at Dury's Gun Shop, 819 Hot Wells - San Antonio, TX 78223

When I got home, I researched the man that made the lathe, and found your biographies on Find A Grave. I added them to WikiTree and acknowledged your authorship. I found them very interesting. Thank you.
