Chlorinda, who was called Chloe, was born in Baltimore in 1737. Her parents were James Standifer and Martha Watkins. She was probably baptised at St. John's parish on April 23 of that year, but the date could be her birth. About 1761, she married John VanBibber. John and Chloe were living in Botetourt County, Virginia as early as 1770. John built a cabin on the banks of Crooked Creek at the base of Fisher's Hill. The couple had seven children. The eldest, Chloe, married Jesse Boone, son of Danile Boone. Rhoda, the second, was killed by Indians at Point Pleasant. Next was James, who married Lois Reynolds and moved to Catlettsburg, Kentucky where he died. Miriam married John Reynolds, once the high sheriff of Kanawha County. Hannah married Goodrich Slaughter of Culpepper County, moved with him to Missouri in 1827 and died in Palmyra in 1832. Margery married Colonel Andrew Donnally Jr. All these children were born in Botetourt County. Later, the family moved to Point Pleasant in Greenbrier County.

Around 1789, John and Chloe moved to Charleston and the new county of Kanawha was formed in Virginia. John died in Charleston on March 17, 1820. His estate was appraised on November 12, 1821. The estate was divided between his living children, Col. Andrew Donnally, husband of Marjory VanBibber, James VanBibber, Hannah VanBibber Slaughter, representatives of Chloe VanBibber Boone and Miriam VanBibber Reynolds. John's wife Chloe must have died before him, probably in Charleston, because she didn't share in the estate. The location of Chloe's grave is unknown, but probably near Charleston, which is now in West Virginia.
