West Coast Hibbards / Huberts

Post by dhibbard56 »

Hi, I am the 13th descendant from Robert Heberd/Hibbard and living in California. Our more immediate descendant Jacob Hiller Hibbard born 1837 in or around Flint Michigan, married Sarah LightHall in 1874 at Saginaw. They then proceeded to migrate west to Marysville CA and bought land, worked as a farmer, and operating in a transportation company supposedly due to his experience as a mule teamster. His wife SARAH, died later in the 1890's. Jacob and some family members relocated to Coos Bay Oregon. He then operated a transportation route between the Coos and Umqua River region for a while. Jacob eventually died in Nov 6, 1919 in Tulare County California,possibly in Visalia.

Anyway his son John Bert Hibbard married Abitha Buela Chamberlain in 1895 at Coos Bay. My grandfather Addison Bert Hibbard was born in 1900.Other siblings are Frank, Bessie,Doris, Ethyl,Charles lyle and I think another. G Uncle Frank and Aunt Thursa were farmers near Nipomo CA. Most of the cousins I have met are from this area.Other cousins are children of Charlses Lyle Hibbard and Lucille Johnston.

My grandfather Addison Bert married twice to a Cecil ? and later to a Jessie Eva Rooker/Cheatham. "Uncle Bert & Jessie" to some.

Eventually my father Richard Deane Hibbard b 1931 Santa Maria, moved to San Diego. (I think it was because of a family memeber owning a donut shop and needing help). I was born there in 1956.

So where is all this going? I have also been unable to obtain any information and research concerning our Rev. Henry Hibert/Hibbard of Wiltshire UK (Salisbury or St. Edmunds parish) prior to 1547. Any direct leads wil be helpful.

Cousins, the 7th Hibbard reunion will be held at Santa Maria CA area in Summer 2005, so plan ahead we need to see you and hear your stories! (phunny56@yahoo.com).
