years of her life she lived in Tinmouth, Shoreham, East Poultney, and
Hampton , coming to Orwell in January, 1873 when she was united in
marriage to Henry G.Hibbard of this town. When but a young woman she
united with the Baptist church of East Poultney and later joined the
Congregational church of Orwell of which she remained a sincere and
devoted member.

Mrs. Hibbard was a woman of rare good character, always doing her duty
as she saw it, gentle and patient, with a ready sympathy and a cheery

"None knew her but to love her,
None named her but to praise."

For the last three years she has been in Poultney caring for her aged
mother and there after a brief illness, which until the last, was not
considered serious, she died on the evening of Tuesday, October 19, at
the home of her brother, Malden Ray. Funeral services were held in
Poultney, Thursday evening. The burial was in Mountain View cemetery in
Orwell on Friday. Besides her brother, Malden Ray, she leaves one
sister, Mrs. Katherine Clark of Middletown Springs.
