I could not locate an obituary for Harry Sibley. Following is a transcript of an obituary from the Vallejo Times-Herald, dated Apr. 29, 1996:

"Ralph Sibley
(Oct. 13, 1929-April 26, 1996)

VALLEJO -- Ralph L. Sibley, 66, died Fri-
day at home after a brief illness. A native
Vallejoan, Mr. Sibley was employed for 38
years at Vallejo Sheetmetal, retiring in 1986.

Mr. Sibley served with the U.S. Marine
Corps during the Korean conflict and held the
rank of sergeant.

He was a member of Vallejo Lodge No.
559, BPOE and enjoyed hunting and fishing.
He was also an artistic wood carver, special-
izing in birds and animals, and collecting duck
decoys.

Mr. Sibley is survived by his wife, Car-
men; daughter, Renee Hensley; two sons,
Robert C. of Vallejo and Ralph I. of Green
Valley; and nine grandchildren.

No services will be held. Inurnment will be
private with arrangements under the direc-
tion of Wiggins-Knipp Funeral Home.

Memorial contributions should be made to
the donor's favorite charity."

The obituary for Robert Sibley (Oct. 11, 1927-June 27, 1995) does not list any descendants, so I'm not transcribing it here.
