In my book, Doreen Hanna Potter's KIBBE Genealogy book, I have:
Nelson KIBBE was born circa 1844, probably in Illinois. He enlisted in the Civil War at Versailles, Brown County, Illinois, August 20, 1864, in Co H, 137th Regiment of Illinois Volunteers. Soon after enlistment he was taken prisoner at Memphis, Tennessee, by General Forrest's Command, and confined in Dallas County, Alabama. In prison, he contracted a chronic diarrhea from which he never completely recovered. He was honorably discharged from the army June 17, 1865. Nelson was married to Susan Evaline Hunt, the daughter of Daniel and Mary (Woodson) Hunt. This couple made their home in Lawrence County, Missouri, near Mt. Vernon. In 1875 Nelson set off for California, but died en route on May 11 and was buried at Winnemucca, Nevada.
Children of Nelson Kibbe and Susan Evaline (Hunt) Kibbe:
Milo Edwin 1870 - 1950, m. 1894, Merty Simpson
As a side note: Nelson's parents were in NY and moved to Illnois about 1844. Nelson is also listed as the Ninth generation in my book. If you are interested in purchasing the book, contact Scott Prentice. I believe he has a post further down with all the pertinet information. He may have some books left.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more info.
