El1zabeth", born April 15, 1783, in Lyme. She went to school in Brookfield, Vt., in the little log schoolhouse, which was afterwards burned. When young, it was supposed that she would die of consumption, but she became well and strong, being tall and weighing, at the time of her marriage, one hundred and sixty. She had deep blue eyes, dark brown hair, full forehead, and was fair. She was a beautiful singer. She married, after an engagement of seven years, Gurdon Hibbard, brother of her sister Abigail's husband, Dec. 25, 1808, in Brookfield. He was born in Lebanon, N. H., July 12, 1782. By constant labor as a carpenter, his health was injuriously affected; and his physician pronounced him a hopeless consumptive. He took a journey to Saratoga Springs, N. Y., against the wishes of his family; but there his racking cough and violent night sweats disappeared. After his recovery, he bought fifty acres of land near her father's house, built a barn, and set out an orchard. He then married; and lived in a part of her father's house until he could build a house. Her_ furniture consisted of two tables, two chests of drawers, six kitchen chairs, rocking chair, two bedsteads, large wheel, linen wheel, quill wheel, reel and swifts, made by her father, a looking glass and some necessary crockery. She had devoted some years to sewing, being a fine needlewoman, and making men's clothing. This was a lucrative employment for young women at that time. She was thus able to furnish beds with bedding, sheets and pillow cases, as well as beautiful table cloths and towels of her own handiwork. Her weddining cloak was very long and of scarlet broadcloth, being trimmed with silk velvet ribbon, nearly three inches wide. Her bonnet was of black velvet, with very little trimming. By economy, they were enabled to add to their farm from time to time until it contained between two and three hundred acres, and to build two additional barns and a convenient farmhouse. Mr. Hibbard introduced the first Spanish merinoes into the town, having bought a pair of lambs, for one hundred dollars, of the consul from the United States to Spain. Two spinners were hired two or three months in the summer, and, some years as many as two hundred pounds of wool were manufactured into cloth, Mrs. Hibbard doing the weaving; the cloth, when dressed, compared favorably with imported broadcloth, and brought from a dollar and a half to two dollars a yard. These spinners worked in the room where she and her little daughter performed the household work; and while the work went on beautiful hymns were sung. As the girls grew to womanhood, they took the place of the hired laborers. Mrs. Hibbard, after one day's sickness, folded her tired hands, gently closed her eyes, and slept the eternal sleep. This was in Brookfield March 6, 1864, at the age of eighty. Her husband survived her, and was unconsoled in his loss of her companionship. He died in Brookfield Sept. 27. 1871, at the age of eighty-nine. Their children were born in Brookfield, as follows: 1.
