  • Notes 
    • Joseph A. Gibbs owned the farm on North Rd. (aka Chester Rd.) which in later years was known as the Loring farm. A big fire destroyed the house and barn. Rather than rebuilding, Joseph abandoned the farm and in -October 1863 he purchased the farm across the road from Henry S. Burdick. It had 140 acres and a large house built ca 1792. They had three children when they moved: Mari, 4; Hattie, 2; and Frank, 8 mos. William was born in 1864 & Ella in 1866. Hannah was expecting Joseph Jr. when Joseph Sr. caught pneumonia and died in Feb. 1873. Fortunately, he had built the barn before this time.

      The widow, Hannah A. (Fish) was a strong and very capable woman. She had taught school in Westhampton before her marriage and was known for her strict discipline and thoroughness in her work. It was said that she kept a whip behind George Washington's picture in her classroom. She kept the farm up with the help of her son Frank, paid off the mortgage, and even bought more acreage. Her widowed mother, Mercy (Lyman) Fish came to live with them. To supplement her income, Hannah became a practical nurse and took care of others when they were ill or had babies.

      About 1875/1876 Dexter H. Loring purchased the old farm which Joseph had left; it was said that he bought it for the price of the back taxes. While the Lorings' house was being built, they stayed with Hannah Gibbs. They had two children, George, 3 and a baby, May, who remained a friend of the Gibbs' thru the generations until her death in 1962. Dexter Loring & his wife Ellen (Watson) were not only 3rd cousins of each other but also 3rd cousins of the children of Joseph A. Gibbs.
