Tibbits/Reilly Family History

Tibbets/Tibbetts and other variations

Updated 06/06/2010

Source: "The Tibbits (Tibbitts), Reilly, Bettinger, & McCarthy Family Tree Book 1784 to 1994" by Mary Heindel Reilly

Correspondence between Mary Heindel Reilly and Michael Robert Reilly concerning Tibbits family history:

I looked at the website and printed it. 

First questions that came to my mind were:

1.   What’s the documentation that George Dennis was adopted by Benjamin and Nancy?  Oral history?  Family records? Civil records?

2.   Could George Dennis be the nephew of Nancy Williams?  Perhaps it is her brother’s child?  That would support that his father was a Williams.  (Somewhere in my stuff I have data about the Williams family in Saginaw in those days.  I remember trying to create a family of the Williams that appeared in “The History of Saginaw County” – which I copied many, many pages.  I don’t think that I put it in the book.)

1.   What’s the documentation that George Dennis was adopted by Benjamin and Nancy?  Oral history?  Family records? Civil records?

In your 1994 book you talk about how a Mr. and Mrs. Tibbits adopted him after being left on their doorstep. Also that a Mr. Williams, from Saginaw, Michigan, may have been his biological father. Well we have now identified a very possible Benjamin and Nancy Tibbits who have adopted George Dennis; from the information I have so far, they adopted Equity Evangaline Monroe around 1860, and it appears that they (the Tibbits) lived in Canada at that time, moving to Michigan days later, perhaps. They later picked up the Strong brothers, and according to the 1880 Census, he was listed as their son, but with the Strong name. So the Tibbits have a history of "adopting", formally or otherwise. From what I've read, Eva's was a formal one that the laws of Canada couldn't break when her natural mother wanted her back (in Canada). I'm hoping to find out from the Whipple's if they have documentation that indicates where in Canada Eva's parents lived; this would give us a very good clue as to where the Tibbits also lived.

George Dennis named his first born son after Benjamin Tibbits (again, it seems so). I wish I had some Canadian Census information from the 1846 to 1861 time period, when Ben and Nancy married to when they moved to Michigan. The only Civil Record I have is the 1870 Census showing George (and Louisa after being married and living alone ? for a while) living with the family in the Town of Thomas, Saginaw, Michigan

2.   Could George Dennis be the nephew of Nancy Williams?  Perhaps it is her brother’s child?  That would support that his father was a Williams.  (Somewhere in my stuff I have data about the Williams family in Saginaw in those days.  I remember trying to create a family of the Williams that appeared in “The History of Saginaw County” – which I copied many, many pages.  I don’t think that I put it in the book.)

I suppose it's possible that George Dennis could have been related to Nancy Williams in some way, but the Williams you discuss in the book lived in Michigan, the 1870 Census says she was born in Canada. Still she could be related? Ephraim Williams (and his brother Benjamin) were in Michigan already in 1829 according to your notes. Nancy was born in 1826, so it's possible, she could be a niece, depending on where the brothers came from before Michigan.

The descendant listing below was created by Michael R. Reilly using Family Tree Maker Genealogy Software - See bottom of page for contact instructions regarding updating/corrections. From information recently found, provided by Patricia Whipple, a new picture of George Dennis Tibbits life has come into being.

Descendants of Benjamin Tibbetts

Generation No. 1

 

1. BENJAMIN1 TIBBETTS (Source: 1870 Federal Census, Thomas, Saginaw Co., Michigan.) was born July 06, 1812 in New York (Source: 1870 Federal Census, age 57 and Patricia Whipple giving date as July 6, 1812. (Source ?).), and died September 25, 1885 in South East Missouri, USA. He married NANCY A. WILLIAMS (Source: 1870 Federal Census, Listed as Nancy a., age 43, born 1826 in Canada. The surname Williams comes a an Ancestry.com family trees file "Dillard, Goodin, Smith, Whipple, Reiger, Bell, Tipton - all over the joint" - Contact person is Patricia Whipple.) February 25, 1846, daughter of ? WILLIAMS and CATHERINE ?. She was born September 25, 1826 in Canada (Source: Patricia Whipple.), and died 1896 in Garber, Ok., USA (Source: Patricia Whipple.).

Notes for BENJAMIN TIBBETTS:

After Benjamin and Nancy were married on 1846, did they find after several years they couldn't have their own natural children? Was it then, when opportunity arose, and George Dennis was left on their doorstep, that the couple decided to end their childless years and adopt?

George Dennis's baptismal and marriage record indicate he was the illegitimate son of Sarah (Bodman/Battman) Badman or Bademan, no father listed.

The fact they later adopted Equity Evangaline Monroe around 1860 would seem they had approved of adoption.

But who was Louisa, their 2nd child listed in the 1870 Census? And the Strong brothers even later, though they never appear to have assumed the Tibbetts' surname, one census does list Hector as their son, though he retained the Strong surname.

At least we know now that there was a Benjamin Tibbetts, not Benjamin Williams, and his was married to Nancy Ann Williams, whether Nancy was related to the Ephraim S. or Benjamin Williams brothers of Saginaw, Michigan is unknown.

Besides finding that George and Louisa are living with Benjamin and Nancy Tibbetts in the Town of Thomas, Saginaw, Michigan, dated July 19, 1870, they're also listed as :

The 1870 Federal Census for Saginaw City Ward 1, Michigan, dated June 28, 1870, lists a Georg Tibits, age 20, born 1849 in Canada and a Louisa Tibits, age 16, born New York in 1853 as living together? But census image on Ancestry.com appears as "Missing Image". Found the image in Genealogy.com, he working as a laborer, and she is "keeping house".

Another interesting item - next door [to Georg Tibits] is the William Tibbits family; William is 37, laborer, born New York; wife Mary T., age 32, born in Illinois; Frank, age 13, b. Iowa; George, age 11, b. 1856 in Iowa; Mathilda, age 9, b. 1860 in Illinois; Willie, age 7, b. 1862 in Illinois, and Arthur, age 4, b. 1865 in Illinois. Could William be a brother or of Benjamin?

Perhaps the reason why we can't find Benjamin and Nancy Tibbetts/Tibbits in the 1860 Federal Census is because they were living in Canada at the time with George Dennis. EQUITY EVANGALINE MONROE TIBBETTS, being born later in the 1860 Census year on September 27, 1860 would support this. If the family then moved to Michigan after Evangaline was several days old, they most certainly were missed by the Census Taker.

The reason George Dennis and Louisa Tibbits were listed as living together on June 28, 1870 in Saginaw City's Ward 1, was because they were married the year before on November 15, 1869 in St. Andrews Church, Saginaw City, MI. Soon after, they moved to live with Benjamin and Nancy out on the farm in the Town of Thomas, that's why they're listed twice in the 1860 Census. The fact they lived with Benjamin and Nancy doesn't mean they were his adoptive parents, but there is a lot of circumstantial evidence to support it.

Louisa was never adopted by the Tibbetts, she was their daughter-in-law. But what about her parents, John and Natalie Boisclair? So far they haven't been found in the 1860 Census for Michigan, but they probably arrived there between 1861 and early 1869.

Questions: Were Benjamin and Nancy married in Canada in 1846? If so, where did the marriage take place?

Where did they live until until approx September 1860 when they adopted Evangaline?

Where in New York was Benjamin born? His father? Siblings?

Is the William Tibbits listed above a son [not a brother], born approx 1833, of Benjamin's from an earlier marriage? Benjamin would have been about 21 years of age at William's birth. But no Benjamin is listed in the 1840 Census and William is born in New York state. If he is a son, could Benjamin have moved to Canada with his original family, his wife dying before 1846, then he remarried. Any children from a prior marriage having moved away or died?

Notes for EQUITY EVANGALINE MONROE TIBBETTS:

Alias: Eva /Tibbets/

Eva's real father was full blooded English and her mother full French.

Her name was Fedoria Equity.

From a letter by Aunt Myrtle Burns, September, 1963

"Mamma's father was full-blooded English [surname Monroe?] and her mother full-blooded French and their name was Equity [her mother's maiden name?], but her adopted parents' name was Tibbetts. They adopted Mamma when she was a few days old and took her to Michigan but she says she was born in Canada, anyway that was what she was told. She didn't tell many here she was born in Canada because she didn't know how she was brought over here. Her mother married against her parents' wishes - they eloped and her father never forgave her for marrying an Englishman. In those days the French and English were very bitter towards each other. Her mother wasn't quite so bitter and kept in touch with her unbeknownst to her father. He was in some kind of business that took him away from home for several weeks at a time so when Mamma's parents had family troubles and finally separated, and she was going to have Mamma, so her mother had her come home during a time when her father was away and she had Mamma there while he was gone and he never knew that Mamma's mother had a granddaughter in his house, but Mamma's mother talked her into letting these Tibbets that she knew wanted a baby adopt Mamma, so she did and they adopted her and took her to Michigan when she was just a few days old. Then the sad part of the story is that her Mamma's mother and father went back together when Mamma was a few month's old and they tried to get the Tibbets to give Mamma back to them but of course they wouldn't.

Now, where the royalty of the family comes in. Mamma's father's sister, Mamma's aunt, married an English nobleman. I don't know just what, but she spent a fortune trying to get Mamma by law and what a shame she couldn't. Mamma said Tibbets were good to her but oh what a difference her life would have been could she have been brought up by her own people. They were all wealthy, her grandparents on both sides. Mamma never knew until she was nine years old that she was an adopted child and she found out at school. So then Grandma Tibbets told her the whole story and that is the way Mamma told it to me. She said if she could write, she could write a book about her life.'

Note: In your line you have George Tibbits b. 4 March 1850 and BP. Sept. 12, 1869 in Saginaw with Edwardus German as sponsor.
