REV. WH. T. BIBB

BIOGRAPHY and GENEALOGY

(1853 – aft. 1903)

Montgomery County, Alabama

Rev. Wh. T. Bibb, son of Linzy and Caroline Bibb, was born in Montgomery, Ala., in 1853.


Rev. W. T. Bibb, A. B., Pastor Baptist Church, Oxmoor, Alabama (

The Cyclopedia of the Colored Baptists of Alabama – Their Leaders and Their Work copyright 1896)

Noted for brilliance

Brother Bibb is one of the most worthy of our rising young men. He is not noted for brilliancy, but for constant application in the race for knowledge, for pushing things to a finish in search for truth, for the purest life and loftiest piety, he is hard to be excelled. Already he has been entrusted with various pastorates, including one at Marion and another near Birmingham.

I had the best opportunity to learn him while I was pastor at Selma. Here he was superintendent of my Sunday School and aided me in my ward prayer-meetings. He completed two courses at the Selma University, graduating with the title of A. B., and with the highest confidence of all the faculty.

In looking upon his open countenance one instinctively feels the impress of an honest, earnest man—a man free from hypocrisy and guile.

      READER REVIEW
      Donna shares how she “got bitten” by the genealogy bug. She imparts her amazement at how much can be learned about the history of this country as well as one’s own family by researching one’s family tree. And what’s more amazing is that she was able to go back with her family to the 1600s in England, over 400 years.
      The author has a website where she is asked many “how to” questions by the participants. She advises one to use a computer for their research and seems to describe the use of genealogy software as an easy task and quite intuitive. She identifies many excellent genealogy websites for the new user, some of which I hadn’t known about despite my history of 20 years of searching for my family tree, much of it on the internet. The author provides sample interview questions for eliciting past stories from family elders. She gives quite a few tips on how to organize your materials to make the best use of your time. She includes everything a “newby” to the genealogy research field will need to get started and more. And for those with more experience, she includes tips on how to break down the “brick walls” that researchers inevitably encounter and she advises readers to challenge the assumptions in family lore and stories when the brick wall is hit. She also identifies many of the pitfalls inherent in requested records. And if you’ve ever gone to a courthouse to search without preparing yourself for the kinds of questions you’ll need to ask, you will appreciate the author’s advice about getting ready first. You’ll save yourself time in the long run.
