Eleventh Generation


439. Susan B. POINDEXTER240 was born in 1829 in Kentucky.238

First Baptist Church, Russellville. Baptized 25 Oct 1841.

Listed in the 1850 Census with John and Elizabeth but birth date would place her as a daughter of Susan.
1850 Census: Todd Co, KY, Household 552
John Poindexter, 55, b. KY. Elizabeth 37, b. KY
Susan 21. Marion W. 9 [female]. Marinda B. age 7.

Susan is said to have married Henry Bibb and had three children.

In 1850, Todd Co, Henry appeared to be living in the same household as his parents and several siblings.

Henry, age 40, lawyer, b. VA
Susan, age 30, b. VA
Mary, 23, b. VA
John, 24, b. VA
George, 22, b. VA
Mary, age 11, and George age 8, b. Missouri - I think they are possibly children of Henry's by a first wife.

1860, Todd Co, Hh 1014
H. W. Bibb, age 50, male, b. VA
S. R., age 29, female, b. KY - I believe this is Susan B. Poindexter
M. E. Bibb, age 20, female, b. MO and G. M. age 17, male, b. MO - would seem to be the two children in the 1850 household and they are too old to be the children of Susan
B. B., age 6. J. T., age 3, both males and possibly children of Susan
M. M., age 35, female, and J. S., age 38, male, both born in KY and could be the Mary age 23 and John age 24, listed in 1850. Sister and brother of Henry.

1870 Census, Todd Co KY, Allensville.
Henry W. Bibb, age 61, b. VA. Susan B. age 40, b. KY
John age 10, Lucy age 7. [could John be the J. T., age 3 in 1860?]
Hh 74 is James Bibb, age 63, b. KY with Louisa F., age 50, b. VA
Hh 77 is J. S. Bibb, 49, and Susan E., age 59, born Virginia - probable siblings both found in the household of Branch Bibb in 1850.

Here are the siblings in 1880:
1880 Census, Todd Co KY, Allensville
Hh 53: John Bibb, age 53, lawyer, b. VA, parents b. VA.
Susan, age 70, sister, b. VA, parents b. VA

Henry seems to be in Logan Co KY, Hardison in 1880
Hh 78: Henry W., age 71, b. VA as were his parents
Susan R., age 49, wife, b. KY as were her parents
Bernoullie B., age 27, son, b. KY, parents b. VA [probably B. B., age 6, in 1870]
Nancy M., age 17, dau. [was she listed as Lucy in 1870? she's the right age]
Maggie, age 25, dau, b. KY, parents b. Tenn. [I wonder if Maggie could be the wife of B. B., a daughter-in-law, rather than a daughter.]

The Logan Co Cemetery book has a grave listed in Kennerley's Chapel Cemetery:
H. W. Bibb. Born 8 May 1809, died 26 Aug 1893. This could be Henry. He is the only Bibb listed as buried in this cemetery.


Susan B. POINDEXTER and Henry W. BIBB were married circa 1852. Henry W. BIBB, son of Branch Holcomb BIBB and Lucy SCOTT, was born in 1810 in Virgina.

Henry may have first been married to Judith Ann Munday, 30 Nov 1837, Pike Co, MO.
Henry W Bibb and Judith Munday County of Pike, Missouri marriage given under my hand 17 Dec 1837 J H Hughs, minister of the Gospel of Christian Church. Received for record 17 Dec 1837 W Rogers Rumaid.

1840 Jun 1  Federal Census Unknown Township, Pike County, Missouri H W Bibb 2 males 20-30 years of age 1 female under 5 [Mary], 1 female 15-20.

However a researcher of the Mundays appears to have traced a Henry W. Bibb into Wisconsin, 1846-1848.

1844 Jun  A meeting of the Democratic Whig Club  citizens of Benton Precinct , Iowa County, Wisconsin Territory.  H W Bibb was appointed to a committee to draft a constitution.  H W Bibb was also elected Vice President of this club.   (Galena, Illinois Northwestern Gazette and Galena Advertizer, July 12, 1844) 
1848  Dec 14 H W Bibb was the Justice of the Peace who performed the wedding ceremony for Samuel S Munday and Sophia Partin in Lafayette County, Wisconsin. Samuel was a brother to Judith.

If indeed the Wisconsin man is the same man that married Susan Poindexter, he brought two children to the marriage and was back in Todd Co KY by 1850. He may have left behind a young daughter in Missouri. The 1850 Census, Pike Co, MO, shows a Judith A. Bibb, age 4, living in the household of Abraham Thomas, age 43, and wife Lucinda, age 42. Lucinda thought to be a sister to Judith Munday. In 1860, Anna Bibb was listed with the Thomas family, age 12. It is also suggested a son Artie Bibb was raised by Samuel & Sophia in Wisconsin.
