    • We know from the record that Joseph C. Bisbee was father of T. J. Bisbee; however, It is not clear that Sally Ann Morey was his mother.

      In 1848, T. J. married Caroline Maxfield at her father's home in "Log City" (Eaton), in Madison County, New York, by Elder Putnam. During the Civil War, he served as a cook with Company D, 114th New York Volunteer Infantry.

      Records of the First Congregational Church of Lebanon, Madison County, New York, p. 172: "The sacrament of the Lord's Supper was administered. Thaddeus Bisbee, Caroline Bisbee, Mary Richardson, and Charlotte Maxfield receive the ordinance of Baptism and together with Sylvia Ann Seeley entered into covenant with the Church."

      Also, p. 181: Apr. 27, 1878, "In the matter of non-resident members, the following persons have experienced a desire to be considered as walking in fellowship with the Church.... Mr. and Mrs. Thadius Bisbe." Also, "Voted Charlotte Maxfield's name be dropped from the record."

      Also, "Thaddeus Bisbee, Caroline Bisbee dismissed Jan 10, 1880. Charlotte Maxfield excommunicated."

      T. J. and his son Willis homesteaded near Franklin, Franklin, Nebraska. After a minimal period of time, they sold their properties for good profit. Thaddeus and Caroline moved into the village of Franklin, where T. J. operated a meat market (History of City of Franklin, 1976, 2nd pub 1983, Service Press, Henderson, Neb.), and ran a hotel (1885 Census). Caroline became an active real estate investor.

      The following quotes are from affidavits found in T. J. Bisbee's Civil War Pension File:

      "Our name is spelt Bisbe (and) if it is spelt any other way it is the falt of the riter." -Harvey T. Bisbee, 1894.

      "The name "Bisbe" is often spelled and written Bisbee ending with ee, but Bisbe is undoubtedly the correct way of spelling the name, as I find it so written by said Thaddeus J. Bisbe in his own hand writing in our family record in our family Bible, and also written on other occasions and places such as legal papers which are now before me at this writing; and the name is spelled "Bisbe" in his Discharge from the U.S. Army dated June 18th, 1865, which is also now before me. I do not remember of ever seeing Thaddeus J. Bisbe write his surname Bisbee, although we lived together, being husband and wife for forty-five years." -Caroline M. Bisbee, 1895

    6. [S1736] Note.
      There is so much variation in Caroline's age as reported in the census and elsewhere, it is difficult to tell her true birth year. The 1900 census gives her birth as July 1835. Her age at time of death on her gravestone and a couple of the census returns agree with 1835. If true, that presents an obvious problem: if Caroline and Thaddeus were married in October of 1848, as stated in his Civil War pension file, Caroline would have been only 13 years old! The 1850 census has "Caroline Maxfield, age 16," still living at home with her parents. Had she been married almost two years earlier, as stated in the pension files, she should have been enumerated as Caroline Bisbee. Hence, in 1850, she was either still single, or she married during the immediate census year. Thaddeus Bisbee was not found anywhere in the 1850 census. Compiler believes Caroline may have been born as early as 1834, and/or married as late as 1851-52.
