Hi Pat- I do not know if this will be of any help to you. I found a Tibbets family in the 1850 US Census Maine Kennebec County City of Augusta. The family was headed by a James & Sarah Tibbets both 56 years of age. The people living with them in the household were: Andras Tibbets(male) 27 yrs, Chanly Tibbets(female) 25yrs, Mehitable Tibbets(female) 20 yrs, James Tibbets Jr(male) 19 yrs, William Tibbets(male) 14 yrs, Melissa Denman(female) 6 yrs, John Denman(male) 5 yrs, Robert Jones(male) 25 yrs. I am seeking information from the Tibbets on the two Denman children listed above. Melissa Denman maybe my great grandmother. I would like to know what Melissa's relationship was to the Tibbets and what happened to her. The information that I am looking into is that Melissa may have married a man by the name of Charles H Pratt from Greene, Maine. He is listed as a deserter from the 23rd Maine Infantry Division as of October 1862. Any information that I could use about the Tibbets, Denmansor Pratts mentioned would be appreciated. Thanks Art Denman.
