    These photos are awesome! Especially the outfits and poses in the 1916 sibling pic — are those swimsuits? Also the little suffragette. Incredible blacks and whites in the Milton livery photo.

    I have a dresser that I bought from a guy who said he purchased it in Boston from Mrs. Sarah Bibby’s great grand-daughter. That doesn’t add up if her children had no children. There is a very old purchase sticker on the back that says “The Property of Mrs Sarah Bibby Columbia Lancaster County Pennsylvania”.

    Hello Rocco….thanks for your message. Yes, this is a different Sarah Bibby. I looked her up on and she lived in Columbia, PA with her husband Charles. No close relation to the Bibby family from Milton, Pennsylvania where Sarah “Foust” Bibby and her husband Harry lived. Again, thanks.

    Thank You!! Should I subscribe to to find out more about her and possibly the provenance of the dresser?
