"Dibblee, Ebenezer, son of Rev. Ebenezer Dibblee, the minister of St. John's Church, Stamford, Conn., fifty-one years, came to Pine Plains 1784. He had been from 1776 to 1781 in business in Sharon, Conn., moved from thence to Salisbury in 1782, to Pine Plains in 1784, then North East Precinct, opened a store in the log house then standing west of Pine Plains corners, on the site of the now Albert Bowman residence, and lived in part of the same house. (See cut p. 315) Augustus Bates, a relative, was for several years a clerk. In 1788 North East Precinct became North East Town, and Mr. Dibblee was elected town clerk, and re-elected four years. In 1793 was Supervisor, in 1795 and 1796 town clerk, and supervisor in 1797 and 1798. Meantime he continued merchandising, and in 1801 his second son Fyler, then twenty-one, became a partner under the firm name Ebenezer Dibblee & Son. July 1, 1803, they purchased the present Ketterer Hotel property of Dr. Asahel Haskins. The bounds of this purchase is south from the corner to Mr. Frank Eno's law office, then easterly about fifteen rods, then northerly on the west line of now Peter Wolven dwelling to Church Street, containing "three acres, one rood and eighteen purchases." This land was a portion of six acres which Haskins that day had bought of Wm. Cromwell. The remainder of the six acres joined this to the east on Church Street. In the spring of 1804, E. Dibblee & Son. Fyler Dibblee being the active man, commenced building the hotel Ketterer on the corner, Ezra L. Barrett, the boss carpenter, taking the contract. The building was completed that year, the painting, not being included in t the contract, being done in December 1804 and January 1805 for which Mr. Barrett makes this entry: To 36 days work at painting $34.31. To 6 weeks boarding while painting, $9.00. Nathaniel Ruggles was its first keeper, but the sign post, an indispensable addendum to taverns, Fyler Dibblee and his father had failed to furnish. So, from necessity, landlord Ruggles had to supply this deficiency which he did in a wise and becoming manner by permitting Boss Barrett to give the final stroke. For this merited honor he records this modes charge against landlord Ruggles, Hewing sign post '6s, and if the chroniclers of that time have recorded the height of this sign post when set, and what sort of a board and name landlord Ruggles place upon its top, the record nor tradition has not come under our eyes nor into our ears. The next year, 1805, Ebenezer Dibblee and Fyler his son built the Bostwick store now Chase store, under the supervision of Mr. Barrett the carpenter. He worked upon it all the year and finished it after E. Dibblee & Son had moved into it in the fall of that year. It was completed in January 1806, and Mr. Barrett's bill was $599.28½.
In February, 1808, Fyler Dibblee purchased the now Walter T. Myers house and store lot of Peter Husted for $319.50, and in that year built the brick dwelling thereon, the only brick house in the village. Mr. Barrett did the carpenter work which is still in good condition. In this year, 1808, Ebenezer Dibblee retired from the business firm, and Fyler continued the business alone until 1816, when Reuben W. Bostwick, who had been in his employ as clerk since about 1812 except the year 1815 in Albany became a partner under the firm Fyler Dibblee & Co.. The next year, 1817, the Red Hook store was started. (See Bostwick Lineage for this and dissolution in 1822.) Fyler Dibblee retired from the mercantile business in 1822 and moved to the Thompson farm consisting of 810 acres, now C. C. More, about two miles southwest of the village. In January 1825 a notice appears in a Pokeepsie paper that the greater part of the farm will be sold at auction on the 17th of February next a the court house in Pokeepsie. Financial embarrassment was the cause. The farm was sold, and Mr. Dibblee moved to new York and opened an office No. 50 Wall Street for commission business. Two years later, June 11, 1827, he announced that David Z. Wickes was his partner, their office being at the Railway of the new York Dry Dock Company on the eastern side of the city. He deceased July 13,1841. He married a daughter of Dr. Wilson, of Clermont, and some of his children were born in the brick dwelling, now W. T. Myers, one of whom William W., of New Jersey, was living two years since at the age of 86. During his residence in Pine Plains he was a prominent citizen in every regard, and favorably and honorably known through out this county and Southern Columbia. He served the town as its clerk first in 1803 and '4, again in 1811 and as Supervisor n 1818 and '19, and in July 1818 was appointed judge of the court of common pleas in this county, having for his associates Daniel C. Ver Plank, Albro Akin And Maturin Livingston. Upon his retirement from the mercantile business in 1822 R. W. Bostwick and Brother purchased the stock and assumed the liabilities of the firm. It as a heavy indebtedness, but the prudence and wisdom of R. W. Bostwick, principally the others retiring, disposed of all liabilities in a few years. Ebenezer Dibblee, after his retirement from merchandising, devoted his energies to farming on the lands of George Clark, on which the log house stood, until his decrease Feb. 13, 1826, aged 81. His wife, Esther Harvey, deceased July 17, 1843. They were married by his father, Rev. Ebenezer Dibblee, at the residence of Joel Harvey his wife's father, in Sharon, Conn., Nov. 14, 1776, who lived in the brick house (Morehouse) on the flat between Sharon and Amenia. March 17, 1827, Sally, his only surviving sister, deceased at Catskill, in her 71st year. Sally, a daughter, deceased at Pine Plains Sept. 10, 1821, age 37. His children were Henry, Fyler, Rhuanma Smith, born in Sharon, Conn.; Frederick, born in Salisbury, Conn.; Sally, Caty, Richard Harvey, Harriet, Eliza, Maria Esther, Edward Ebenezer, Cornelia Henrietta, Julia Amelia Ann, born in Pine Plains. Harriet married Jacob Van Ness of Red Hook. She deceased 1813, and he married 2d Rhuama Smith, (widow Stevenson,) who deceased 1852. Cornelia married Aaron C. Hall, of Catskill, and have descendants in New Haven. Caty, or Catharine, married Egbert Thompson, son of Ezra Thompson, of Federal Square, who with his brother-in-law Edward Ebenezer Dibblee were partners in merchandizing at the Federal Store, commencing 1815 and dissolving the partnership October 29, 1817, Mr. Dibblee continuing the business there until 1821, and perhaps later. Henry married a Miss Reed of Coxsackie. Fyler and Richard married sisters, daughters of Dr. Wilson, of Clermont. Ebenezer Dibblee was an Episcopal churchman, and retained his connection with the church in Sharon, Conn., which had received its first ministrations from his father, and of which his father-in-law, Mr. Joel Harvey, was a leading churchman. But during the Revolutionary war the church here was used as a barrack, and never used afterward for worship. In 1809 the present Episcopal society there was organized, and in 1812 Ebenezer Dibblee, then a resident of Pine Plains (as now organized), in conjunction with Reuben Warner of New Milford and Moses Seymour of Litchfield, was chosen to select a site for the church building in Sharon, and the Episcopal church stands upon the site. A little later, 1815, the Union Meeting House" of Pine Plains was built., in which through the influence of the Dibblee family the Episcopalians had a recognized right. (See Presbyterian church, p. 166, and Episcopal church, p. 223.) He may very properly be called the founder of the Episcopal church in Pine Plains. Mr. Ebenezer Dibblee decease February 13, 1825, as hereinbefore noticed, and March 14th following his real and personal effects were sold at public vendue. These included the lease of the farm west of the village where he lived, then containing one hundred and thirty acres, the site of the now Albert Bowman residence, four wood lots of fifteen acres each, thirty-eight acres of land, principally grass land, and the equal undivided half of the hotel, store house, shops, outbuildings and building lots, which comprised the hotel corner property which he and his son Fyler bought as partners in 1803. [Note-Reuben W. Bostwick had become the owner of Fyler Dibblee's half interest in this property about 1822, and at this sale purchased the half interest of Ebenezer Dibblee to the store property, now Chase store.] At the same time was sold all the furniture, house hold utensils, milch cows, young cattle, working horses and colts, hogs, grain on the ground, stacks of hay, farming utensils, &c., of the late Ebenezer Dibblee, deceased. The sale will commence at 9 o'clock in the morning, and a liberal credit given for good security. A few of the household articles sold at this time are to be found in some dwellings in the town now. This was the end of all things animate or inanimate pertaining to the family of Ebenezer Dibblee in Pine Plains."

REV. FREDERICK DIBBLEE: This youngest son of the Rev. Ebenezer Dibblee of Stamford was educated a Columbia College, New York, where he would have graduated in 1778, probably with the intention of taking holy orders. But in Nov. 1776, he with other Stamford Loyalists, was trasported to Lebanon in the eastern part of Connecticut, but was allowed by Governor Trumbull to retun home the following spring. In April of 1777, when the King's troups burned Danbury, CT, his life was threatened for refusing to take an active part with the rebels: he was obliged to take refuge on Long Island, where his older brother, Fyler, had already gone.

Frederick engaged in trade in company with a Mr. Jackson at Oyster Bay, Long Island, and here he acquired some property. While residing on L.I., he m Nancy Anna Beach, a refugee from Strtford, CT. Frederick and his partner-in-trade suffered grievously at the hands of teh rebels who came in whale boats from New Jersey and elsewhere. They were plundered five times in the aggregate amount of one thousand, two hundred pounds. In Nov. of 1782 they were stripped of their household goods and their best wearing apparel.

Frederick and Nancy joined the Loyalists going to St. John, N.B., under the leadership of the Rev. John Sayre, but he could not settle his business affairs in time to go with his brother Fyler in teh Spring Fleet of 1783. His wife's delecate condition and his own health detained them at the residence of his father in Stamford until the emigration of the Loyalists in the June Fleet. Nancy's two brothers, William and Lewis Beach, were grantees of Kingston, N.B. The Dibblees sailed north on the ship "Bridgewater", arriving in N.B. in late summer. Frederick drew Parrtown lot #112 (St. John), but went on to Kingston where the family resided for four years. During that time, Frederick was often "Chosen to read prayers".

Hearing favorable reports about the Loyalist settlements on the upper St. John, frederick obtained a grant ont he Meductic. When exploring his property he fell asleep in the canoe and the Indian who was poling the craft went far beyond the intended destination. But Frederick was much impressed with the area at Woodstock, and not long after he exchanged his Meductic grant for one at Woodstock. these grants were of the most awkward shapes. His 500 acres measured approximately three-fourths of a mile river frontage and extended westward almost eight miles. This is equivalent to a town lot one foot wide by one hundred twenty feet deep. The glebe for the use of the Recto, church wardens and vestry of Christ Church adjoing that of the pastor was of similar shape and acreage.

Near the river Frederick built a log house for his young and expanding family. this rude structure, which had to be "plaistered" each November to keep out the drafts, served the family for about twenty-four years until he built a frame house in 1811, one of the first in Woodstock.

At the urging of his neighbors, Frederick traveled to Halifax where he was ordained on 23 Oct. 1791 by Rev. Charles Inglis, first bishop of Nova Scotia, as Rector of the Woodstock Parish and Missionary to the Indians. It took three months to make this arduous journey by canoe, schooner, skating and on foot. Upon his return, his first official act was to perform the marriage on 30 Nov. 1791 for Michael Smith and Phebe Ketchum. Eleven days later he baptised John Bedell.

Pioneer life was difficult. Each year the log house had to be weatherproofed. Lumbering went on all the time. The sudden uprising of the river often washed away their store of firewood, or demolished their supply of fence rails. He had little help until his sons grew old enough to help him with the planting and harvesting of grain and getting it to the grist mill. There was hay to exchange for potatoes; maple trees to be tapped and the sap boiled down for their annual supply of sugar, "honey" (syrup). Vinegar and beer; cows, hogs and sheep to be cared for. They hunted ducks and geese, and the pigeons which made the daytime dark as night, but nowhere is there mention of hunting bear,elk or moose.

There was constant visiting among the pioneers. One is amazed at the formality of address among old friends – Parson Dibblee and Lady – Captain Ketchum and Lady. Christmas was strictly a religious observance but New Year’s celebrations brought together most of the villagers. They were very lenient in arranging recreation for the young people – "balls", sleighing parties, harvest festivals and "frolicks". The children attended school in Kingston of Frederickston, which afforded frequent visiting.

Rev. Frederick kept a dairy which has been invaluable in learning about the daily life of the people during this time. In this diary he seldom mentioned his clerical duties of buring, marrying and baptising the people, but his church records show him to have been meticulous in recording these vital records.

Frederick Dibblee was b 9 Dec. 1753 at Stamford, CT: d at Woodstock, Carleton Co., N.B. 17 May 1826, age 72 years. H ma about 1780 at Oyster Bay, Long Island, Nancy Anna Beach, daughter of Abel and Mary (Lewis) Beach of Stratford. Nancy’s widowed mother had m (2nd) at Stratford 1782 John Ketchum of Norwalk, CT. Nancy Anna was babtised under the name Anna July 1759 at Stratford. She d 18 Apr. 1838 at Woodstock. Both Frederick and Nancy Anna were buried in the old Burial Grounds at Woodstock
"Graduated Kings College (now Columbia). Rector of Episcopal Church, Woodstock." - Van Buren Lamb, Jr., "Ancestor", "Dibble Family"
