1. JOSEPH8 BISBEY, JR. (JOSEPH7 BISBY, BENJAMIN6 BISBEY, ELIJAH5 BISBEE, JOHN4, ELISHA3, THOMAS2 BESBEDGE, JOHN1 BESBEECH) was born February 02, 1814 in prob. Genesee Co., NY, and died November 12, 1863 in Forestville Twp., Fillmore Co., MN. He married SOPHIA CHARLOTTE WATERMAN1,2,3,4,5 1836 in Pennsylvania6, daughter of RESOLVED WATERMAN and NANCY PEARCE. She was born February 01, 1815 in Rochester, Monroe Co., NY7,8, and died May 05, 1901 in Poland Twp., Buena Vista Co., IA9.

Notes for JOSEPH BISBEY, JR.:
Early Settlement in Minnesota. (History of Fillmore County, 1912). The first settlers in this township were Levi Waterman and his brother-in-law, Joseph Bisby, natives of Pennsylvania, who came from Iowa in the fall of 1852, bringing their families, stock and household goods. Waterman settled in section 12, while Bisby's claim was east of the Waterman claim, largely in Carimona Township. Waterman sold out to Foster and Meighen and after moving about a while, settled in Kansas and pre-empted what is now a part of the city of Wichita. Bisby remained, became a prominent citizen and ended his days here. The Waterman's and Bisby's spent the winter of 1852-53 as the only settlers in the township.
In the township of Forestville, the first arrival registered on an oak tree on section twelve in 1852, and was carved as "Levi Waterman, of Pennsylvania, 1852." Mr. Waterman was a native of Pennsylvania, and made his way to this State by way of Iowa, where he had sojourned for a short time, arriving here in the fall of 1852. He brought with him his family, consisting of wife and two children, and a few head of stock. After reconnoitering for a short time he selected a claim on section twelve, and put up a rude little shanty to protect his family from the violence of the elements. He lived upon his claim about six months, and sold it to the next arrival, R. M. Foster.
Mr. Foster arrived in Decorah, Iowa, in June, 1853, and after looking about for a couple of days, rolled his worldly possessions up in a little sack, tied them to the end of a shillelagh, threw it over his shoulder, and started out for "Looking Glass" prairie on foot. He finally changed his route and found his way to Fillmore county, passing through where the village of Elliota now is, and found Captain Elliott there, just putting up the little log cabin that for so many years marked the only habitation in that region, and for years was supposed to be the first building erected in the county. From there he made his way up to the place where Levi Waterman had "squatted," and where the village of Forestville was afterwards laid out. He bought out Waterman's interest, and for the time boarded with the family. He soon put up a substantial log building, building what at that time was considered a luxury, a stone chimney. This house he ran as a hotel, doing his own cooking, and made a reputation that was discounted by none at that time in the county. Mr. Foster is still a resident of the town.
This year, 1853, the town lines were run by the government surveyors. In the spring of 1854, Mr. Foster, Captain Elliott, James M. Sumner, William C. Pickett, Mr. Willis, and other residents of the county went to Chatfield to assist in organization, and it was called Fillmore in honor of Millard Fillmore, who was just retiring from the White House.
During the year there were accessions, and among those who came were Henry Fitch, Joseph Bisbee, and Joel Watkins.
A saw-mill was commenced in 1854, by Mr. Bisbee, who soon sold his interest to Forest Henry and Mr. Renslow, who completed it and also built a grist-mill in 1855.
In District #90, this district embraces the village of Forestville and surrounding territory. It was undoubtedly, as is claimed, the first organized school district in the county, as it was organized as district No. 1, in 1854, through the influence of R. M. Foster. The first school was held in Mr. Bisbee's residence, by Mrs. Fuller, with twelve or fourteen little ones in attendance.

Source: (History of Fillmore County, Volume I, 1912). First School in Organized District: What is said to have been the first school in an organized district in Fillmore County was then in Forestville village, taught in 1855. The district is now No. 90. On January 2, 1855, this district became No. 1. Before this, school had been taught in the home of Joseph Bisby, in North Forestville, by his daughter, Minvera Bisbee. This was a select school.
In the Fillmore County Pioneer, Thursday June 5, 1856, Carimona, Fillmore County, Minnesota newspaper, Election Precincts of Fillmore County, Minnesota Territory, the Register's Office on April 7, 1856, the Board of County Commissioners met pursuant to law, and proceeded to establish the following election precincts: Carimona Precinct was established for townships 102 and 103, range 11. Henry H. Winslow, Joseph Bisby and Orrin West were appointed Judges of Election.

Notes for SOPHIA CHARLOTTE WATERMAN:
According to the Fillmore History book there was a Levi Waterman whom was brother-in-law to Joseph Bisbey. Another source in South Dakota also has it Waterman as her maiden name.
Sophia was listed in the 1870 census as living in Brookings, Brookings County, South Dakota. She is then found in the 1895 and 1900 census for Poland Twp., Buena Vista County, Iowa. The 1900 census indicates she had 5 children and 3 are still living in 1900.

Sophia's obituary:
At the home of her son C. R. Bisbey two and one-half miles northeast of town Sunday, May 5th, 1901 of ailments incident to old age, Sophia C. Bisbey died at the ripe old age of 86 years, 3 months, and 5 days.
Sophia C. Waterman was born near Rochester, NY, February 1st, 1815 and at the age of five removed with her mother to the state of Pennsylvania. Here in 1836, she was united in marriage to Joseph Bisbey who died in 1863. Soon after her marriage she moved with her husband to Illinois and later to Minnesota. In 1891, she moved to Buena Vista County where until the time of her death she was made her home. Five children were born to her one of whom died in infancy and one in young womanhood. Three children survive her, Rev. N. R. Bisbey, of Webb, C. R. Bisbey at whose home she passed away and a daughter, Mrs. George McNeir, of Spring Valley, Minn. All of her surviving children were with her when she passed away. She accepted Christ and was baptized into the Baptist church in 1840 and was a consistent Christian for sixty-one years. She died in perfect peace and faith in the Savoir she had trusted for so many years. For the past two years she has been a great sufferer but through it all she retained her mind and bore the pain with Christian patience and fortitude. She talked of death as simply going home and her last intelligible words were "Jesus will help".
The funeral services were held at the home, Rev. Lapham, Baptist minister at Ayrshire, officiating, after which all that was mortal of Grandma Bisbey was laid to rest in the Garfield cemetery.
Card of Thanks:
We wish to thank the friends and neighbors who so kindly helped us in caring for our mother in her last sickness. N. R. Bisbey C. R. Bisbey Mrs. George McNeir

In the book titled, "The Waterman Family, by Donald Lines Jacobus and Edgar Waterman, 1954. Vol. III, pg. 369.", it states the following for Charlotte, child of Resolved and Nancy (Pearce) Waterman:
"Charlotte b. ?; m. ______ _______ . She went from Kansas to South Dakota, and lived with her sons on a homestead claim of 320 acres. When Daniel B. Waterman [No. 87-13] was working for the Chicago and Northwestern R. R. Co., he accidentally met her there, and located a town site on the line of the Northwestern Road which became Brookins, about a mile from where she lived."
(This town would be Brookings, South Dakota).

When eight years old, he came with his parents to Illinois, settling near Rockford. In 1853 the family removed to Clayton County, Iowa, and settled in what became known as "Chipman Hollow" where his father built and operated a saw mill. Nine years later, Lafayette came to Forestville, Fillmore Co., MN, where he was married to Annaliza Bisby on December 16, 1863. On October 13, 1864, he enlisted in the First Minnesota Volunteers, Company C, Heavy Artillery, and served until the close of the war.
About fifty years ago, while living in Freesoil, Minnesota, Lafayette was converted and joined the Free Baptist church. Forty eight years ago his wife died. Five children were born to them, three of whom died in infancy. The two remaining are Mrs. Harriet Reams, of Ipswich, S.D. and Mrs. Lottie Graham of Waterville, MN.

Besides the two daughters he leaves 13 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, one brother, Horace Chipman, and one sister, Mrs. Nancy Finch, both of Eureka, CA.
As a Christian, Lafayette, "Kept the faith", with confident trust in his Savior. Honesty, temperance and reverence were perhaps his favorite virtues. He was a cheerful giver to the support of religious work. He despised hypocrisy and hated sham. He was a genial companion and his friendship was valued by all who shared it.
The funeral was held at the Baptist church. The sermon performed by the Rev. True, whose people knew the "Chipman and Babcock" families in Iowa in the early days. Members of the Relief Corps attended in a body. The most excellent music was the offering of Mrs. Lane, and a quartette composed of Mr. Len Lyman, the Misses Irene and Emma Warren, and Mr. Will Hart. The bearers were George Payne, James Farnsworth, Ben Alink, James Hopkins, Albert Lee, and James Sprott.

Notes for NOAH R. BISBEY:
"The William Ward Genealogy", 1925 p.595:
"He was a farmer and preacher, residing in Minnesota, Dakota, and Iowa."

Noah R. Bisby's Obituary dated May 7, 1914:

Reverend N. R. Bisby, pastor of the Baptist church in Webb, father of C. A. Bisby of this place passed away rather suddenly last Monday morning from heart failure. Mr. Bisby had gone to the barn to care for his horses and failing to return, search was made when his lifeless form was found in the barn. He had been somewhat poorly of late but no one had expected the end to come so soon. Sunday evening he had attended church services and then had found it necessary to rest for a moment while on the way to church. A number of years ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis and he had not been robust since that time but his general health was apparently better in late years.
N. R. Bisby was born near Woodstock, Illinois, April 16, 1847. At about the age of 6 he went with his parents to Fillmore County, Minnesota, where he grew up to manhood. He was married to Minvera Ward and in 1878 he migrated to Brookings County, South Dakota where he homesteaded near where the town of Brookings now stands. He lived there until 1891 he removed to Kossuth county, Iowa, to live one year after which he made his home in this vicinity (Marathon, Iowa) and in Webb.
When Mr. Bisby was about 16, his father died and the responsibility of managing the family farm fell upon his young shoulders. He knew what hard work was and had many years of hard experience in the pioneer life of the northwest. Some eighteen years ago he was ordained a minister in the Baptist church and through all the years since he served the charge in what is now Webb. He began preaching there before the town was established, using a school house as a church. Faithfully and well he ministered to his charge. He was always a fine Christian man, of a gentle, sweet tempered disposition and his influence will live on. Besides his wife, the faithful companion of the years, there are two sons and a daughter to mourn his loss. These are J. A. Bisby, recently moved to Sutherland, Oregon; Mrs. John Stemple of Boone, and C. A. Bisby of this place. The funeral was held yesterday in Webb, Reverend Zoelhoefer of Canton, South Dakota, conducting the last sad rites. Interment was in Garfield cemetery.

Bisby Family

Noah Bisby and his wife Minvera, a native of Pennsylvania, moved to this area from South Dakota in 1900 when Rev. Bisby became the first pastor of the Baptist Church in Webb. He was pastor there until his death in 1914.
Rev. and Mrs. Bisby had three children: Joe, Mary Bisby Stemple and Charles. Charles married Bertha Ray Phillipe of Alta in 1899 and in 1905 the young couple moved to Marathon. Mr. Bisby operated a pump and windmill business and was superintendent of the Marathon Water Works. In 1910, he joined with Fred Johnson to operate the Ford Auto business in Marathon.
Charles and Bertha had three children: Stella Bisby Clauson, of Los Gatos, California; Spencer, of Mendocino, California; and Bernice Bisby Wood, of San Jose, California.
Stella and Ernest lived on a farm near Marathon for over 20 years, until Ernest's death in 1952. They had two daughters: Joy Clauson Frederick and Carol Clauson Moore. Carol and her husband, Verlyn, are still very much a part of our community.

[Storm Lake Pilot Tribune, Friday, May 15, 1914]

Marathon:
Rev. N. R. Bisby, pastor of the Baptist Church in Webb, IA, father of C. A. Bisby of this place passed away rather suddenly last Monday morning from heart failure. Mr. Bisby had gone to the barn to care for his horses and failing to return, search was made when his lifeless form was found in the barn. He had been some what poorly of late but no one had expected the end to come so soon. Sunday evening he had attended church services and then had found it necessary to rest for a moment while on the way to church. A number of years ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis and he had not been robust since that time but his general health was apparently better in late years.

Charles R. Bisby was born at Woodstock, ILL, July 3, 1850. He moved with his parents to Minnesota at an early age, and came to South Dakota in 1879, settling on a homestead claim. He was married here in 1882 to Miss Sarah McKnight. They moved to Iowa and lived there for a time, coming back to South Dakota in 1906 and have made their home here since that date.
He is survived by his wife and two children, Guy R. Bisby, now a resident of Winnipeg, Canada, and a daughter, Mrs. Bertha Nagel, of Brookings. All were present at the funeral.
Mr. Bisby joined the Baptist church in Brookings 25 years ago. He has always been a highly respected citizen and enjoyed the love and friendship of the entire community. The Register joins in offering its deepest sympathy to the bereaved family."
