According to Goodspeed's History of Southeast Missouri, page 642 and 643: "Lewis B. Hibbitts, son of Ebenezer H. and Margaret M. (Green) Hibbitts, was born in Liberty Township, St. Francois Co., Mo., in April, 1848. His father, Ebenezer H., was a native of Iredell County, N.C. and was probably of Irish extraction. He was reared in Iredell County, following agricultural pursuits, but being a man above the average in education he taught school a portion of his time after coming to Missouri. Previous to this he had married Miss Green, in Iredell County, N.C., and they had moved to Tennessee, locating in Hardin County, where they remained three years. They then came to Missouri, settled in Madison County, and here, as before stated, Mr. Hibbitts followed the profession of teaching through not altogether in this county, as he soon moved to Liberty Township, St. Francois County, and entered land there. He resided most of his time in St. Francois County, until his death, which occurred May 29, 1865. His wife survived him until 1877. She was a native of Iredell County, N.C. and was of Welsh descent. She was a member of the Baptist church. Mr. Hibbitts was a Democrat, politically and was a sheriff and collector of St. Francois County for a term and a half......"

Goodspeed's biographical appendix apparently does not support a Native American connection but that does not necessarily indicate the absence of such a connection.

Ebenezer H. was the son of Robert Hibbitts and Gertrude Rothwell Hibbitts of Iredell County, N.C. Robert and Gertrude have decendents in Throckmorton, Texas who decended through Robert Hibbitts, son of Robert and Gertrude and brother to Ebenezer.
