    Notes 
    • He was 3 years old when his mother died. He was shifted from one relative to another the most of his boyhood. Nobody wanted him or cared where he went. He was never sent to school. He was tolerated by relatives. He did nothing wrong. He was depply religious (Methodist).
      In his wanderings, he came to the Indian Territory, Choctaw Nation and worked as a "snipe" on the new railroad that was being built. Later he went to work for Thomas Oakes (brother of Mary Oakes Hibben). Thomas Oakes was a county Judge of Kiamichi Co., Indian Territory, Choctaw Nation. They lived near Frogville (not very far from the house of John Hibben, Sr. b. 1771). Thomas W. Oakes was the father of Lem W., Joel E. and George Oakes.
      Mary Oakes Hibben was teaching school when she fell in love with and married Thomas Dickerson Hibben. County Judge Thomas Oakes (brother to Mary Oakes Hibben) performed the ceremony. Thomas Dickerson Hibben was 23 when he married and could not write his name or read a word. Mary taught him each night, carefully and faithfully. When his children came along and were going to school, he would help them with their work. He was known to be a naturally above the average man in intelligence.
      Thomas Dickerson Hibben was a Clerk of the Supreme Court of the Choctaw Nation and stayed at Tuskahoma alot of the time. After Statehood, he became one of the first County Commissioners of Choctaw Co.
      Thomas Dickerson Hibben applied to become a citizen in 1902 by intermarriage of the Choctaw Nation.

    1. [S19] The Soper Democrat, 3 Feb 1916.
      T.D. Hibben died at his home near Frogville at an early hour Tuesday after a lingering illness. Mr. Hibben several days ago left his home for Muskogee where he was going to serve as a juror in the Federal court and took sick before leaving Hugo and was compelled to return home, where he continued to grow worse until his death.
      Mr. Hibben was one of Choctaw County’s most prominent citizens, having lived here for almost half a century, marrying into one of the old families, and has spent many years as a useful citizen. When statehood was given to Oklahoma, Mr. Hibben was elected as a member of the Board of County Commissioners, which office he filled with ability until his other duties required so much of his time and he resigned his position and has since devoted his time to his fine farm southeast of Hugo.
      The funeral was conducted Wednesday at his late home under the auspices of the Masons and Odd Fellows of which orders he was an honored member.
