Mabel Brown-Hibbard was my great-grandmother. It was her desire to see her vast collection of photos, letters, post cards, artifacts, newspapers and other historical and genealogical treasures preserved and enjoyed for future generations. This collection consists of hundreds of items, and more will be uploaded to this site as they are digitized.
The MBH Collection began with other members of our family, mainly Mabel's aunt by marriage, Annie Woodruff-Ransom. Over the years, the collection grew. It provides a glimpse into some of the most incredible times in United States history.
It is my pleasure to honor my great-grandmother's wishes by preserving and sharing this collection with others searching for lost relatives or with those who simply enjoy the history. Please respect Mabel's memory by observing our copyrights. Nothing found on this website can be sold or duplicated without our consent.
As avid genealogists, we understand the desire to add documents or photos to family trees or websites. We consent to this, only when the following statement is clearly associated with the item: “From the Mabel Brown-Hibbard Collection at www.mbhcollection.com.”
Thank you for your cooperation. Please enjoy this collection!
