FROM "THE SLOOPERS--THEIR ANCESTRY AND POSTERITY" by J. Hart Rosdail:
"Of the Frederick C. Whittlesey children, Fredericka was the oldest, and she apparently like the first name very much, because she married a man named Frederick Sibson. He was the eldest of four born to Thomas and Martha Beeson Sibson at Nottingham, England. Frederick was married before and had settled in Rochester where he was in the lime and cement business. Later he had gone to Syracuse as a telegraph operator and then had been station ticket agent for the New York Central. During the Civil War he handled messages and contacts for important Army people. With Fredericka he lived in Syracuse, in a nice home on the heights overlooking the city, where he enjoyed gardening and flowers. However, after their death, both of the Sibsons were buried back in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Rochester. Fredericka had been a member of the Presbyterian Church there."
