Seelye: Bibbins/Hart Family Estrangement

The Albert and Ruth Hart family never saw or visited Ruth's mother - Seelye until 1963 - shortly berofre her death and when she didn't know who we were because of Alheimer's. Seely and her husband Francis. They disowned Ruth and her family when she married Albert. The Bibbins' were important in Indianapolis and didn't consider Albert Sr. as good enough to join their family. His father was a fruit and vegetable broker, and that wasn't in the same class as Francis - who was Chief Pharacist at Eli Lilly in Indianapolis. So we never communicated with them, except for a financial agreement in 1952 to let Seelye keep the income from the Lilly stock which he had left to Ruth in his Will. (and possession of the stock certificates).

Ruth's brother, Eugene and his wife Bobby also never visited with us - although he did send a Chrismas gift to the kids every year. We just didn't really understand whom it was from.

The saving grace, for us, from the Bibbins family was my Great Aunt Bessie Bibbins Hencke - who loved all of us, visited with us often, and cared for us until the time of her own death in 1972.
