Rev. George H. Vibbert

Rev. George H. Vibbert, who was pastor of the church from January 1, 1874, to July, 1877, was born in Chicopee October 4, 1837, and was ordained in Westfield, O., in 1859. Before coming to Somerville, he had preached in Ohio, Lansing, Mich., Rockport, and East Boston.

Rev. Mr. Vibbert was extremely popular among the young people, and is remembered as a man of fine tastes and sensibilities. In the issue of the Somerville Journal of March 24, 1877, it was said: ‘This is the only church of the denomination in the city; hence the attendants come from all parts. There is considerable interest in the meetings, particularly among the young people, who are a large part of the society. The society is noted for the festive occasions which it celebrates, always taking pains to observe them with considerable spirit.’
