TRIBUTE TO CYRUS SIBLEY: Descended from John Sibley who arrived in America
in 1629, Cyrus Sibley came from Sutton, Massachusetts, to Blakeley, Alabama,
about 1810 and acquired vast holdings in Baldwin County. In 1847, he founded
the village of Sibley City, now called Montrose, and in 1856 deeded this burial
ground where he lies.
In recognition of his sterling character and
great contribution to our area, this plaque is gratefully erected by the
citizens of Montrose.
