Note N5961 Index
At some point in her life, Barbara put together a memoir containing many of her memories of her grandparents, parents and other family members. We are truly fortunate that she did this, because it helps to bring to life the persons she writes about. Without her work, we would know very little about this family. Ray Scribner of Huntington, Indiana, has one copy of this memoir. It's unknown how many other copies are in existence.

In her memoir, "MEMORIES," Barbara Libby speaks of her uncle Harold, as follows:
I'm sorry I can't tell you much about Harold. He was adopted by the Hooper's [ed. note: Lot N. and Statie Cash Hooper].
Aunt Bernie told me that grammy was very sick for quite a long time when Harold was a little boy. The Hooper's lived near by and they took Harold to live with them until grammy was better. Harold, however had become very fond of the Hooper's and they of him. At some point the Hooper's only child died and Harold filled the void. Their home became a second home to Harold. Somewhere along the way grammy, grampa and the Hooper's agreed that Harold would live with the Hooper's. I understand that it wasn't until Harold was a young man that he took the Hooper's name.
Harold and his wife Velma lived in Windham on the Roosevelt Trail. They were married for sixty eight years.
Harold was a machinist at S.D. Warren Co. for forty six years. I only met Harold once, I think it was an anniversary party for Clara and Ralph. What a pleasant surprise. He looked just like the rest of the Scribner family, big brown eyes and all. He was very pleased to meet all of us and was very surprised that there were so many of us. I only wish we had met long ago. Finally meeting Harold made me feel that the family was complete at last.

William Bailey was an Underwood Typewriter dealer.
In "MEMORIES," Barbara Libby has these things to say about her aunt Pearl:
I think of Aunt Pearl as very outgoing, friendly, attractive and stylish. . . .
I became better acquainted with Aunt Pearl when she came to Preble chapel with Aunt Bernie and Bud and Richard Harris to take part in our variety shows. We had lots of fun and she was a good sport. She and Richard did a great impression of Edith and Archie Bunker singing, "Those Were The Days."
She loved to sing and dance. She told me she would put on a record and dance all over the house by herself.
Aunt Pearl is very talented. She use to paint when she lived at Riverview Terrace. She showed me some of her paintings. They were very nice.
