Sibbell was born in Champaign County, possibly in the American Indian tribe called, Oneida.
She married Doctor Zebedee Dressback, and had two sons, Williams and Alfred,
She was in great demand as an Herbal Healer and Midwife. Sibbell had her own way of healing and was seen many nights gathering herbs for her American Indian remedies. Many of the babies in the area had her to thank for their healthy births. Some of her remedies were more powerful than those of her husband, Doctor Zebedee Dressback.
Sibbell died of consumption on January 7, 1882 at the young age of 37. She is burried just outside the cemetery line in Kossuth, Ohio. Possibly due to her heritage, beliefs or personal preference. Her stone is inscribed: "Behold I stand at the door and knock"
Dr. Zebedee died July 1906, aged 66 years and is buried beside her.
