He was formerly a farmer, and has been married three times. His first wife died about 1848. Ludwell C. was educated in the common schools of Virginia, and up to 1861 made his home with his father.

To Mr. BIBB's marriage were born seven children, five of whom are living: Addie (wife of Guy DAMRON), Blanche, Arthur, Iva and Lofton. Mr. BIBB has an excellent farm of 300 acres, which he has earned by his own efforts. He takes great interest in the cause of education, and votes the Democratic ticket.
