ELWIN R. DIBBLE - Among the well known morticians of Binghamton, the name of Dibble is well identified with that profession. Elwin R. Dibble, who is now associated in the firm of Cornell Dibble, has followed in the footsteps of his father who came here in 1887 from Pennsylvania, and established the original Dibble undertaking business.

Elwin R. Dibble was born in Harrison Valiey, Pennsylvania, March 8, 1884, son of Charles and Alice E. (Benedict) Dibble. As stated above, the elder Dibble came here in 1887. For thirty five years he followed the undertaking business, in which he was succeeded at his death in 1916 by his son, Elwin B. The son's education was obtained in the public schools of Binghamton, and Eckels College of Embalming, in Philadelphia, and in 1903 he was taken into his father's business, whose establishment was on Chenango street. In 1920 Elwin R. Dibble joined in partnership with W. T. Cornell, which partnership has continued to the present time. The firm's place of business is located at No. 68 Henry street, where they have a well appointed building and chapel.

Mr. Dibbie is connected with various associations and societies of his profession. Fraternally he is a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, and St. Mark's Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons. He and his family attend the Methodist church. Mr. Dibble married Elizabeth E. Reynolds, daughter of Dennison and Elizabeth (Goss) Reynolds, of Binghamton. They are the parents of a daughter, Ruth.
