According to Martha Stebbins Kibler of the Stebbins Ancestral Society, Joseph Stebbins was the half third cousin, once removed, of Horatio Stebbins. That sounds weird, but the "half" is there because they're descended from the same man by two different wives. The "removed" part comes from the fact that they're in different generations.Please note: Sarah Eliza Langdon was the second wife of Calvin Stebbins.
Joseph Stebbins lived in Clinton, NY in 1831, and was one of founders of the Clinton Liberal Institute. Horatio Stebbins was born on August 8, 1821 in South Wilbraham (now Hampden), Massachusetts. Frederick Bee was born in Clinton, NY in 1825. Mr. Bee's funeral was officiated by Horatio Stebbins. The Clinton Liberal Institute was a Universalist institution. Horatio Stebbins was a Unitarian Universalist minister. I could NOT find a direct link between Horatio Stebbins and the Clinton Liberal Institute.

Frederick Bee lived in a house on the Hamilton College campus in 1841.
Hamilton College is located in Clinton, NY.

On September 10, 1848, Reverend Henry Burroughs, Jr., Rector of St. John's in Northampton, Massachusetts, married Louise Smith and Fayette Clapp. Fayette was from Pawtucket,Rhode Island and Louise was from Amherst, Massachusetts. Louise Smith Clapp wrote under the pseudonym of Dame Shirley during the California Gold Rush.
