Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert died the other day. He was the first person to use the word "reggae" in a song. He's a notable, but I didn't find him on WikiTree. I'm just making sure I'm not missing something before creating a profile under the Black Heritage project.

There are a couple of unlisted Hibberts, might be one of them.
Thanks Dave for your post!

Someone created a profile and orphaned it: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hibbert-869

I hope you can adopt, Dave. Since Toots was Jamaican, he doesn't fit in the US Black Heritage project?

Yeah, I forgot to notice he wasn't American. Oooops ... I'm just glad someone showed him some love.
