SIBERIA (f or m): Presumably, from the place name [now a vast portion of the Russian Federation encompassing almost all of Northern Asia]. Siberia A. (Scott) Campbell, daughter of Timothy Scott, d. Lempster, N.H., 2 Aug. 1885, age 68. The 1900 U.S. census enumerated eighteen people (both male and female) with the first name Siberia — from Mr. Siberia Ott (b. 1822 in New York) in Aiken, South Carolina, to Siberia Gonzalez, a baby girl (born 1899 in Texas) in Medina, Texas.
