Subject: W.H. Hubble 1840-1860 m. daughter of Asa McFelch, possibly
Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2005 11:36:12 -0800 (PST)
Would like to correspond with a descendant of Wilson H. Hubble who is shown on the 1840 census:
1840 United States Federal Census > Arkansas > Izard > Blue Mountain
1 male under 5 (1835-1840) Asa McFeltch Hubble b ca 1835
1 male 5-9 (1831-1835) John Hubble b ca 1832
1 male 10-14 (1826-1830) Jackson Hubble b ca 1830, out of home in 1850
1 male 20-29 (1811-1820) Wilson Hubble born ca 1811
1 female under 5 (1835-1840) Cynthia Jane Hubble b ca 1840
1 female 5-9 (1831-1835) Rhoda Hubble b ca 1832
1 female 10-14 (1826-1830) unidentified daughter Hubble , out of home in 1850
1 female 20-29 (1811-1820) daughter of Mcfeltch??
Am very interested in the Asa McFeltch Hubble b ca 1835. For many years I had thought this was Asa McFelch son of Asa and Sarah Yoakum McFelch, serving out of home. But lately have decided that this census shows his name to be Asa McFeltch Hubble and NOT Asa McFeltch. Thus the only explanation I can come up with is that Wilson Hubble married Asa McFeltch/Melch's daughter and then named her son after her father.
Studying the census it appears that Wilson Hubble had three marriages. As the children show that their mother's was born in different states and the age of the last wife was too young to be the mother of several of the children.
It could be possible that Wilson and Unnamed McFelch Hubble were the parents of Rhoda Hubble, John Hubble, Asa McFeltch Hubble, Cynthia Jane Hubble and Nancy Evline Hubble. If you are a descendant of any of these people and could shed some light on who the mother was, please contact me.
The census information from his oldest son, Jackson, indicates that his mother (Jackson's) was born in NC. Asa, and John (twin to Rhoda) both list their's as having been born AR. Hubble's wife in 1850, Elizabeth, was 29, or born ca 1821, and obviously not old enough to have been the mother of Rhoda, John, and Asa McFeltch, but would have been 19 at the birth of Cynthia, (but as Cynthia was already born in 1840, and the "wife". or oldest female in 1840 was born before 1820, then I suspect that Cynthia also was a child of the wife before Elizabeth).
We know that Asa McFelch and wife Sarah Yoakum were married by 1815 and living in the same area. The couple had a daughter Malinda McFelch born in 1816 who married George Washington Wolf. The next child that we know of born to the couple was Ann Jane McFelch born 1824 and married to James M. Wolf. There could have been children bron between 1816 and 1824 that we do NOT know of that would fit the age bracket necessary to have been the wife of Wilson Hubble.
Would be very appreciative of any help you could provide me. Dorothy Boynton
