I took a break from painting to respond since I have had a long interest in this branch of the family. We (the Hubbell Family Historical Society) have put a lot of effort into identifying this family. Still there are uncertainties. This is the result:

Jonathan Hubble Jr s/o Ithamar & Demaris (Lewis) "in MO by 1798" (Cape Girardeau), Yell co 1816 Pope co AR by 1820, identified as s/o Ithamar in pre‑1803 Indian mission record, by 1782?‑before 1850; issue (by a 1st wife, order and dates uncertain):
1. Jonathan c1810‑?
2. Joel C. c1810‑? .
3. James C. 1817‑14 Sep 1865. .
4. Anna c1819 AR‑? mar William Eckerman 19 Dec 1830/1 by JP, of Yell co.
5. Ebenezer II? c1819/21‑? .
6. John Marshall c1820‑? .
7. James Madison c1820‑c1860. .
8. William J. c1823 (ae21 at mar)‑? mar Ester Ann McClyed 16 Dec1844 Yell co, c1826‑? Of Yell co c1835.
9. Isham c1825 AR‑before 1860 AR. .
Perhaps mar 2d ?Elizabeth Riley 1846 Yell co, or Jonathan did, when called Jinuttine. The book Things in Heaven & Earth by Thomas G Alexander mentions a baptism to the Mormon faith of Jonathan Hubbel & wife of Scott co AR c1836. The 1833 Scott co AR census lists Jonathan between 40-50 years of age and Elizabeth Riley is listed in the 1840 Scott co AR census alone with children.
