HUBBLE Family--Cramahe Township

Mary (Polly) HUBBLE, was born 2 Jul 1826, at Cramahe, Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada. She died 4 Mar 1912 in St Clair Co Mi, and is buried at the Williams Family Cemetery, Sec 1, Columbus Twp, St Clair Co, Mi. After surviving a 300 mile trip across frozen Canada in the winter of 1844, Polly helped her husband clear the land for their new home in St Clair Co, Mi, and then assumed the role of wife and mother in their home. She outlived her husband by 28 years and served as the head of the household for many years. Polly married Elias Calvin WILLIAMS, 25 Jun 1842 in Canada and gave issue to nine children.


Polly's father, Abel Jay HUBBLE, was born in 1774 at Old Farfield, CT. He died Aug 1859 at St Clair Co, Mi., and is buried at Williams Family Cemetery, Sect. 1, Columbus Twp, St Clair Co, Mi. The cemetery is overgrown with brush today, with many of the stones broken and tipped over. Abel Jay moved to the State of New York and married a lady by the name of Miss BURR.

Their seven children include: David, Sam, Phebe Ann, Loretta, Nathan, Smith, and Laura HUBBLE

After the death of his first wife, Abel Jay with his seven children moved to Cramahe Twp in Ontario. Here he married secondly Ann [REDDICK] GAFFIELD, daughter of Phillip REDDICK, Loyalist from Ameliasburgh, according to Orders of Council, 22 October 1840.. Ann had two children from her first marriage to James GAFFIELD, James and Sally.

Abel Jay HUBBLE and Ann [REDDICK] GAFFIELD started housekeeping with 9 children, 7 Hubbles and 2 Gaffields. There were born to this union 7 more children: Nancy; Rebecca, who died 3 Jul 1904; Irene; Reddick, who was born 23 Feb 1821; Hiram , born 30 Apr 1824, died 13 May 1913; Diantha, and Mary (Polly) HUBBLE.

Abel Jay, his wife Ann and several of his children with their families moved to the Little Canada Settlement south of Smith's Creek in St Clair Co Mi. near the farm occuped by their daughter Polly and husband Elias C WILLIAMS. Some of them are buried in the Williams Family Cemetery, Sec 1 of Columbia Twp, St Clair Co, Mi.


Polly's grandparents, Abel HUBBELL, born 1747/8, and his wife came to Old Farfield, CT from Ireland. He fought in the Revolutionary War and was sent in an open boat to Long Island N Y to watch the British Army. He told of looking in the bottom of the boat and seeing the blood and bullets after a fight during the War.

His children include: Abel Jay mentioned earlier; Eli, buried at Darlington, Durham Co, Canada; Sam, buried at Darlington, Durham Co, Canada; John, buried in "an Eastern State"; Aaron, who lived in Sacketts Harbor, N. Y. He shot the mail boys horse and robbed the mail during the Revolutionary War. He never dared come back. Told the mailboy to tell them, "Aaron Hubble is carrying the mail tonight"d., These sketches were given to Etta HUNT- HUBLLE by Hiram HUBBLE and have not been verified in history up to 1937. This not very logical as Abel Jay would have been 9 yrs old when the Revolutionary War was over?; and Ruth HUBBLE.


Abel Jay's parents are Samuel HUBBELL, bap. 1714, married to Abigail STERLING. Little is known of this generation.


Samuel's father was also called Samuel. Samuel HUBBELL, ca 1670, married Elizabeth BURR.


We know that the father of this senior Samuel is Richard HUBBALL/ HUBBELL, who was baptized on 22 Jan 1625/6, and married twice: 1) Elizabeth MEIGS, Children:? 2) Elizabeth GAYLORD, Children:


Richard HUBBELL, bap. 2 Jun 1598, married Sarah WAKEMAN, Children: Richard HUBBALL/HUBBELL above.


Finally, the father of this Richard is also called Richard HUBBALL/HUBBALD, who was baptized 23 Feb 1567/8, and married Elizabeth COWLRICKE.
