anecdote Jun 1, 1970 (age 77)
Dear Karen:
"I will answer your questions to the best of my ability. I got the
information on Giles Hubbard mostly from my mother [Julia Edna Hubbard
Dillon]. She was next to the youngest in her family. Barton Hubbard
was the youngest. Also some information from the Hubbard Bible.
Grandpa Hubbard [Giles] was born in 1817 - died in 1876. Those are
the dates on the monument in the cemetery. November 6 was Election
Day. He was the old-style gentleman (they wore shawls in those days).
They lived on a large farm, which now is almost the center of town in
Mt. Clemens. Also a high top silk hat. After voting he strolled out
to the barn to see the horses (my thoughts are wandering) and was
stricken with a heart attack, and died almost immediately.
"He was a high strung, nervous man -- always afraid that something was
going to happen to the children, a music lover, and enjoyed hearing my
mother play the piano for him. She was very talented, even as a
little girl. My mother often tells about his death -- how they laid
him out on one of the the work tables in the barn with his shawl over
him. She was only 14 years old.
"Their stay in Chicago was only a short time -- that is, a few years.
At the time of the [Chicago] fire, they packed up and came back to Mt.
Clemens. It was the time of horse and buggys. Things moved more
slowly. They had what nowadays we would call an apartment. They
called it a "flat." It must have been large though, for most of the
time a good many of the relatives lived with them. 'Berwin,' I
believe, is the part of Chicago where they lived. In one of the
Macomb history books there is a little piece about Giles Hubbard. I
have read it .... The only thing I remember was that he was asked to
run for Senator but he refused. Lincoln Avenue, where we always
lived, had a row of maple trees down the center that he had planted.
That street formerly was the lane that led to the barn, and a
beautiful street to live on in later years."
(Letter dated June 1, 1970, from Mary Dillon Peltier, granddaughter of
Giles Hubbard, to her great-niece, Karen Winfield.)
