HARVEY S. HUBBELL, farmer; P.O. Kilbourne; born in Knox Co. in September, 1817; eldest of a family of three children, whose parents, Preston and Betsey (McEwen) Hubbell, were natives of Connecticut, and emigrated to this State in 1817, locating in Bloomfield Township, Knox Co., there being but five families in the township at the time. They entered land there, which his mother still occupies. Harvey's father died when he was 4 years of age, and was then raised up by his mother, until he was 16 years of age, when he started to learn the cabinetmaker's trade, but, his health failing, he abandoned it; he worked out by the month some time.

His education was such as the days of log schoolhouses afforded. In 1836, he went to Kentucky, where he lived eight years and taught school some of the time. At the age of 21, was married to Laurana Hitt, by whom he had ten children, nine living.

Daniel Hubbell was born on November 2, 1844 in Mason County, Kentucky and then moved with his family as stated above. His family was living in Center Village, Delaware County, Ohio when he enlisted in Company G on July 23, 1862. He was the fourth oldest of ten children, three boys and seven girls.

According to family tradition, Daniel was a drummer boy who died in Andersonville Prison from starvation or disease. This is confirmed by the regimental roster, which states that Daniel was captured in action near Knoxville on November 18, 1863 and died in Andersonville on October 18, 1864.
