The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883. page 729, White Post Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.
"LEW W. HUBBELL was born in Dearborn County, Indiana, August 11, 1849, and is one of six children born to DAVID and FRANCES (WOOD) HUBBELL. These children were named SYLVIA (deceased), LEWIS, JAMES (deceased), CYRUS, EDWARD, and JOHN. The father was born in Ohio in 1826, came to this county, and died here in January, 1879. When LEW W. HUBBELL was six or seven years old, he was brought by his father to Salem Township, this county, where he resided about eleven years; since then he has made this township his home. He was married, November 14, 1875, to MARY E. BYERS, who has borne him four children - FRANK, FANNY C., EARLE SCOTT and JESSE. FRANK is deceased. MR. HUBBELL now lives six miles south of Medarysville, and has a fertile and well cultivated farm, on which he chiefly raises corn and wheat, and, of stock, sheep and hogs. He is a Mason and a member of the Baptist Church, and he has probably done more toward the building-up of the public prosperity than any man of his age in the township."
