Oxford Cemetery holds several Hubbells

There is a timely article featuring some Hubbell graves in the Oxford, Connecticut cemetery. http://oxford-ct.patch.com/articles/volunteers-needed-for-historic-cemetery-clean-up  It is entitled “Volunteers Needed for Historic Cemetery Clean Up” and it is seeking people in the area to come to the cemetery on April 30 to help clean up the cemetery before the Memorial Day weekend, particularly in preparation for the 200th Anniversary of the war of 1812 and the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War.  Hubbells lie among those veterans, and one of their headstones is featured in the article, that of Frederick W. Hubbell who served in Company B of the 20th Regiment and served at Gettysburg. To view the photo and read the article, visit the site here: Click here: Volunteers Needed for Historic Cemetery Clean Up – Oxford, CT Patch If you live in the area close enough to be able to participate you might want to gather your Hubbell cousins and show up at 0900 hours and lend a hand to salute our veterans.

On a related subject, you may have noticed on our website that we now have a page for you to submit photos of Hubbell headstones and information about the Hubbell for whom the stone was placed. We ask that you submit as many as you can, and we will add them as a permanent feature on the web site. Please contact me if you have any questions about sending them, I will be happy to help.
