My GGG-Grandfather Robert A. Hubbard, who was born about 1815 in the Pendelton District, South Carolina, was married to Lucinda SMITH in Anderson County, SC in 1841. Robert Hubbard was a shoemaker by trade. Robert and Lucinda Smith later moved to Gordon Co. Georgia. In 1850 he is shown to have three children, Warren age 5, Lenard Franklin age 4, and Caledonia age 3, he had another child Jane latter born.

On two census records Robert A. shows up as HUBBERT and his son Warran is registered in the Civil War as HUBBERT, then later we see them as HUBBARD.

His son Lenard Franklin Hubbard married Mary Bartlett, (she was the daughter of William Blake Bartlett and Catherine Williams) in Newton County Georgia. And around 1868 the Hubbard and Bartlett families came to Etowah Co. Alabama.

Roberts son Lenard Franklin HUBBARD settled there but Robert after the loss of his wife Lucinda SMITH never seemed to settle down and went to Texas to visit family? His daughter is living in Lamar County, Texas in 1880 and Robert is shown living with her. He seems to travel back and forth between Texas and Alabama several times. Somewhere around 1890 Robert Hubbard went to Texas- but never got there and no one ever knew what happened to him?

Many of Robert A. HUBBARD and Luncinda SMITH's decedents still live in the Etowah County, Alabama area today.

We can find no record of Robert A. HUBBARD's or Lucinda SMITH's past or their parents.

It just appears that Robert A. HUBBARD and Lucinda SMITH just fell from the sky and appeared one day in Anderson County, South Carolina. There are several SMITH and HUBBARD families in this Pendelton District, but I have been unable to make a connection to any of them.

There were several SMITH's and HUBBARD's and BARTLETT's from South Carolina, that also came to the Gordon, Cherokee and Hall Counties, Georgia area. Any information sny one may have on the SMITH or HUBBARD and BARTLETT families would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully someone out there will have the missing link to help us locate our Ancestor's family. Thanks for your help, Danny Skillman, Altoona, Alabama, E-mail-- dj4skillman@gmail.com and skilled@hopper.net
