Franklin W. Hubbard

Franklin W. Hubbard was the son of Watson and Georgina A. (Holcombe) Hubbard. He died when he was only two years of age, on February 23, 1856. He was buried in the family lot at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. In a biographical sketch in THE HISTORY OF THE WESTERN RESERVE, we learn that Watson Hubbard had extensive interests in the lumber business in both Michigan and Sandusky. Along the top of the tombstone of Franklin W. Hubbard is written Frank, and a lovely dove adorns the front of his tomebstone. I am sure that Franklin's parents had hopes of young Franklin growing up and having a successful life, but those dreams were cut short by his death in 1856.
