Gayle Neuhaus Julius Hubbard was born in New York, Oct. 11, 1831. His mother was born in Conn...Family Search.

His father's ancestors were from memory

Another Julius M. Hubbard was also born on that date in NY. That Julius moved to Wisconsin...Family Search.

My Julius and his family moved to Sangamon County, Illinois when he was young...from his obituary.

Julius went to California during the gold strike...from his obituary.

I cannot track him or his family from his birth until his marriage, June 5, 1859 in Kendall County, Illinois to Harriet Hopkins. Marriage licenses at that time did not include parents names.

After marrying, they moved to Exira, Audubon County, Iowa where their children were born. They were William Clark, Hattie M.-died young, buried Oakfield, Iowa, Julia Mae (Franklin Strain), Charles Eugene, James Edgar, George Harper-a gambler, shot to death in Colorado, buried there, Jennie Myra (Albert Rice) and John Bradford-died young, buried Iowa.

By 1884 Julius moved his family to Knox County, Nebraska. Here his wife died and is buried. He, then, went to Montana, where his children, Julia, Charles and James were living. William remained in Boyd County, Nebraska and Jennie in Valley, Nebraska. Jennie later moved to Portland, Oregon.

Julius died and is buried in Montana.

Family Search shows his name as Hubbard, so he did not change the spelling of his name. Why are there no census or other records of his parents?

Great, Great Grandpa Julius, I really need to discover who your parents were and if you had siblings.

His siblings were William Clark, Harriet-died young, Julia Mae (Strain), Charles Eugene, James Edgar, Jennie Myra (Rice) and John Bradford-died young.

His grandparents were William Clark and Ruth Maria Harper Hopkins...Find A Grave-Illinois

His great grandparents were Oliver (who was murdered) and Tryphena Stone Harper, his great, great grandparents, Judge George and Ruth Woolcott Harper...Find A Grave, New York.

Before 1884 the Hubbard family moved to Knox County, Nebraska in the Creighton and Winnetoon area.

"Sunday morning, Charles E. Hubbard, residing north of town, received a telegram from Las Animas, Colorado, to the effect that his youngest brother, George H. Hubbard died there that morning. Mr. Hubbard left for Las Animas Tuesday morning to attend the funeral and burial which took place at Las Animas, Thursday.

George Hubbard lived at Creighton for a number of years and was raised in Knox county, where he was well known. He has been in the west the greater part of the time for the last eight years. He leaves a father, three brothers and two sisters."
...The People's News, Creighton, NE-November 1903

George Harper Hubbard is buried in La Animas Cemetery, Bent County, Colorado. His gravestone is inscribed with his name, dates and that he was the son of J.M. & Harriet Hubbard...#59810931 Find A Grave

"George was a gambler and shot to death in Bent County, Colorado."
...1959 family tree by Mary Jane Switzer

I have been researching for quite sometime to discover the details of my Great Uncle George's death. Wouldn't there be a local Colorado newspaper that covered a gambler being shot to death?

...I have received my Great, Great Uncle George Harper Hubbard's death certificate. Family legend was just that...a legend. He may have gambled, but he died of ulcerative laryngitis after a three week illness.
