     Honora Phelps was born circa 1787 at Otis, Berkshire Co., MA.1,2 She was the daughter of Isaac Phelps and Honora Stevens.1 Honora Phelps married Barnes Hubbard on 9 July 1807 at Otis, Berkshire Co., MA.2 Honora Phelps died on 18 November 1822.2

Honorah grew up in East Otis and met Barnes Hubbard who worked at his father’s rake factory at Spectacle Pond near Sandisfield, MA. They fell in love and were married at Otis by Rev. Joseph L. MIlls, minister of the Becket Congregational Church. Family lore has it that they were the handsomest couple ever to be married at Otis Congregational Church. As newlyweds Barnes and Hanorah lived at Colebrook, CT where their first 5 children were born.

The New England winter of 1816 was a cold and harsh one for residents. The Hubbards decided to move west to Ohio. Barnes sold his CT property and purchased land at Lenox, Ohio, from the Connecticut Land Company. The journey west was made by covered wagon drawn by a team or oxen. For six weeks Barnes, Hanorah, Harvey, Polly and a family friend, Miles Ramsom followed forest trails and the shores of Lake Erie to reach friends at Amboy, then called Salem and now part of Conneaut, Ohio. Miles Ramsom told stories for years about how he carried Harvey and Polly on his back much of the way.

The family liked the Amboy area and decided to settle there. Barnes sold the Lenox property and purchased land that is still in the Hubbard family today. They build a two room log cabin and Barnes made rakes and tools there too. Later he built a tool factory and became the neighborhood dentist. The Hubbards still possess a ferocious looking turnkey that Barnes used to extract teeth. The turnkey had a wooden handle and a wicked looking hook which was just the ticket for pulling pioneer teeth. A whiskey bottle was kept on the mantle to use for easing pain. Four more children were born.

Sally Phelps, sister of Hanorah came west to live with the family and help care for the children. Within a year of Honorah's death Barnes married Sally and they produced four children of their own.

The year 1826 saw Barnes and Sally building a two story brick house with a garret that must have been fine for the times. The bricks were made on the site. A chimney was placed at each end of the house. When the wind blew from the east the fire had to be in the west fireplace and when from the west only the east fireplace would draw. Sally told her granddaughter Nora Hubbard Vosburg that she had to stop in the midst of cooking meals to shift eh fire from one fireplace to the other when the wind changed directions.

The Hubbard's prospered as Ohio became more civilized. In the 1840's Barnes and Sally went back East to visit their families. Sally's father, Isaac Phelps, was about ninety at the time and had become senile and didn't know her. How sad that must have been for her, but a wonderful time they must have had visiting relatives who still lived at Otis, Sandisfield and Colebrook. 3
