Atchison County Kansas Bio Sketches 


Lewis H. HUBBARD, farmer and stockman, of Kapioma Township, Atchison, County, was born March 13, 1872, in Cass County, Missouri. He is a son of Simeon and Mary Ann (PENCE) Hubbard, who were the parents of the following children: William, Kapioma Township, Atchison County, Kansas; Lillie O'CONNER, widow, Muscotah, Kan.; Cora ROUTH, Kapioma Township; Lewis, subject of this sketch and two children who died in infancy. The father of Lewis Hubbard was born March 10, 1840, in Indiana and grew up as a farmer, following that occupation after coming to Kansas in 1874. He settled near Muscotah and rented land for a period of four years and during that time he saved his money carefully. When he came to Kansas he was without funds, but at the end of four years he had accumulated enough to enable him to buy a farm. In addition to growing his crops he fed stock and did a hustling business in that line. He is still living and resides at Muscotah, Kan. The mother of Lewis Hubbard is also living. Lewis Hubbard went to school in the Rose Valley District. He received a common school education and worked with his father on the latter's farm until 1909, when he bought a farm of his own and became his own manager. The place consisted of 160 acres of fine tillable soil and is located in section 16, southeast quarter of Muscotah Township. Mr. Hubbard has devoted considerable attention to improving the appearance of his farm and has constructed a fine seven-room cottage and has built a large barn to provide shelter for his stock and hay. He keeps the best Jersey cows and milks eight to twelve of them for the dairy. Mr. Hubbard is a stockholder in the farmers' grain elevator at Muscotah, Kan.

In 1897 Mr. Hubbard married Anna HINKSTON, who was born May 5, 1880, in Doniphan County, Kansas. She is a daughter of Frank and Dorinda (TATE) Hinkston, who now live in Jackson County, Kansas. Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard are the parents of two children, as follows: Ethel, aged sixteen, who attends the Atchison County High School at Effingham and Leslie, aged seven, living with his parents. The daughter is also studying music and her father hopes to give her a thorough education in that subject. Mr. Hubbard is a Democrat of an independent stamp. He is a member of the Adventist Church and is a deacon in that denomination. If there is one thing that Mr. Hubbard takes pride in more than another it is in his children's education. He realizes the value of an education and desires that his children have every advantage of education that he can give them.
