Description
The Hubon Family Papers contain largely correspondence to San Diego pioneer Frederick Hubon (1827-1882). The papers include correspondence from three generations of Hubons, with some correspondence from other relatives and friends. The correspondence touches upon major events of the nineteenth century, including California's "gold rush" and the Civil War, as well as personal Hubon family concerns. The papers include a small amount of miscellaneous materials such as a carte-de-visite photographic portrait of Frederick's mother, Sarah Allen Livingston Hubon; genealogical information; and a poem by Frederick's daughter, Fannie Hubon Stedman.
Background
The Hubon Family Papers provide a glimpse into the lives of three generations of San Diego pioneer Frederick Hubon's (1827-1882) family. The earliest history of the family's migration from France to America is unclear but the family's only reporter, Frederick's niece, Emily Hubon, said their branch of the family lived in Baltimore, Maryland, in the late 1700s.
