Hubble/Hubbell Tid Bits
On Mother's Side


Chuck

The following information was received from Kat Helmandollar, who is related to the McCoy/Hubble families:

"Velva (Mary McCoy Helfrich's sister) told me years ago that Carl Hubble was a famous baseball player and he was a relative.  My grand nephew was here and I told him about this.  He is one of those rare and fortunate people with a photographic memory. 
He said "Carl Hubble struck out Babe Ruth, Joe Cronin and Lou Gehrig."

Future Yankee Manager in succession at first All Star Games 1933
Was a great Hall of Famer."

CARL OWEN HUBBELL
Baseball Hall of Famer
June 22, 1903 
November 21, 1988


Mary McCoy/Helfrich and Carl Owen Hubbell were related, as Mary's Mother, Nannie L. Virginia Hubbell/McCoy,  was a member of this Hubbell family.  Carl and Mary had the same 8th Great Granddad, who was Richard Hubbell, Sr. 
 

For Chuck, it would mean that Carl and Chuck had the same 9th Great Granddad. 
Carl's burial info is on the McCoy cemetery pages.

Carl is most noted for his feats in the 1934 All Star Game where he struck out five Hall of Fame players in a row including Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, Babe Ruth, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin.  He is credited with developing a new pitch called the "screwball",  which has the opposite movement from a curve ball.

Per Hhubble@aol.com:

"Jacqueline, the Carl Owen Hubbell line descends from Richard (our immigrant ancestor) son Richard, Jr. and his wife Hanna Swilliway. Your line descends from Richard (our immigrant ancestor) son Samuel Sr. and his 2nd wife, Temperence Preston. There are eight generations to Carl, and eight to Nannie Hubbell. Regards, Hilbert"
