Charles George Hubbard I, was born 14 Feb 1887 at Mt. Vernon, Knox county, Ohio to Henry (DeForrest) Hubbard and Alice (Madalynn) Matheney. He was the youngest of approximately 18 children according to family rumors. Circa 1890, when Charles George was about 3 years old, he was separated from both

arrived at Kansas City on an orphan train. Charles George and his brother, Fred, age
5 at that time had been together, but had become separated.
Daniel Harader, who had been in the 1889 Land Run at Guthrie, Logan county, Oklahoma picked Charles George Hubbard up at Kansas City. The Haraders
wanted to adopt Charles George, but couldn't because both of his parents were
living. Daniel and his wife, Kate (Catherine) reared Charles George as their son in the
Guthrie, Crescent, Kingfisher and Hennessey areas. At that time, Charles George
began using the name George C. Harader, which he continued to go by until about 1906 or 1907.
Charles "George Harader" Hubbard married Cora M. Tibbits about 1905, probably at Guthrie. On 15 October 1905, their daughter, Dorothy May "Harader" Hubbard
was born at 2124 Belfountain, Kansas City, Missouri where Cora's mother lived. About 1907, a son, Elmo E. Hubbard was born, but died in infancy. Between the birth of Dorothy May and Elmo E., Charles "George Harader" Hubbard began using his birth surname of Hubbard. Sometime after Elmo's death 25 September 1908, Cora M. and Charles George divorced. The Haraders reared Dorothy May Hubbard as a foster child. Cora moved to Kansas City, Missouri and played piano for silent movies. She later remarried and had other children.
