Mary Thompson was born in Maine about 1809. She married Ebenezer Hubbard on December 27, 1836 in Buckfield, Maine. The couple had two daughters: Martha Hubbard Johnston and Ellen Hubbard Skinner. They also adopted their nephew, Ebenezer H. Hubbard. They were pioneers who arrived in Sheboygan in 1847 and Winnebago County in 1847 where in partnership with L. P. Sheldon, her husband built the third lumber mill in Oshkosh. They were burned out in 1855. In 1874 he purchased a sawmill in Florida and vast tracts of pine lands, which were operated by his son Ebenezer H. Hubbard. In 1877 he erected a mansion on the edge of town and owned a farm in Section 35 Algoma Township. Mary died on January 17, 1891.
