Nice to hear from you again! Your input is always welcome.
|Lynn Marie Vint||Earl Hubbman at Salem Lutheran Cemetery|
First, I want to thank you for your kind words. They were certainly appreciated!
I have been working to improve my memorial for your cousin, Earl, since hearing from you. I have incorporated your information in the bio and can add more if you have additional facts about him that would help me to personalize it more. The best and easiest way to send info to me is via the Edit tab on his memorial.
I have to admit that I am a bit puzzled by the spelling of the surname. As you know, it's definitely Hubbman on the stone. There is a photo of his parents' headstone on Find A Grave, and they also have it spelled with one n. So often, names that originally ended in "mann" were changed to "man" by younger generations. With that in mind, I was surprised to see that Earl's parents also spelled it Hubbman.
I located Earl's obituary and found him on the Social Security Death Index as well. Both sources spelled his name Hubbman with one n. His sister's obituary gives her maiden name as Hubbman. By the way, I sent link numbers and dates to the owner of her memorial, and she is now linked to her parents and siblings.
I'm sure you have gone through the on-line Missouri death certificates and know that one of Earl's brothers is listed as Hubbman and the other as Hubbmann.
The baptismal entries for two of Earl's sons in the Salem Lutheran Church records do spell the surname Hubbmann. However, those records were originally handwritten and do contain many, many spelling errors, so I would say that they could not be considered a very reliable spelling reference.
After much deliberation, I decided to leave the surname on the Find A Grave memorial as it appears on the stone. However, I did add a note regarding the alternate spelling.
Again, permit me to say that it was a pleasure to hear from you. Please feel free to let me know if there are any corrections or changes you would like me to consider now or in the future. I am always open to input from family members, including cousins.
It is my goal to create memorials that are both informative and a fitting tribute to our lost loved ones.
