This may certify, that my wife Sophia, has run away from me, for the truly honorable purpose of not going to Ohio; & her friends have been so friendly, or rather devilish, as to advise her to quit me; and have kept her, and the children, where I could not find them for some months.—This is therefore to forbid all persons trusting or harboring her at their peril. HENRY HUBBELL. Otsego, August 3, 1813.

COMMENT: According to the Otsego County Biographic Register, Warren Babbit (1774-1847) “was a native of Connecticut, there grew to manhood, and was married to Sally Delano [1778-1861], who was also born in that State. In 1798, accompanied by his bride, he left the old home to dwell in the forest wilds of this State, the momentous journey being made with an oxteam. He secured quite a large tract bordering on Oak Creek, and after building a log house for shelter entered bravely upon the hard pioneer task of clearing a farm and preparing the soil for cultivation. He and his good wife passed their remaining years on the farm reclaimed by so much labor from the wilderness.”
