The 1900 hurricane that hit Galveston had an effect at Duke, the house in which Mr. Hubbard lived, on the John R. Fenn's farm, was partly wrecked, and the family ran out and sought another place of refuge, Mrs Hubbard with the two-month old baby in her arms, and Mr Hubbard taking care of the children who could walk. A tree blew down on the mother, breaking her back, but she clung to the child and had it in her arms when rescued. She was fatally hurt, however, and died within a month.

Her descendents Chelsea and Makayla live at Bay City, Texas today.
