find out where on brattle street his house had been, then about he’d had a bunch of houses built for harvard there on that west side i think

times machine dot nytimes dot com slash timesmachine slash 1897 slash 12 slash 12 slash 102406632 dot pdf == his obit. I think he passed at his “Twin Oaks” estate outside of WDC, his wife being from NYC, but I didn’t catch how he was there and passed, unless he was in a hospital there waiting to pass. == Wiki has nyc he passed at but this nytimes obit says he passed at home outside of wdc. I have to check about the connections with the Grossman family. There’s that monument in wdc, hubbard bell grossman pillot.

Here, I think that this was his church in Washington, that the obit mentions, and-or there’s a write-up at find a grave that mentions the church but I can’t find the rev. dr. hallin mentioned in conjunction: == misspelled, it’s rev. Teunis S. Hamlin DD

Mabel Gardiner (Hubbard) Bell (b. November 15, 1857 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, d. January 3, 1923 in Washington, D.C.)
Founder of education association, suffragist
Mabel Hubbard was raised in Cambridge on Brattle Street. Her father, Gardiner Greene Hubbard who had a Boston law practice, helped establish a city water works in Cambridge, was a founder of the Cambridge Gas Co., and later organized a Cambridge to Boston trolley system. Between ages four and five, Mabel became deaf as a result of scarlet fever. Her father founded the first American school for the deaf at Chelmsford, Mass. and served as trustee of the Clarke School for the deaf, which Mabel attended.
After Mabel went to Germany in her teens to study chemistry and the German language, she returned to Cambridge at the age of sixteen. Alexander Graham Bell had taught at the Clarke School and was then professor of vocal physiology and elocution at Boston University. He was hired by Mabel’s father as a private tutor. Hubbard was also financing Bell’s experiments on the telephone and helped organize his company. Mabel and Alexander became romantically involved, and at first her parents opposed the marriage objecting to the age disparity and fearing that their children would be deaf (since Bell’s mother was congenitally deaf), but the two were engaged in 1875. In 1877, the couple married. They had two sons who died in infancy and two daughters who lived into adulthood.
Mabel supported her husband in his work, notably in his interest in aviation (the Aerial Experiment Association). In 1910, she became a strong supporter of women’s rights and marched in the women’s suffrage national convention in Washington in 1910. During World War I, she sponsored benefits to raise money for the Red Cross and fund lifeboats for the US Navy. She later founded the Montessori Education Association and became its president. Later she opened a school in Washington, D.C. and started a magazine, Freedom for the Child.
She died on January 3, 1923 in Washington D.C. and was buried on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada where the Bells had a summer home. Many of her letters to and from her husband are in the Bell Family Papers in the Library of Congress.

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
