Obit published in a Seattle newspaper:


Marcus R. Hubbard, 72 years old, retired Seattle detective lieutenant, died yesterday at his home, after an illness of a week. Funeral arrangements are in charge of Bonney-Watson's.
Mr. Hubbard, a native of Rudd, Iowa, lived in Seattle thirty-seven years. He joined the Seattle Police Department as a patrolman in 1898. He was appointed acting detective January 13, 1903, and was made a permanent detective January 1, 1909. He was retired in 1922 as a detective lieutenant, after working on many famous cases, including the case of Harry Tracy, notorious outlaw.
Mr. Hubbard was a member of the Woodmen of the World and of the Police Relief Association. Survivors are his widow, Mrs. Helen Hubbard; two sons, Thomas E. and Robert R. Hubbard, four brothers and two sisters.
Mr. Hubbard served continuously in the detective division except for thirteen months' retirement in 1907 and 1908 when he went on a ranch to recuperate from a breakdown. He never received a reprimand or suspension during his service. He and his partner, Detective Mark Freeman, sent more than 200 dangerous criminals to prison and at one time Hubbard arrested a man one hour after he had killed a woman. He served under thirteen police chiefs.
Mr. Hubbard came to the Northwest in 1895 and prospected in the Grants Pass, Or. district for two years before coming to Seattle. He was a blacksmith before he became a member of the Police Department.
He married first on 1 Dec 1886 in Ruthven, Palo Alto, Iowa to Margaretta Beatty. They had two sons: Robert Reed and Thomas Edward Hubbard. He later married Helen E. Rush, before 1920.
