George Stubberfield was born in the Spring of 1810, on the 10th day of May, unto George and Martha Stubberfield. He was born in the heart of England, at Sheffield Green, in Sussex. He had at least one sibling - a younger brother by the name of Henry.
Stubberfields from the Sussex area, at this time period, had a variety of occupations, including farmers, surveyors, appraisers, butlers, and sweet-sellers.
George came to America at a young age. In the Spring of 1835, in the month of April, he married Miss Edna Bishop Booth(e). Both were 24 years of age. "Edna married a Mr George Stubberfield, an Englishman out of West Bloomfield, New York."
The couple resided in New York State for a few years, Edna giving birth to Martha Lucinda (Allen)(Weaver)(1839-1916), and Ellen Godfrey (Smith)(1841-1918) in that state.
By 1842, George had moved his family to Pennsylvania, where Edna gave birth to Samuel B (1842-1923).
Their last three children were born in the State of Ohio, being Edna E.A. (1845-1871), Reuben (b.1847), (about the time Edna's mother passed away), and Eveline (b.1848). George was a farmer in Ohio.
Sometime after 1850, the Stubberfield family relocated, from Fulton, Ohio, to the Waldron, Michigan area, about 160 miles to the north and west. This event took place possibly after 1856, when Edna's father passed away in Ohio.
George and Edna lived out their remaining days in the Waldron, Michigan area, farming in this community.
In 1863, their son Samuel entered the U.S. Army as a private in the 18th Michigan Infantry, to serve in the Civil War, which he survived.
All of the couple's children that are known are buried in the Waldron cemetery, along with Edna and George, with the exception of their daughter Ellen, who moved west to Nebraska, and then traveled to Palestine, Texas to live with a daughter - she is buried there in Palestine at the Fort Sam Houston Cemetery.
Edna Bishop Booth Stubberfield died before Christmas, in 1873, 21 December, at the age of 63. George lived for many years after, and died at the age of 88, in the winter of 1899, on the 7th day of February.
They rest in peace together, at the Waldron Cemetery, in Hillsdale County, Michigan, for all eternity.
