Myron Hubbell tended the mill at West Cornwall and was working at Gold’s Mill on Cream Hill Road in 1862 when he enlisted with the 19th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry as a musician. Myron died from chronic dysentery and typhoid fever in the Regimental Hospital at Alexandria, Virginia on November 24, 1862.

Hubbell married Laura Baldwin (1817-after 1880), daughter of lawyer Birdsey Baldwin, in 1860. Laura was a school teacher in her 40s at the time of their marriage. After the death of her husband and her parents soon after, Laura lived alone for the rest of her life.
