Birth: 19 Jan 1863, Washington Township, Pennsylvania
Death: Feb 1938, San Rafael, California
Hope was born on the 22 August 1885 in Ida Grove, Iowa. She was so tiny when
she was born she would fit into a shoe box and she stayed very petite as she
grew up. She died 11 June 1954 in San Francisco, California. When her mother
was widowed, she returned to her own family and moved to Los Angeles with
them. Adda met and married Lewis Cheesman Hulbert, a commercial artist, on
August 29, 1891. Adda and Lewis had one son named Chauncey who was called
Chad. Lewis died on September 14, 1907 in Los Angeles.
Adda and son, Chad, moved to Alameda, California and resided near Hope. She
eventually moved back to Los Angeles to keep house for her brother WIlliam,
who was now a widower. She suffered a small stroke shortly after her brother
William died in 1931 and moved to Larkspur, CA to be with her daughter, Hope.
Adda was on the plump side, but she had a certain elegant look and always
wore beautifully finished clothes. She was an accomplished seamtress, quilter
and did lovely embroidery and various handwork. She read her Christian
Science Bible faithfully.
