    The Stafford family in Port Hope were very close friends of the Hubbards and the Phelps, as well as the Parcell Family. Frances Stafford was the maid of honor for Annabel’s wedding. The Stafford’s and the Hubbards exchanged visits frequently staying in each others homes over the weekends over time. Hubbard added the second story wing to the House of Seven Gables prior to Annabelle’s wedding. Over time our family continued close association with Dr. and Mrs Phelps. A couple of times my father and I were guests of the Phelps for lunch following with a game of golf with Dr. Phelps. Our relationship continued with Charlie and Frances over time until they passed away. Charlie continued the Phellps traditions of saluting the Owl in the library and then marching around the big house followed by a social event in the yard. You mentioned the Phelps church services some which I attended as a young person.

      What a great and personal addition to this story. Does your family have any photographs of those times?
