George H Hubbard
Born Hopkinton, June 8, 1823. Died Lansingburg, NY, January 19, 1876 Master of Harmony Lodge, No. 38, in 1853. In 1855 his name is not among its members. From 1858 to 1864, inclusive, he is stated, in the Grand Lodge proceedings, to be a member of Lafayette Lodge, No. 41. From 1865 to 1870, inclusive, he is stated to be a member of St. Peter’s Lodge, No. 31. But, the annual returns of these last two Lodges, for those years do not have his name in their lists of members. Our forced conclusion is that from 1855 until his death, this including the year he was Grand Master, he was not a member of any Lodge. Physician. Regimental Surgeon, Second Regiment, Civil War. Later made Brigadier Surgeon.
