History of Hupper family at St. George Historical Society
St. George — Cousins Lorna Hupper Grey and Marvon Hupper will share their memories and research on the Hupper family at the June 28 meeting of the St. George Historical Society. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the St. George Grange Hall; please bring something to share for the potluck supper at 6:30 p.m.
Their ancestor Nathaniel Hupper was one of the early settlers of Port Clyde in the late 1700s. Nathaniel’s son John became an affluent ship owner. John Junior bought most of Bradford’s Island, since called Hupper’s Island, in 1852, and his descendants owned and occupied the island until the mid-1900s.
In the 1800s young men with an eye for their future did well to marry into one of the prosperous branches of the Hupper family. It will be interesting to learn how many of the better families in Port Clyde are interconnected to the Huppers.
Everyone is invited to either or both supper and meeting. A collection will be taken to pay for the use of the hall. For more information call James Skoglund at 372-8893.
