Indiana Biography of Hubert Morton English M.D
HUBERT MORTON ENGLISH, chairman of the medical staff of the Methodist Hospital at Gary and member of the staff of the Mercy Hospital, has achieved high rank and has won notable success in his profession since coming to Gary.
He was born at Marshall, Illinois, July 30, 1890, and represents the fourth generation of a family that went to Illinois nearly a century ago. His great-grandfather, Rev. Abel English, was descended from a Colonial family of New Jersey, and the family had representatives in the Colonial army during the war of the Revolution. Rev. Abel English moved west to Indiana in 1835, and in 1837 established a home at Marshall, Illinois. He was a pioneer Methodist minister, helped establish the first church of that denomination in Marshall and carried on the work of the ministry over a large part of the Illinois River Valley. He married Margaret Babcock and both are buried in a cemetery at Livingston, Illinois. Their son, Isaac English, was born in New Jersey, in 1821 and was fourteen years of age when the family moved to Indiana. He attended school in New Jersey, in Indiana, where the family home for two years was near Indianapolis, and completed his education in Illinois. He became a farmer, and spent an active life in that vocation. He died in 1896 and his wife, whose maiden name was Sarah Black, passed away in 1892. These were the grandparents of Doctor English of Gary.
Doctor English's parents were John A. and Marietta (Clemings) English. His father lived all his life at Marshall, Illinois, was a farmer and stock man and was in his fifty-third year when he died in 1900. His wife, Marietta Clemings, was born and reared near Newark, Ohio, attended school there and taught school in Ohio and Illinois before her marriage. She died September 7, 1927, at the age of seventy-nine, and she and her husband are buried at Marshall. Her parents were James and Rosana (Barclay) Clemings. Doctor English is one of a family of seven children. One child, Ferman, died in infancy. John William is a farmer at Paris, Illinois; Raymond C. is a railway mail clerk, with home at Decatur, Illinois; Ava is Mrs. Albert Hall, of Marshall, Illinois; Mark H. died at the age of seventeen; and Charles W. is with the Gary Railways Company at Gary.

On July 1, 1918, he joined the colors as a first lieutenant in the Medical Corps, serving two and a half months in an officers training camp at Camp Greenleaf, Georgia, and for two and a half months was assigned duty at Saint Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D. C. He was given a discharge December 13, 1918, and then for three years engaged in a general practice at Anawalt, West Virginia. Returning to Chicago, he was for fifteen months connected with the Augustana Hospital as interne and in post-graduate study, and after this special training came to Gary in 1923, opening an office, and has enjoyed a rapidly growing practice in medicine and surgery. His offices are at 73 Broadway. Doctor English is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and since 1925 has given part of this time to his duties as an instructor in the medical department of Northwestern University at Chicago. He is a member of the Lake County, Indiana State and American Medical Associatons.

He married at Ironwood, Michigan, January 11, 1923, Miss Esther Holmgren, daughter of John A. and Tolina (Gunderson) Holmgren. Her father has for many years been connected with the iron mines at Ironwood, and is superintendent in one of the large mines in that district. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and a deacon in the Lutheran Church. Mrs. English attended school in Ironwood, graduating from high school there, and is a graduate of the nurses training class in the Augustana Hospital at Chicago, with the class of 1919. For four years after graduating she was surgical nurse at this hospital. She is a member of the Methodist Church in Gary and the Gary Woman's Club.
