The paternal grandparents were natives of the state of Massachusetts, who moved to Eaton, in the Province of Quebec, Canada, where for some years they were engaged in farming. There their son, Josiah, was born, and spent his early years. When he was nine years old they sold the farm and returned to Maine, later moved from there to Burns, La Crosse County, Wis., where they settled on a farm, the father (grandfather of Hugh Lawrencew) also preaching in the Free Will Baptist church ... Hugh Lawrence Lothrop acquired his elementary education in the district school, and was afterwards graduated from the graded school and the high school in Zumbrota. In January, 1910, he entered the law department of Minnesota State University, where he was a student for two and one-half years, subsequently reading law in the office of Senator A. J.
