Hubert C. Bowker was a World War I veteran. He served as a private in the Kansas 164th Depot Brigade, which reported for duty at Camp Funston in April and May, 1918. Hubert was born in 1893 to Amaziah Chester and Lois Irene (Adams) Bowker on the family homestead in the northeast corner of Albano Township. He had one brother and one sister, Dulcie May, who wrote in 1964, "[Hubert] was a large child; slower in movements and not so venturesome as we older ones." The family attended Antrim Church. Hubert never married and in 1964 was still living on the family's original homestead. He died in 1965 and is buried beside his mother in Neelands Cemetery.
