b. 1815 – South Carolina
Lubbock dropped out of school and clerked in a hardware store before pursuing a business career in South Carolina, New Orleans, and Texas, where he opened a general store. He was appointed comptroller of the Republic, and elected Harris County district court clerk and lieutenant governor.
Lubbock won the governorship in 1861 by 124 votes. He supported Confederate conscription, but males in frontier counties were exempt because they were needed to provide local defense against Indian attack. He was appointed aide-de-camp to Jefferson Davis and spent eight months in solitary confinement. He later served as state treasurer.
