Albert Hobbs, one of the ablest and most exemplary citizens that the county ever had, was born at Ogdensburg
in August, 1820, and came to Constable with his father as a boy. His early purpose was to become a physician, and
for a time he studied medicine witili Dr. Dana Stevens of Moira; his inclination turning later to the law, he located
in Malone, where he remained until his death. He was elected to the Assembly by the Knownothings in 1855, and to
the State Senate by the Republicans in 1863, and in 1867 and again in 1871 was chosen county judge. He was also
supervisor of Malone for a number of terms, and in every relation of life was uncompromising and outspoken. Of
the temperament and conviction of seemliness that would not countenance the slightest effort on his own part to
gain office, his record of office holding testified impressively the estimate of his ability and character that
was widely held by the people. Judge Hobbs was probably the best judge of law that the county ever had, though
riot the shrewdest practitioner. He died April 11, 1897.
