Chapter LXVI Martic Township
The Kosciusko Lodge, No. 374, I. O. O. F .- This lodge was instituted Sept. 29, 1849, and was at that time located in the village of Mount Nebo. The first officers consisted of the following: N. G., Mifflin Elliott; V. G., John Hess; Sec., George Campbell; Assist. Sec., George McCombs; Treas., Samuel Harnish. The lodge continued to meet in the hall at Mount Nebo until 1853, when, to secure more commodious quarters, the hall of the Sons of Temperance at Rawlinsville was purchased and the lodge removed there.
Since its removal to Rawlinsville the lodge has enjoyed a degree of prosperity seldom equaled by lodges outside the cities. At present the lodge owns its own hall, and has between four thousand and five thousand dollars at interest. This lodge is centrally located, in a good neighborhood, and must continue to prosper in the future as it has done in the past. Below we give the names of those who have filled the chair of Noble Grand from September, 1849, to October, 1883; [included in this list is] Albert Hagen
The Columbia Spy
June 5, 1880
ACCIDENT TO PRISON INSPECTOR HAGEN - Mr. Albert Hagen, of Mount Nebo, was kicked by a horse, which he was leading to water. The animal jumped and playfully kicked, striking Mr. H. on the arm and on the side of his head, knocking him senseless for a few minutes. The stroke was a passing one, or it would have been serious, and he soon recovered. Mr. Hagen, it will be remembered, was chosen as one of the Prison Inspectors at the later primary election. He was in town on Thursday evening.
Albert is buried next to his wife at Greenwood Cemetery, Lancaster City, Lancaster County, PA.

Ohio railroad, with headquarters at North Mountain Station. Three hundred of the members re-enlisted for a one year's term, and were consolidated into three companies. The others were mustered out at Harrisburg, Nov. 4, 1864.
Seven new companies were recruited in Feb., 1865, by Col. Fisher and on March 16 the regiment was reorganized at Martinsburg, W. Va. for a term of one year. Three more companies were temporarily attached to it. Only one change was made in the field officers; Henry D. Markley became major in place of Maj. James. It served at Charlestown, Kabletown and Stevenson's station, Va., until April 22, when it moved to Berryville, Va., and was employed in preserving order among the people of the
region. On June 6 it moved up the valley as far as Harrisonburg. While on the way the noncommissioned staff and Cos. A, B and C, composing the veteran battalion, were mustered out at
