George V. N. Lothrop

George V. N. Lothrop

George Van Ness Lothrop - (August 8, 1817–1897) was a politician in the U.S. state of Michigan, serving as the seventh Michigan Attorney General from 1848 until 1851.

Lothrup was born in Easton, Connecticut, the son of Howard Lothrop and Sally (Williams) Lothrop. He was married in 1847 to Almira Strong. Lothrop was a candidate for U.S. Representative from Michigan's 1st congressional district, losing to Republican William Alanson Howard in 1856 and to Bradley F. Granger in 1860. He was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention from Michigan in 1860 and a delegate to the Michigan State Constitutional convention in 1867 (which did not produce a constitution approved by the voters). Lothrup served as U.S. Minister to Russia from 1885 to 1888. A Michigan historical marker on Charlevoix Avenue in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan commemorates a stand of pine trees that George V.N. Lothrop planted on the site in 1878. These trees became the "feeder stock" for many of the pine groves that are now widespread in the eastern suburbs of Detroit. The street just across Charlevoix Avenue from the pine plantation is named Lothrop Road in George V.N. Lothrop's honor.

Lothrop died in 1897 and is interred Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan. He was a member of Alpha Delta Phi and Phi Beta Kappa.

Lothrop's brother, Edwin H. Lothrop, was Speaker of the Michigan State House of Representatives in 1844. Lothrop's daughter, Emily Anne "Nan" Lothrop (1860-1927), married Baron Barthold Theodorevitch von Hoyningen-Huene (1859-1942), a Baltic nobleman and military officer, and their son was the noted fashion photographer George Hoyningen-Huene.
