Brother Thomas Harmon Hahn was born at Yorktown, Texas, in DeWitt County, on January 26, 1871.  He was the oldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. August c. Hahn, Sr.

In the early 1880s, Brother Hahn's father and mother moved to Burnet County, and settled in the Bethel Community near Lake Victor, where they were engaged in farming and stock raising for many years.

Brother Hahn was initiated as an Entered Apprentice Mason on January 9, 1909.  He was passed to the degree of Fellowcraft on February 13, 1909, and was raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason on March 13, 1909, in Valley Lodge No. 175 A.F. & A.M., located at Burnet in Burnet County, Texas.
