65 "History of Lawrence, Orange and Washington Co.'s, Indiana" Goodspeed Bros. and Co., 1884
C. P. WILLIAMS was born July 20, 1834, in the county where he yet resides, and was the oldest son in a family of thirteen children, ten of whom lived to years of maturity, born to Richard and Abigail (Kern) Williams who came to Lawrence County, Ind., in 1817, and were among the best of the early pioneers. C. P. Williams lived with his parents until twenty-nine years old, securing a good common school education. February 8, 1864, he married Lizzie S., daughter of B. and S. (Howard) Chase by whom he is the father of two children: Addie S., born March 15, 1865, died November 20, 1873, and Nellie C., born July 14, 1867. The mother was born April 7, 1840. Mr. Williams is one of the best and most thorough-going farmers in Spice Valley Township, and is the owner of 312 acres of nicely improved land. He is a Republican in politics and he and wife are members of the Christian Church.

CANAAN WILLIAMS is a son of Richard and Abigail (Kern) Williams, appropriate mention of whom is made elsewhere herein, and his birth occurred in Lawrence County, Ind., October 31, 1836. Like his brothers he was reared to manhood on the home farm, secured such educational advantages in youth as were common at that day, and February 20, 1863, was united in matrimony with Elizabeth Jane Hastings, who was born August 5, 1844, a daughter of Arthur and Catharine (Bowden) Hastings. Four children crowned this union, and were named Mary Ellen, John E., Carrie and Elizabeth Jane. The mother dying December 13, 1871, Mr. Williams married Miss Miranda, the daughter of J. and P. (Wagner) Moser, for his second wife, and this lady is yet living. In politics he advocates the principles of the National Republican party and he and wife belong to the Christian Church. As a farmer Mr. Williams ranks second to none in the township, and is the owner of 630 acres of nicely improved land.

70 "It is reported that Otie had one daughter born out of wedlock. This child was named Bertha (Burton) and was reared by Lillie and Jeff Huffstutter." Source: JRH. "It is reported that Bertha's mother died while Bertha was quite young. Bertha's father left her at a Brush Arbor Church of Christ meeting one night when she was about 3 years old. Lillie and Jeff took the child but never did adopt her. She continued to use the name Burton. as far as I know, Lillie and Jeff never knew who Bertha's father was and never saw him again after that night." Source:JRH. (Comments by Ray Huffstutter : Bertha was born 10 July, 1893, 9 days prior to her Mother Otie's marriage to Marquis Maurice/Marrow.When Bertha was about 3,about 1896, she was abandoned by her natural father at the Brush Arbor Church of Christ meeting and taken in by Lillie and Jeff. Lillie was Otie's aunt as Otie's mother, Sarah Jane Burton, was Lillie's half-sister. Bertha's mother Otie did not die until 1902, 9 years after her birth. I would think Lillie knew a great deal about her niece Otie's circumstances. The statement that no one knew Bertha's father is unlikely in a small community and he attended the Brush Arbor meeting himself). BURTON, Otie (I893)
 
71 "Jennie" was apparently a childhood nickname for Mary Emma V. Hofsteater. "Jema" age 9 appears on the 1870 census while "Jennie" age 19 is listed in the 1880 census in the home of Cyrus. The name Mary is not used for any family member.
At the time of her marriage to Peter Spracklin, "Jennie" used the name "Emma V. Hofsteater" while census for 1900 and 1910 use the name Mary E. or Mary E. V.
After 1880 there are no further records using the name Jennie until the obituary for Myrtle Spracklin in April 1953 which sites incorrectly her mother as "Jennie Hofsteater". Actually Mary (a.k.a. Jennie) was Myrtle's step mother.

86 "Miss Lillie truly an unforgettable person" Posted: Sunday, August 29, 1999; by MARY KATE TRIPP Globe-News Books Editor; She loved books and for more than 30 of the last years of a long working life she shared that love with people of the Texas Panhandle. These thoughts and other memories of Miss Lillie Hostetler, who organized the Deaf Smith County Library in my hometown of Hereford in 1930, are prompted by a recent letter from the Rev. Norman V. Hollen of Taos, N.M. The Rev. Mr. Hollen, a retired Episcopal priest, writes about his experience with Miss Hostetler some years after her retirement at Hereford had led, unintentionally, to a new job as Hutchinson County librarian. The job, supposed to be temporary, lasted more than 10 years, and Miss H. was well established in Borger when Hollen met her in 1949. Explaining the timing of his letter, he says it should have been written in 1996 around the time I mentioned Miss Hostetler in a column about the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. "My late mother in Borger sent me a clipping because she knew of my knowledge of Miss Hostetler," he writes, and proceeds to tell how he came by that knowledge:"After graduating from college in Iowa in 1949, I came to Borger where my parents lived and taught ninth grade English in the Borger schools from 1949 until 1951, when I was drafted. The school library was non-existent, so I walked over to the Borger Public Library and introduced myself to Miss Hostetler. I shall never forget her generosity, her friendship, and her graciousness to a green school teacher, then barely 21. She helped me set up a reserve shelf for my pupils and worked with me on a field trip to the library for them, introducing them to the library and its resources."From the first I was impressed with her personality, her obvious competence, and I suspected many of her jobs had not been easy. So I was delighted that her memory is still green for others, too. It has been half a century since I first met her, but she has always been in my memory as a model person in my life. Thank you for remembering her and writing about her." The letter further notes that the writer's father and aunt operated a weekly newspaper in Iowa from the 1920s through the early '40s and that his father came to Borger in 1945 to take a job on the Borger News-Herald. The stint in Borger represented Hollen's first and last experience as a teacher. After his discharge from the Army, he attended seminary in New York City and later was ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church. He is now retired and makes his home in Taos. His letter reminded me of why Miss Lillie must surely have been "the most unforgettable person" in the lives of many who met her. Certainly she was that for me.The library that opened in 1930 on the ground floor of the courthouse at Hereford represented riches to a 13-year-old who thought she could never get enough of books and reading. The lady in charge became a wonderful friend, keeper of the keys to the kingdom. I learned that she was from Illinois, a graduate of the University of Chicago, and that she had worked as a librarian in her hometown before becoming a teacher and a businesswoman. She had been out of the library field for years before coming to Hereford at what must have seemed a poor time - the beginning of the decade of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. Actually, it was a good time in some ways. Books in the Hereford library and an adult education program instituted by Miss Hostetler brought entertainment, inspiration and hope to people ground down by the worst weather and the hardest economic times most of them could remember. Always looking for a way to expand library services, she made her Model A Ford coupe into a bookmobile and traveled the dusty, unpaved roads to take books to farm homes and country schools where they could be checked out, saving farm families the cost of gas for a trip to town. Many, of course, continued to make regular trips to the county seat on Saturdays, the biggest day in the library week and the one on which I had an opportunity to work at the checkout desk. (Miss H distributed her minuscule labor budget to cover about $10 a month for each of several teen-agers who had taken a course to learn the rudiments of the Dewey Decimal System, plus the basics of shelving.)For me, the smell of the depression will always be the dusty aroma issuing from those books which were usually covered with silt by the time they got back to the library. Miss Hostetler was wonderful at her work but no good at all at retiring. After her temporary job with the Hutchinson Library stretched into more than 10 years, she once again planned to retire - by this time she was in her late 70s. Instead, she answered a call from Alice Green, director of the Amarillo public library system, to take over the adult education program, then called group services. Once again her tenure lasted around 10 years before her retirement in 1962. In 1964 she moved back to Hereford, to King's Manor retirement home where she lived until her death, at age 102, in 1977. Unable to read in her last years, she told me that before going to sleep at night she would remember favorite passages of literature and scripture committed to memory in her youth. I do not think this routine of her extreme old age will surprise the Rev. Norman Hollen.

The death date appears in the book by Barbara Norris Smith. In that book Barbara quotes from an interview with Rachel Hoffstatter: I think it was Lewis (grandfather of Bob Hoffstatter) that we went to see in Floris, Iowa one time when my Aunt Bertha was visiting. As I remember, Lewis had one son (who would be the father of Bob Hoffstatter). I don't have information on this family.

In Barbara's book it was written: Both Lewis [and Nora] taught in the one room country schools. Neither had benefit of college. they qualified by attending institutes and passing qualifying exams. Lewis died at his home in Floris about 7:15 a.m. on July 17, 1941, as a result of heart disease. He was seventy-two years old. He had been up and about town the day before, but had not been feeling well. They are buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery at Floris, Iowa.

Lewis was living in Ottumwa, Iowa when his sister Florence died in 1935.
In 1987 Lewis' grandson, Robert Junior Hoffstatter wrote: The Pierce Cemetery in Davis, Iowa is about 200-300 yards from the old Wilkinson homestead land. Around 1932-33 I lived on this farm with my grandparents Lewis E. and Nora Wilkinson Hoffstatter. Depression years, Grandpa couldn't get work in Ottumwa as a carpenter (they lived at 501 Ray St., Ottumwa, Iowa for a number of years) so he tried farming. The drought made that not too successful a venture. From about 1935-36 after they left the farm, Grandpa and Grandma lived in Floris, Iowa until their deaths.
