JOHN H. HOOPS was born in Perry County, Ohio, March 10, 1825. At the age of
27 he was united in marriage to HESTER A. FALLS. To this union were born
nine children, three of whom died in infancy. FRANK, the eldest son, died
March 6, 1898. Five children survive him, three sons and two daughters,
CHARLES of Red Oak, Ia.; JOHN of Russell, Ia.; WILLIAM of St. Anthony, Idaho
MARY ALLEN of Healdsburg, California, and IDA NOBLE of Dallas, Iowa. His
three sons were with him at the time of death, his daughters being unable to
be present on account of sickness.

The deceased united with the M.E. Church at the age of 16 years and was a
consistent member until the time of his death, which took place at the home
of his son CHARLES at Red Oak, Ia. He died at the age of 82 years, 10 months
and 16 days. His wife preceded him to the better land Sept. 7, 1897. He
came to Lucas County in 1866 and located near Russell where he lived until
the death of his wife, when he went to make his home with his daughter IDA
at Dallas, Marion County, Iowa.

He was a true Christian, a kind husband and a loving father and besides his
five children left to mourn his loss with several grandchildren, he leaves a
host of friends who feel they have lost a true friend and a kind neighbor.
The body was brought to Russell, Monday, Jan. 27th on train No. 4 and was
cared for by friends until the funeral services which were held Tuesday at
10:30 a.m. in the M.E. Church being conducted by D.J. Shenton. The
