Spartanburg Herald { Spartanburg, S.C.}
October 6, 1911
MRS. EMMA J. HOTTAL, wife of MR. J.K. HOTTAL , who died Wednesday morning at her home on Forest St., after an illness of 5 days of congestion of the kidneys, was tenderly laid to rest yesterday in Oakwood cemetery.
Death was superinduced by a fall she received while attending a family reunion in Ohio two years ago.
Mrs. Hottal was born May 26, 1851, in Ohio and came to Spartanburg 29 years ago, and made a host of friends in this city. She was a consistent member of the Central Methodist Church and a woman of fine Christian character, a devoted wife, loving mother and a kind friend and neighbor.
The funeral services was held at the residence yesterday morning .
Besides her husband she is survived by six children:
MISSES OLIVE E. and ALICE M, CHARLES P. and SAMUEL HOTTAL, of this city, F.K. HOTTAL of Wilmington, N.C. and E.R. HOTTAL of Meridian, Miss.
The flowers were beautifully and plentiful, the grave being covered with wreaths of flowers, one of the prettiest being sent from Wilmington, bearing the inscription, " Mother".
On another site I discovered a Hottal family mentioned , the only one I have been able to locate. This is the reason I posted it here on this county.
JACOB K. HOTTAL , born in Seneca Co., Ohio, Oct. 8, 1846, was admitted to the bar in 1871 and two years later, became editor of the "Tiffin Star' , is now in Georgia.
