Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 762, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"ABRAM STOTTS was born in Edgar County, Illinois, October 15, 1849, and is one of the children of URIAH and MARY (BRUNSON) STOTTS, viz.: MAZE (deceased), REUBEN, MELINDA (deceased), MAHALA, OLIVE, NANCY (deceased), ABRAM, MARY (deceased), JOHN and URIAH. The father was born in Pickaway County, Ohio, in 1808; at the age of fifteen he began the tanner's trade in Columbus, Ohio, working at it until twenty-one; in 1831, he went to Elkhart County, Indiana, where he farmed sixteen years, and then moved to Edgar County, Illinois, and there lived five years; he then came to this county, and here died in 1861. ABRAM was about five years old when he came here with his father; he first lived one mile northeast of Winamac, for six years, and then for eight years three miles southwest of that town. In 1873, he moved to his present place, three and a half miles west of Monterey. He was married, November 24, 1870, to CLARA DeMOSS, who has borne him five children - WALTER (deceased), GRANT, BLANCHE, MAY and KATE. Mrs. STOTTS was born and reared in this township, and taught school here for several years. Mr. STOTTS pays particular attention to wheat-raising, and also rears hogs for the market. His farm contains 237 acres, forty of which were good land and eighty of which he has made good by nine years of well directed toil."
