I am looking for information on any Hotelling/Houghtaling/Hoftaling or any other spelling of this unusual name that might have lived in the Otsego County area.
Particularly, I am looking for Peter V., Salmon (Solomon), Jacob and Martha, Frank, Loise (Louise), and possibly Elisha. These people would have went to Tioga Co. Pa. All but Salmon and Elisha I know are related to me. I am not sure if Elisha even exists and Salmon was from a group of Houghtalings that settled in the next town over. I can't prove these two groups are related, but as Tioga Co. Pa is a very rural area and the two town are very small and very close, it only seems that they should be.
Peter V. was my great-great-grandfather and according to his death certificate, he was born in Otsego NY, and counting back in time according to the inscription on his gravestone, he was born c. 31 March 1824.
If anyone has any information on this family, it would be greatly appreciated. You can email me at or just post a reply and I will be notified. Thanks in advance.

Christine Smith
