Schooler Family Genealogy Forum
While not a member of this family, I thought the following info may be helpful to your search. Martha A. Schooler, daughter of Richard and Lear (Scott) Schooler, married J. Smith Hooton in Marion County, Iowa, on June 26, 1849. The family moved to Council Bluffs, Iowa, Pottawattamie County, by 1855, and J. Smith Hooton was Mayor of this city from 1857-1858. He also served as County Sheriff.
Lear Schooler is in the 1860 census for Council Bluffs, Iowa, and probably died there. J. Smith Hooton and wife Martha Schooler Hooton had children: Kate, Andrew, William, Anna, Bridget, Emanuel H. and Richard. Kate was a school teacher in Council Bluffs in 1880, and she married S.C. Sprague there in 1881.
Council Bluffs historical researchers are publishing a small booklet of the early pioneers buried in Fairview Cemetery there, including the name of J. Smith Hooton.
