Jacob S. Hooser Sr.

M, b. 25 October 1807, d. March 1899
Father*Jacob F. Hooser
Mother*Catherine (?)
  • Jacob S. Hooser Sr. was born on 25 October 1807 at Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
  • He was the son of Jacob F. Hooser and Catherine (?).
  • Jacob S. Hooser Sr. married Elizabeth Knotts before 1832 at near Eddysville, Illinois.
  • Jacob S. Hooser Sr. married Mary Bennett, daughter of Levi Bennett and Mary Jacobs, in 1875 at second marriage for him also reported as 1873.
  • Jacob S. Hooser Sr. died in March 1899 at age 91 JACOB HOOSER (deceased) was for many years a resident of Grant county, Wis., and played a man's part in the giant endeavor his generation was making to reclaim the wilderness for the home for a happy and prosperous people.

    Mr. HOOSER was born in Sumner county, Tenn., Oct. 25, 1807, and was a son of Jacob and Catherine HOOSER, who came from Germany and made their home in Tennessee for a time. They moved to Philadelphia, when somewhat advanced in life, where he worked at this trade, that of a blacksmith, for some years. In 1820 he transferred himself and his family to Sangamon county, Illinois, where they lived until both husband and wife had passed away. Six children were born to them: Ambrose, their eldest son, came to Grant county, and followed farming in the town of Platteville until he died; Jacob; Polly married a Mr. HASS, and died near Dubuque; Rolina married and died in Illinois; John died in Illinois;, and Katie is Mrs. John FINLEY, of Nebraska.

    Jacob HOOSER came to Galena previous to the Black Hawk war in 1832. He was engaged in that uprising, was in many fights with the Indians, and had several narrow escapes for his life. He married Elizabeth KNOX, of Illinois, who died at his home in Platteville in 1867, the mother of four children. Justice, John and Amanda are dead, and Jacob is living in Oklahoma. Mr. HOOSER purchased from the government a section of land in Platteville township, and in 1848 built a stone house, which is in good preservation at the present time. He also built a stone house for one of his sons on the same property. This is now owned by Fred KLINGER. Mr. HOOSER made many improvements on these houses during his life. He dealt largely in real estate, and owned considerable land in different parts of Grant county. He was a Republican during his life, and filled a number of local offices, and was a prominent man in the affairs of the township. He was brought up a Baptist, but never united with the church. At the age of ninety-two he passed away, dying in March, 1899.

    In 1875 Mr. HOOSER and Miss May BENNETT were united in marriage. She is the daughter of Levi and Mary (JACOBS) BENNETT, and was born in Lafayette county April 11, 1847. To this union four children were born: Mary E., born in 1875 at their present homestead, was educated in the high school at Platteville, and is a young lady of culture and refinement, and inmate of her mother's home; Archie B., born in 1879, educated in the Platteville high school, and for some time a student of the State Normal, is the manager of the family estate, and is a young man of much ability, highly spoken of in the community; Sarah B., born in Platteville, in September, 1882, is now a student in the Platteville school; Lester W., born Feb. 4, 1877, was a promising young man and had many friends, and died July 22, 1894. Archie, the only surviving son, is a stanch Republican; he is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and the K. of P. of Platteville. The members of this family are very much respected, as was their father before them, and are useful citizens of the community.
