HOBLIT SAMUEL; the earliest history of the Hoblit family is now rather obscure; the first one known to have crossed the ocean was Michael Hoblit, born in Germany about 1755; he emigrated to America about twenty years later, and settled in Pennsylvania, where he lived and died. His wife’s first name was Catharine (the latter name is not known to any of the family); she was also a native of Germany, and was probably married there. These were the grand-parents of the subject of this sketch. They had nine children, viz: Boston, John, William, David, Elizabeth, Catharine, Mary, Margaret and Sarah. After Michael Hoblit’s death, his widow moved with these children to near Lexington,Kentucky; here Catharine married William Abbott,and Mary, Randal Walker. In 1779, Mrs. Hoblit, with the remainder of her family, moved to the American Bottom, where one crop was raised; after this she again returned to Kentucky, and in a short time removed to Ohio, to a place then known as “Todd’s Fork,” near Wilmington; this fork was in the woods, about five miles from any habitation; here the remainder of her family married and settled; she also married a Mr. Cocharan, and remained here until her death; she was a remarkably strong woman, and at one time weighed over three hundred pounds. Her oldest child Boston, married Sarah —— (her last name is not now known) and lived to be almost one hundred years old. John, the one who emigrated afterward to Logan County, and who was eighteen years old when he went with his mother to the American Bottom, married Millicent Seward, who was born January 25, 1782. William married Margaret Shields; David, Martha Walson, and moved to Missouri in 1839. Elizabeth married Timothy Bennet; Catharine, William Abbott; Mary, Randal Walker; Sarah, Thomas Lucas; and Margaret, Robert Shields. The dates of these marriages cannot now be given. John Hoblit, already mentioned, was the father of eleven children; they were all born in Ohio. In 1826 he came to Illinois on a prospecting tour, in company with Michael Mann, a Baptist minister, and his son Samuel, whose name heads this sketch; they had but two horses, and took turns in walking; after selecting a location, they returned, and, in 1827, Timothy B. who had married Barbara Bickel in 1822, and Sarah, who had married Benjamin F. Shipley, moved to Sangamon County, near Springfield; they raised a crop the following year, and in the spring of 1829, came up to Kickapoo timber, near the present town of Atlanta. Mary, who had married Adam Stevens, Samuel, who had married Abigal Downey, and Thomas Lucas, came west in 1829. All but Mr. Lucas settled on the Kickapoo; he went to Lake Fork; Millicent, the youngest, was at this time four years old. After the settlement in Logan County, the remaining children, on coming to a proper age, married; they were Mahlon S. who married Mary Ann Thomas; Elizabeth, Harvey Turner; James L., Catharine Larison; Nancy, Spencer Turner; Catharine, Thomas J. Larison; John E., Rachel Larison; and Millicent, A. K. Martin. Mr. Hoblit remained on his farm here until his death; this occurred September 5, 1844; he was a very highly esteemed man, and one of unswerving honesty. Samuel Hoblit had, several years previous to his father’s death, donated two acres of ground near Atlanta for a cemetery; his father’s body was the first deposited here. Mrs. Hoblit survived her husband but a few years; her death occurred May 14, 1855; she was a woman noted for great energy and force of character, and as a kind and judicious parent. Timothy B. Hoblit died October 23, 1854; his widow moved to near Atlantic, Iowa, where most of the children reside. Mahlon S. moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1857, and died at Otsego; at this place his widow and most of his children live. His oldest son, C. D. Hoblit, is now a prominent banker at Canton, Ill.; also, his son Alvan B. is a banker. A. K. Martin moved to Marysville, Missouri, where he yet resides; the remainder of the family live where they first settled in Logan county. Samuel Hoblit, whose portrait is given, was born in Clinton county, Ohio, January 17, 1805; he remained with his parents until his majority, going with them to Green County, working at his trade and on the farm; he was a wheelwright, having learned the trade from his brother, Timothy; when he came to Illinois, in 1826, with his father and Mr. Mann, he remained a while with his uncle, Samuel Seward, his mother’s brother, who had located at Quincy in a very early day; in 1836 this uncle moved to Texas, where his family yet live; while Samuel Hoblit was in Quincy, he was one of the “end men” at the raising of the first court house erected there; he bought three lots here, but wishing to return with his father, he traded them for a horse and saddle, with which he made the return journey; on January 4, 1827, he married Abigal Downey, oldest daughter of James and Mary Downey; she was born November 16, 1807; in September, 1829, they packed their few household goods, a few carpenter and cabinet tools, and started for the west; they were part of a company already mentioned, viz: his father and mother, with seven children, and his brothers-in-law Adam Stevens and Thomas Lucas; with the exception of the latter, all settled near the Big Grove on the Kickapoo, not far from the present town of Atlanta; here they found Timothy B. and Benjamin F. Shipley, with their families, who had come from the Sangamon River in the spring; they had built cabins, planted a crop of corn, and were breaking prairie. Samuel Hoblit pre-empted forty acres of timber, and entered forty acres of prairie adjoining, paying for the latter one dollar and twenty-five cents per acre at the land office in Springfield; to pay this, he borrowed the money of his father, who had brought five hundred dollars with him ; he at once cleared five acres of land, built a small cabin, and began life with his wife, one child, James D. and one dollar and fifty cents in silver; the following summer he planted a crop and built a hewed log house (still standing) in the edge of the timber; he moved into this house the day of the commencement of the “deep snow;” as these houses were somewhat open, the snow of that long winter, lasting eighty days without a thaw, continually drifted in, until under the bed it reached the cords, where it became packed and was allowed to remain until spring. The family lived here about ten years; Mr. Hoblit worked at his trade and carried on his farm; he made little and big wheels, reels, wagons, bedsteads, chairs, etc.; as this was the only shop in the community, he had abundance of work, and consequently considerable ready money; he was fortunate in this respect, as farm products at Pekin and Chicago did not bring prices sufficient to hardly justify their production. Mr. Hoblit built the largest hewed log house in the community, and in it Lewis M. and John A. were born; he also bought forty acres of land of Hiram Bowman, a Baptist minister; at the latter’s house the New Castle, now Atlanta, Baptist church was organized; it is the oldest church here; in 1839 ne built a large two-story frame house on the State road; he entered it the fall of that year, and in it the remainder of his children, Franklin, Caroline and Sylvester, were born; here he often entertained Abraham Lincoln, David Davis, Judge Treat, John T. Stewart, States Attorney Campbell, and others equally well known, when en their way to and from Bloomington to Springfield; they always traveled in their own conveyances. Here he built a shop, continued his trade, and improved his farm, extending it to 320 acres, besides buying land in, McLean County; in 1850 he sold the home farm to N. Rouch, for twenty dollars per acre in gold; he intended to move to Bloomington, where he had partly bargained for forty acres, then offered at one hundred dollars per acre, where the Chicago & Alton R.R. shops are now situated. He however moved to the Downey farm, five miles southwest of Atlanta, which he purchased, and in 1854 erected a comfortable residence, where he lived until his death, on May 26, 1866. His widow and youngest son still reside on the home. For several years he had ceased to work, owing to his being very fleshy, weighing at one time 363 pounds, and which no doubt shortened his days; he was buried in the Atlanta cemetery; he was a good manager, energetic in his work, and conscientiously fair in all his dealings; in politics he was a whig, afterwards a republican; he lived to see slavery abolished and the Union preserved; he was a Baptist, and for many years a deacon in the church; while living he contributed liberally, and in his will gave one thousand dollars and half its annual income to the Atlanta Baptist church for ever; he also remembered Shurtleff college, and one or two other institutions; be gave all his children a good start, and lived to see them well settled, and occupying honorable positions in life. Abigal Hoblit, his widow, still enjoys good health; she is living on the homestead, where, within a radius of twelve miles, are her six children, twenty grand and two great-grand children; she was a true helpmate, sharing all the toils of frontier life; she made every thing worn by the family for years; many of the articles are yet preserved, and should be carefully kept by those having them, as they can not now be duplicated; she was a brave and devoted mother, a model housekeeper, and her “boys and girls” yet aver that none can cook like mother—and grandmother—Hoblit. Mr. and Mrs. Hoblit left a family of six children; the oldest, James D. was born Nov. 28, 1827, in Green County, Ohio; he came with his parents to Illinois in 1829, and remained on the farm until of age; on September 16,1849, he married Mary Dyer, eldest daughter of George Dyer; she was born November 20, 1829; they have two children, Byron B. and George; he is a republican, a Baptist, and owns 350 acres. Lewis M. was born April 12, 1830, in this county; he has five children, Laban Josephine, Belle, Sylvanus and Abigal. John A. was born March 5, 1833, in this county; he remained on the farm until of age; on January 17, 1856, he married Nancy Wilmouth, daughter of Joseph Wilmouth; she was born March 31, 1836, in Logan Co. Ohio; they have seven children: Joseph W., A. Lincoln, Francis, Nellie, John A. and L. Benjamin; a twin sister of Nellie died in infancy; he is a Baptist, republican, and owns 822 acres of land. Frank was born Nov. I, 1839; was brought up on the farm, clerked in a store at the age of 18, and was afterward book-keeper in bank; when near 21 years of age he entered the dry goods trade; sold out in 1865, and in March, 1866, began the banking business; is now cashier of the First National bank, Atlanta; married Mellie A. Allen, June 5, 1864; she is daughter of Dr. J. S. Allen, and was born Jan, 2, 1846; they have one child, Walter B. born Sept. 21, 1865; he is a republican.

Martin, who moved to center of Delavan prairie, being the second one to venture out from the timber; they have six children: Samuel H., Ellen M, Charles E, Mary, Clinton D. and Mellie; Mr. Martin owns 340 acres in Orvil township, where he resides. Sylvester was born March 5, 1849; he now lives on the homestead with his mother; he married Adelaide Timmons Feb. 11, 1874; she was born Oct. 3, 1854, and is eldest child of Calvin Timmons; they have two children: Charles S. and Samuel G.; he is republican, and owns 140 acres in Atlanta Township

HOBLITT C. D. banker, Canton, Ill. was born Jan. 20, 1833, two miles east of where Atlanta now stands. In August, 1840, his father moved to Canton, Ill. and remained there until October, 1848, when he returned to Logan Co. and settled two miles south of Atlanta, on what is now called the Ash farm; he afterwards sold the farm and removed to Atlanta, and was engaged in business there until the spring of 1857, when he removed to Minneapolis, Minn; was married to his first wife, Carrie Childs (daughter of Doctor Nathaniel B.
