Hilpah E. Pease daughter of Shoble M. and Mila Everett Pease was born at Elkhart, Indiana, Feb. 3, 1841. Her parents were active workers in the Methodist Episcopal church with which she united at an early age, remaining a member throughout life.
Ten years of her early womanhood were devoted to the school work of her day in which she was considered very successful. In her 27th year she was married to J. M. Hochstetler at Goshen, Ind., where they lived until the spring of 1868 when they moved to Dexter, Iowa, locating on a wild prairie farm, the site of the present homestead.
Their household goods were hauled overland from Des Moines, then the end of the Chicago, Rock Island which was extended through Dexter the following summer.
The principal part of the lumber for their first modest little home was also hauled overland from Des Moines. Into this home were born five children, all of whom are still living and were present at her bedside to minister to her comfort during her last illness: Chas. H., Mame and Everett E. of Dexter, Ia., Mrs. Callison, of this city and Mrs. Theo. Davis of Crosby, N. D. . . . .
