N. H. LETTS was born in Licking County, Ohio, in 1826, and moved with his parents to La Salle County, Illinois, just before the Black Hawk War.

In 1886, moved to Ottawa, Illinois; and, after obtaining an education, he went into the mercantile business, which he followed until the war commenced, when he emigrated to Louisa County, Iowa, and engaged in stock farming.

In 1871, he sold out, and came to Afton, where he purchased the hotel known as the "Madison House," which, in conjunction with his son-in-law, Mr. Ream, he still runs and keeps as good a house as any landlord in Union County. Mr. Letts married, in 1845, Miss Herma Cowel, of Putnam County, Illinois, and has five children.
