Subject: [PAWESTMO] Letters on Danial Hough
Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2008 20:20:25 -0500
Dear Hough Descendants,
Here is a tidbit that I hope helps someone back up their line on Hough.
On Mar. 8th, 1934 a letter was written to a lady named Feight, Ammert
Anderson Feight, to be exact, by a lady named Jessie Browneller, in Sedalia,
MO - This is what it stated.
Dear Mrs. Feight,
At last I have obtained the address of Mrs. John Printz for you. Just
write to her at Liberal Kansas.
The lady who wrote to my friend says Mrs. Printz knows all about the
Hough family in Tipton.
She also said that Mr. Dan Hough was buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery
at Tipton, so I hope to have the dates on his tombstone for you before long.
We have been having our coldest weather of the winter just lately but we
hope for spring weather soon.
I shall write to you as soon as I get the dates from the Tipton Cemetery,
Sincerely, Jessie Browneller
This letter is followed by the following one on Apr. 10, 1934 to Mrs. Feight
& it states as follows.
Dear Mrs. Feight,
Our first warm Sunday came day before yesterday and my sister drove me
down to Tipton to get the dates of your great grandfather. The cemetery is
not very large and we found the grave in a few minutes. I think you can
tell the dates on the stone but shall copy what I wrote down.
Daniel Hough Died Sept. 11, 1883 aged 80 y - 1 m - 27 d.
As you see, the shaft has come off owning to the foundation settling.
Otherwise, everything was very well kept about the grave. The monument is
of a blue gray granite and looks to be of a more recent pattern than the
footstone, which is of white marble (in the rear) with the initials D.H. on
This cemetery is a mile or more from Tipton and has the peaceful quiet
look of many country cemeteries.
We brought out the lettering on the stone by filling the indentations
with damp earth - otherwise the stone would have appeared a blank.
I hope these dates will help you. It was a pleasure for me to get them
for you. Would you be interested in my line from Eve Hough?
Nicholas Snyder married Eve Hough & the letter goes on to list that line,
but without dates & is signed by Jessie Browneller.
