    H. W. HOOPS

    H. W. Hoops. As the son of one of Miami county's early settlers and stanch upbuilders, H. W. Hoops has maintained the excellent reputation established by his father, as a representative of the best farming element of Newberry township. Mr. Hoops was born in this township, in 1882, a son of George and Anna (Hay) Hoops, who passed their active careers as farming people of this locality, where they had the respect and good will of all who knew them. There were three children in the family: H. W., Roy and Merle. H. W. Hoops attended the public schools of his native township and was reared on the home farm, and in his boyhood and youth wisely availed himself of the opportunities which came to him, a fact which has been borne out in his practical education and advanced views on agriculture. Applying the knowledge and experience which he had gained in his younger years upon starting out for himself, Mr. Hoops took up farming scientifically, and by the exercise of care and sound judgment in his undertakings has developed one of the valuable and attractive farms of Newberry township. While he has been principally concerned in his home and his farm, he has at all times, in both peace and war, discharged the duties of good citizenship, and has been a liberal supporter of all beneficial measures. Mr. Hoops married Dellmer, daughter of Henry and Emma (Fritz) Fulker, farming people of Miami county. Two brothers of Mrs. Hoops, Otto and Hobart Fulker, fought as soldiers of the United States Army during the recent World war. Four children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Hoops: Eileen, Imo, Vera and George Henry.
