To: Virginia Lehner, I don't think I can help you, as I am mystified also by your post, but I am searching the Hooten line and found your post. I am researching Robert Lee Hooten, who is listed as the son of Martin and Martha Hooten on the 1900 census, which also shows Martin Conklin as the grandson. I found Henry Conklin to be in 2 census - the 1860 and the 1880. Both of them he was with this wife Charlotte. He was a farmer and had listed his age as 41 in the 1880 census. Children were David, Julia, Mary E., Lucrecia, Viola, and James. The Loos are right below him in the census. In the 1860census he is living with the Loos family, but the name is written Loosi:Henry is with Charlotte and also it appears with a younger brother John W. Conklin. It seems hard to believe that after 20 some years of marriage with Charlotte that he would leave her and all thier children, but then again, who knows? My interest lies in Sarah Hooten as well as your interest. She is contesting his civil war pension, and it also seems that Henry is an invalid caused by the civil war. He did receive distinguishing honor. Do you have any further information concerning the civil war papers or pension papers for David?
