Other children (all born Illinois) listed are Anna, b Mar 1874, and Arnold, b Dec 1890. A Gustav Hottinger married2120 10 Sep 1871 in Chicago, Catherina Rons(sic).

Child 2. Margaret
Margaret's middle initial is listed in the 1930 census1389. Although the first name of the child is not given, the Idaho Birth Index3126 lists a Veazie, child of Wm J Veazie, b Maine, and Clara Hattinger(sic), b Illinois, which is most likely the Margaret Veazie that appears in other records.
Child 3. Ellen
Though indistinct, Ellen's age in the Jan 1920 enumeration3125 for Canyon Side precinct, Idaho, appears to be 4 1/12 years. The 1940 census1389 for Chicago lists "Billie L," age illegible, as a daughter of William and Clara Veazie (indexed as "Deazie"). Because the age is not clear in that record, it's not clear whether that daughter is, in fact, Ellen.
