HON. E. B. HOYT, dealer in dry goods, clothing, boots and shoes, hats and caps, hardware and queensware, was born and reared in Adams County, Ill., and graduated in a thorough classical course of study from Knox College, Ill., in 1866, at the age of twenty-four. In 1868, he located here and engaged in farming and stock-raising, which he carried on successfully until 1877, when he retired from it and assisted very materially in organizing the present town [Opolis, Crawford, Kansas], after which he engaged in his present industry, and has very successfully operated since. In 1876, he represented this district in the Legislative Assembly of the State. He has worked actively in the development of the social, public and industrial life of his locality since coming here and has besides his official position already mentioned filled many minor municipal official positions of honor and trust. He is an active member of the I. O. O. F. Society. The family are members of the M. E. Church. In 1870, he married Miss Melissa A. Embree, who was born and reared in Monroe County, Mo., and was educated in McGee College, Mo. Mr. and Mrs. Hoyt have a family of one son and daughter living--May and Ebenezer, and have buried one son--James Reynolds, in the Crocker Cemetery, Opolis. [The couple's daughter, Blanche Hoyt married a Mr. Hostutler and they had a son, James. Before the 1930 Census, she married David Dunn. She is enumerated in Baker Township, Crawford, Kansas with Mr, Dunn along with her parents, and son, James.]
