Note: the veteran headstone for Rex uses "Fredrick" for the middle name, but most other Hootman family sources use "Frederick". Veteran headstone inscriptions are sometimes found to have engraving errors, so will use the "Frederick" for the middle name and "Fredrick" as a nickname on this memorial, pending any clarification.
