    Mrs. Sarah Catherine Sutton, mother of Ed Sutton, of this city, died at the home of her son, Albert, on the old homestead, four miles east of town, yesterday. She was fifty-eight years of age and a woman much respected by all who knew her. She had had lung trouble for some time and bore up remarkably well until her nervous system gave away and hastened her death. The deceased was a resident of this county for many years and had a large circle of acquaintances who will deeply regret her death.

    Mrs. Sutton was born July 4, 1840 in Harrison Township, Blackford County, Indiana, a daughter of Jose K. and Catherine Gochnauer Hobson. She married Daniel Sutton on December 4, 1856 at Dunkirk, Jay County, Indiana. Mr. Sutton died June 20, 1875 at Dunkirk.

    Mr. and Mrs. Sutton were the parents of Arthur E., Albert E., Nellie A., Jose S., Ada A., Eliza C., and Minnie M. Sutton.

    ... In Blackford county Daniel Sutton wedded Miss Sarah C. Hobson, who was born in a little two-room frame house that stood opposite the court house on Main street, Hartford City, the date of her nativity having been July 4, 1840. She was a daughter of Joseph and Catherine (Goghnauer) Hobson, who were born in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia, where they were members of a German colony that had there been founded in an early day. Of the same ancestral line in Lieutenant Hobson, who won distinction in the United States Navy at the time of the Spanish-American war and who is now member of Congress from the State of Georgia. The marriage of Joseph Hobson and Catherine Goghnauer was celebrated in Henry county, Indiana, where the respective families settled in the pioneer days. Soon after marriage Joseph Hobson and his father-in-law decided to remove into the wilds of northern Indiana, and in 1837 they thus became residents of Blackford county. They established their home in the center of the county and they located the county seat, but they did not have sufficient financial reinforcement to exploit their effort, with the result that other persons established the county seat at Hartford City, a few miles distant.
    Samuel Goghnauer improved a farm in Jackson township, reclaiming the same from the virgin forest, and there the remains of himself and his noble wife rest in the little family cemetery on their old homestead. Joseph Hobson later removed to Allen county, and he and his wife died near the city of Fort Wayne, each having passed the age of three score years. Mr. Hobson was originally a whig and later a republican, and he was a staunch abolitionist in the days prior to the Civil war. Mrs. Sarah C. Sutton, mother of Albert E. Sutton of this review, died at his home in Jackson township, Blackford county on the 29th of April, 1898, her gentle and gracious life having been consonant with the faith she professed, that of the Methodist Episcopal church. ...
