John Almon Hovarter of Salem Township in Steuben County has an interesting family record, being a grandson of John Hovarter, and in the maternal line of Leonard Hartman. Both these families were pioneers in DeKalb Co., Indiana and their descendants are now widely scattered over Northeastern Indiana and in many other states. John Almon Hovarter was born on the farm where he lives today, February 1, 1865. He grew up there, attended the public schools, and has devoted his time to general farming and the raising of small fruits. He owns twenty-five acres in Salem township, other land near Brownsville and about 50 acres in Southern Mississippi. Mr. Hovarter, who is unmarried, is a democrat in politics but independent when casting his vote in local elections.
