  FRANK H. HOTT, who was born on May 20, 1873, in Pickaway county6, Ohio, sprung from parentage, on his paternal side, that had seen and taken part in the great conflict of the Civil War.  He is the eldest child of William H. and Mary E. (Smith) Hott, to whom were born five children, namely:  Frank H.; the second child died in infancy; also the child following; the fourth child, Milton M., is manager of the bakery at Asheville, Ohio; and Earl S., also engaged in the bakery business at Ashville.
     William H. Hott, was born on Sept. 16, 1847, in Pickaway county, Ohio, and was a farmer boy until, in 1864, he enlisted at Circleville, Ohio, in Company A, One Hundred and Ninety-third Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and served his country in the hazardous capacity of scout until the close of the conflict.  After peace had been declared, he returned to Pickaway county, Ohio, and engaged in farming for several years and took up the carpenter's trade.  Broken in health, he gave up that work in 1896 and opened a small bakery shop, which business he built up to a large and lucrative trade.  He was a progressive leader, charitable in his dealings and an honored member of the Grand Army of the Republic, being one of the oldest members of the post to which he paid loving devotion until his death, on Mar. 8, 1914, at Ashville, Ohio.  He was the son of William H. and Sarah (Whitsell) Hott, formerly of Virginia, who, in 1808, removed to Pickaway county, Ohio, where they farmed until their death.
     Mary E. (Smith) Hott, the mother of Frank H. Hott, was born on Mar. 27, 1854, near Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Metzger) Smith, both natives of Ohio.  She is now living at Ashville, Ohio, where she is engaged in the bakery business, of which she is part owner.
     Living at Ashville, Ohio, and receiving his education from the public schools of that town, Frank H. Hott at fourteen years of age, learned the carpenter's trade and advanced rapidly until at the age of twenty years he began contracting on medium scale, constructing several business blocks and residences.  In 1899 he learned the baker's trade from his father, in whose place of business he remained until May 16, 1910, when he came to Mt. Sterling, Ohio, and purchased a bakery very poorly equipped and with practically no trade.  Today, as the result of his genius and progressive nature, he owns a thoroughly modern, sanitary baking shop and a comfortable, modern home.
     In connection with his bakery Mr. Hott has purchased an automobile, for quick delivery to his many customers and his rapidly increasing trade.  His genial nature and business acumen have won for him a large patronage and the respect of his associates and the public as well.
     Lola E. Tanquary, who was born on June 2, 1875, at New Holland, Pickaway county, Ohio, became the wife of Frank H. Hott in 1899.  She is the daughter of Benjamin and Carrie (Lee) Tanquary, natives of Ohio and Indiana, respectively.  Her father enlisted in the Civil War during the year 1862, at Washington C. H., Ohio, in Company A, of the Sixtieth Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in which he was a corporal and saw most of his service under Captain Black.  He was taken prisoner at Harper's Ferry and received his honorable discharge in 1864, after which he returned to New Holland and engaged as a traveling salesman until 1899.  About that time it became necessary for him to make a trip to Colorado for the benefit of his health which had been undermined during the war and it was there, in 1905, that he passed away at the age of sixty-two.  His wife remained in Colorado and now resides in Denver, of that state.
     To Frank H. and Lola E. (Tanquary) Hott have been born five children:  Alice, Benjamin E. and Louis V., who are at home; William, deceased; and a fifth child who died in infancy.
     The Democratic party has the support of Frank H. Hott and his enthusiasm is of great assistance to them in their campaigns.  He is an earnest and sincere member of the Methodist church.  His fraternal relations are with the Knights of Pythias and the Modern Woodmen of America.  Frank H. Hott has always been a great worker and an honest man and the respect in which he is held by the townspeople is justly deserved and appreciated.
