JOHN FRANK HUPP.
John Frank Hupp, whose attention from earliest boyhood has been turned in the direction of agricultural pursuits,
was born in Louisa county on the 14th of August, 1882. His father, John C. Hupp, was a native of Pennsylvania but
for many years was numbered among the earnest and hard working farmers of Morning Sun township, where he passed
away in October, 1883. The mother, who prior to her marriage was Delia A. Jones, is also deceased. In the family
were four children, but the two eldest died in infancy, those surviving are: Horace, whose birth occurred on the
2d of July, 1879; and John Frank, our subject.
The education of John Frank Hupp, who was only a little more than a year of age when his father passed away, was
acquired in the district schools in the vicinity of the family homestead. Early trained to habits of thrift and
industry he has ever been enterprising and energetic. Owing to the early widowhood of his mother, both he and his
brother had to assume the duties and responsibilities which really belong to men when still quite young lads. They
now own and operate the old homestead, which contains one hundred and twenty acres of arable land, in connection
with the cultivation of which they also raise cattle and hogs. Their fields are well drained and tilled, all being
under a high state of cultivation, while they have sufficient room in barn and sheds to provide adequate shelter
for their stock, grain and implements. The improvements upon the place are substantial and in good condition and
the grounds are neatly kept, this making the farm one of the attractive properties of Morning Sun township.
Both John F. Hupp and his brother affiliate with the Presbyterian church, and his political support is given to
the republican party, but he has never been an office seeker. He is one of the industrious and capable young agriculturists
of the township, among whose citizens he numbers many friends.
