CHARLES W. HOSTLER, a native of York County, Penn., was born May 28, 1832. His parents, John and Sarah (Waltermirne)
Hostler, were natives of Pennsylvania, and of German descent. They came to Hancock County, Ohio, in 1838, and settled
on a farm, where Mr. Hostler now resides, in the eightieth year of his age. Mrs. H. departed this life in 1841.
They were the parents of twelve children; of these, five are living. Mr. Hostler, our subject, remained at home
until eighteen years of age, and assisted in clearing up the homestead. March 30, 1854, he was married to Miss
Mary J. Sterling, daughter of Jacob and Jane (Grimes) Sterling, who were early settlers in Hancock County, Ohio.
