Note: The first Mrs. Hackman is buried in the Bellegrove UB Cemetery, North Annville township, Lebanon County.  The second Mrs. Hackman (nee Hake) was the widow of a Mr. Hain.  According to the family: “Mary Catherine was a young widow (Hain) with a young son when she married Henry. Her family didn't want her to take on the responsibility of 7
small children and made her write him a letter refusing his proposal but he arrived at her home before she got the letter and she couldn't refuse him. All her step children loved her. They had been parcelled out to various famlies until she came.  This information is from Henry’s granddaughter Mary C.Mc Lanachan.”  While some sources  erroneously claim that Henry E. Hackman died in Reel County, Mississippi.   An obituary also appears in the 1/27/1897 Religious Telescope.

Note: While Thomas F. Hallowell was born near Lancaster PA – also the original home of brothers Rev. Peter Hallowell (1818-1906: Methodist) and Rev. Norman P. Hallowell (d1905: denomination unknown) – his relationship to that Hallowell family is not known. 

     There is also a Rev. Thomas F. Hallowell listed in the West Africa Conference at Rotifunk from 1898 to 1947.  This is an African pastor who received the name T.F. Hallowell because Mrs. T.F. Hallowell, then living in Lancaster PA, sent funds to Africa for his support.  Mrs. Hallowell died in Los Angeles in August 1915.  A biography of this African T.F. Hallowell is in the United Brethren section of the conference archives and a tribute to him appears in The World Evangel for January 1957, page 13.

Note: After the Hagerstown [Virginia] Conference was formed in 1830, several people seemed to serve in either conference without formally changing their membership.  John Haney appears to have been a member of Pennsylvania Conference who preferred to serve in Maryland and Virginia.  In 1840 he finally requested a formal transfer, but appears not to have itinerated for a while.  He moved to Minnesota in the mid 1850’s and was there when that conference organized in 1857.  The family of the first Mrs. Haney were leaders in the Middletown MD church, and the Haneys may have lived in that area during his non-itinerating years in the 1840’s.  Both Holdcraft’s 1939 History of the Pennsylvania Conference, page 296, and Funkhouser’s 1921 History of the Virginia Conference, page 167, and give a brief biography.

Hartsock in an article on “Letters from Kansas” and stated that he “settled in Salina, founded the first Lutheran church there, and then moved to McPherson where he was a minister, farmer, and businessman.”

Note: Although consistently rendered HERRE, the name is thought to be a corruption of HERR.  Bangs’ 1839 History of the Methodist Episcopal Church, page 375 of volume II, quotes Otterbein as saying in 1812 (being in America “sixty years, come next August”) that Simon Herre was from Virginia and is deceased.  He is among four that Otterbein names when asked, “What ministerial brethren who have been your helpers can you speak of with pleasure, and whose names are precious?”  Drury’s 1924 History of the United Brethren in Christ, page 156, gives a brief biography of Herre and the others listed in connection with the historic conference of 1789.

Note: Charles M. Hott is the son of Jacob Fries Hott (1822-1884) of the Virginia Conference and one of four brothers to enter the ministry – and a fifth brother David Otterbein Hott (1863-1880) died while so preparing, and a sister Ella Frances Hott (1849-1891) married Millard [Monroe?] F. Keiter of the Virginia Conference (and later, the Old Constitution).  The others (all members of the Virginia Conference) are (bishop) James William Hott (1844-1902), John Elkanah Hott (1846-1919), George Peter Hott (1854-1914).  Charles Hott followed his brother Bishop Hott to California and taught briefly at the UB’s Woodbridge Seminary (later San Joaquin Valley College) before his untimely death.  Charles M. Hott is not in Holdcraft’s 1939 list, but was inserted in the 1968 Miller-Raker list.  He neither was a member of the Pennsylvania Conference nor served a church while it was in the Pennsylvania Conference, and so he should not be in this list.  He apparently appears because after his death (in California, while still a member of the Maryland Conference), his widow returned east and became of widow in the Maryland Conference – so that the 1902 MD-Pennsylvania Conference merger earned her standing and an obituary in the Pennsylvania Conference.
