(Witness) BioSampson Young and Brazalia Curtis were married in Hartville, raised a family of eleven in Hartville, operated a grocery store in Hartville—lived their entire lives in Hartville—and left a host of descendants to mourn their passing. Young’s grocery—modern for the late 1800’s, with glass-covered showcases and well-stocked shelves, boasted a lunch counter where hungry customers could purchase a penny’s worth of cheese and crackers. He also traded in produce and bought and sold rabbits. [picture]

After Roy passed away, Thona married Homer Huffstetler. Their children were Vernis, Harold and Don; (8) Clarence married Vava Eaton—children Ann, Dearles, Lowell, June and Ted; (9) Elsie married Luther Huffstetler—children Fewel and Dorothy; (10) Macie married Homer Mallory—children Alice and Bill; (11) Lela married Willis Huffstetler, a brother to Luther and Homer.
Sampson Young’s grocery was east of the courthouse square on Highway 38 near the Hartville Milling Company Plant. His home, where he and Brazalia raised their brood of eleven, is a block farther east just off 38 and is now the residence of the granddaughter Novella and her husband, Champ. . . .4
