    Biography

    • From Bell's History of Northumberland County 1891: ALLEN S. HOTTENSTEIN, attorney at law, was born in Liberty township, Montour county, Pennsylvania, son of Charles and Veronica (Kauffman) HotĀ­tenstein. He was educated in the public schools of Turbut township and Milton Academy, and remained on his father's farm until twenty-two years of age, when he went to Berks county, this State, and taught school. He was a member of the first faculty of the Keystone State Normal School at Kutztown, Berks county, Pennsylvania, which position he resigned to accept the principalship of the high school of that place. He subsequently began the study of law with H. H. Swartz, judge of the orphan's court of Berks
      county, and was admitted to the bar at Lebanon, Pennsylvania, January 14, 1871. He removed to Scranton, where he practiced his profession for ten years. In July, 1881, he returned to Milton, the home of his youth, and has since engaged in various occupations in connection with his profession. Politically he is a Democrat and is considered a leader in the party of the community in which he lives. While residing in Berks county he was in the internal revenue service and also held the office of justice of the peace. He was appointed postmaster of Milton, July 26,1886 by President Cleveland, serving his full term of four years, two of which were under a Republican administration. In 1867 he was married to Mary E., only danghter of Daniel Zimmerman, of Berks county. She died August 2, 1869. He was again married on the 24th of September, 1870, to Henrietta Frances, daughter of Frederick W. Graff, of Philadelphia, by whom he has seven children: Bessie May; Lulu Graff; Katie Veronica; Annie Boneta; Ethel Margaret; Henry Kauffman, and Robert Lee. In 1884 Mr. Hottenstein became connected with the Milton Economist, which he successfully conducted until 1888. Starting with an old Washington hand press, he refitted the office with steam power and Campbell presses and increased the circulation from six hundred to one thousand nine hundred copies. Mr. Hottenstein and his family are members of the German Reformed church.
