About William M. Hoggatt

William M. Hoggatt, attorney and counselor-at-law, was born in the adjoining county of Orange, December 5, 1839, one in a family of nine children, four yet living, born to Wilford and Elizabeth (Wells) Hoggatt, who were natives respectively of North and South Carolina, and who came with their respective parents to Indiana when the State was yet in its infancy.

William M. was reared to manhood in his native county, receiving, in youth, such educational advantages as were common at that day. He afterward entered Asbury University, from which he received the degree of A. M. in 1863, and one year later graduated from the law department of the State University. Immediately after this he located for the practice of his profession at Mount Vernon, Indiana, where he remained until 1877 engaged in active practice. In 1866 he was elected District Attorney for the counties of Posey, Vanderburg, Gibson and Warrick, retaining that position two years. Since 1877 he has occupied a prominent position in the bar of Warrick County, residing at Boonville.

The mother died in November, 1874, and July 4, 1877, Mr. Hoggatt married Mrs. Gertrude (Burtis) Nettleton.
