I’m posting this because Rev. Hotchkin was active throughout our area.
The Durant Weekly News
April 7, 1922
Mr. Earl Hotchkin and Miss Thelma Bennett, both of this city, were quietly married in Sherman, Texas Saturday at noon. The young couple, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Delton Bennett, drove to Sherman and the ceremony was performed by Dr. Horton, of the Sherman Presbyterian Church.
Mrs. Hotchkin is the charming daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Bennett, living at 423 West Elm Street. She was born and reared in Durant and has a large circle of admiring friends.
Earl Hotchkin is the son of Rev. and Mrs. E. Hotchkin, who moved to Durant when Earl was two weeks old. He was born at Wynnewood, only a short distance from this city.
Rev. Hotchkin was a missionary at that time among the Indians of this country and in fact is still serving in that capacity. Earl received his education at Austin College and when he returned home entered the employ of the Durant National Bank, which position he now holds. He worked at this bank until the world war, when he entered an officers training camp and served in the Army as a First Lieutenant.
