Mrs. Elizabeth Hougland

    Mrs. Elizabeth Hougland, daughter of Manuel and Margaret (Humphrey) Broshears, who were natives of Kentucky, was born in Ohio County of that State June 22, 1839, the fourth in a family of eleven children. In 1855 Mr. Broshears moved to Indiana, settling first in Pike County, then removing to Warrick County, and from there to Gibson County, where he died November 22, 1884, and where his widow is yet living.

    Mrs. Hoagland was married in her native State at the age of fifteen years, to John E. Condict, and six children were born to them, named Mary E. (Mrs. C. J. Martin), Lucinda M. (Mrs. Thomas L. Neves), Martha Jane (Mrs. S. M. Null), John L., James F. (deceased), and Benjamin F. Removing to Indiana with his family, Mr. Condict worked at carpentering for a time, then read and practiced medicine in Pike and Gibson Counties until his death in the latter county about the close of the Rebellion. After her husband's death Mrs. Condict came to Warrick County with her children and engaged in farming.

     February 17, 1874, she became the wife of Andrew Hougland and by him has two children: Andrew J., and Albert. Mr. Hougland farmed successfully in Boon Township until his death, which occurred August 11, 1878. Mrs. Hougland has since resided on the home place adjoining Boonville, the farm being operated by two sons of her first husband, John L. and Benjamin F.
