In the morning we learned it was Mr Hause's birthday (86th) and that he had spent eighty of these years on the same point of land. He was born of Dutch parents in the town of Warwick, Orange Co. N.Y. March 3, 1799, a babe in his mothers arms when the "Father of his Country Died". In 1802 his parents removed to the "lake country" and purchased a small place called Ovid Center, the same farm lately owned by Geo Helfuean, son-in-law of your townsman A. Flickinger, Esq. In 1805 or 1809 his father sold this purchase to his brother ... and bought out the improvements of a squatter on a two hundred and fifty acre lot which from him has ever since been called Hause's Point. Here Charles first distinct memory of practical life begins, although he now recalls several incidents of their carving into the wilderness; two weeks on the way in a covered wagon, as was then usual drawn by a yoke of oxen. Very few advantages were offered his youth, but few schools, no churches and their nearest mill was at Waterloo. The wild unbroken forest was spread out all around them with here and there only a settler. The timid gentle deer fed with their herds on their fields of grain till he had reached his early youth. When he had reached his majority he bought thirty acres of the rear part of his father's purchase and began life for himself. In 1826 he married Miss Elizabeth Young, and together they toiled adding to his little lot which with a portion set off to him from his father's estate now makes his farm one hundred and four acres of excellent grain land. Five children blessed their union, two sons and three daughters. One of these sons he gave to his country and he fell in the war for the Union at Cold Harbor, Va., and now lies in an unknown and unnamed grave. His wife, the faithful sharer of his struggles and triumphs, died in 1865 and two of the three daughters since then. He married a second time but was a second time bereaved and now, like a lone forest tree, almost branchless and leafless, blasted by many storms and winds of adversity, he waits his own removal."

        VIII. James Updike, Jr. From Portrait and biographical album of Lenawee County, Mich., containing full page portraits and biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens of the county, together with portraits and biographies of all the governors of Michigan and of the presidents of the United States, published by Chapman Brothers, 1885, p. 249, 250: "JAMES UPDIKE, JR. The finely appointed little farm of eighty acres which occupies a portion of section 13, Franklin Township, became the property of the subject of this sketch in 1875, and he has since bent his energies to its improvement and cultivation, with most admirable results. The proprietor is a gentleman of more than ordinary intelligence and good taste, and while having a proper respect for the wherewithal to make life comfortable, has embellished his homestead with the various features which render it one of the most attractive spots in the township. The buildings are of modern style, the fields are fenced in a neat and substantial manner, and everything about the premises is kept in first-class order, nothing allowed to go to waste or become an offense to the eye. Around the residence are fruit and shade trees with a fine orchard in the rear, while the live stock and machinery give evidence of the care and thoughtfulness of the proprietor. Our subject, the son of one of the earliest pioneers of this county, first opened his eyes to the light in the primitive log cabin, which was the first dwelling of his parents in Tecumseh Township, and which was located upon land which had been but slightly cultivated before his father took possession of it. The latter, also James Updike, a native of New York State, was reared to manhood in his native county, and married Miss Belinda Hause, whose birthplace was not far from the early home of her husband. They continued in the Empire State until after the birth of three children, when they came to Michigan and located upon the land which they occupied until retiring from active labor. The parents of our subject came to this county prepared to meet hardships alnd difficulties, and proved themselves equal to the emergency. They succeeded in building up a comfortable home, occupying the log cabin but a few years and then removing into a good frame dwelling. The father was a man of excellent judgment, kind and generous as a neighbor and friend, and became known as one of the most thorough and successful farmers of Tecumseh Township. He is still living, and makes his home with his son Martin G., a resident of Tecumseh Township. He is n0ow over eighty-four years of age, having been born Oct. 1, 1803. During his residence of over forty years in this county he has made many warm friends, and has abundant reason to feel that his life and labors have not been in vain. The wife and mother departed this life at the homestead Nov. 30, 1873, when about sixty-five years old. Both parents were devoted members of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the days of their youth and strength, and the father is still identified with the old society. James Updike, Jr., was the eighth in a family of ten children, four sons and six daughters. Of these, three sons and two daughters are living and residents of this county. James, in conmmon with his brothers and sisters, remained under the home roof and availed himself of the instruction afforded at the district school. Upon reaching manhood he was married, April 2, 1873, at the home of the bride in Tecumnseh Township, to Miss Atlanta A., daughter of John T. and Caroline H. (Thompson) Bates. Mr. and Mrs. Bates were natives of New York State and were married in Cortland County, where their three children were born, the wife of our subject being the youngest of the family. Her birth took place Nov. 5, 1853, and she was fifteen years of age when her father came to Michigan and located on a farm in Tecumseh Township. The mother had died in Cortland County, N. Y., in 1863, at the age of thirty-seven years. Mr. Bates subsequently married Miss Salina Coyle, who accompanied him to the West and remained here until after the death of Mr. Bates, which took place in the village of Tecumseh, July 31, 1877, when he was sixty-three years of age; Mrs. B. then returned to New York and is now a resident of Homer, that State. Mr. Bates was a man of much force of character, and became quite prominent in the politics of the county. He affiliated with the Republican party and with his estimable wife, was a member in good standing of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The wife of our subject continued with her father until her marriage, in the meantime receiving a good education and developing those elements of character which have constituted her a true wife and mother. Of her union with Mr. Updike there have been born two sons—Earl B., Dec. 7, 1876, and Lucius C., Dec. 29, 1878. Mr. Updike, politically, uniformly votes the Republican ticket. By good management and industry he has accumulated a competence and has something laid by for a rainy day."
