Hiram Jacob Fetterman
Emma K. Fetterman

Hiram was the oldest of six children born to Anna C. Kuhns and Noah Fetterman. Hiram first showed up in the Allentown Pennsylvania Directories for 1887 and 1889; he was working for Adelaide Silk Mills as a laborer in these directories. He was also listed in the Allentown Directory for 1890 with his occupation being a laborer, but no company was listed here. He showed up living in Allentown, PA, with his wife Emma and sons George W., Henry H., and Edwin C. in 1900. They were living at 225 Locust Street at that time. By 1910, he and Emma were now married for 27 years. Their sons, Henry H. and Edwin C. were still at home with them. Hiram was now working as a watchman for a silk mill, and they were renting a home on 7th Street in Allentown, PA.

The records of others show Hiram as also being the father of William B. and Clinton Henry Fetterman. I cannot be sure of this as the census records for 1910 show that Hiram and Emma were married at 27 years with one son, Henry C. being 27 years of age at this time. It could well be that Hiram was married previous to his marriage to Emma. I will be doing more research on Hiram.
