William E. Hogueland, who has been postmaster at Yates Center since 1897 and is a prominent member of the Woodson county bar, was born in Brown county, Indiana, Oct. 3, 1859. He is a son of William B. Hogueland and Cordelia Barnes, the former born at Philadelphia, Pa., on the ground now occupied by Girard College. William B. Hogueland moved to Indiana in an early day and located in Nashville, Brown county, where he was engaged in the mercantile business a number of years. He was a Republican in politics and was the first of his party to be elected to office in his township in Brown county. 1n 1869 he removed to Kansas and settled at Neosho Falls, Woodson county, where he engaged in the harness business. He was postmaster of the senate in the Kansas state legislature in 1873, and became prominent and well known in southeastern Kansas. He passed away in February, 1907, but is survived by his wife, who resides in Yates Center and is full of years.
William E. Hogueland was a lad ten years of age when the family removed to Kansas and he completed his schooling in the public schools of Neosho Falls. He decided upon a career in law and to that end began his legal studies in the office of W. A. Atchison, of Neosho Falls, where, by assiduous and attentive application, he was prepared for his admission to the bar, which took place March 10, 1879. Although only nineteen years of age at that time he opened an office at Neosho Fails and began the practice of his chosen profession. Two years later, when twenty-one years of age, he was elected clerk of the court in Woodson county and served in that capacity continuously for eight years. In 1889 he became a law partner of G. R. Stephenson, with whom he continued to be associated in practice eight years. At the expiration of that period he formed a partnership with Giles H. Lamb, with whom he is still identified in practice. The firm of Lamb & Hogueland is a leading one in the law practice of Woodson county and that section of the state and both members are men of strong professional ability. Their practice is both extensive and remunerative, and both Mr. Hogueland and Mr. Lamb are admitted to practice in all the state and federal courts. Mr. Hogueland owns valuable farm lands and town property. Politically he is a Republican. He was appointed postmaster at Yates Center in 1897 and has given such efficient and popular service that he has been retained continuously to the present time (1911).
In 1887 Mr. Hogueland wedded Miss Mattie R. Foster, of Wisconsin. Two children have blessed their union: Frank F. is assistant cashier of the Yates Center National Bank, and Alice B. is now (1911) a student at Baker University, Baldwin, Kan. Mrs. Hogueland is a member of the Presbyterian church and Mr. Hogueland affiliates fraternally with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.Pages 1296-1297 from volume III, part 2 of Kansas: a cyclopedia of state history, embracing events, institutions, industries, counties, cities, towns, prominent persons, etc. ... / with a supplementary volume devoted to selected personal history and reminiscence.
