William H. Hope. The subject of this sketch is a native of New York State and came to Harrison County in 1870. He was born in Greene County, N. Y., September 26, 1841, and is a son of William and Elizabeth (Swindels) Hope, natives of England. The Paternal grand parents were William and Ann, the grandfather on the mother's side being John Swindels, also of England. Our subject's early life was spent in New York, and in 1850 the family came to McHenry County, Ill. The father was a cabinet maker, and came to Iowa and engaged in the cabinet business. William H. Hope came to Iowa and engaged in a general store, in company with his brother, now living in Sioux City. He started a drug store in Little Sioux in 1879, and was burned out in 1890, but rebuilt the same year.
Mr. Hope was united in marriage, in December 1875, to Miss Belle Ellis, a daughter of Hiram Ellis. She died in 1876, and three years later he married Luella Ellis, a sister of his first wife, by whom six children were born -- Eva, Leona, and Ervin living, and three dead.
Politically, Mr. Hope is a Republican, and in his religious views a Methodist.
