Reuben B. Stotts was born in Elkhart County, Indiana, May 23, 1837, and is one of the large family of children born to Uriah and Mary (Brunson) Stotts. When Reuben was about eleven years old, he was taken by his father to Edgar County, where he lived nine years, thence to Monroe Township, Pulaski County, where he lived nine years; after living in Franklin Township three years and in Indian Creek Township one year, Reuben moved to Tippecanoe Township and here he has lived ever since. He was married on October 31, 1861 to Diana Brooke, who bore him five children, two boys and three girls, named William, Nellie, Sarah (deceased), Mary and Elza, and died on July 11, 1881. Mr. Stotts has chiefly engaged in mercantile business almost continually from 1858 to 1872, but has also farmed and worked at milling. Since 1872 he has been in the driven-well business at Monterey and it is stated, upon good medical authority, that to the free distribution of driven-wells, more than any other cause, is to be attributed the excellent health of the community.
