His fourth and present wife is Julia Ann Burns, born April 8, 1822, and married to Mr. Hess, September 4, 1878. Mr. Hess has been blessed with a family of fourteen children, eight of whom are living--Emery, the youngest, is married and resides on the old home place, while the rest of the children are all away and doing for themselves. Mr. Hess was a very early settler of this county, coming to Momence Township as early as March, 1839. He commenced on forty acres, but through industry and economy, has added to it, until he at present owns 520 acres of fine farm land."
