The large family includes five sons, three daughters, 50 grandchildren, 220 great-grandchildren, and 31 great-great-grandchildren.
Born near East Lynne, Mo., Mr. Hostetler resided in the Prophetstown, Ill. community until two years ago. A large group of Amish Mennonites from Prophetstown have moved to this southwest Missouri region in recent years.
