I believe this is a reference to Alice K. Hovious and her sister Viola Hovious. The name was spelled (or misspelled) several ways, including Hovis, Hovius and Hovios. They were the daughters of Thomas and Sarah F. Houston Hovious. Alice K. was born 18 Sep 1888 and married George W. Walker on 09 Mar 1907 in Monroe County. Viola married Benjamin J. Cooper on 30 March 1890 in Monroe County.

Webmaster note: The 1900 U. S. Census listed an 11-year-old Alice K. Hovious, living at 307 8th Street, Bloomington, with her widowed mother Sarah Hovious. Ben and Viola Cooper couldn't be located anywhere.
