Aldo, I just saw your query. Hoyland Bettinger was actually quasi-adopted by my distant cousins Jacob and Agnes Bettinger. His parents were Frank Allen Bateman and Winona Tadder Bateman, who died in 1894 and 1899 respectively. Some of my information is from original research, and some is according to his two daughters, with whom I have had contact in the past. Although he kept the Bettinger name, he did not remain close with his adoptive "parents." I have more information if you would like to contact me privately.
