My Hoovers --

Descendants of ABRAM HOOVER (HUBER) - Feb 12 2006


1. ABRAM HOOVER (HUBER) was born on Apr 11 1798. He died on Dec 5 1848. He was buried in German Baptist Cemetery, Lower Paxton Twp., Dauphin Co., PA. Tombstone is "Abe Hoover"
Cemetery is along Union Deposit Rd. in Lower Paxton Twp., Dauphin Co., PA
Rebecca Hoover is buried there also.
The same cemetery also has George Hoover b. May 4, 1809, d. July 11, 1862; Elizabeth Hoover, wife of George Hoover b. May 1 1809, d. Feb 28, 1893; Sarah B. Hoover, b. Mar 10, 1820, d. Aug 3, 1883 wife. of Samuel Hoover b. May 1818, d. July 29. 1888; and Samuel E. Hoover d. Feb 1868 son of George and Elizabeth Hoover.

Abram b. 1798, George b. 1809, and Samuel b. 1818 could be brothers.

Three Abraham Hoovers are listed on the 1830 Census. (Pg. 34 and 35)

1. Abraham Hoover 30-40, female 30-40, Male-15, two females under 5, and two females 10-15. (pg. 34)

2. Abraham Hoover 30-40, female 30-40, male 10-15, female under 5, two females 5-10, and one female 10-15. (pg. 35) This one looks to fit the 1840 Census below the best. A daughter (age >20) is missing in 1840.

3. Abraham Hoover Sr. 50-60, female 50-60, two males 15-20. (pg. 35) Could be Abraham's parents.

Besides daughter Elizabeth and son Isaac, Abram had other children listed in the 1840 Census as follows: male 20-30 and female 5-10. The male 20-30 must be about 20-23 in 1840 assuming that Abram was married between age 18 and 20 (in 1816-1818). Abram was born in 1798 according to the tombstone.
