Nancy - I guess that would be the $64,000. question. Ines Hoover b. 1790 appears to have been the son of John H Hoover b. 1740-1750. There are two schools of thought on John H. Hoover. 1 is that he was aka John Wilhelm Huber first born son of Sebastian Huber/Hoover Sr. John Wilhelm was b. 1745 in Tulpehocken but there is no record of a John Wilhelm or William making it to Pendleton. Unfortunately John H. does not appear to have been involved in the various land conveyances as were the (other?) children of Sebastian Hoover Sr nor is he involved in the land divisions after Seb Sr's death. It's not impossible that he received his piece of the pie earlier but we've found no record to indicate that was the case. Theory 2 is that John H. Hoover was descended was from another (possibly related) line of Hoovers. There is a small notation in Tulpehocken - Virginia Records that a George Hover d. 1761 at the mouth of the Seneca (which is in Pendleton Co) and this is where John H. Hoover spent much of his life. Theory 2 1/2 is that John H. Hoover came into Pendleton late in life possibly ca 1800 at age 50-60 with a couple of young children in tow - and, bless his heart, a couple more to come. Unfortunately there is very little paperwork on John H. I hope to be able to spend some on Tulpehocken and Lancaster Co Pa records to see if I can find something on the George Hover who d. 1761. Any help with John H. Hoover b. bef 1750 or George Hover who d. ca 1761 in then Augusta Co Va would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sandy
