My Hoover Clan

Beginning with Jacob Hoover, Sr. and his wife, Elizabeth (unknown maiden name) to his son Jacob, Jr. and his wife also named Elizabeth (maiden name Shoemaker).

Onward to his son, John and wife Catherine (Ritchie), to their son, Isaac (named after his maternal grandfather, Isaac Ritchie) and Isaac's wife Louisa Marie Racer (of the DeCoursey line) and on down the generations...

I intend, with this blog, to document my Hoover family history with photos of family members and the cemeteries they are buried in. I will also post photos of headstones and interesting history of the family and these cemeteries.

Here is a photo of Isaac Hoover, born 11 Nov 1834 in Brocks Gap, Rockingham, VA, USA and died 14 Jan 1916 in Brighton, Washington, IA, USA.

Isaac is buried in Hillcrest Cemetery: Brighton, Washington County, Iowa, USA

Here is a view of the old section of Hillcrest Cemetery in Brighton:
