Wayne,
I believe that the David Hoover you are referring too is:

David E Hoover b. Mirey Spring, Md
died 1 Jul 1841 on Stillwater, Montgomery Co.,Oh

married 1790 Mary Mast
married 9 Jul 1807 Elizabeth Curtis

Parents were:
Andrew Hoover and Anna Margaretha Pfautz

>From my notes section:
T. and O. Hoover, saw-mill; P. O. West Milton. Of the business men of Newton
Township, none are more deserving of notice than the gentlemen whose names
head this sketch; they are descended from pioneers of Ohio their paternal
grandparents were among the first to leave the beautiful "land of summer" for the
primeval forests of the Northwest Territory; in the fall of 1801, David E.
Hoover left North Carolina for the purpose of making Ohio his future home; he
located in the extreme northern part of the present limits of Montgomery Co.,
in this place he passed the remainder of his days, serving one year as a
member of the Ohio Legislature from Montgomery Co., and fifteen years as Justice
of the Peace of Randolph Township from this it will be inferred that his life
was a success and full of usefulness; he reared a family of fourteen
children, of whom the father of our subject was next to the youngest; he was born in
Montgomery Co., and his life has been given to the milling business on the
Stillwater, in his native county; his wife was a Canadian by birth, and
emigrated to Montgomery Co. when only 10 years old, with her parents; six children
were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hoover all of whom are living. T. Hoover was born
in 1844, and O. Hoover in 1846; about seven years ago, they purchased the
saw-mill which they are now operating; it is located in the southern part of
Newton Township, Miami County, and is supplied with ample water-power the year
round besides lumber, they manufacture all kinds of turned chair stock. Oscar
Hoover was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Bartmass, April 19, 1873;
they have one child.

Thanks,
Dave Sloan
