"B. S. HOOVER was born in Seneca County, Ohio, September 18, 1833, and was the fourth of a family of thirteen children born to PETER and MARRY A. (HOOVER) HOOVER, natives of Lorraine, France. The father, who was a shoemaker, brought his family to the United States in the spring of 1833, and settled in Seneca County, where he bought forty acres of land; this he sold in 1840, and came to this township, bought 190 acres of wild land and cleared up a farm. In 1849, he built the first saw mill in the township, if not in the county; he continued to add to his estate until, at the time of his death by accident April 9, 1863, he was owner of 800 acres in this and Marshall County. MRS. ANNA HOOVER died February 9, 1849, and both were members of the Catholic Church. B. S. HOOVER attended school and worked for his father until he was twenty-one, and then sold books, farmed on shares, and worked out by the month for several years. In the spring of 1858, he started with a party for Pike's Peak, but turned back on reaching the Missouri River. In 1866, he bought the old homestead, which he still owns, and on which he engaged in farming and stock-raising until 1880, when he went to Winamac and engaged in the dry goods trade with R. S. ROGERS for six months. In 1881, he bought an additional farm near Pulaski, on which he now lives. He was married, March 18, 1862, to SARAH E. BLISS, a native of New York, who bore him one child - LOLA M. - and died December 12, 1866. On April 13, 1871, MR. HOOVER married ELIZA J. RHINEHART, a native of this county, and to this union four children were born, three of whom are yet living - URA E., MAUD M., and ETHEL A. MR. HOOVER is a Democrat, and has served as Assessor of the township."
