[Helen W. Peeler, The Descendants of Thomas Hoover, (Lincolnton, NC: 1981)] Miriah Barbara Warlick and her husband Thomas Hoover lived on about 200 acres on Potts Creek in (what is now Lincoln County, NC) that was deeded to her by her parents. Thomas inherited his father's land, purchased land and was granted land by the state in the area where Crowell Memorial Church is located. He was not a soldier in the Revolutionary War but furnished supplies for the Militia (Book A, page 210, USA with NC, War of the Revolution, State Dept. of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC.)

The Hoover Family
This report was given at the Hoover reunion which was held each year either at someone's home or at a designated place. The record goes as follows:
"A record of John Hoover's family translated from German. Mr. J. E. Hoover of Lincolnton County attended the Hoover reunion Friday at the home of Mr. C. W. Hoover, on the Statesville Amity Road, in Barringer Twp. Mr. Hoover is a great-grandson of Thomas Hoover from whom all Lincoln County Hoovers descended. When he decided to attend the reunion he gathered up some family records found at the old home of Thomas Hoover's grand daughter, Mrs. Monroe Seagle.
The record of Thomas Hoover's family, written by himself in German, was translated by Mr. J. H. Dingelhoef of Statesville. The record is so interesting that the "Landmark" gives it this way.
"The register of the children, with surnames and age, of H. Thomas Huber and his wife.
Born in the year of Christ, 1775, the 31st day of January, afternoon between 3 and 4 o'clock, my daughter Barbara was born, in waterman (Waterman is a sign of the Zodiac).
In the year of Christ 1776, 28 of October, between 3 and 4 o'clock, my son Solomon was born, in the sign of the face.
In the year of Christ 1780, 31st of January, my daughter Elizabeth was born in the sign of the crabfish.
In the year of Christ, 1784, the 15th day of January, my twin children were born, the name of the son, John Philip Huber, and the daughter named Eva, in the sign of the balance.
In the year of Christ, 1787, on the 4th of March, my daughter Magdalene was born. (No sign for Magdalene.)
Mr. Hoover (or Huber as the German has it) must have decided that the eight children completed the family for at this point in the record he set down the following touching prayer for his children:
"The God of Peace sanctify these children with His blessing and let them grow up in wisdom and grace to God and to all mankind; and strengthen and keep them eternally happy through Jesus Christ, their Lord and Saviour."
That prayer of dedication of the children is a lesson to all parents. Following the prayer is a record of two additional births. Ten children was the standard family in the old days - as follows:
In the year 1789, 4th January, a son was born named Thomas Huber.
In the year 1791, the 19th of January, Jacob Huber was born.
Of the ten children, it is remarkable that seven were born in January."
Always on the first Sunday in May, the Hoover family have their reunion at the American Legion Hut with a big dinner and a belief meeting in Troutman, NC, with all the descendants of the Hoover or Huber (which is the German spelling) family.
The above taken from a story printed in the "Statesville Record and Landmark."

[There are other versions of this account - see "Local History and Genealogy Notes, vol. VI," by Philip Leonard, Gaston Public Library, Gastonia, North Carolina. Also, by the versions that I have seen, when the writer says that eight children have been named so far in the list, six have actually been named. When the writer concludes that ten children were born, only eight have been listed. Although the writer says that seven of the ten children were born in January, only six named were born in January.

Note: There was another Henry Hoover in Lincoln County who died in 1824 and left a will naming a wife - Mary Eliza - and five children. Some researchers list this Henry Hoover as the son of H. Thomas Hoover. However, the 1833 will of H. Thomas Hoover names son Henry as an heir, so son Henry is not the same Henry who died in 1824. Also, Henry is still alive and included in a complaint that the heirs of Thomas Huver - namely, Solomon, Daniel, Henry, Philip, Thomas, Daniel Seagle and wife Sarah, Jacob Brem and wife Eve, George Sides and wife Polley, and Barbara Shuford - brought against their brother Jacob Hoover and wife Elizabeth to force sale of land that they inherited.
I don't know at this time who the Henry who died in 1824 was; I wonder whether he may have been a brother of H. Thomas Hoover.

"As to the causes which brought the early settlers to this section of the South, these were the same as those which sent them to other parts of the world. In some cases the cuse was incidental, as in the above example. But on the part of those who came directly from the ancestral homeland, there was much dissastisfaction with the treatment received at the hands of intolerant rulers. This hardship was felt by Palatinate German and Swiss alike. The latter are also represented here by sush family names as, Bauman (Bowman), Behm (Beam), Huber (Hoover), Hoffstetter, Muller (Miller), Schneider (Taylor), Schenck, and Yoder. Some were influenced in their coming by Wanderlust, a trait of character possessed by the German people in all their history. But no doubt the primary motive for many was the desire to acquire, to accumulate wealth, and to improve their conditions in general." [Rev. L. L. Lohr, The Germans in North Carolina West of the Catawba, Lincolnton, NC, printed in THE PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN, vol. XII, no. 4, April 1911]

  Notes for Miriah Barbara Warlick:
Died "In the 70th year of her age."

In 1770, Barbara Warlick received from her father Daniel Warlick a deed for 200 acres of land in Lincoln County, NC (Tryon/Lincoln Co., NC Deed Book 1:128-129. Recorded 16 Dec 1769.) After receiving the land, Barbara married H. Thomas Hoover. After the death of their mother and father, the surviving heirs filed a Bill of Complaint (Lincoln County, NC Equity Court) against their brother Jacob Hoover and wife Elizabeth to force him to agree to a sale of the land rather than a division into eleven parcels. Subscribing to the complaint were Solomon Hoover, Daniel Hoover, Henry Hoover, Philip Hoover, Thomas Hoover, Daniel Seagle and wife Sarah (Hoover), Jacob Brem and wife Eve (Hoover), George Sides and wife Polley (Hoover), and Barbara Shuford. Note that Henry Hoover is still alive - further proof that the Henry Hoover who died in 1824 in Lincoln County was not the son of Thomas and Barbara Hoover.

  Notes for Barbara Hoover:
Barbara Hoover was referred to as Barbary Goodman in the will of her sister Elizabeth Kistler nee Hoover. I doubt that Barbara Hoover married again to a Goodman, since the will of her brother Thomas B. Hoover in 1855 refers to her as Barbara Shuford. I have seen reference to another Barbara Hoover who married a Goodman - I believe that there was confusion over the Barbaras in the Eve Kistler will.

2 October 1828 - Mecklenburg Co., NC Deed Book 21:486 - Wm Smith of Charlotte, NC for the sum of $89 sells to Philip Hoover a tract of land in Mecklenburg County lying on the waters of the Catawba River and bounded by the river, joining the lands of John Fite and James Spratt containing 232 acres. Formerly sold by George Fite to Wm Berryhill in 1825.

The land was a bequest made by Peter Fite deceased to George Fite deceased. George Fite stipulated that the land was to be sold and the amount equally divided between his children. Pleasant M. Fite and Peggy Fite were two of his children. The deed was dated 22 March 1828.

29 June 1829 - Mecklenburg Co., NC Deed Book 21:554 - Sally Fite of Lincoln Co., NC sold all her claim and interest in a certain tract of her legacy in Mecklenburg County at Martin's Ferry to Philip Hoover of Lincoln Co., NC for $50.

His death was noted in the "Mecklenburg Jeffersonian" on December 27, 1848. He died on December 20, 1848 at 83 years old. Name was misspelled Philip Hoovel. I believe that the age given in the death notice is also wrong - that he died at 63 years of age.

Note: the following transcription is made from the original will of Philip Hoover which is in the North Carolina Archives. The will was recorded in Mecklenburg County Will Book I, pp 146. The recorded copy from the will book contains significant errors that were made at the time the will was copied into the will book.

His death was noted in "The Western Democrat" on June 15, 1855: Col. Thomas B. Hoover, May 27, 1855, about 67 years old, in Canton, Mississippi.

He died at Canton, Mississippi May 27th 1855 Aged 67 Years
And According to his Request Was Buried Here Feb 12th 1856.

Became a wealthy cotton planter in Mississippi.

[Helen W. Peeler, "Descendants of Thomas Hoover] "Thomas B. Hoover, son of Thomas Huver, went to Mississippi. He wanted to be buried in N.C. when he died. A man from Mississippi returned his body to his home. The coffin is supposed to be made of solid lead. The man also brought along the marker, which is an obelisk type marker. He brought these from Mississippi on a 4 horse wagon and afterwards sold the wagon and returned on the train to his home."

[Lorena Shell Eaker, German Speaking People West of the Catawba River In North Carolina 1750 - 1800, (SCK Publications: 1994), 230.] His will is filed in Burke Co., North Carolina estates, and he mentioned his siblings and their heirs. Brother Jacob and sisters Sarah Seagle and Elizabeth Kistler were still living. He mentions Robert B. Wheeler of Wilmington, Dearborne Co., IN and his three children born to his wife Jane and William F. Hoover of Wilmington, Dearborne Co., IN is to receive money when he becomes of age. Executors: Nephew Thomas H. Brin of Charlotte, NC and Henry R. Coulter of Madison Co., MS.

Note: Executor Thomas H. Brin is Thomas H. Brem, son of sister Eve Hoover and her husband Jacob Brem, and the same Thomas H. Brem that was nephew and executor of Henry M. Hoover, brother of Thomas Hoover, who died in 1850.

In 1830 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, a Thomas B. Hoover was listed as the head of household in the census. There were two males age 30-40, four males age 20-30, and four males age 15-20. There were no females listed. This may have been Thomas B. Hoover before he left for Mississippi.

A Thomas B. Hoover was involved in numerous land transactions in York Co., SC - he may have been the son of H. Thomas Huver and Barbara Warlick:
1823      William Dedman agreed to allow Thomas B. Hoover to purchase 175 acres of land on Turkey Creek that Dedman had previously offered to buy. [K:77, 78]
1823      Thomas B. Hoover purchased a 1/4 acre lot in Yorkville. [K:79, 80]
1825      Thomas B. Hoover sold to John Blair 4 acres near Yorkville. [K:301]
1824/26      Thomas B. Hoover purchased two 6 acre parcels from William E. Hayne in Yorkville. [L:5]

1852      T. B. Hoover sold to Samuel E. Braton et al a lot in Yorkville. [P:459]

A Warren G. Hoover appears in both the land records and as a Civil War soldier from York County, SC - he may have been the son of Thomas B. Hoover. He left York County for Gaston Co., NC.
