This is a transcription of the John Jacob Hoober’s patent for 210 acres situate on the southside of Pequea Creek in present-day Providence Township. Jacob Hoober received a warrant for the tract 24 Jan 1733. It was surveyed to him on 28 Jan 1733.
After a warrant is issued, the Surveyor General directed one of their surveyors to make and return a survey of the requested tract. Jacob Hoober’s warrant was issued 24 Jan 1733. On 28 Jan 1733 a survey was made of 210 acres in present-day Providence Township, then part of Martic Township. This is Jacob Hoober’s survey.

One deed I’ve been working on helped me catch an error in my database and straighten out a family line. All by following the inheritance of land from one generation to the next.
Daniel Hoover of Conestoga Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania was born ca 1783 and died sometime between 24 Sep 1850 and 17 Nov 1851. He was a carpenter and apparently had a large family that included 15 children. Here is what I learned about his family from deed records.
Recently, I’ve started a document to record the facts I’ve been compiling for each Hoover—especially the land transactions—and became frustrated when I couldn’t locate any Strasburg Township property for Henry Huber, son of Ulrich Huber, even though other deeds named it as his place of residence. Today, I finally found it!
There were two Henry Hubers living near Pequea and Beaver Creeks in the Martic/Conestoga/Strasburg/Lampeter township area in the mid-to-late 1700s. This post is about the family of the Henry Huber who married Catharine Good, daughter of Jacob Good.
