I’ve finally added the revised family pages for George Hoover (ca 1766-1847) of Fayette County, son of Andrew and Catharine (___) Hoover and George Hoover (ca 1735/40-1813) of Armstrong county, son of Michael Hoover. These pages—especially George Hoover of Armstrong County—include some substantial changes from their prior versions, so descendants of Christian Hoover, William Matthias […]
I’ve recently discovered that George Hoover, son of Andrew and Catharine (___) Hoover, of Fayette County lived in Union Township his whole life. Therefore, he can not be the George Hoover who owned property in Westmoreland County from 1779 through 1799 and died in Armstrong County in 1813. How Did We Get Here? Before I […]
One of the pieces of data I have for Andrew Hoover Jr. has intrigued and perplexed me. During her research in this Hoover family, Luella Schuamburg Hoover was sent a deed from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in which Andrew named Yost Herbaugh as his attorney to receive from Catherine Liebrich, relict of Nicholas Liebrich, late of […]

I’ve been doing a lot of Huber/Hoover family research lately—mostly for the family of Andreas Huber (1754), my presumptive Hoover ancestor. If the identification of him being from Ellerstadt is correct, then Andrew had two—possibly three—older brothers who immigrated to the US ahead of him. I wanted to look into those families and the families […]
If you search the web, read published genealogies or the official biography of President Herbert Hoover, everywhere you’ll find that his ancestor was from Ellerstadt, Palatinate, Germany. But did you know that he was initially identified as the Andreas Huber from Trippstadt, Palatinate, Germany? Or that he might actually be from Ittlingen, landkreis Heilbronn, Baden, Germany? In this article, I’ll examine the past and present thought on this Andreas Huber’s German origins and the impact it has on identifying the origins of my ancestor Andreas Huber.
