  1. Allan, based on deeds and other records, I believe so, yes.

    Henry Hoover (K) had two children that he named in his will (1757)—John Hoover and Elizabeth (Hoover) Boyer. He left his property to his two children to be divided equally between them. Elizabeth and her husband John Boyer sold their share to her brother, John. The Boyers eventually settled in York County.

    John Hoover (K) and his wife Anna had children:

    • Christian Hoover
    • Ann Hoover
    • Henry Hoover
    • Jacob Hoover
    • Mary Hoover
    • John Hoover Jr.
    • David Hoover (of Upper Canada in 1801)
    • Christina Hoover

    John died in 1799, naming as executors his friend John Huber and son Henry Huber. They sold 144 acres of John’s land to Henry Bowman in 1799.

    Henry and Catharine (Good) Hoover divided their land between their two sons John and Jacob. They also had a daughter (name unknown) who was married to a Jacob Huber, possibly a neighbor.

    Jacob (K2) and his wife Barbara had children:

    • Henry Hoover
    • Jacob Hoover
    • Barbara Hoover
    • Christian Hoover
    • John Hoover
    • Martin Hoover m. Maria Eshleman??

    John’s will (1788) decreed that his land was to be sold once his youngest son turned 16—it was sold 25 Aug 1790. His brother John and brother-in-law Jacob were his executors.

    There is an inventory for Barbara Hoover of Martic township, possibly Jacob’s wife, in 1810 and an account in 1813 with administrators John and Martin Hoover.

    John Hoover (K2) and his wife Mary had children:

    • John Hoover (died without children)
    • Mary m. Peter Hoover, son of John Hoover (J)
    • Christina Hoover
    • Barbara Hoover
    • Esther Hoover
    • Abraham Hoover m. Mary Hoover
    • Ann Hoover
    • Susanna Hoover
    • Elizabeth Hoover m. Henry Krug

    John died intestate with two tracts of land, both of which were sold to him by Henry & Catharine Hoover. His son John received the land and sold 12 acres to his brother Abraham. After John’s death without heirs sometime between 17 Nov 1815 and 25 Jul 1818, his property descended to his siblings.

    If there are two Henry Hoovers (K) and (K2), have you sorted out who their children are?
