Looking for information on Samuel HOOVER born June 19th 1813 in Pennsylvania. The birth date is calculated from information given at the time of Samuel's death on Janurary 1st, 1889 in Continental, Putnam county, Ohio. Samuel was married July 4th, 1833 in Crawford county, Ohio to a Sarah CASTO who is thought to be part of the CASTO clan from Cumberland county in southern New Jersey. My Samuel and Sarah next appear on the 1850 census for Paulding County, Ohio. At some point in the after 1855 Sarah disappears from the picture and Samuel weds his second wife, Hannah CLAPPER. Census indicates that she was born in New York in 1828. I believe she was related to some CLAPPER's in nieghboring Putnam county or a George CLAPPER family from New York who appear on the 1850 Allen County, Ohio census. Hannah died in Emmet county, Michigan in 1912. My GG grandfather, Andrew C. Hoover is shown in the 1892 Paulding County Atlas on the north west corner of section 12. This intersection was referred to as "Molasses Gap". A school house is designated as being on this property. This School house was according to my family a Church built by either the original Samuel (b.1813) his son Samuel (b. 1842) or his grandson Samuel. In 1899 this church is indicated as a "Christian" (New Light, or Disciples of Christ?). Some 20 years later after apparently having been abandoned, it is a Church of God. Jo Ann Garman, another Paulding county Hoover descendant said she spoke to Ray Keck or someone at the Historical Society in Paulding and they indicated that it was originally a Dunkard Church.
