I am the oldest of Clifford's grandaughters and find it fascinating to read these old stories about my grandfather. I also have a copy of my grandfather's genealogy book passed down to me from my grandmother, Evelyn Hoard. Not only did he write about our genealogy, but, as I recall, other people's family histories as well. He passed away when I was 8 and I vividly recall him "typing away" late at night. At the time of his death, there were only 3 surviving grandchildren, but this number has now grown to 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grand children. Being the oldest grandchild by 6 years, I definitley have a special place in my heart for my Grandpa Hoard, as I called him. I spent many days of my childhood down at the "Hoard Haven" or "Hoard Heaven" as I see it. My grandma, Evelyn, is still living (89 in March 06') and still owns most of the original property established long ago. In addition to Mr. Gould's message, I also recall stories about Happy Hoard and his dog, Sandy, who are both buried in the Hoard Cemetery. Unfortunately, no one else in the family has "picked up" where Grandpa Hoard left off in the genealogy book, but nevertheless, I am always fascinated by old stories of the Hoard family hertiage.
