Note: The date of birth of John Hoover, the founder of "Necessity," has not been learned, but it is known that one of his nine or more children was born in 1748, and since two of his sons do not appear to have accompanied their parents to Maryland, the probability exists that they were born earlier and that they had already established their own homes elsewhere, prior to the mid-career Maryland migration of their father. Their birth during the 1740's, sugests that he was born during the early 1720's or before. Because of that uncertainty, together with the uncertain date of his father's immigration, it cannot be determined whether or not he was of American birth. If the identification is correct, John's first Maryland migration was to the Frederick County area East of the Monocacy, where he apears to have tarried a few years before settling just South of the Mason-Dixon Line, as established in 1767, at the two springs, at the head of Spring Run, near the present village of Ringgold, in the morning shadow of South Mountain. From real estate records it is known that his wife bore the Christian name of Mary, and Mrs. Hoover tells us that her maiden surname probably was "Watson." Having noted that on August 29, 1769, he had purchased a farm from Sarah Watson, Executrix, and William Watson, Executor, of the Estate of David Watson, it was attempted to strengthen her conjecture by examination of that Deed, only to discover that John Hoover had actually purchased "Harry's Grove," or Grave, as sometimes appearing, from Michael Miller, who had not received his Deed thereto from the then deceased David Watson, and as recited in their Deed to John Hoover, it was being so executed at the request of Mr. Miller. Since early Lancaster County marriage records have not been preserved, the source of Mrs. Hoover's information has not been learned.

Mrs. Hoover states that Christian Hoover of Owens Creek, near Graceham, Frederick County, was a brother of John Hoover of "Necessity," in support of which she cites a Deed executed by Johannes and Anna Hoover of Lancaster County, PA, dated November 30, 1787, conveying title to the 208 acre Owens Creek farm to Christian Hoover, for the nominal sum of Five Pounds. While that record indicates a close kinship between Johannes and Christian, it's late date, and the widely differing age brackets of the children of that Christian, and the children of John of "Necessity," suggests a somewhat similar difference in their own ages. 1790 Census Records show that the family of Christian then consisted of nine members, six of whom were males, and that only one of them, other than himself,was then more than 16 years of age. It also indicates that three of their ten children were born after that date. That record does not
reflect the ages of the females. His ten children were Mary; Martin; John; Catherine; Christian; Peter; Daniel; Magdaline; David and May.
The conclusion would be that it was Christian s/o Christian of Owens Creek, who in 1803 bought and occupied the "home farm" portion of "Necessity, "except that the Deed thereto recites that the purchaser was a resident of York County, PA. It can be conjectured that although he had last
lived in York County, that reversal of the then normal direction of migration, does not exclude him from consideration as belonging to the Owens Creek family.
