Please contact me if your doing research on the Hoover family. I have various documents on this family and I'm willing to share if you would like to provide what part of the puzzle you have. I am from New Jersey originally and might be able to give you insight into the area in which Joseph M. Hoover lived. I am especially interested in finding out the names of his parents and any additional information about his children.


I would like to address the birth year of Sylvaneous Hoover.

Birth: Aug. 29, 1846
Hunterdon County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Sep. 21, 1920
Tazewell County
Illinois, USA

I know from DNA that I am related to a descendent of Sylvaneous Hoover (I am the 2nd great grand son of Eliza Ann Hoover). We believe the date on his grave stone is incorrect. He was probably born in 1843 a day after the death of his father Joseph.

The 1850 census states Sylvaneous was born about 1844 and is age 6. In 1850 he was living with his maternal grandparents Sylvaneous and Nancy Young. In addition his older sister Eliza Ann Hoover was in the home.
