Birth: 1840
Death: Jul. 24, 1909

Andrew J. Hoover was born in between 1836 - 1840. He married to Julia A. Razor on February 6, 1868, in McLean County, Illinois. He died July 24, 1909, age 72 years, in Brokaw Hospital, Normal, McLean County, Illinois. Andrew rests in peace beside his wife at Oak Grove Cemetery, LeRoy, McLean County, IL.

Andrew's obituary, at the LeRoy Public Library, is a transcripton. It is not the original news article nor a xerox of the original.
According to the transcription, Andrew was 72 at his age of death. This would make his birth year 1836/1837.
Andrew's memorial stone gives his year of birth as 1840. I have learned that mistakes can be made even in memorial stones and most certainly in transcriptions.
