Louisa D. Clark Hoback
Birth: Jul. 8, 1823
Wayne County
West Virginia, USA
Death: May 22, 1885
Cass County
Nebraska, USA

Louisa is my 3x great grandmother. She married Robert Orr Hoback, Sep., 17, 1840. Possibly born in Huntington,Virginia. Her cause of death was consumption.

It has been rumored for over 100 years that she was the grandniece of William Clark (Lewis and Clark Expedition). She had always said that she was from an Native American heritage (tribe unknown). I could not find any trace of either rumor. I did see a photo copy of a letter dated around 1880, from her daughter Elisabeth Hall Hoback, stating this info. This letter was in posession of June Belle Bates James, Elisabeth's grand daughter.

I found a distant cousin whom I never heard of before (and lost contact with) with the same information. She had also told me that Louisa was refused burial on consecrated grounds. This was common practice in regards to Native Americans. In addition to Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Steve Flagg had found a headstone of Louisa and her son John Wesley Hoback in what is or was Factoryville, Ne.

Darlene is an incredible person and valuable friend. I would like to thank her for sponsoring my 3x great grandmother. Please visit her site.
