Mary Catharine Reeder
I can remove the picture for Mary Catharine Reeder memorial # 84168310 if you like. It seemed clearer and may be able to be zoomed better to see the date, for the requested edit.
Thank you for your work.

Regarding the Hoovers at Wolfsville and Ringgold, Maryland
Dear Mike Hahn,

Greetings from Australia, and thank you very much for your information, photos and other materials about our Hoover family. It is always helpful to get bits and pieces together and since I live so far away it is especially nice for me to see the photos!

Regarding our Hoover line, and possibly because there are SO MANY of us, it is not at all surprising that there is also some confusion. I grew up always hearing that we were related to President Hoover (as your Find a Grave site says), but now, when I did my DNA test I discovered we are NOT related at all. Not even remotely. So I guess that is that.

But, if this makes anyone feel any better, we ARE related to William Hoover, the man with the vacuum cleaners, and most likely with J. Edger Hoover (who was also of a Mennonite background).

Also, there is another classic confusion regarding Anabaptists (Mennonites) coming from Switzerland. Anabaptists continued to leave the Swiss canton of Bern until well into the 1700s, and there are still some congregations in the area to this day. But, our Hubers / Hoovers did not come from Bern.

We Anabaptist Hubers came from Zürich, and we all fled the canton in the mid-1600s. We came first to the Elsass (Alsace) and later to the Kraichgau in Baden, Germany (the Sinsheim, Heidelberg area) by around 1665. By this time there were NO remaining Anabaptists in Zürich, except a few old ladies that were married to Reformed men. No congregations were left and emigration was totally forbidden and contacts cut off. Hence anyone claiming an Anabaptist background, and who says he or she left Zürich after 1650 is confusing something. Yes, our origin is Zürich, and yes we are of Swiss roots, but we came to America from Germany, not from Switzerland.

Does this make any sense to you? I just thought since you put so much work into this, you might like to know. All the evidence is, by now, widely known, but the definite work on the Anabaptists of Zürich (including our Hoovers) is by now Die Zürcher Täufer 1525-1700 by Urs B Leu and Christian Scheidegger. It is a truly excellent work and a joy to read, providing you handle the language.

All the best to you,

Peter Hoover

RE: edit for Hiram Williar
Sure, I will send it in email - not sure if there is a way to do attachments here. Thanks!

Let me know if there is any particular research I can help with. I'm working on the Willards in my tree - I think you can view it without being a paid member. I'll send a link to that too, in case you would like to see it.

You'll find more old photos of Grandma's that I scanned and uploaded last spring.

Mike, you created this memorial for Martha J Koontz and you have listed her as a daughter of Evans Koontz. According to the dates Evans would have been 11 years old when she was born. I can't find her on any census living with Evans. Where did you get the info and could she possibly be his sister? Any help appreciated. I trying to fit her into this puzzle. Evans was my husbands gg grandfather.

RE: Mary Smith
Thanks for that explanation. Are you sure though that the note in the Bio is accurate? See

Find A Grave Memorial# 9912413

Are there two different John H. Werkings? Or was the same man married to two different Marys who both died in 1932? That doesn't seem very likely.

Thanks,
Wanda
