Elias Grimes
Thanks for your work Mike. Elias Grimes who married Margaret Sellman must be a relative of the Cornelius Grimes who married Elizabeth Sellman. Any idea on his parents?

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.
