The Life and Times of Marion S. Hoover
by Rex Maggert
Saturday, January 13 at 1 p.m. - Dayton Metro Library, Community Room 2-B, 215 E. Third Street, Dayton
Telling the stories of our ancestors is very important and Rex Maggert has a unique way of doing so. He dresses in character and portrays his great grandfather, Marion S. Hoover, who was born in Richland County, Ohio in 1870, and lived most of his life in southern Miami County and northern Montgomery County. Rex will touch on major events of Marion’s life and how they related to historical events of the Miami Valley such as the 1913 flood. His great grandfather worked on the Dayton, Covington & Piqua Traction line and spent 25 years working at the Bonebrake Seminary in Dayton View. Rex will also share how to “add flesh to them old bones” by using some unusual areas of research.
Our speaker, Rex Maggert, has been doing family history for about 20 years. He is a past-president of the Champaign County Genealogy Society and has been president of the Stillwater Civil War Roundtable for four years in Troy, Ohio.
