Notes

Cemetery is clean & on private property. Need permission to get to it. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "Cemetery on the Raymond Hoover farm. There may be as many as 20 additional graves, unmarked. Plot grazed and clean. Showalter Atlas of 1939 states Jacob Hoover settled on 625 acres along the Shenandoah River 2 miles below Timberville. Also mentions Emanuel & Annie Clive Hoover."
