HOOVER, Jacob My great great grandfather, Jacob Hoover, is buried West Union, Fayette Co., Iowa. His gravestone says he was born 1797 Lincoln Co WV. Obviously, there was no West Virginia in 1797. He married Elizabeth Rosier 1834 Shelby Co, Ohio; her parents, Lawrence Rosier and Esther Kayser (Kaiser) were married Harrison Co WV. There were also Hoovers in that area. Any ideas why Jacob's gravestone would say Lincoln Co WV? I believe his parents were Jacob Hoover and Susannah Garver.

Lovejoy - looking for my g.grandfather Lovejoy - first name unknown. Married Mary Ellen Moses abt 1886. Mary Ellen was b. Mar 1870 in Putnam Co., WV. She died giving birth to my grandmother 25 Mar 1890 in St. Albans, Kanawha, WV. My grandmother was Clara May Lovejoy and she had a sister Florence Lovejoy born in 1887. The family story is that G.Grandfather Lovejoy died of a
"broken heart" after the death of Mary Ellen. It is possible that he was from Putnam Co., near Scotts Depot or Lincoln Co.,WV Mary Ellen's father was James Richard Moses who lived near Scotts Depot. After the death of Mary Ellen and her husband,
the children were raised by Martha W. Moses Shumate and Viola Jane Moses Dodson, sisters of Mary Ellen. Have been unable to find records of births or deaths in Kanawha or Putnam. Can someone help? Has some heard this story connected to a Lovejoy. Any help would be appreciated.

William Prichard. I need information on two William Prichards, one born circa 1850 and the other circa 1802. The first William Prichard was b. abt 1850 & lived in Lincoln County with his wife Cynthia Harless. They had a son named Marshall b. 3/7/1881; d.2/13/1954. Cynthia parents were Charles and Mildred Harless, with her b. circa 1853/55. I need to know who
William's parents were. I found a William Prichard (22 yrs old) in the 1870 census living with a William Prichett/Prichard and Mary "Pollie". But they are 68 & 65 yrs old respectively. She is obviously too old to be the mother of children ranging from 22 to 3 yrs old - and he is probably too old also. Is there a generation missing? Are these grandparents?
It gets more interesting. One of the children is Zachariah. I THINK this is same person who married a Mary Jane and had a child named Mary Bell Prichard. Mary Bell married Marshall Prichard. Therefore, if William and Zach are brothers, then Mary Bell Prichard and Marshall Prichard were first cousins! This all sounds logical but I can nail it down definitively. I need to know who the parents of William and Zach were in the 1870 Lincoln County census, and I need to know if Zachariah (= Zacharis Jackson Pritchett???) married a Mary Jane (Lastname?) and if the 22 yr old William was a brother who married Cynthia Harless? I would dearly appreciate help with this tangle, including Mary J(ane)'s maiden name and parentage, and any information on Mary
"Pollie" who was married to William Pritchet and age 65 in the 1870 census. Her birthplace supposedly OH and his North Carolina. I would be willing to pay a fee to a real expert in Lincoln Co genealogical sleuthing, if that would help.
Jackie Pritchard Wed Aug 21 1996
Zan Cremeans (b. circa 1843). Zan married Sarah Margaret Stephens, daughter of David Stephens. Does anyone have any info on David Stephens or his wife? Zan's father was Preston Cremeans & his mother Anna Eliza Angel. Any info on either of these people? Preston was born circa 1815. Zan had a son, Eli Washington Cremeans (b. 3/8/1875; d. 11/4/75) who married a woman named Anthela Sansom (Anthelia/Anthely and Sansom or Sampson). She was born around 1884. I can not find any parents listed for her. I understand she died about 1973 in Logan Co under the name of Stollings or Stallings (2nd husband).
Any help on these matters would be greatly appreciated. I would consider paying for someone's time if they were expert & efficient in tracking down Lincoln Co data.
