(Witness) BioMRS. HARRIET HOOVER.
Mrs. Harriet Hoover, of Aspinwall precinct, Nemaha city postoffice, is the widow of the late well known physician and surgeon, Jerome Hoover, who was born in Miami county, Ohio, August 9, 1809, and died in this county, May 27, 1876. Nemaha city owes much to this public-spirited man and citizen, who was one of the founders and first settlers of the town. He is still cherished in affectionate memory for his generosity and beauty of character, and his name and deeds are not likely to be soon forgotten. He had settled, shortly after his marriage in 1849, on a ranch in Indiana, which he soon afterward bought and on which he remained two years, and then came to Nebraska and pre-empted the town site of this town. The fine parks which adorns the town was donated by him. He had inherited property, and made money in his undertakings. He was liberal to a fault, and while this made him an ideal citizen it prevented the accumulation of means which otherwise his abilities would have accomplished. As a Republican he was elected to legislature, but declined to be a candidate after that. He was foremost in everything affecting the welfare of the town and its citizens, and his high ideals and enterprising spirits were responsible for much good that was accomplished there.

Mr. Hoover was a son of William Henry Hoover, a miller of Indiana, and his wife Sarah Curtis, a native of Bath, North Carolina. The latter died in Indiana past middle life, and he died in Nebraska at the age of seventy-five. They had come here from Indiana in 1855 and settled at Nemaha city. They reared four sons and five daughters.

Mr. Hoover was first married to Miss Ann Prill, on August 28, 1829, and they had nine children, eight sons and one daughter, and the three who grew up were as follows: William H., who was born in Ohio, January 14, 1833; Burl. J., born December 27, 1835, died January 17, 1904; and Johnson P., born August 27, 1837, and died in Nemaha county in 1900, leaving one son.

Mrs. Hoover, who married Mr. Hoover, July 4, 1849, soon after her eighteenth birthday, was in maidenhood Harriet Tann, and was born in Monroe county, New York, December 20, 1830, and was reared on the home farm and received but limited education. Her parents were John and Rachael (Doud) Tann, the former of whom was born and married in England, and of his seven children six were born in England and one in New York. His first wife died, and he was married in 1826 to Mrs. Hoover's mother, by whom there were six children. Mary Ann, the wife of Moses Ward, died in Indiana, and her five children died soon after; Frederick Tann, a farmer at Rockport, Missouri, died leaving three children and had lost five; Mrs. Hooveris the third of these children; Elizabeth is the widow of Burl. J. Hoover, mentioned above; Lorenzo died of a wound received in the Civil war, leaving two daughters; and Arthur died at the age of eight months. The father of these children died in 1839, leaving his widow without property, and she was afterward married to Alexander Jamieson, a southerner, and she died in 1843, at the age of forty-eight.

Mrs. Hoover now resides with her son F. E. Hoover on the farm of one hundred and fifty-six acres in Aspinwall precinct, which was pre-empted by Johnson P. Hoover, and which was rented for several years before Mrs. Hoover took up her residence on it as her favored spot for passing the remaining years of her long and useful life. She has been the mother of nine children, and three of them are still spared to her, and she is also the grandmother of some bright children. Her eldest child, a daughter, born in 1850, died in infancy. Mary Jane, born February 2, 1852, died January 18, 1854. Lawson, born February 7, 1854, died November 19, 1855. Lucretia, born June 6, 1856, died January 6, 1865. Arthur, born May 4, 1858, died December 30, 1865. Flora, born January 12, 1861, has her second husband, T. C. Hacker, living in Red C loud, Nebraska, and she has three children by her former marriage. Frederick E., born August 5, 1863, married Minnie Chambers, and they have the following children: Forrest E. born April 19, 1886; Francis, born June 8, 1888; Mabel, born February 7, 1892; Vera, born September 10, 1894; Velma, born July 3, 1899; and Jerome, born February 16, 1902. Edward, born May 12, 1865, died October 27, 1895. Harriet is the wife of L. F. Bradfield, in Oklahoma.2

ObitHenry David's obituary was published in the Rochester Sentinel on 11 February 1889:

DIED - After a long and painful illness, David Hoover, one of the oldest settlers of the county, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Henry E. (Emma B. Hoover) Camerer, south of town, Sunday and was buried Monday afternoon at Mt. Zion cemetery. Deceased was widely known as the Mt Zion miller and also as an exemplary citizen and kind neighbor.15 
ObitHenry David's obituary was published in the Weekly Republican on 14 February 1889:

Mr. David Hoover, one of the early pioneers of this county, departed this life at the residence of his son-in-law Mr. Edward Camerer, Saturday night. He was a brother to Isaiah Hoover, who died some time since. David Hoover will be remembered as the miller at Mt. Zion. He had been very feeble for some years, and it is probable he was fairly anxious to leave mortality behind and enter into life eternal. We would be pleased to write a brief history of his life and sojourn in Fulton county if someone would kindly furnish the data and outline of the principal incidents.16 
(Witness) BioRinaldo P. True was born in Fulton county, Indiana. February 18, 1859, the son of Pulaski and Elizabeth (McClary) True, the latter of whom was a native of Virginia and came to Fulton county in 1854 with her parents, Ephraim and Catherine McClary, who were pioneers of this county and died here. Elizabeth McClary True was born February 14, 1834, and is still living. Pulaski True came to Fulton county with his parents, Samuel and Arathusa (Stone) True, pioneer settlers of the county who are buried in Mt. Zion cemetery. He died in October, 1859, at the age of twenty-five years when Rinaldo P. True was seven months old. The mother of our subject married a second time, taking for her husband David Hoover, and to this union, five children were horn, four of whom died in childhood, only one, Sidney Hoover, of Bristol, Tennessee, now living. Rinaldo P. True was educated in the public and high schools of his home community and then attended the normal school for a time. At the age of seventeen years, he took up school teaching as a profession, which he followed until he was thirty-five years of age. At that time he decided to engage in the more lucrative business of conducting a restaurant, and in conjunction with this, he has managed a highly successful baking business known as the Rochester Bakery, of which he is the sole proprietor, and his business has been an exceedingly successful venture. In 1887, he married Estelle Mitchell, born in 1861, the daughter of Charles and Isabel (Collins) Mitchell. Charles Mitchell was born in Carroll county, Indiana, in 1834, and came to Fulton county with his parents when he was still a small boy, and his wife was a native of New York. To Mr. and Mrs. True have been born three children: Max M., Lucy, and Grace. Lucy True was educated in the graded and high schools of Rochester and in DePauw University, from which she graduated, having majored in music and English. She then studied art in Indianapolis and is now a teacher of art and music in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, having previously taught those subjects in .Albion, Montpelier, and Hartford, City, Indiana. Grace True was educated in the graded and high schools of Rochester. She took an extra year in high school studying typewriting and shorthand. She was then employed in the office of the Rochester Sentinel until her marriage to John A. Barrett, which occurred in 1922. In fraternal circles, Mr. True is a valued member of the Masons, the Knights of Pythias, and the Modern Woodmen of America. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
