    • Source: HIstory of Cass County, Indiana.
      “The latter (Andrew Hoover) married Elizabeth Waymire, and removed to North Carolina, where he resided until the autumn of 1802, when, with a large family, he removed to the Miami country in Ohio. In 1806, the family settled on Middle Fork of Whitewater, a mile and a half north-east of where Richmond now stands. The circumstances attending his settlement have been related.”

      Roger Sappington in his BRETHREN IN THE CAROLINAS, p. 11, names the following nine German families as very likely Brethren who settled on the waters of the Uwharrie River in 1763-1764:

      Jacob Stutzman
      David Fouts
      Jacob Fouts
      John Fouts
      Michael Fouts,
      Andrew Hoover,
      John Mast
      Adam Varner
      Jacob Schwartz

      All of these men bought land from Henry Eustace McCullouch.  Except for
      Jacob Stutzman, who purchased his land on September 1, 1764, all of the rest
      bought their land a year earlier on the same day:  February 17, 1763.

      This was not a coincidence.  Hoover, Mast, and Varner were related to
      members of the Fouts families by marriage.  Andrew Hoover was married to
      Margaret Fouts, sister of Michael Fouts.  John Mast had married a Harmon,
      but his sons and daughters were married to Fouts and Hoovers.  Adam Varner
      was a brother-in-law of Michael Fouts.  These related families apparently
      moved to the Uwharrie River from the Pipe Creek area of Maryland a year
      earlier in 1762.

      The circumstances of Jacob Schwartz are largely unknown, and that is the
      main reason for this message.  Various Fouts compilers say that Jacob
      Schwartz was "a neighbor to Andrew Hoover in Maryland who sold out in
      Maryland on the same day that Hoover did."  Andrew Hoover sold his two
      tracts, "Mirey Springs" on Little Pipe Creek, and "Addition to Mirey
      Springs" near Big Pipe Creek, to Stephen Bowers on May 26, 1762.  If Jacob
      Schwartz sold out on the same day, one can speculate that he may have been
      related to Andrew Hoover by marriage.  If he did not marry a Hoover, perhaps
      he married a Fouts (since so many Brethren seemed to be related to that
      family).

      Jacob Schwartz was known as Jacob Black in North Carolina.  I think he was
      the Jacob Schwartz who was born in Webenheim in 1718, emigrated on the Ship
      Virtuous Grace in 1737, and was baptized by Michael Frantz at Conestoga in
      1739.  I think he was probably the Jacob Schwartz who warranted land in
      Warwick Township, Lancaster County, in 1752, but never got around to having
      it surveyed.  Almost nothing is known about his family except that he had a
      son Frederick Black, who married a Fouts daughter of Uwharrie and who moved
      with the next generation of families Fouts, Younce, Burkett, and Shearer to
      the New River headwaters in Wilkes/Ashe.  Frederick Black, along with Ulrich
      Kessler, was a leader of the early Ashe County (New River) Brethren.

      If anyone has any knowledge or ideas about Jacob Schwartz/Black, please
      share them.

    Front gate to current Hoover Estate
    The Andrew Hoover farm is now owned privately, and little can be seen from the roadway. This is the main gate, which keeps the estate private. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the home, viewed from the adjacent property, is very well maintained
