    Notes 
    • “He was early appointed or elected to offices of greater or less responsibility. He was in 1825 a member of the legislature, the first that convened at Indianapolis. In 1832 he was appointed by General ?Cass, the Secretary of War, secretary to the commissioners appointed to hold two Indian treaties.

      In personal appearance, he is said to have been excelled by few; and his native dignit of bearing “gave the world assurance of the man.”

      HIs religious history, though showing changes in his church relations, evinces, nevertheless, firmness of principle. He was a member of the Society of Friends.

      In 1828, during the visit of Elias Hicks at Richmond, after his followers had separated from the meeting, Mr Hoover several times attended his preaching, i consequence of which he lost his standing in the old society. He did not, however, join the new, but remained for about fifteen years without any church connection. In 1830, he removed to a farm he had purchased on Noland’s Fork, a few miles from the town of Washington, where he united with the methodist Church, of which he was a devoted and devout member.

      Trained from his childhoodin the simpler modes and forms of worship, he was pained at the introduction of melodeons, organs and choirs, and absented himself from the meetings of the church, and finally withdrew.”

      “Within the last year of his life he united with the Fifth Street Society of Friends, of which he was a member at the time of his death.” [2]
