    Notes 
    • Charles Leason Hoover, the head of the Madison County Hoovers, was born in March of 1796 in Rowan County, North Carolina, into a Quaker family that can be traced back to the Yadkin River area of Daniel Boone and further into Maryland. The extended Hoover family first moved to the Richmond area in Wayne County, Indiana, in 1806.  This is where Charles grew up and married Lucy Webb.  Charles and Lucy eventually had fourteen children, three of whom died in infancy in Wayne County.  Charles and Lucy moved their family to Madison County and purchased land in Jackson Township on the north bank of Pipe Creek.  During the Civil War, five of Jacob and Lucy's sons--John, James, Mark, Emsley, and Enos--served in the army of the North.  After the war, sons Emsley and Enos are shown as owning Jackson Township land on the 1876 plat map.  Another son Mark Reeves Hoover married Sarah Ann Neese, daughter of Jacob Neese, discussed above.  The father Charles Leason Hoover died January 13, 1861.  His wife Lucy, born in 1797, predeceased him in 1859.
