The information on Henry David Hoover and his family is from thefollowing email from Donna ?
Hi Janet,
I have these addresses for you: Paula Harry andBarbara
Paula is researching the Hoover family and Barbara is researching theDunlap's.

This is what I have from them:
Henry David Hoover, born May 8, 1826 - probably in Scrubgrass Twp. andhis wife
Ruth Dunlap, b. August 2, 1826 are both buried at Amity Church.
ch 1 William Findley Hoover
2 Edwin Hoover
3 Mary B. Hoover (I found this one in a cemetery record which neitherBarbara
nor Paula seem to have seen.)
4 Robert Clark Hoover
5 Alexander P. Hoover
6 Carrie B. Hoover
7 Luella Hoover
8 David Ambrose Hoover
9 Della M Hoover
David was a Civil War veteran - Co. F, 134th Reg., Pa Vols. This allstarted
with a page cut from a Bible that lists Henry Hoover and two wives - 1st.Mary
Say and I have no information on her as I am descended from the 2nd wife- Margaret
Kelly. born February 8, 1816 and died Feb. 20, 1857. She is buried atthe Scrubgrass
Presbyterian Church - the old stone church - and has a pointed tombstonewith
a hand pointing up, saying "Gone Home". Henry is not buried there. Idon't
have a birth date on him or a death date - born fairly early in the lastcentury
and we know he sold his farm in the 1870's. He had 13 children, Davidbeing
the first. Henry purchased some land from and David Say who I thoughtmight
have been Mary's father.
I was never able to find Henry's grave. As I said, he sold the farmin
the 1870's. The next thing we know is that the youngest son - ArchibaldAdair
Hoover returned to Venango Co. with his wife Priscilla Chillcot andsettled
near Polk. The Hoovers have been around Franklin ever since. PriscillaChilcott
was born in Armstrong Co. and my uncles remember going off to ArmstrongCo.
in the Apollo area for family reunions when they were children in the30's.
All contact has been lost with those people. I suppose there's apossibility
that Henry was buried there - although it seems strange that he wouldsell up
and leave when he was in his 70's. We may never know.
Back to Mary Say - The Venango Co. Historical Society is in theprocess
of copying all cemetery records in the county. They claim that "MaryHoover,
d. Apr. 20, 1836, 36 y., wife of Henry" is buried on the Morrison Lot andtherefore
assumed she was a Morrison. My Bible page definitely says Mary Say. Soshe
may have had some connection with the Morrisons. This is at ScrubgrassPresby.
Church. David's brothers - Samuel, Silas and James. James was born in1833 and
the next child I have listed is Rachael, born in 1840 - obviously by hissecond
wife, Margaret. The 4 brothers would have all been about the right agesto
fight in the Civil War.

James, the youngest son of William and Margaret Dunlap, was born in1793
Westmoreland County, PA., and lived there until he was forty-six years ofage,
then he moved to Butler County, in the same State, continuing there untilhis
death, in 1864. His life occupation was agriculture. He married Mary VanDyke,
25 Dec 1822. They may have been the parents of twelve children,I onlyhave
information on seven of the children. William Dunlap, was a native ofIreland,
and was born near the city of Londonderry in the year 1740, and came tothis
country in 1766, when he established the old Dunlap homestead inPennsylvania.
He married Margaret McAllister in 1766, place unknown. William was thefather
of nine children, most of whom settled in Pennsylvania, and are theprogenitors
of the Dunlap family in this country, members of which have migrated toalmost
every State in the Union.
In his will written 25 May 1834 , he only mentions two boys and two girlsliving.
