    T. and O. HOOVER

    T. and O. Hoover, saw-mill; P. O. West Milton. Of the business men of Newton Township, none are more deserving of notice than the gentlemen whose names head this sketch; they are descended from pioneers of Ohio their paternal grandparents were among the first to leave the beautiful "land of summer" for the primeval forests of the Northwest Territory; in the fall of 1801, David E. Hoover left North Carolina for the purpose of making Ohio his future home; he located in the extreme northern part of the present limits of Montgomery Co., in this place he passed the remainder of his days, serving one year as a member of the Ohio Legislature from Montgomery Co., and fifteen years as Justice of the Peace of Randolph Township from this it will be inferred that his life was a success and full of usefulness; he reared a family of fourteen children, of whom the father of our subject was next to the youngest; he was born in Montgomery Co., and his life has been given to the milling business on the Stillwater, in his native county; his wife was a Canadian by birth, and emigrated to Montgomery Co. when only 10 years old, with her parents; six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hoover all of whom are living. T. Hoover was born in 1844, and O. Hoover in 1846; about seven years ago, they purchased the saw-mill which they are now operating; it is located in the southern part of Newton Township, Miami County, and is supplied with ample water-power the year round besides lumber, they manufacture all kinds of turned chair stock. Oscar Hoover was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Bartmass, April 19, 1873; they have one child.
