    Nemaha co, NE: W. H. HOOVER, one of the prominent pioneers of Nemaha County, was born in 1833 in Miami County, Ohio. His boyhood was spent in Northern Indiana, and his first claim was made at Nemaha City, Neb., in January, 1855. This claim he still owns. In the fall of 1855, he was elected County Clerk and Register of Deeds, which offices he held until 1867. In 1864, he was appointed Clerk of the Second Judicial District, which office he has since continuously held. Mr. H. is, with two or three exceptions, the oldest settler in Nemaha County. During his long residence here, he has dealt extensively in real estate in Nemaha and Richardson Counties, and is the owner of much valuable land. Mr. H. is a Republican, and, owing to his long official career, affable manners and straightforward way of doing business, has made a wide and favorable acquaintance in the State.
