FREDERICK HOOVER was born in Wayne County, Ind., January 27, 1828. In his native county he attained his majority,
and followed farming until 1862, when he came to this county, settling in Madison Township. There he remained about
eight years, when he purchased a tract of land, in Sections 4 and 5, Cicero Township, containing 125 acres. Of
this farm he has about seventy five acres under cultivation and well drained. It averages fifty bushels of corn
and about eighteen bushels of wheat to the acre. His corn he feeds to his stock; he raises principally cattle
and hogs. During the war and after, Mr. Hoover was engaged in mercantile business, in partnership with Mr.
Ad Jackson, in Tipton. At this he continued for about seven years, when he sold out his interest and returned to
agricultural pursuits; he has been twice married, first in 1851 to Miss Evehne T. Miller, of Wayne County,
Ind., whose death occurred in 1861. His second marriage occurred January 10, 1866, to Martha J. Manifold, also
of Wayne County. By his first wife he has two children now living, Jacob M. and William M. By his second wife,
he has one child, a daughter, also living, named Mary E. Mr. Hoover takes quite an interest in the culture of bees,
of which he has at present twenty eight hives in splendid condition. Both he and his wife are members of the church.
He is politically a member of the Democratic party.
