CHARLES A. HOVER, merchant, Spencerville, a son of Cyrus and Martha (Past) Hover, was born in Delplios, Ohio,
October 25, 1850. He was raised on a farm, and having obtained a fair education in the common and academic schools,
taught more or less for several years. His first business enterprise was at Spencerville, with R. H. Harbison,
to whom he sold out his interest after fifteen months' partnership. In August. 1883, he purchased a stock of groceries
and again embarked in mercantile business, and in February of the year following, took in as partner J. M. Biner.
Their trade is steadily on the increase, as a result of close attention to business and the courteous manner in
which they attend to the wants of their customers. Mr. Hover was married September 21, 1881, to Miss Mercy E.,
daughter of James and Jennie (Baker) Sunderland, born in Auglaize County, Ohio, March 28, 1856. They have been
