Descendants of John Hover and Catherine A. Barnhart

Generation No. 1

1.  JOHN4 HOVER  (JONATHAN3, HENRY2, JOHN HENDRICUS HUBER (JOHN HENDRICK1 HOVER)) was born 08 Mar 1800 in Pennsylvania, and died 12 May 1860 in Cadiz. Green Co, WI.  He married CATHERINE A. BARNHART 1821 in West Salem, Mercer Co., PA, daughter of J. Adam BARNHART and ELIZABETH LININGER/LEININGER/ LEYNINGER. (My Great, Great, Great, Grandparents) She was born 17 Jan 1799 or 18 Nov 1804 in York Co, PA, and died 04 Jan 1891 in Hartington, Nebraska buried at Hartington City Cemetery.

Notes for JOHN HOVER: By 1850 Census John Hover has moved to Wayne Township, Lafayette Co. Wis.  They have several relatives living with them.

Notes for CATHERINE A. BARNHART Hover: The Bottom on her tombstone reads:  "Rest Mother, rest in quiet sleep,While friends in sorrow, o'er thee weep"

Among the Birth and Baptism records of Brush Creek Lutheran Church New Salem Twp. Mercer Co. PA, (which later becomes Good Hope Lutheran church) I found a Catherina Barnhardt, born 17 Jan 1799 and baptized 12 Aug 1805.  She is the daughter of Adam Barnhardt and Elizabeth (Leininger).  She was baptized by Pastor John Michael Steck.  Her sponsor was Catherina Kruemer.  In 1799, Elizabeth, Catherine's Mother, would have been 17 or 18 year old.

However, her gravestone in Hartington Nebraska reads: Catherine A. Hover; Died Jan 4, 1891; Aged 86 yr. 11 mo. 17 days.   Calculated out this says she was born 18 Nov 1804????? This latter date works out better with her baptism date of 12 Aug 1805.  Anyway, I cannot explain the difference.


     i.   JOSIAH HOVER, b. Abt. 1822, West Salem, Mercer Co., PA; d. 19 Apr 1892, Perhaps Dixon Co. NE.

     ii.   ELISABETH HOVER, b. Bet. 1825 - 1826, West Salem, Mercer Co., PA; m. JOHN MADRELL; b. 1820, England.

     iii.   BENJAMIN HOVER, b. 1827, West Salem, Mercer Co., PA.


Notes for BENJAMIN HOVER: On the 1850 Census Benjamin Hover at age 23 is living with his mother and Father in Wayne Twp., Lafayette Co., Wisconsin. His sister, Catherine (age 11) and his brother Uriah (age 13) live with them along with several other persons: George Daniels (age 9), Charles Kane(age1), Sarah Kane (age 19), Catherine Madrell (age2), Elizabeth Madrell (age 25) and William J. Madrell (age 1).  The others are probably unidentified relations.

 Sarah Kane is his sister, married to Anderson Peter Kane and Charles Kane is probably their son. Where Anderson Peter is, I cannot guess.  (I find out later that he is mining in the West. See Below)

     iv.   PHEBE HOVER, b. 1830, West Salem, Mercer Co., PA.

      v.   SARAH HOVER, b. 28 Mar 1831, Greenville, Mercer Co., PA; d. 14 Dec 1901, buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Jo Davies Co., Ill..
