HOOVER'S CEMETERY

Hoover's Cemetery, known also a Mount Hope, and Athens Cemetery, is on the north side of SR-14, about three-tenths of a mile east of 650E - a few hundred feet east of the town of Athens, Henry Township, Fulton County, Indiana. A sign at the entrance reads "Hoover Cemetery, 1891."
Land for this cemetery was donated by Henry Hoover and William Rannells. William Rannells and his wife Susan were originally from Virginia, but removed to Ohio where they remained for some time before moving on to settle east of Athens, between Rochester and Akron, in Fulton Co., Ind. They brought with them a young slave girl, Fannie Rose, who died in 1855. She was buried in the Rannells family burial ground which was later made a part of Hoover's cemetery.
The Rannells house, home of William Rannells, and later used as a tavern or inn, was probably thirty rods, a little south & east of the old Mount Hope church, which was at the south-east corner of the cemetery. Traces of the old church foundation are still visible. (Fulton Co Ind Hist Soc Quarterly, Dec. 1968 (No. 2), pp. 5-6, 15; also Marguerite Miller, Home Folks, Vol. 2, p. 93).
The cemetery is divided into four sections: North, South, East and West. Rows run north and south; rows are numbered from west to east; stones read from north to south.
Readings made in 1974, 1975 and 1991.

RADER, Katharine, wife of Philip, d. Aug 10, 1852, ae 56y
[NOTE: Katharine (also Catharine) Sheets, b.ca.1794 No.Car. came to Ohio at an early date, and was perhaps the third wife of Philip Rader, Sr., of Montgomery Co Ohio. The Census, 1850 tells that all the children in the family were b.Ohio; also, David "Capt", the eighth child in this family, was b.Montgomery Co Ohio, a son of Philip, Sr., and Katharine (Sheets) Rader, indicating that the marriage of Philip & Katharine took place in Ohio.
Philip Rader, Sr., was b. August 12, 1782, at Bells Knob, Wythe Co Virginia, and was an Ohio Vet. of the War of 1812. He removed to Ohio in 1803, settling in Montgomery Co. According to tradition, the Rader ancestors - father, mother and three sons, Connrad, Jasper & John, left Germany to come to America ca.1750. The parents d. and were bur at sea, and the sons went to Virginia and on their separate ways. The Indiana branch does not know anything about them.
Fulton Co Ind history tells that Philip Rader, Sr. was m. (1st) to Miss Cress who died; and that there were four children born who also died (Rader family history says her name was Cross). No marriage record has been located to prove or disprove that statement. There is proof of the (2nd) marriage of Philip Rader to Elizabeth Siddon, January 30, 1812 (L. D. M. Brien, Montgomery Co Ohio Marriages 1803-1851). Elizabeth Rader, wife of Philip, d.1824, at age 32 years, and is bur in Old Mill Creek cem, Butler Twp, Montgomery Co Ohio (L.D.M. Brien, Montgomery Co Ohio Cem Records, p. 153)
Philip Rader, Sr., and his (third?) wife, Katharine (Sheets) Rader came to Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in 1842. They are householders of that twp & county in Census, 1850 with five children.

Philip Rader, Sr., d. November 2, 1853, at age 72y-2m-21d, and is bur in Sugar Grove cem, Butler Twp, Montgomery Co Ohio (L. D. M. Brien, Montgomery Co Ohio Cem Records, kp. 162). His will, dated October 29, 1853, proven December 12, 1853, and admitted to probate at Dayton, Montgomery Co Ohio, and recorded at Rochester, Fulton Co Ind, April 4, 1854, leaves his estate to "my children": Chnthian Julien; Mary Pearson; Catharine Jenkins; Andrew Rader; Henry Rader; Julien Rader; Bethany Stephens; "the heirs of my dau Henrietta Fentriss"; "the heirs of my dau Eliza Jane Ball"; son, David; dau Barbara Rader; son, Philip Rader (Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Wills).
Children of Philip Rader, Sr.: Cynthian, b.1812, m. (----) Julien; Henrietta, b.1818 Ohio, m.1837 to Joseph Fentres; Mary, b.1820 Ohio, m.

Ball; Henry, b.1836; Julyan, b.1838 Ohio, m. (----) Sheppard.
Henrietta, dau of Philip, Sr., and Elizabeth (Siddon) Rader, m. September 22, 1837 to Joseph Fentress (L. D. M. Brien, Montgomery Co Ohio Marriages 1803-1851). Joseph Fentres, age 34, b.Ohio, & Henrietta, 33, householders of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in Census, 1850, had children: Philip, 10 b.Ohio; (J. or I.) A., 8 b.Ohio; Jas., 6 b.Ind; Catharine, 5 b.Ind; Elizabeth, 3 b.Ind; and Davis, 10 months b.Ind. There was not found a record of this Fentres family in Henry Twp, Census, 1860. There is a record of a Joseph Fenters marriage to Clarissa Strong, March 14, 1858 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.). Joseph & Clarissa, both 54, and both b.Ohio, were householders of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in the Census, 1870, with Davis 20, and Martha E. 10. Joseph Fenters, age 64, b.Ohio (parents both b.So.Car) "widowed" was living with the household of Isaac & Lydia Sears in Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in Census, 1880.
Bethany Christine, dau of Philip, Sr., and Katharine (Sheets) Rader, m. October 31, 1844 to Jacob Stevens (L. D. M. Brien, Montgomery Co Ohio Marriages, 1803-1851). Since Philip Rader, Sr., and his family had already gone to Ind, it is possible that Bethany remained in Ohio, but not certain.

Although his son, Isaac, was in Fulton Co Ind as early as 1850, Solomon does not appear there until the Census, 1860, where he is a householder of Henry Twp with Sarah (b.ca.1808, Ohio), and Joseph (b.ca.1837, Ohio). Fulton Co Ind M.R. reveal that Solomon Puntius m. Sarah Friend, March 29, 1857.
There are names of several, perhaps th children of Solomon Puntious, but there are only four of whom we are certain: Isaac, b. October 20, 1820 StarkCo Ohio, m. September 20, 1840 Miss Mary Magdalena Wolheter (b.September 24, 1812 to George & Mary Wolheter, in Lancaster Co Penn; to Stark Co Ohio when about sixteen years old) and a few months later removed to Indiana and settled in Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, where their children were: Rachel b.ca.1840? Ohio, Louisa b.ca.1841 Ind, Jefferson b.ca.1843 Ind, Harriet b.ca.1846 Ind, Isaac P. b.ca.1848 Ind, Mary b.ca.1850 Ind, Lucretia b.ca.1854 Ind, and Elmira b.ca.1858, d.1869. (Historical Atlas Fulton Co Ind by Kingman Bros., 1883, p. 40).
Rachel Pontious, dau of Isaac & Magdalena (Wolheter Pontious, m. February 17, 1856, Abraham Pontius (Fulton Co Ind M.R.), his second wife, and had eleven children. Abraham Pontius was a son of Nicholas & Eve (Buchter) Pontius of Penn, b.1831 in Stark Co Ohio, and

m.1853 (1st) to Christina Kreighbaum in Elkhart, Ind. His first wife d.1854, leaving a dau, Sarah.
Another son of Solomon & Magdalena (Kreighbaum) Puntious was Moses Pontious, b.1832, Stark Co Ohio. He m.1852 Sarah Ann Eberhardt, and they removed to Ind in 1869, and settled in Henry Twp, Fulton Co. They are householders of that county & twp in Census, 1870 and 1880.
Joseph Puntious was another son of Solomon & Magdalena (Kreighbaum) Puntious, and was b.ca.1837 Ohio. No other info has been found concerning him.
Hester "Hettie" Pontious, dau of Solomon & Magdalena (Kreighbaum) Puntious, was b. March 27, 1838/37, and m.March 4, 1860, Adam Hoffman. (Fulton Co Ind M.R.). Adam Hoffman, b. October 20, 1835 Stark Co Ohio, son of Jacob & Magdalena Hoffman, was a resident of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in the Census, 1870, with Hettie, his wife (b.Ohio), and two children: Alsines E.

MELVIN, Solomon, died -----
[NOTE: Solomon Melvin was b.1797 in Delaware. The Fulton Co Ind Early Tract Book reveals that Solomon Melvin "of Hamilton C Ohio" purchased 40 a. land on October 27, 1838, in Twp 30N, R4E; and Solomon and Jacob Melvin are the only two householders of the name in the Census, 1840, for Henry Twp, Fulton County Ind.
The date of his death has not been determined, except that it occurred after 1850 (when he was listed in the census), and before 1870 (at which time his widow was living in the household of their son, Daniel).
Solomon Melvin m. Nettie M. ----- (b.1800 Delaware, d.1873). Solomon, age 53, and Netey, age 53 (both b. Delaward), were residents of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in Census, 1850, with four other persons in their household: Netey, Jr. 10 (b.Ind), Solomon, Jr. 18 (b.Ohio), Dan'l 12 (b.Ohio), and Debra 5 (b.Ind).
Children of Solomon & Nettie M. Melvin might include Samuel, b.1818 in Delaware, but this is not sure. Solomon, Jr., son of Solomon & Nettie M. Melvin, was b. September 26, 1831 in Ohio. Another son, Daniel 1835-1920, appears to be unmarried, and his household in 1870 included Mary N. 67 years (his mother, Nettie M.) and Deby A. age 21 (probably his youngest sister). (Census, 1870, Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind). Fulton Co Ind M.R. reveal that Debyan Melvin m. Geo. W. Alspach, October 12, 1871.]

There was only one Clevenger family in the Census, 1850 (Henry Twp) that had a child named Nancy. It was the Fielden Clevenger household which included nancy, age 18 (b.ca.1832). Nearby, in the household of Solomon Melvin, Sr., was Solomon, Jr., age 18.
Solomon, Jr., age 26, and Nancy, his wife, age 24, were residents of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind in Census, 1860, with a family including: Thomas 7, Sarah E. 5, Eliza J. 3, and James 9 months - all children b.Ind. Daniel Melvin, age 23 b.Ohio, a farm laborer, was in ths household, and was probably the brother of Solomon, Jr.
The Census, 1870 (Henry Twp) reveals that Solomon Melvin "an invalid" age 20 (probably a son of Samuel & Casse (Catharine) Melvin) was living with the family of Solomon, Jr. & Nancy Melvin.

An old burial ground, now abandoned, was once on the old Jacob Whittenberger farm, also known as Century Farm, more recently known as the Michael Porter farm, and was known as the "Old Whittenberger Cemetery." It was located about two hundred feet northwest of the Akron sewer pumping building, north of SR-14 at the west edge of Akron, Henry Township, Fulton County, Indiana.
A part of the old iron fence and one marker are all that remain.

NOYER, Delta, 1890-1926
(this marker, the only one found by these compilers in 1975, was placed there by Sylvia Noyer when she had a new marker place in the Akron Cemetery for Donald O. and Sarah Delta Noyer)

Manitou Chapter DAR, Genealogical Survey, Fulton Co Ind Cemeteries, 1935, recorded the following:

WELTON, Adeline, d. fall of 1837, ae 20y
WELTON, Fanny,d. in 1837, ae 18y
WELTON, Asher, Soldier War of 1812, d. Aug 1838
WELTON, Ada Low, dau of Anthony Low, Revolutionary Soldier, d. 1842
(no age or b.d.)
[NOTE: The first death in Akron (known then as Newark), was that of Miss Adeline Welton in the fall of 1836, which was followed in a few days with the death of her sister, Fannie. (Barnhart, History of Fulton Co Ind, 1923, p. 139.]

[NOTE: The Akron News, November 17, 1893 tells the following:
"Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Sippy of Richland Co Wisconsin are here visiting their old friends and relatives, the Whittenbergrers & Sippys. Mrs. Sippy's maiden name was Laura Welton and she was the first white child born in Henry Twp, occurring 56 years ago in a log cabin that stood in the yard where Eliza Slaybaugh's house now stands.
[Kate (Morris) Jennens told Jean C. Tombaugh, compiler of this book, in 1976 that the above-mentioned Eliza Slaybaugh's house was the "present" home of Josephine Slaybaugh Merley.]
"Her parents and three sisters are buried on Jacob Whittenberger's farm north of the house, the last one, a sister dying buried there 48 years ago. The spot has been carefully guarded all these years, first by fence which decayed and latterly Mr. Whittenberger has placed stones over the graves to mark and protect them with a neat iron fence. Mr. Sippy enjoys a prominent place in his Wisconsin home having servefd as sheriff & othr positions of trust."

[NOTE: Asher Welton, lhis wife and ten children are said to have arrived in Fulton County, Ind., in June 1836. They came with Dr. Joseph Sippy, William Whittenberger, Henry Bristol, Moses Worden, Uriah Bragg and their families, and Nathaniel Cogshall an unmarried man. The first purchase of land in Fulton County to be made by Asher Welton "of Kosciusko

County" was 80 acres in Henry Twp (T30R4E) on September 21, 1837. He died soon after, and his estate was "Settled Up" by Alfred T. Welton on November 11, 1839. Records indicate that the wife of Asher Welton was Ada (Adah J.) Low, dau of Anthony Low, Revolutionary war soldier.
We know for certain that Asher & Adah J. (Low) Welton had children: Adaline, b.ca.1817; Fanny, b.ca.1819; Julia; Asher, Jr.; Isaac; Celia S.; Laura E., b.May 17, 1837, first child born to white parents in Henry Twp. Alfred T., Hiram Low, Ransom M. and Seymour J. Welton were all householders of Fulton Co Ind, in 1840 and may have been older sons of Asher Welton. Their relationship to Asher Welton has not been determined. Alfred T. and Ransom M. Welton both appear to have married before coming to Fulton Co Ind, and Hiram Low Welton married soon after they arrived here.
The birth date of Alfred T. Welton is not known, however he is said to have come to Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, in 1837, and was first postmaster of Wesley - later called Akron. He was deceased by March, 1849, and Lot N. Bozarth was named Admr. of his estate. Name of the wife of Alfred T. Welton is unknown, however inscription on the grave marker for Minerva Osgood, wife of Melancton Osgood, tells that she was a dau of A. T. & S. Welton. Semantha Welton age 60 (b.ca.1790 N.Y.) who was living in the household of Lot N. & Clarissa Jane Bozarth, in Rochester Twp in the Census, 1850, might be the wife of Alfred T. Welton, but needs a little more proof. Fulton Co Ind Estate Book "A", p. 364 reveals the names of the heirs of Alfred T. Welton: (Polly M. (also called Mary Ann & Minerva), although not in the Estate Book mentioned above, should be named first because of her age - b.1825, d.1854 - was b.New York, and m. in Fulton Co Ind, to Melancton Osgood December 29, 1842. She died leaving small children: George N., b.ca.1845, Miron T., b.ca.1847, L. G. "Gardner" b.ca.1850, and Mary L. Osgood.); Grant; Caroline T., b.ca.1834 Ohio, probably living at age 16 with Semantha Welton (age 60) in the household of Lot T. and Clarissa Jane Bozarth in Rochester Twp in 1850, and m. Cyrus H. Robbins, November 18, 1852 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.); Chauncy R.; Melanston; Orange (J.?).
Hiram Low Welton was of Medina Co Ohio, when he purchased 80 acres of land in Henry Twp on March 25, 1836 (Fulton Co Ind Early Tract Book). His marriage to Hannah Sippy at the cabin of Dr. Sippy on January --, 1838, was the first marriage of Henry Twp. She was a dau of Dr. Joseph Sippy.
Ransom M. Welton, who may have been a son of Asher Welton, was b. May 15, 1815, and d. October 27, 1845 at age 30y-5m-12d. He purchased 40 acres land in Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind, September 21, 1837. His wife, Elsie M. (also calld Elcy, Elsa and Elizabeth M.), b. September 1, 1813 in N.Y., and d. August 4, 1867 at age 53y-11m-4d, m. (2nd) to Wm. Whittenberger, Jr., December 18, 1845 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.). Wm. Whittenberger & Elsa M. Whittenberger were named Admrs. of the Estate of Ransom M. Welton deceased, January 30, 1846 (Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Early Court Records). Wm. & Elsa M. Whittenberger, Jr., were residents of Henry Twp in Census, 1850. Their household included the children of Ransom M. Welton, first husband of Elsa M. Whittenberger. These children are also listed in Estate Book A, p. 129: Cordelia, b.ca.1836 Ohio, prob. m. December 16, 1855 John A. Hale, as per Fulton Co Ind M.R.; Harriet, b.ca.1838 Ind; Samantha, b.ca.1839 Ind; Harrison (Tyler), b.ca.1841 Ind; Clarissa, b.ca.1844 Ind; Celistina, b.ca.1845 Ind. After the death of his wife, Elsa M., Wm. Whittenberger, Jr. m. Hannah Strong, May 11, 1868 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.).
Clarissa Jane Welton (parentage unknown) b.ca.1820 N.Y., m. December 7, 1837 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.) to Lot N. Bozarth, b.ca.1813 Virginia. Two children were born: Caroline D., b.ca.1848 Ind; Nelson J., b.ca.1850 Ind. Lot N. & Clarissa Jane Bozarth were residents of Rochester Twp in Census, 1850. This household included their two children, and also Semantha Welton age 60 and Caroline Welton age 16. Lot N. Bozarth d. and lettrs of Adm were filed on April 8, 1856. During the February Term 1858, Fulton Co Ind, a complaint was

filed by Daniel D. Pratt -vs- Clarissa J. Bozarth as Admx of the Estate of Lot N. Bozarth, deceased, and as widow of said deceased, and Nelson J. Bozarth child of deceased; Guardian-ad-litem was appointed for N. J. Bozarth (Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Court Records). Clarissa Jane (Welton) Bozarth m. next to John Stevens, March 6, 1858 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.). On July 17, 1860, a complaint for foreclosure of mortgage was filed by John Stephens & Clarissa J. Stephens against Norman & Dincy Loomis; and during August Term, 1865, Clarissa J. Stevens Admrx -vs- Heirs of Lot N. Bozarth, deceased, petitions to sell land. (Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Court Records).
Charlott D. Welton (parentage unknown) was the first wife of Jesse Shields, early pioneer of Fulton Co Ind. They were m. June 13, 1844 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.). Charlott D. (Welton) Shields d.1844, and Jesse Shields m.1846 (2nd) to Margaret J. Robbins, and m.1872 (3rd) to Margaret McClung. Although the birth date of Charlott D. (Welton) Shields is not known, we do know that Jesse Shields was b. September 15, 1820.

[NOTE: Sarah Hoover, dau of Jacob & Sarah Hoover, m. Richard McIntire, June 17, 1855 (Fulton Co Ind M.R.).
Richard McEntire, age 25 b.Ohio, and Sarah, age 21 b.Ind, appear as householders of Henry Twp, Fulton Co Ind in Census, 1860. They are recorded again in Census, 1870, and with them is the mother of Sarah at age 68. Sarah (Hoover) McIntire's will, dated April 1, 1871 and proved November 7, 1873, leaves her estate to her "beloved husband Richard McIntire." (Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Wills). The will of Jacob Hoover of Fulton Co Ind, father of Sarah (Hoover) McIntire, was dated August 7, 1860 and proven April 16, 1861.
