 did the fieldwork for this report in 1942 but the fieldwork has not been checked because of the great distance of this cemetery from the city of Logansport, the large size of the cemetery and the fact that war had just been declared on Germany & Japan.  

Hoover Cemetery has been used for burials as early as 1845 when many of the Miami Indian Tribe still inhabited this vicinity but the owner of the land, (the late), Benjamin Hoover didn’t formally transfer the Title of the land for the cemetery  to Deer Creek township until after the close of the Civil War opening it for use as a Public Cemetery (hoping for the building of a Union-meeting house or church).



R.B.W. Jr. wrote “Caution that one of the field workers in her quest to supply birth dates may have resorted to subtraction which may lead to errors in the true dates. The L’Anguille Valley Memorial Association doesn’t encourage this as it may lead to erroneous dates. Example: Memorial stone may state 86 yrs. 11 mos. but the actual date may have been 86y-10m-29d. This would leave the birth as occuring in a different calendar year.

The late local historian, J.Z. Powell says that “Enoch Brumbaugh” was buried in this cemetery after he was murdered by Amos (Amer) & William (Bill) Green in Jul 1885. Presume his grave is now unmarked by a decipherable monument.
