He moved to Randolph Co, NC in 1762, anglicized his name to Andrew Hoover ca 1763. - Burke's Presidents ANDREWS NAME WAS ANDREAS HUBER, ANGLICIZED TO HOOVER CIRCA 1763. ONE OF ANDREWS SONS WAS JOHN, GRANDFATHER TO PRESIDENT HERBERT HOOVER. BIOGRAPHY: Andreas Huber, b. 1-23-1723, at Ellerstadt, district Dunkheim, in the Palatinate the 9th and youngest child of Gregor Jonas Huber, a well-to-do landowner and vintner. An entry in the old Lutheran church book at Ellerstadt gives the record of his baptism: "Anno 1723. Den 29 Jan. 1st, Jonas Huber und Seiner frau ,Anna Maria ein sohn gebohren und den 7ten Feb. Andreas getauft." The house of his birth, number 17 Fleissgasse, was demolished in 1900, but the barn and vintner's building were left. When he was 15 years old he emigrated to America, where two of his brothers him, preceded him,6 Johannes on the Mortonhouse, 8-24-1728, and Christian on the Dragon 9-30-1732. Andreas arrived at Philadelphia, 9-9-1738, on the Two Sisters. He stayed with his brother s and friends in the rich farmland of Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania until he was 22 years old when he marrled Margaret Pfautz, who came to America with her parents on the William and Sarah, arriving 9-8-1727. In 1746 Andreas and Margaret moved to Carrol County, MD, and, in 1750, patented fifty acres of land called Mirey Spring along Little Pipe Creek at the head of Chesapeake Bay near Uniontown. Here their children, except probably the youngest were born. During these years Andreas Huber changed his name to Andrew Hoover. About 1772 Andrew took his family through the wilderness by oxcart to the Uwharrie River in Randolph County, NC. In 1779 he bought 200 acres on the east side of the river. Much land was available because the new state of North Carolina had taken it away from the British and Tories. Andrew and his sons subsequently acquired many acres of the best land in the state. 16, 43 They cut an empire out of the wildern('ss. established a dynasty, and prospered. 17 was wild country. Daniel Boone was a neighbor on the Yadkin, of which the Uwharrie was a tributary. Many of the traditions of the Uwharrie are Hoover traditions."The story goes that Andrew Hoover was not afraid of man, beast, or devil, that he climbed to the top of EagleNest Rock when others were afraid to, that he swam the raging Uwharrie to save the lives of his horses, that, while others in the settlement were home' in fear, he set out to face the headless horseman on the Uwharrie trails and brav(' the other ghostly figures that moved like lost souls down the valley. " Andrew built a grist mill at the fork of the Uwharrie, and this was an important granary of the Revolution. The family also gave $500 to the Revolutionary cause --a large sum of money in those days. But there is no record of these Hoovers as soldiers in the Revolution. A small business center grew up at the forks around the Hoover mill, where the big wheels operated a sash mill to hew logs into slabs when not turning to grind corn. This mill remained in the Hoover family for more than a hundred and fifty years. In 1792 Andrew left the mill for his son Jacob to run, and he retired to a farm where Cedar Run joins the larger river. In 1794 he made a Will, appointing his wife and eldest son, Jonas, as executors. Shortly afterwards he died and was bur
