Henry HOVIS of Indiana
Henry W. HOVIS was born July 1, 1840 in Noble County, Ohio. He died June 11, 1935 in Nashville, Indiana. He was the son of Henry HOVIS and Sarah HOKE/HOGG. He married Elizabeth E. BOHALL July 9, 1864 in Brown County, Indiana. Henry was said to be a basketmaker, and it is my belief that he was a maker of the famous 'Bohall baskets'. He was also a preacher, and played the fiddle.
Their children were, Seth, Mary C., Margaret C., and Martha Jane.
My ancestor is Margaret, 'Maggie', who married Samuel S. Martin. She lived and died in Jackson County Indiana.
