p. 300 1203 ELI HOVIS (250) b. 1815, m. 1839, Nancy Stroup, and later, Lavina Hoffman, dau. of Jacob Hoffman III.
His children:
  Catherine Hovis...  4623 ...  1840 d y.
Mary Ann Hovis....  4624 ...  1845  
Jacob Hovis.......  4625 ...  1847  
Margaret Hovis....  4626 ...  1849  
Nancy Hovis.......  4627 ...  1851  
Louisa Hovis......  4628 ...  1853  
Noah Hovis........  4629 ...  1855  
John Hovis........  4630 ...  1857  
Rosa Hovis........  4631 ...  1859  
As a source, Rucker has demonstrated over and over that she was guessing wildly at dates.  Even so, it's hard to believe any author could assert dates that were so wrong.
