The even spacing of Rucker's (1938) birthyears suggests they're estimates, and experience has shown that she was guessing wildly at the dates she gives.  Therefore, lacking better estimates, I have used the children's marriage year as an estimation of their birthyear (because the average male marries at age 23 and the average female at age 19).

p. 38 5 ELIZABETH HOYL, b. 1737, m. 1759, George Hovis, Sr., pioneer of the Hovis family.  Their farm was near the old Peiter Heyl place, and was of considerable extent, reaching a good distance up both river and creek.  George Hovis conveyed a part of this large farm to his son, Frederick Hovis, who lived there many years, until he sold it and moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee.
Her children:
  Frederick Hovis...  35 ...  b 1760.
George Hovis Jr...  36 ...  b 1762.
Margaret Hovis....  37 ...  Aug. 18, 1763.
Susannah Hovis....  38 ...  b 1766.
John Hovis........  39 ...  b 1768.
Andrew Hovis......  40 ...  b 1770.
Peter Hovis....... 41 ...  b 1772.
Michael Hovis.....  42 ...  b 1774.
Sarah Hovis.......  43 ...  b 1776.
As a source, Rucker has been demonstrated over and over that she was guessing wildly at dates.
