p. 50 REV. JOHN HOVIS (5) b. 1768, m. about 1790, Sarah Katherine Rhyne, dau. of Jacob Rhyne, pioneer.  They lived on Hoyl's Creek, a little northeast of old Harden Station, a part of the old Rhyne homestead.  John Hovis fought in the Revolutionary War; he was a member of Capt. James Houston's Company, and fought in the battle of Ramsour's Mill.  (See Hunter's Sketches, Page 196.)
His children:
  Jacob Hovis.......  250 ...  1791.
Elizabeth Hovis...  251 ...  b 1793.
Sarah Hovis.......  252 ...  b 1795.
Mary Hovis........  253 ...  b 1797.
Susannah Hovis....  254 ...  b 1799.
David Hovis.......  255 ...  b 1801.
Solomon Hovis.....  256 ...  b 1803.
Philip Hovis......  257 ...  b 1805.
George Hovis......  258 ...  b 1807.
As a source, Rucker has been demonstrated over and over that she was guessing wildly at dates.
