If I am not mistaken, Wesley Hoover was "native and to the manor born." His
father lived in Pulaski county at a very remote day, and died there. His
mother then removed from Pulaski to Pike county, where she resided until
her death. Wesley was a citizen of Hempstead county for a number of years,
living in the Scoggin neighborhood, but the better part of his life was
spent in Pike county. He was a man of strong, vigorous native intellect,
loved good company, was full of fun, and enjoyed a good joke as well as any
man living. He died in the city of Little Rock, a few years ago, being at
the time a Representative in the Legislature from Pike county.
