Hoover - John

Source: Crawfordsville Star, Jan 18, 1876

Mr. John Hoover, at present, and for a long time, foreman of the tin manufacturing department of the mammoth triple establishments of Messrs. SH Gregg & Son, on Main Street, though for many years enjoying the reputation of a mechanic par excellence, is with age growing in value to Greggs as a manufacturer, not only of tin, but also of sheet iron and copper ware or work. We called on him a few days since, at 4 o’clock, not to exceed an hour before his quitting time, were cold and eager for an article by which to warm up and thaw out, and ordered the making of a stove drum yet that evening. John promised, though with some reluctance, and we left him.  In one and a half hours thereafter we returned, and on entering the store with fear and trembling, clerk Scott hurriedly answered that our job was done and ready for us. This is what we term, accommodation, and ‘tis to Hoover, the mind reader, the prince of tinners and coppersmiths, we now extend our kindest regards for the efforts put forth on this occasion for the comfort and happiness off “we ‘uns.”
