Wednesday's Child - James Arthur Hoover

James Arthur Hoover
Fourth child of James Daniel "Jim Dan" and Lucinda (Sparks) Hoover
10 Feb 1914 ~ 1 ??? 1915

Other than James' birth that was recorded in his mother's Bible, this hand-carved stone is the only other record that this child ever existed.  Unfortunately, there is no birth certificate or death certificate.  This photo was taken several years ago.  Presently, the stone still rests on the ground, but has gotten increasingly hard to read.  

James Arthur rests next to his sister, Dimer Ann, and brother Ezerath.  Dimer died young as well, while Ezerath died in his teens of pneumonia while working at a CCC Camp.
