President Herbert Hoover's original ancestor in this country is buried in Randolph County, where he and many of his family resided. Andreas Huber came to Pennsylvania in 1738, made a career for himself and married. The Hubers later moved to Maryland, but because they were Quakers, they were not popular in the Catholic colony. Around 1772, they came to North Carolina where he was known as Andrew Hoover. He died in 1794, and President Hoover was responsible for the monument that marks his grave--the first member of the family to settle in the state.
