(NC Deaths and Burials at FamilySearch.org)

14. Occupation: Farmer, had dairy. 1352

15. Story. Served in World War 1 (only one of his siblings to do so). Poor farmer, but grew good watermelons. Had dairy, sold milk. The electrical generator discussed in the article by Charles C Lindley was at one time at Hoover's house. The dairy barn had electricity and running water before the house did. There were lots of band instruments around the house -- Hoover (and maybe Esta) taught music lessons, but they could only read shaped notes. Hoover was a member of the Saxapahaw community band, even after Charles and Percy had left. I have some photos of the band showing Hoover. Hoover frequently hosted ice cream gatherings for the extended family. While still living with his father, Hoover used to take watermelons to Graham to sell using a horse-drawn wagon. Charles would sometimes accompany him. (knowledge of Robert H Lindley)

16. Property: Alamance County, North Carolina, United States. Deed of Trust from Esta and H H Lindley to Central Land and Trust Co, Alamance Co Deed book 107, p88, according to index, but I cannot find it in the deed book.

17. Property: Alamance County, North Carolina, United States. Mortgage Deed from H H and Esta Lindley to John Thompson, Alamance Co Deed book 105, p148, according to index, but I cannot find it in the deed book. Marked "satisfied" in the index.

18. Story. Hoover had a dairy herd of about 20 cows. The dairy barn had hot and cold water before the house did, because the water was needed to get approval to sell milk. He milked by hand at first, and later used a milking machine. The machine was the kind that you carried from cow to cow, collecting the milk in a small container that you emptied into the larger milk can. The milk was sold by weight, probably to Melville Dairy, which was a local common dairy. The dairy barn had a cooler to hold the milk cans, like a freezer half full of water. He did subsistence farming, raising the food needed by his own family. He never had a lot of money, but always had good food. Robert Lindley remembers playing the bins of grain in the granary at Hoover's farm. The bins were about 10 feet by 10 feet, with no tops on them, and the children would climb into the loft over the bins and jump in. The wheat was good to jump in, but the oats were scratchy. (knowledge or Robert H Lindley)

19. Story. At thrashing, Bob would go up in the barn and throw shocks of wheat down to someone with a pitchfork who would feed it into thrashing machine (a touring machine that went from farm to farm). Grain from the thrashing machine was put into bins. The straw at the end of the thrashing machine was baled. Bob remembers playing in stacks of hay bales. The women would prepare a meal for the workers, on a long table outside like a church picnic. This happened in September or October when grain was ripe and dry. Workers came from nearby farms, everybody helped their neighbors, many of which were family (Ed and Myrtle, Lillian, Mott and Bill). Some grain was used to feed the animals, some taken to the mill to be ground into flour (the miller took some of that as payment). (knowledge of Robert H Lindley)

20. Story. When his father died, Hoover inherited the farm and the equipment there. (knowledge of Robert H Lindley)
