Tombstone Tuesday – March 6, 2017 – Olive Marie Hoover Hainer

Olive Hoover Hainer

Olive Marie was born on January 6, 1883,  she was the daughter of Samuel B Hoover and Elizabeth Hester. She was born in Pickering, Ontario. Samuel and Elizabeth had two daughters; Olive Marie (1883) and Alina P. In the 1891 Canadian Census, Samuel and Elizabeth (Libbie) are found living in Pickering, Ontario. In the 1901 Canadian Census, Samuel and Libbie live in Village of Stouffville.  The daughters, Olive and Alina are eighteen and sixteen years old.

Olive Marie married Fredrick Lee Hainer on July 25, 1905, in York, Ontario. Fred and Olive left Ontario to live in East Providence, Rhode Island where he was a minister of a church.  In the 1910 Federal census, they are in East Providence, Rhode Island where they live and now have a one-year-old daughter whose name is Gwendolyn and she was born in 1909. Fred’s occupation was listed as a clergyman. In this census, they are both listed as Legal Aliens who arrived in 1905. In the 1920 Census, Fred and Olive are found in Groton, New York. Fred is a Baptist Minister. They have become naturalized Citizens in 1917 according to this census record. A Naturalization record was located for Fred but I was not able to find one for Olive in spite of the Census record indicating that one should exist.

In a Rhode Island State Census in 1925, the Hainer’s are living in Providence, Rhode Island. Their daughter is now sixteen years old. Fred is still a minister and Olive is not employed. In the 1930 Census, they live in Providence, Rhode Island. Their daughter remains with them. In the 1940 Federal Census, the Hainer’s now live in Kearny, Hudson County, New Jersey where he is a minister. Eventually, Fred and Olive retired to Naples, Florida.

Forty-three years ago today, on March 6, 1975, Olive Marie Hainer died in Naples, Florida. She is buried in Naples Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Mausoleum B.


Rest in Peace, Olive Marie!

Love, Jan

Olive is the wife of my 2nd cousin 3X removed, Frederick Lee Hainer.
