I am looking for info on my grandparents, parents etc.

My grandmother was Esther Degroat Hover, born 1881 in Paupack PA.  Daughter of William Degroat and Adelia Thompson Degroat.  William was originaly from  Bergen NJ.  He was from a large family, being classified as mulatto until he moved to PA.

My grandfather was Joseph W. Hover, born 1878 in Newfoundland PA.  Son of Alexander Peter Hover & Polly Jane Corey Hover.  Alexander was the son of Abraham Hover & Polly Jane was the daughter of John Corey.

The 1900 census has grandma, grandpa, their son Reginald & 2 fathers living in Paupack.  They were married in November of 1899.  Reg was born in April 1900.

Their children were:

Joseph Victor - he went as Victor
Esther Madeline - she went as Madeline

My mother Florence Hover Borker was born at what is now the bottom of Walenpaupack Lake.  The family lived in Honesdale, Hawley, Greentown & several other towns as grandpa pursued work.  They often lived in company houses.  

In the 1920's the family moved to Sidney, NY.

Any info on the Hovers, Degroats, Thompsons or Coreys would be greatly appreciated.
