Daughter of William HOVIOUS and Sarah HARDING. Born in Adair Co. in 1809 (?). Married Aaron Henry COOLEY on 25 July 1826. [Aaron H. Cooley b. 5 May 1802 in Adair Co. KY, d. 9/1845 (?) in Adair Co.KY.] Susannah is mentioned in her maternal grandfather Stephen Harding's will, dated 25 February 1815. There is some discussion on when & where Aaron
and Susannah died but I believe it was in Adair Co. because their estate
was settled there in October 1845.
