Stover History
McNabb Document
Update April 30, 2021


The original source for this document is found at:  http://www.mcnabbs.org/~nancy/
Barbara Jean Barbre Evans, who was an avid genealogist, researched information for a number of family lines. Nancy McNabb published her mother's work in this website to make it available to others who might find it useful.

I have also created a 12 page PDF (0.7 mb) of this document, which may be viewed or downloaded if needed: http://www.bartonancestry.com/pdf/Stover_Gen_McNabbdoc.pdf


I had originally concluded that the information in this document represented the best evidence to date that Nimrod Stover (1803-1880) and Jacob Stover (1809-1875) were the sons of Jacob (1753-1816) and Dorothy (Neff) Stover. As you can see above, this document clearly suggests they are sons of this couple. The author of this document undoubtedly had a reason for listing Nimrod and Jacob as appearing to me sons of Jacob and Dorothy. Parts of this document suggest the information originated from old family records, such as family bibles.

Further evidence surfaced in 2020 within the hand-written Creamer-Stover-Watt document shown on another page.  This document reinforced the information that Jacob and Nimrod were brothers in clearly stating, "Jacob had one Brother named Nimrod."

NEW INFORMATION 2021
The confounding problem was the absence of Nimrod and Jacob's names in Jacob Stover's 1816 will. No explanation was found for this until 2021. Based on this newly discovered information (not really hidden), I can now conclude that brothers Nimrod and Jacob Stover are the sons of Christian Stover, Junior (1774-1815).  You may see that information is THIS PAGE.

STOVER

The Stover family originated either in Germany or Switzerland where variations of the name include Staufer, Stouffer, Stoever, Staver, Stover, Stoeffer and Stiver. These families began migrating to America in the 1700s, most landing in either Virginia or Pennsylvania. Later these families migrated mainly to Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Jacob Stover
On June 17, 1730, Jacob Stover a native of Switzerland, was granted leave by the colonial council to take up 10,000 acres of land on the south fork of the Shenandoah, for the settlement of himself and divers (an undetermined number, but more than one) Germans and Swiss whom he proposed to bring thither within the next two years, the said land to be laid off in such tracts as he should judge fitting...the names of eight petitioners of 1732, who had bought land in Massanutten of Jacob Stover in 1729 or 1730, were as follows: Adam Miller, Abram Strickler, Mathias Selzer, Philip Long, Michael Rhinehart, Hans Rood, Michael Kaufman. The family names of all these men, with perhaps one or two exceptions, are today familiar and widely distributed, not only in the counties of Rockingham, Page and Shenandoah, but also in many quarters beyond the limits of Virginia.  History of Rockingham County, Virginia, Wayland, 1912.

In 1733 Jacob Stover (grant described as being in Spottsylvania County, St. Mark's Parish) an enterprising German, obtained from the then Governor of Virginia, a grant for 5,000 acres of land on the South Fork of the Gerando; River, on what was called Mesinetto Creek.
