Stover History
Regarding Nimrod Stover (1803-1880) and Jacob Stover (1809-1875)
Update May 22, 2021

The true identity of the parents of Nimrod and Jacob Stover was in question for some time.  After I found the below McNabbs document listing Nimrod and Jacob as the sons of Jacob and Dorothy (Neff) Stover, I had mostly accepted that their parents were Jacob Stover (1753-1816) and Dorothy Neff (1777-1816).



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


So then I was conflicted about the parent connection because Jacob Stover's 1816 will made NO MENTION of either Nimrod or Jacob.


No explanation was found for this until 2021. Stover researcher Thomas Lehman found and showed me the below information.

The Christian Stover referred below is Christian Stover, Junior (1774-1815), who is the son of Christian Stover, Senior (abt1750-1818), who is the BROTHER of the previous Jacob Stover (1753-1816) I thought before to be their father. So not only are Nimrod and Jacob brothers, they also had two sisters, Lydia and Fanny Stover. All were evidently orphaned when their father died.
Based on this new information, I can now conclude that brothers Nimrod and Jacob Stover are the sons of Christian Stover, Junior (1774-1815).

This is a transcript of an 1815 Shenandoah County Minute Order.
