Jacob Stover and Sarah I. Boone
Notes for JACOB STOVER:
We find that in 1714 Jacob Stauber was granted land, on Oley Creek, Philadelphia (now Berks County) . It is thought that Jacob moved to Virginia after his wife's death, for we find in Virginia record of one Jacob Stover's sale of land in Augusta County (now Rockingham County), to George Boone of Oley; one tract of 500 acres and another of 1000 acres described as near the end of North Mountain, on a small branch of the Shenandoah, part of 5060 acres laid out for Stover by the Council of Virginia July 1730. In 1738 a wife Margaret Stover signed a deed for land sold by Jacob to another person. Margaret was probably a second wife.

Medical Information: buried Augusta Stone Church NR Staunton Augusta Co. Virginia
Notes for SARAH I. BOONE:
Sarah did not affiliate with the Quakers. It is possible that she died quite young. According to records it is thought Jacob married again and moved to Virginia.
