My great great grandfather was George Washington Cover (born 5-2-1846 died 11-10-1924). He came to Friendsville, MD from McKeesport, PA. He married Susan Louise Staup (born 2-22-1854 died 8-31-1921. George and Susan were married 6-30-1872. They had 8 children.
Minnie A. Cover born 8-17-1874 Dillie L. Cover born 3-8-1876 died 10-25-1963 Elsworth W. Cover born 3-17-1878 died 4-6-1880 William Jackson Cover born 9-25-1881 died 4--1931 Alice C. Cover born 8-13-1883 George Washington Cover, Jr born 8-14-1885 died 10-2-1886 Daisy May Cover born 5-21-1894 died 11-3-1955 James Alonzo Cover born 11-25-1897 died 9-27-1980 (This is my great grandfather).
I am searching for information on George and Susan's parents. George's father came from Germany and went by Kobber. His occupation in Germany was building chicken coups.
George was one to be involved in changing the name from Kobber to Cover. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
