Roger, I am a descentant of Christian and Sarah Stover. In fact the are my great,great,great,great grandparents. In my records I show that Christian was born in 1750, Strasburg,Shenandoah, Virginia and died in 1816 in Virginia, he married Sarah Lymbaugh, Lymebok in 1774 in Pennsyvlania. Sarah was born in 1750 and died in 1850.
In my record I have another Christian (Stauffer) Stover, born in 1579 in Bern, Engwill, Switzerland and died in 1671. He was married to Adelheid Oppliger.
I know that orginial name of the Stover's was Stauffer when they came to the United States and when they settled in Pennsyvlania they were asked to change the last name to Stover for policial reasons.
I have traced the Stover or Stauffer family back to 1500's' If you have any other questions you can email me at email@example.com.
