     Jacob Stover was born on 13 May 1757.1 He was the son of Heinrich Stauffer and Elisabeth Hackman. At the breaking out of the Revolutionary War of 1775 the Colonial Army, being pressed for teams and transportation equipments, demanded of Henry Stover, Sr, his wagon and
horses for the use of the army. His son Jacob, then a mere lad, accompanied his father's team in the army as driver under the command of General Sullivan and hauled the army stores and sometimes the wounded soldiers. Harsh treatment, the severity of his duties and the failure to return him and his father's team to his home, as was promised his father, so disheartened the young lad that upon one occasion he determined to escape, but was not successful. He was then placed under General Washington's command, to whom he made complaint of his former cruel treatment and of receiving food not fit to eat. The General afterward promoted him, and from that time on he hauled only General Washington's personal effects.1
Jacob Stover married Elizabeth Swartz. Jacob Stover married Catharine Stauffer, daughter of Mathias Stauffer and Anna Clemens. Jacob Stover died on 28 April 1844 at age 86 years, 11 months and 15 days.1
