  • Notes  Married:
    • "No known children of Sarah Boone & Jacob Stover," explains Spraker, "Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 Mar 1715, as recorded in Christ Church, Philadelphia. possible that she died quite young, and her descendants, if any, are unknown. While she was the first in the family to settle in in the Oley township, she evidently did not affiliate with the Friends Meeting there, as no data concerning her appears in Quaker records. She was no doubt absorbed by the German element into which she married In 1738 a wife Margaret (Stover) signed a deed for land sold by Jacob to another person, so Margaret was probably a second wife." (Some researchers believe there were children of this marriage, or at least of Stover's second marriage. Proof sources here would be welcomed.)
