Notes for Anna Elizabetha Catherine Stoever
Our earliest known ancestor was Dietrich STůVER and wife Magdalena EBERWEIN of Frankenberg, Germany. Their son, John Kasper STůVER, (I), left Germany with his son, Johann Casper STůVER, (II), and daughter, Anna Elisabetha Catherina STůVER in the spring of 1728. They arrived in Philadelphia on September 11, 1728 aboard the ship James Goodwill.
The spelling of the family name changed to STOEVER shortly after arriving in America. Both father and son were well known Lutheran Ministers in the Pennsylvania and Virginia areas. The younger STOEVER was the first German Lutheran Minister ordained in the US.
