In Reply to: William Stover - MO/1905 by P Krebs of 2707

Not related.......just a lookup

Per the info from their marr record....he is listed as 'of', Kansas City, Jackson Co, MO & Minnie is of St. Joseph, Buchanan Co, MO. This usually refers to where they are living at the time of the marriage.

Per his WW1 Draft Registration
William Martin Stover
bn 01 Apr 1879
He is working in Kansas City, Missouri
And he & Minnie are living at S. 19th, Kansas City,Kansas
signed: 12 Sept 1918

After spending some time trying to locate him on census records.....he was hard to find. But I believe I may have found him. He is the only 'close match' I found.

William Martin Stover appears to be the same as:
s/o M. M. Stover bn 1841 PA and Kate J. Anderson.
1875 KS, Wyandotte County, State Census
M. M. Stover..34 bn PA......Engineer,
Kate Stover...22 bn IND
Frank Stover....4 bn KS
Estella Stover...2 bn KS
**Kate changes between bn in IND and bn in ILL through out census records** Estella used Stella also.

1880 KS, Wyandotte Co, census
Kate Stover is listed as widowed, daughter & living with her parents. Her father is City Attorney.

Anderson, F. A. 59,
, M. T. 47, wife
, Molly J 21, dau
, Willie F. 18, son
, Edwin G. 14, son
, Harry 8, son
, Richard 5, son
Stover, Kate J 26, dau, widowed
, Frank A. 8, grandson
, Stella M. 6, granddau
, May (cant read) 4, granddau
, Willie M. 1, grandson

by 1900 census Kate has remarried & is widowed again.
1900 KS, Wyandotte County
Stover, Frank bn Sep 1871
, Willie bn Apr 1879, brother
Ray, Kate Dec 1851, mother, widowed
Dec 1883, 1/2 brother
, Carl Apr 1885, 1/2 brother
, Robert Feb 1887, 1/2 Brother
, Aurther Dec 1888, 1/2 brother
, Ida F Apr 1890, 1/2 sister

**Ida also shows up as Florence I.

I find Kate Ray on is 1910 KS, Wyandotte County and her brother Harry Anderson is living with her & her 4 adult children.....Carl, Robert, Arthur & Ida.

1920 MO, Jackson Co, Kansas City
Katherine Ray (mother) is living with her married son Arthur H Ray and single son....Carl, div dau....Ida.

Per WW1 Draft Registrations:
Carl Marion Ray bn 15 Apr 1885
Arther Harold Ray bn 30 Dec 1889

Hope something here will be of help in your search. Looks like Wyandotte County records will hold some good leads for you. Marriage records,OBITS, cemetery records may give you other clues that will help document this family to 'your' William M. Stover.

Good luck
