Our earliest documented ancestors were found in Staffort-Baden, Germany in 1626. Johann Jakob Stober 1626-1691, married Anna Batzenschlager in 1645. They had at least two sons and Jakob eventually became the Burgermeister of the village.
Valentine Stober and family came to America in 1737 on the ship snow Molly and signed the articles at Philadelphia. The Stober's settled in Pennsylvania and raised their families. Several of our Stober's served in the Revolutionary War. George Stover, a son of John Stober and Barbara Wolf, married Eve Hubler, daughter of Jacob Hubler. Their family consisted of two boys, John and Jacob H. During the epidemics in the early 1800s, both parents died, leaving the boys orphans. The elder son, John died in 1826 at age 20 in a blasting accident, while working on the railroad. Upon reaching adult status, Jacob H. received legacies from John Stober's and Jacob Hubler's estates. At age 21, Jacob H. married Rebecca Hess, the daughter of George Hess, son of Mattias Hess and Eve Stober. In 1840, Jacob H. took his family and removed to Johnson county, Iowa. There they built a home , store and mills and remained for ten years. Jacob was, at times, a supervisor and assisted in the formation of the town of Iowa City.
Jacob and Rebecca's family grew and in 1850, Jacob and his two teenage sons, Reuben and Thaddeus determined to go to California for the gold, and possible relocation. As part of a small party, they traveled overland and had no major catastrophies. Jacob became ill in California and spent a year recovering, after which he decided to return home by ship. Reuben and Thad remained in California and tried their luck in the mines. This was not to their liking so they took what money they had and started in the stock business. Jacob remained in Iowa City until about 1856 according to a State census, then he moved his family to Wisconsin where they lived out their days.
The two boys prospered in California as stockmen, dairymen and ranchers. The Stover ranch at Red Bluff California thrived for over a hundred years, until the passing of Charlie Stover, the last owner, in 1962. End of an era, but not the family.
