Daniel Carey Stover collection
Scope and Contents
There are three pieces of paper in D.C. Stover's handwriting. The first paper is an oath in ink, dated June 14, 1869, attesting to personal knowledge of the signers of a petition. These petitioners, amounting to more than 100, lived in Montgomery County. James George, a Justice of the Peace, signed below Mr. Stover's signature. In the following month, Mr. Stover wrote an application in ink, dated July 3, 1869, petitioning the Board of Commissioners of Montgomery County for money to pay for five and one half miles of intersecting railroad for the Raccoon Valley Railroad Company. The third paper, written in pencil on August 28, 1881, from San Francisco, California, ends a company of which D. C. Stover was secretary and Samuel Purdy was president. The company was located in the Hans Peak Mining district, Grant County, Colorado.
The last item in this collection is a newspaper article from the Ladoga Leader dated July 5, 1934, telling the history of the Daniel Stover family coming from Virginia to Indiana in the early days of the state.
