Son of Solomon Hendrix Stover and Mary Elizabeth Nave; born in 1846 in Carter County, TN. Married Martha Jane Hart, fathered five known children. Isaac Stover died 9 Mar 1878 in Carter County, TN.

I am not related to Isaac Stover, but I recenly located the his family cemetery in Carter County, TN. He is buried next to his wife and father. The cemetery is located behind a Sunoco gas station in the Hunter Community of Carter County. The cemetery is in danger, Isaac & his father's are the only remaining headstones, the rest have been broken or destroyed. I am trying to contact a direct descendant of Isaac Stover to replace his headstone and protect the cemetery.
