I am looking into the possibility that Henry Ott (or maybe Utt) and Elizabeth Stover were parents of my Jacob Ott. They were married in 1809, Hagerstown, Washington Co.
Jacob was born Sept 12, 1824, but I do not know any siblings. He is living near an Elizabeth Ott in Boonsboro in 1850 (he is married to Sophia Huntsberry). He is also living next door to an Alfred Stover (perhaps a cousin). Could be related to your Ephraim Stover. However, Jacob belonged to the Church of the Brethren, not the Lutherans. Have you check the Lutheran newsletter records which were published at that time? If you think we may be looking at linked lines, contact me at email@example.com
