[edit] Stover Family

Elizabeth Stover comes from the Russell Stover candy family.[9]

[edit] Linn Clan Entry on the Walkers[10]

John Walker, an Ohio farmer, was married to Sarah Burnett, who was three-fourths American Indian. John's three sons: Samuel, James, and Joseph, emigrated to Johnson County, Iowa from Ohio in 1837. Their father followed his sons in 1841. Samuel Walker and his wife, Elizabeth Stover, were members of very respected families which were community leaders in the early pioneer days of Iowa. Their son John S. Walker, married Sarah Woodruff. John and Sarah and their two daughters, Libbie (Hannah Elizabeth) and Hattie, moved to western Iowa and thence to the silver mines of Jefferson City, Montana. Elizabeth Stover Walker, having lost her husband, Samuel, in 1852, accompanied them. Elizabeth died on 29 July 1888 in Jefferson City. The walker family returned to Iowa by wagon, as they had gone. They settled near Shelby, Iowa, where Libbie married Frank B. Linn. The children of Libbie and Frank were 3/64ths American Indian.

  • (Note 1: The above paragraph contains a mistake. "John Walker" should read "James Walker, Sr.")
  • (Note 2: Sarah Burnett's alleged Native American heritage is suspect. See this discussion of the claim.)
