Ms. M.
It was a pleasure to see your response. It has been many years since we corresponded back in the eighties. I under went a difficult time with illness and am only now, now that I am retired, getting back into it. All my information about your Gover connections is twenty years out of date!.
Send me your e-mail and I'll be glad to sent what. I have on the descendants of Daniel Valentine Gover, at least.
As regards Lucy Jane Shadowen I would guess that she died in either Saline or Atchison County Missouri. That is if she followed her eldest son William on his westward Journey.

I am a descendant of Levi Gover and Sarah Copenhaver who went to St. Clair County, Missouri through their son Fountain Gover. I have records for these families. I would like to see corrected records of the Samuel Govers of Taladega County Alabama. Some of the Missouri Govers believe the Samuel Gover, 1750-1860 was their ancestor.

My husband's family is decendents of Samuel Gover and Tabitha Best. Their daughter Keziah Gover married Asbury Edmond Barker, son of John and Lucy Irby Barker. Asbury and Keziah both died young in Wayne County, KY. Asbury's daughter Courtney Barker went to live with her uncle John Fletcher Barker and his wife Catherine Weaver Barker. She married their son James Thomas Barker Nov. 11, 1846 in Wayne County. The house when James Thomas and Courtney Barker lived is still standing in Wayne County, KY. We visit there every year. There are several Barker's living in Somerset, Pulaski County, KY and in Texas that we have found. Several of Courtney and James Thomas Barker's children came to Hunt County, TX in the late 1800's.

I have more information on the Barker's than the Gover's but do have some information on the Gover's.

Hello,
I continue in my quest to find out more about the Barker's. I know that John T. Barker of Washington Co. Ky is my Great-Great grandfather.
I think he is the son of Lucy and John Barker. My Grandfather told me that John Barker came to Ky. from Newport News Va. on horseback in 1790. I have found no proof he is the Father of John T. I find a son Thomas and wonder if this is John T. My Grandfather, was William Thomas .
Anything you have would be a help. I do find John and Lucy and their children in Washington Co.

I found John Walter Gover, son of Daniel Brown Gover and Lucy Jane Shadowen in the Family Data Collection from Ancestry. com. John Walter b. 25 Oct. 1845, Pulaski, KY and d. 26 May 1916 in Hastings, Jefferson, OK. Do you have information that would connect him to my Samuel F. Gover b. 1854 in AL and d. 1937 Stephens, OK?
I think my Samuel F. was the son of Samuel & Isabella Gover, although I haven't definitely established that. On the 1860 Cherokee, TX census, they had Samuel, age 16, that would be the right age for my Samuel F. Samuel F. had a son, Walter Franklin, b. 1874, Samuel Banks, b. 1876, Tolbert, Isaac, Joseph, Claud, and Leonard
I'd be pleased to hear from you. Thanks.
