    Notes 
    • Walter was interested in raising horses, and visited relatives in England as a young man (it is believed that the relatives that he visited werePardos). He raised Clydesdales and Pacers, and traveled around the Country with his thoroughbred Stud Clydesdales. He inherited the family farm,130 Acres with a farm house, several barns, and a tall windmill with a large watering tank. Most of the farm was kept in hay as feed for thehorses. Hired help lived in the house for quite a few years.

      Agnes Moore and James walter Stover started off their marriage very much in love and quite well off. The farm by the lake was usually planted inwheat and cash crops such as potatoes, tobacco, and beans. There were many fruit trees, apples, Pears, Plums,Peaches, Cherries, Berries, etc.They rented a stall on Market street in Chatham, Ontario, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays they took produce to market. James purchased a Democrat,(a two seated wagon on heavy springs) It was great for carrying fruit without bruising the product. A team of horses pulled it and it took abouttwo hours each was to travel the 16 miles to and from Chatham.

      James Walter Stover died on December 31, 1935 at the age of 75; Agnes Moore Stover died April 3, 1957 at the age of 90
