1856                Address Unknown, Warrenton, Virginia.

Stover (unknown first name) appeared in one announcement on January 10, 1857 in the Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, Virginia).  We understand that the man Stover, who spent a month or two in town, some time ago, as a Daguerreotypist, and who left Warrenton one morning very suddenly, just before Christmas, to the surprise and annoyance of the landlord of the Farmers’ Hotel, Mr. Smarr, was ordered away from Rappahannock for saying considered a negro better than a white man.  Such fellows should be watched wherever they go.

Stover is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Virginia.
