William is the twelfth child of a family of fourteen children, and was reared in his native county. He was reared in the occupation of farming, and followed that occupation until 1866, when he located in Effingham, Illinois, there residing about two year. He then came to Guthrie Center, and held a position as clerk with Motz & Co. until becoming a member of the firm in March, 1874.

One of the oldest homes in Guthrie Center is the old Victorian mansion known as the Stover house. This house was built in 1882 by William McLuen for his daughter, Alice, and her husband, William Stover. The Stover house is on land originally owned in 1875 by Frank M. Howe. This 40 acre tract was sold in 1877 to Sam Dale, dividing it into smaller tracts and one of these being sold to William Stover in 1881.
