Popular with the players, Stovall became Cleveland manager 17 games into the 1911 season, but was sold in January to the Browns, managing them from June 1912 until late in 1913.
Stovall was the first star to join the Federal League, and convinced others to follow.
His brother, pitcher Jesse Stovall, compiled an 8-14 record with the Indians and Tigers in 1903 and 1904.
George Stovall (727 words)
That same year, he was appointed overseer of a road from his house to the county line, and this appointment was renewed later for a road from his house to the courthouse.
The latter, as a very young child, had been taken to live with her grandparents, George and Elizabeth Stovall, in Bedford County on the fringes of the Virginia settlements, because her mother (Martha Stovall Smith) had died.
George's will, dated 18 April 1786, was proved 7 December of that year and lists only the children of his second wife.
