John was the son of Johann Daniel Kober and wife Maria Eva Eberhard/Everhart. He was the third son of their total of eight children. He married first Catherine Flugle/Fleagle (oomlots over the u) the daughter of Johann Valentin Flugle, one of the Pheiff (Pipe) Creek Hundred out of Germany, some of the earliest settlers in this area of Maryland. She was also born in 1756 and died in 1809. He later married Catherine McCumsey in 1815, a mother in law to one of his daughters who was herself a widow. They got married in the Lutheran Church at Littlestown, Adams County, Pennsylvania, just north of what is now Westminster, Maryland. When John's parents settled in Maryland there was no town yet of Westminster but was laid out in 1765 by a Colonel Winchester. John bought up small plots of land around him and lived on adjoining property next to his mother and fathers land off now Hwy M-97 and on the same branch of the Patabsco River. He called his land and farms 'Covers Adventure'. He had two sons, Benjamin and Daniel who both farmed for him, and six daughters. Benjamin moved with his wife Eve Hahn Cover and children to the new Eastern Ohio Territory in 1817 and bought land in what is now Mahoning County and was then Columbiana County. Eve's father Andrew Hahn and a few of her brothers were already there in Ohio. Daniel stayed in Westminster where he died in 1836. After his death his wife Susannah Rudisill Cover moved with her children to Jonesboro, Union County, Illinois where one of her sisters had moved to earlier.
