  1. Caleb, thanks for maintaining such a nice website on behalf of my hometown, Dover. It was a joy growing up in such a warm and loving town.

  2. My family was from Dover and I have great memories from visiting there on weekend’s and playing in the woods and the cemetery and going to the Dover Christian Church.

  3. My grandparents Vernie and Ruth (Maycock) Duffey settled in Dover in 1968. Although I was born and raised in Kansas City, I always have and always will think of Dover as my “hometown”. Spending summers and most Sundays in Dover are some of my most treasured memories. My grandparents, my father, my baby sister and many other extended family members are at their final rest in the Dover cemetery, the place I wish to be laid to rest myself when my time comes. Dover will always be home to me.
