J Sorver

 (19/20th century)
J. D. Sorver was active/lived in Pennsylvania.  J Sorver is known for barnyard fowl paintings.

Biography   J. Sorver


Very little is known about J. D. Sorver. He exhibited the painting, a Group of Chickens, at the annual exhibition of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1888, where he listed his address as 147 North 5th Street in Philadelphia.1

He was probably the Joseph D. Sorver who was listed in the 1901 Haddonfield city directory as living on 24 East Main Street (now East Kings Highway).

Sorver was related to the prominent cigar manufacturer Robert D. Sorver, also a resident of Haddonfield. J. D. Sorver evidently left the area; he is not buried in the family plot at the cemetery of the First Baptist Church of Haddonfield.
