In Reply to: Jacob Stauffer and Sara (h) Stork (Stark) by Barbara DiDonato of 942

My 3G-grandfather was Abraham Stauffer and was the brother of Jacob Stauffer married to Sarah Stark. My Abraham was born in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania on April 5, 1813. Two years younger than his brother Jacob, who I believe was also born in Lancaster Co. I have the following children for Jacob and Sarah (Stark) Stauffer:
(1) Mary (Maria) Stauffer, b: July 13, 1833, Pennsylvania; d: July 23, 1913, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio; m: (a) George F. Davidson, Nov. 1, 1866 in Richland Co., Ohio, (b) Chappell after 1870.

(14) Caroline Stauffer, b: Aug 20, 1859, Ohio; d: April 10, 1861, Richland Co.

I do not have much information on the parents of Jacob and Abraham. My great-grandmother listed their birth and death dates, but not their names. Their father was born Sep. 10, 1785 in either Switzerland or Pennsylvania and died March 22, 1856 in Pennsylvania. The mother was born Dec. 21, 1787 in either Switzerland or Pennsylvania and died Nov. 5, 1873 in either Pennsylvania or Ohio. Her name may be Isabella in that a Isabella Stauffer, age 83, was living with Abraham and his wife Susanna in the 1870 US Census for Ottawa Co., Ohio.

Abraham followed his brother to Richland Co., Ohio between 1845 and 1850. He died April 12, 1895 in Ottawa Co., Ohio.

I would be interested in any information you might have on the Stauffer family.
