      512. Christian Stauffer, b. 1709. d. 1747, Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
      From a bible record found in Kansas City, Missouri the following was written on the first page "Year
      1730, 10th of November have I, Christian Stauffer, from Mückenhäusen married afterwards at home
      unto the Vet. Christian Kintzi daughter by name Barbara Kintzin who was born in the year 1705 God
      our Lord give us grace and blessing that we live according to his will".20 It appears that Christian was
      married at "home" which was at Mückenhäuserhof. His wife's father, Christian Kuntzi lived at
      nearby Alsheim. By 1732 he moved to Alsheim, perhaps taking over the farm of his father-in-law
      who apparently died about that time. In the purchase records of Alsheim on 31 Jan 1732 Christian
      Stauffer purchased from Philipp Lösch of Dorndürkheim a piece of farmland. On 7 Apr 1733 he was
      called Christel Stauffer when he bought 6 pieces of land for cultivation at the local auction at
      Alsheim. On 6 May 1733 Christian Stauffer was appointed the local mayor of Alsheim with Peter
      Balzhäuser for a period of one year. Apparently Christian never served as mayor as he transferred
      the office to Johann Georg Jost. On 21 Oct 1735 Christian Stauffer in the court records of Alsheim
      made a charge against Heinrich Rüster for money the latter did no pay. He arrived in Philadelphia
      on 24 Sep 1737, age 28 on the ship "Virtuous Grace" with his younger brother Johannes Stauffer, age
      20. He requested to take up 20 acres adjoining George Cough in Warwick Township, Lancaster
      County, Pennsylvania on 25 Mar 1738 but it was never patented. He apparently died before he
      patented the land. He was living next to Christian Bomberger in Warwick Township in 1742
      according to a deed. On 30 Jan 1742 he signed Christian Bomberger’s will as a witness. The
      signature matches his signature on the 1737 ship list. On 18 Dec 1747 the bond for Christian
      Stouffer, deceased was issued with the administration papers issued to Barbara Stouffer (his widow),
      Jacob Stouffer Sr. (his probable brother), and John Stouffer (his probable brother). The bondsmen
      were in addition to the previously named were, Jacob Stouffer Jr. (his probable cousin and younger
      than his brother Jacob), John Brubaker Jr., and Abraham Meyer. On 2 Jun 1767 in the orphan court
      records at Lancaster he was called Christian Stauffer formerly of Warwick township, deceased when
      Jacob Erb was chosen to be the guardian of his son Jacob who was a minor child over the age of 14
      years. The entry in the orphan court was made at the same time that his brother John’s daughter
      Catherine was assigned a guardian. Apparently his brother John, (who was one of his administrators)
      was the guardian of his son Jacob until his death in 1767. On 7 Jun 1769, Jacob Stauffer his
      surviving administrator came to the orphan court with 251 pounds 18 shillings 3 pence in hand,
      which was the balance of the Christian’s estate. The estate money was distributed in 3 equal shares.
      83.15.5 to the Barbara, “widow of the deceased” 83.15.5 to the “eldest son” John and 83.15.5 to
      Jacob “another son”. Apparently his estate was not settled until his youngest son Jacob came of age
      in either 1768 or 1769. Christian probably had other children who died without issue by 1769.
