      511. Daniel Stauffer, b. 1707. d. 1776, Shenandoah County (now Page County), Virginia. He
      supposedly married Eva. He arrived in Philadelphia, age 24 with his probable brother Jacob on the
      ship "Pink Plaisance" on 19 Sep 1732. He probably settled first in Warwick Township, Lancaster
      County, Pennsylvania with his brother. By 1743 he moved to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia,
      where he was one of the leaders of the Mennonite congregation by 1758. One source says he was
      married to Eva Albrecht, however there was an Eva Albrecht who was married to John Rhodes, a
      Mennonite minister living at the same place. I'm not sure which man was actually married to Eva.
      Daniel bought 196 acres in Augusta County, Virginia (now Page County) on South River of
      Shenandoah at the mouth of Hawksbill Neck from Peter Ruffner on 11 Apr 1746 for 10 pounds
      current Virginia money. Isaac Strickler was one of the witnesses to the deed in 1746. In 1748,
      Daniel was the administrator of the estate of John Campbell of Augusta County. He was the guardian
      of the Campbell children in 1750 and had been for 6 years. On 19 Feb 1747 he, John Davis,
      Alexander Matthews and George Leath were the witnesses to the administration of Abraham Drake’s
      estate at Augusta County. On 16 Jun 1749 he, Jacob Borner and John Holdeman were the appraisers
      of the goods from the estate of Martin Kaufman in Augusta County. Daniel Stover, Mathias Selzer
      and Jacob Burnett made the inventory of the estate of Rude Mack at Augusta County on 16 Jun 1749.
      He could not write and made his mark “D” on the ship list in 1732 and also later in Virginia ‘DS”.
      On 7 Sep 1758, Daniel Stauffer, Martin Kaufmann, Jacob Borner, Samuel Bohm and others of the
      Virginia Mennonite congregation wrote to the Mennonites in Holland asking for assistance from the
      Indians. The letter was written one mile from Lancaster Town, Pennsylvania. He was taxed at
      Frederick County, Virginia in 1759 and 1764. He was granted 200 acres in Frederick County adjacent
      to the land of John Bumgartner on3 Jul 1761. On 25 Jul 1761, Daniel was of Frederick County,
      Virginia when he bought 408 acres adjoining the lands of William Calfee in Frederick County from
      Charles and Elizabeth Reagan. The witnesses to the deed were James Jones and George Leith. On
      6 Aug 1765, he was of Frederick County, Virginia when he bought 385 acres on Pass Run in
      Frederick County from John and Mary Wood of Frederick County. The witnesses to the deed were
      John Hite, Jacob Vertree and Fergus Cron. Daniel was taxed at Dunmore County (later became
      Shenandoah) in 1774, 1775 and 1776. On 26 Aug 1776, his son Samuel Stover and Samuel’s wife
      Barbara sold 330 acres to John Lionberger and the deed stated that the land was first granted to John
      Wood on 1 Jan 1753 and that John Wood later sold it to Daniel Stover, now deceased. On 26 Aug
      1776 Samuel and his wife sold additional land totaling 385 acres on Pass Run to John Lionberger and
      the deed stated that it was land original granted to John Wood on 17 Nov 1752 and Wood conveyed
      the land to Daniel Stover, now deceased and Daniel conveyed it to his son Samuel. Daniel apparently
      bought at least four tracts of land over his lifetime, 196 acres, 408 acres, 385 acres and 330 acres
      totaling 1319 acres. His son Samuel had two tracts of 330 acres and 385 acres which he sold in 1776
      to John Lionberger. The Stauffers who went to Virginia, on the most part had their name anglicized
      to Stover.
