      52. Daniel Stauffer, b. c1685. d. 1751, Alsheim, Hesse, Germany. In 1727 his brother Christian
      returned from Mannheim and paid him money, apparently to take over the lease for the
      Mückenhäuserhof. Daniel probably then moved to nearby Alsheim that same year. In 1729 the two
      tenants at Mückenhäuserhof were Daniel's brother Christian Stauffer and his step-brother Johann
      Jacob Brubacher. In the court records of Alsheim Daniel Stauffer is found on a list of persons dated
      5 Dec 1730. On 7 Apr 1733 he bought 2 pieces of land for cultivation in Alsheim at a local auction.
      On 14 Jul 1733 in a tax matter he is mentioned as "Daniel Stauffer from Stiftneyhausen", which
      probably refers to Stift Neuhausen who might have owned properties at Alsheim, cultivated by Daniel
      Stauffer and not meaning that Daniel Stauffer lived at Neuhausen. On 18 May 1734 at the cattle
      market at Guntersblum he was called Daniel Stauffer of Alsheim when he made a transaction. He
      was also mentioned as "of Alsheim" at the Guntersblum cattle market on 29 Oct 1737. In 1738 there
      were three different Mennonite census reports made. On the first list he was listed but no statistics
      were given on the families. On the second Mennonite census in 1738 there where a total of 3 men,
      4 women and 9 children, but no names given. On the third list (Bender's list) it shows that Daniel
      Stauffer had a wife and four children in 1738. On 6 Oct 1739 there was a letter written by Daniel
      Stauffer to the bailiff at Alzey. He wrote "I am the temporary leaseholder of the Ducal-Lorrainese
      superior bailiff Herr von Langen at Alsheim...in my responsibility there are several goods that are
      owned by the orphans that are placed under my care as a guardian..". In the letter he complains that
      he had to pay Turk tax and poll tax twice, though temporary leaseholders usually were exempted.
      No other names or family dates are given in the letter. In the 1743 Mennonite census report for
      Alsheim, Daniel was listed as a widower with one son and two daughters. Sometime between 1743
      and 1751 he married again. In inheritance matters of the court of Alsheim from 1734-1773, there
      were letters written by the district office of Alzey sent to the village authorities of Alsheim
      concerning the "Obsignierung" of Daniel Stauffer. The first was very short, dated 13 Oct 1751 and
      contains the sentence "regarding the deceased Mennonite Stauffer, leaseholder of von Lang". The
      second letter is dated 2 Nov 1751 and only contains the information that Daniel Stauffer was the
      leaseholder of Freiherr von Lang at Alsheim. In the 1753 Mennonite census report it shows that his
      widow was listed at Alsheim with two children. His son Daniel Stauffer (c1728-1785) was called
      "of Alsheim" when he bought Abraham Brubacher's widow's farm at Ibersheim in 1754. Another
      probable son was Christian Stauffer (c1711-1759) who was listed next to him on the first 1738 census
      report and who was not listed on the other two lists for that same year. Christian appears on the
      second 1738 list at Rohrbach near Heidelberg and emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1744. Christian had
      a brothers named Hans who also emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1744. The Jacob Stauffer who
      emigrated in 1732 was probably his son and Martin Stauffer who emigrated in 1742 was probably
      also a son of Daniel. Daniel had at lease two daughters, but their names are not known.
