Thank you for reading this report about the Stouffer family. This has been a work undertaken with many hours, with the energy of a historian`s heart from Messiah College. My name is Colin Riddle and I was a senior at Messiah College, the class of 2011. My major was History and my minor was Spanish. If you could read the paragraph above, you have a great level of Spanish comprehension. (Castilian Spanish comes from the people who live in Spain.) I hope that you enjoy this detailed report and I hope that this can help your investigation about the Stouffer farm and its family. This report should provide you with a good starting point to begin a historical analysis of this interesting family within the local history of York County, Pennsylvania. I wish you good luck with your exploration which can potentially change your mind and view towards Pennsylvanian local history.
