Notes

From Davis, pp 150 (PDF pp 154):
On 6 Aug 1765, Daniel Stauffer, (b. 1707. d. 1776) 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.
