Civil War service - Co. B. 127 Pa Vol Inf

Married Emily Bancock Septemeber 26 1866.

Taken from an obituary of his wife on March 1917 Peoria Star:
"He was one of this city's most earnest and successful ministers, indefatigable in his work. In Peoria at various times he officiated in the pulpits of twenty two churches and served in many pastorates in his labors, which extended all throughout central Illinois".

The son of John & Sarah (Markley) Stouffer, in 1860 he was a painter living with his parents in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Harrisburg August 7, 1862, mustered into federal service there August 8 as a private with Co. B, 127th Pennsylvania Infantry, promoted to corporal October 13, and honorably discharged with his company May 29, 1863. He is on the company register as "Stoufer." The 127th fought in the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville during their nine-month enlistment.

He married Illinois-born Jennie Elizabeth Babcock September 26, 1866, but they apparently remained childless. In 1880, he was a minister living in Atkinson, Henry County, Illinois, and by 1900 resided in Peoria County.
