  • Notes 
    • Levi Stauffer, "the only son of Joseph and Rebecca (Rosenberger) Stauffer, was born September 19th, 1839. He has always been engaged in the avocation of his forefathers, that of agriculture. He is the owner of two beautiful farms, one of which was his father's old homestead and the other is the old 'Beatty' or 'Hechedon' farm. He has been manager of the North Waterloo Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company for upwards of fifteen years, and is one of the most prominent members of the United Brethren Church. He is in sympathy with the Liberal cause of that body. On November 27th, 1859, he was married to Esther, daughter of John and Judith (Bingeman) Snider. They reside on the old homestead about two miles west of the town of Waterloo. To them was born a family of ten children"

      ________________________


      "Levi Stauffer, who was born on a farm near Waterloo, was a farmer all his life. Stauffer was one of the founders of the North Waterloo Farmers Mutual Insurance Co. in 1874, and its first president. The Company started business in rented quarters in the Central Block, 16 King St. S. Waterloo. He became secretary, and later was made Manager, a position to which he was reappointed annually for thirty-three years. The company expanded from Waterloo County and eventually became a Provincial company. In a history, high tribute was paid to Stauffer's leadership, which brought the company to its leading financial position.

      Stauffer was an active member of the United Brethren Church in Kitchener and later of the Methodist Church in Waterloo"
