Abraham is buried in the Gingrich cemetery outside Annville, along with his wife Barbara. His grave and that of his wife are written in German. I was able to translate them to determine who they were. Barbara was born July 1, 1788 and died March 13, 1868. Abraham was 85 years, 4 mo. 1 day old.

According to adoption records guardianship of Christian was given to Jacob Stauffer of Lurgen Township, Franklin Co., and guardianship of Abraham was given to Barbara Stauffer and her husband Christian Doughterman.
