The following is an excerpt from ‘The Biographical Record of Ogle County”, 1899:

Daniel H. Stauffer, one of the progressive farmers of Ogle County, owns and operates a fine farm on section 19, Pine Creek township.  He was born in Stark County, Ohio, February 4, 1853, and is the son of John E. Stauffer and Rebecca (Haight) Stauffer, the former being a native of Pennsylvania, but who is now a resident of Polo, Illinois.  In 1854, John E. Stauffer left Ohio with his family and moved to Elkhart County, Indiana, where they made their home for thirteen years.  Soon after the close of the Civil war, they came to Ogle County, locating on the place which is now the home of our subject.  On that farm the father toiled until 1880, when he rented the place to his son Daniel, and moved to Polo where he has since lived a retired life.  To John E. and Rebecca Stauffer twelve children were born, ten of whom are now living.  John W. is now residing in Glendale, Arizona, where he is engaged in the fruit business.  Sarah E. is the wife of Cyrus Nicodemus, a merchant of Polo.  George W. is a farmer of Pine Creek township.  Christina is the wife of Solomon Solenberger, a retired farmer of Polo.  Mary E. is the wife of Abraham Miller, of Buffalo Township.  Ananias is a farmer of Buffalo Township.  William is a farmer of Pine Creek Township.  Rebecca is the wife of Frank McDowell of Polo.  Anna is making her home with her parents in Polo.

This is the home that Daniel built around 1890 on the property that was his fathers John E. Stauffer. It does not appear that anyone lives there.
