      Milton R. Kauffman measured 5 ft., 8 in. tall, he had brown hair, gray eyes, average weight, clear complexion, high forehead, and strong will. Education was meager, but he was mechanically bent. He constructed his own threshing machine and grist mill. He fixed clocks, did his own blacksmithing, butchering, and he repaired machinery and improved a run-down farm on which he lived in Dover Twp., York Co., Pa., to be the best in fertility in the Twp. He considered it the duty of his generation to plant and conserve trees for the coming generation. Because he tried to avoid destroying a sapling in the family woodland several miles from home, he had the misfortune of having the ax blade deflected, causing a gash to be cut through the boot into the bone. Here he showed fortitude in having his two helpers fix him in the buggy to drive home three miles distant where with needle and thread he sewed up the three-inch gash himself. He was very outspoken in opinion regardless of consequences which made many enemies. Death came after several weeks illness from regurgitation of the heart.

      Anna Fahs Kauffman measured about 5 ft. ; she had brown hair which turned white early ; her eyes were gray ; ears, large ; complexion, clear; she was even-tempered, not talkative, but industrious and educated.
