Anson E. Laufer has Adam's birth in 1790.
Adam's residence was Monroe Co., near Broadheadsville, PA, after he moved from Northampton Co. Adam Laufer' history was presented by Nathan Laufer of Broadheadsville in 1904. Adam Laufer had six sons and two daughters; Thirty-six grandchildren; 94 great grand children; 64 great - great grandchildren.
Adam Laufer was a tailor by occupation; he also worked a small farm while living near Petersville, Northampton Co., Pa. In the year 1828 he removed into Monroe Co., and purchased a tract of timber land in the west end of the county, near Pleasant Valley Post Office. While he worked at his trade, his sons did some farming and lumbering; they used up a good deal of the lumber in making flour and whiskey barrels, which were much in demand, at that time. Some years later, he and three of his sons Joseph, Samuel and Charles bought some timber land above the Pocono Mountains, where they operated a saw-mill for some years. After selling this property, he and the younger sons-Peter, Henry and Jonas-ran the farm, he working at his trade until the death of his wife. About this time he sold the home-stead to Dr. Heubner, and then made his home with Joseph, his eldest son, until the time of his death. There is a conflict with the fact on living out his life with his son Joseph. The 1860 census in Jo Daviess, IL shows Joseph living there but Adam's death is shown as 1860 in Monroe Co., PA.
Adam married Elizabeth Koehler. (Elizabeth Koehler was born in 1808 in Pennsylvania and died in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.)
