Now, getting back to the question about who was in Nebraska.

I still haven’t spotted a Delilah. The one you mention is the daughter of….who?

Relying on the above information, the only Stouffer child I see moving to Nebraska was Madison Meredith Stouffer, born 01 JAN 1859 in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, and died 05 DEC 1942 in Litchfield, Sherman, Nebraska.
Madison is said to have married Julia Rebecca Lemmon (1865-1922).
4 known (at this time) CHILDREN:
Robert Alexander Stouffer, Clarence Lucius Stouffer, John Roy Stouffer, William Harvey Stouffer

1920 CENSUS
Custer County, Nebraska
Madison M Stouffer 61 born in Pennsylvania
Julia R Stouffer 54 born in Pennsylvania
Robert A Stouffer 37 born in Pennsylvania
