I can't help you much with the Stouffers, as the only one in my database is Elizabeth Stouffer, who married John S. Stillwagon.
However, I'm fairly certain your Jacob is the brother of my Henry Abraham, who married Frances Stewart (who I believe was the daughter of Abraham Stewart). Henry Abraham Strickler was born 4-24-1763 in Hellam, York, Lancaster Co, PA and married Frances Stewart about 1793. Their children were Jacob D., Elizabeth, Nancy, Frances, Rebecca, John R., and Henry Rice (my ancestor). Henry A. and Frances, as well as Henry Rice and his wife Susanna Slonecker, are buried on the old farm in Upper Tyrone Township, Fayette County, PA (near Connellsville).
Here's what I have on Jacob and his family: (You probably already have most of this)
From Stricklers of Pennsylvania:
He was baptized 3/29/1750 in the Dutch Reformed Church. He settled in Fayette Co. He came to Fayette Co. about 1787 and settled in Tyrone Twp. On 1/13/1789 he received a deed from Jacob Stewart for 394 acres, situated on Jacob's Creek. Here he established his home, built a grist mill and a sawmill. He married Elizabeth Stewart, sister of Jacob Stewart, and they lived on this farm the remainder of their lives. Before his death Jacob divided the farm among his four sons and gave them deeds for same. His Will is registered in Uniontown, Pa. He is enumerated in the first census of 1790 in Tyrone Twp., Fayette Co., Pa. He served in the Revolution in Southampton Company, Capt. John Folwell, Bucks County, Pa. (Penna. Archives, Fifth Series, Vol. 5, p. 309.)

Jacob's daughter Elizabeth, who married Moses Vance:
"A descendant of the MOSES VANCE Family, who retained a copy of their original family bible, states several of the MOSES VANCE descendants were buried in this same cemetery, but no doubt their stones were destroyed when the Railroad constructed their branch, or they could have been moved elsewhere, but the above two stones remain under a group of trees.
