In a disagreement over the treatment of an orphan girl in 1845 the two ministers at Groffdale, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Jacob Stauffer and Jacob Weber, led a small schism, with Jacob Brubaker of Juniata County as their bishop. They were granted a small meetinghouse near Hinkletown and built one in Snyder County on Port Trevorton Route 2. They are today called the Weaver Mennonites. There were in 1955 60 mem­bers, with Weaver Zimmerman as bishop and Martin S. Weaver and Peter L. Weaver as ministers. The Stauffer Mennonites, 218 in all, are in two con­gregations, with Jacob S. Stauffer as bishop and Joseph O. Brubaker as minister at the Pike church, worshiping in the same house as the Weaver group, and at Loveville, Maryland, Harry Stauffer and John M. Brubaker, ministers. There were a few other small schismatic groups in Snyder County in the late 1950s.
