Connections

A forum for the exchange of information on the Shaffer Heritage Shaffer Connections is published semi- annually as a non-profit family association newsletter. To be included on the mailing list send a check for $7.50, January 1, 2000 the price rises to $10.00. Dr. Jim Brown, editor; Frances Shaffer Canfield, Betty A. Shaffer Brown, advisors. Publishing address is at: Shaffer Connections, 15405 W. Elmore East Rd., Elmore, Ohio 43416. Free queries are invited as well as unsolicited manuscripts and historical information relating to the Shaffer family. The preferred method of submission is by sending an MS Word DOC, an RTF, or a TXT file via Email or by floppy disk. It is also acceptable to submit information on paper.

As with all genealogists we are looking for someone or something. In the case of the
Shaffer Connections we are researchers to one degree or another looking for other Shaffers, be it ancestors, cousins, or someone else. It is the hope of Shaffer Connections to be that connection you need to find the Shaffers you are looking for in your genealogical research. This periodical is like a vehicle to get you where you want to go with your Shaffer studies, thus the train conductor in the upper left, to help you make your connection.

Continuing highlights of this issue include queries and postings gleaned from Email and the internet. Hours and hours have been spent reading through many queries in search of Shaffers. Those that have been found in the past several months are listed inside. We realize that not all of our readers have Email yet and that some of the query writers only gave their Email address. In cases where you think you might actually have a connection with the writer and you have no other recourse to reach them through your own or a friends Email account you may write back to "Shaffer Connections" and one of the editors will be happy to assist you in making your connection.

Herman W. Witthoft, Sr.
Herman, married to Doris DeVane, is in his 70s now with five children. Herman’s Shafer connection comes through his mother’s side of the family, Florence Zula Shafer, the daughter of Wellington Shafer. He became interested in computers and genealogy at the same time in early 1990, the year of his retirement after 31 years employed by the State of New York. His mother was an avid genealogist for over 60 years. With what she passed along to Herman plus what he gathered on his own he now has a GEDCOM of over 58,000 people.
Herman specializes in three separate lines of the Schaeffers of Schoharie Co. and Delaware Co., New York. These three lines are descended from [1] Maria Elizabeth Schaefferin (1665-1749); [2] George Shaver and Jane Mulford, Town of Fulton, Schoharie Co., NY; and [3] descendants of Jost Hendrick Schaeffer, Shavertown, Town of Andes, Delaware Co., NY. To date they remain separate lines with no connections by marriage or blood.
On line [1] Herman has over 6439 descendants and counting spouses over 9615.
On line [2] Herman has over 768 descendants and counting spouses over 1145.
On line [3] Herman has over 1048 descendants and counting spouses over 1515.
Of course it takes a lot of leg work not to mention finger work and eye work to compile so many names but Herman does mention several books that have been helpful. They include:
Brinkman, William A., Bible and Family Records by Wm. Brinkman Historian Town of Guilderland, NY, 1943.
Jacobson, Alice H., Beneath Pepacton Waters, Beginning of Shavertown.

***The Shaffer Family Website***
*Shaffer Family History*
 
The Shaffer family first started with three brothers and their families immigrating from Germany in June 1710. Their names were Johann nicolaus schaeffer, his wife Maria catharina suder; their daughter Anna margaretha, and five sons, michael, caspar, peter, nicolaus and Jacob.
The other two families were Johann Michael and his wife Anna Christina schehrer, and johann friederich and his wife Anna rosina. Discouraged, and dissatisfied with their treatment after their arrival, the families left in the late fall of 1712 for schoharie valley, some 60 miles from Livingston manor, NY., Where they remained there for 10 years.
Early in 1723, the 3 families left schoharie and settled tulpehocken, in southeastern Pennsylvania. Johann nicolaus schaeffer and his family were the earliest settlers to tulpehocken. His brother johann friederich also settled the same area. Johann nicolaus' son, johann nicolaus jr., Who!was born Jan. 21, 17o6 in relsberg, Germany had a son named Johannes.
Johannes was born in tulpehocken in 1728. Johannes was raised near rehersburg in berks county, and later, he met and married Maria Eva Saab in 1749. Their first son, johan Nicholas was born on new years day in 1750, in berks county.
Two years later on October 31, 1752, my great, great, great, great grandfather john Adam Schaffer was born. Johannes and his family, wife Eva, five sons and three daughters moved northwest to Mahanoy Township in Northumberland County. In April 1775, when the colonies started getting mad at king George iii in England, and declared
Their independence, the two oldest Shaffer boys went off to fight for liberty and freedom. John Adam was a lieutenant and his brother Nicholas was a private in a company called "the associators." They both fought in the battles of Trenton and Princeton during the cold winter of 1776-1777. Their enlistment commitment ended in 1779 and john Adam mustered out at York County he married a York county girl named Elizabeth Klinefelder. After eleven children, (6 boys and 5 girls) john Adam and Elizabeth moved their family to centre county in 1801. Nicholas and his wife Juliana brosius had moved to that area nine years earlier and produced 14 kids in 22 years. John Adam was the patriarch of his day, lived to be 87 years old when he passed away in madisonburg, in 1840. His wife Elizabeth died 5 years earlier and his brother Nicholas died in 1825. All are buried in the Lutheran and reformed church cemetery in madisonburg.

I'm looking for info on the Shaffers from PA Hi! My name is Don Shaffer, I'm looking for info on the SHAFFER family that lived or lives in or around Cameron County, PA.
 
My Grandad said "I was borned on Christmas day 1871, in Cameron, Cameron County, PA." That's what we want to find out. We would like to know a little about his family. His Name was Joseph (James)Melvin Shaffer. He always said his name was Joseph, BUT, his headstone in Crosby, PA says James. So which was it Joseph or James? He also said "his mother died while giving him birth." He had a sister named Jennie or Jane E., she traveled with his father; who was a woodmans, traveling camp to camp. Jennie (Jane E.) married a man named Fauver and moved somewhere in or around Buffalo, NY. My Grandad was raised by various families in and around Cameron County. Around the turn of the Century he married Eunice Deliah Rosier. (we believe they were married in Portville, NY) They had several children :
Antoinette
James
Ethel
Floyd
Lewis (this is my dad)
Robert
John
Twins Doris & Donald.
They lived in and around Cameron County, and Crosby town. Around 1916-19 they migrated to NYS, settled in Caton, NY then moved to Corning, NY. The rest we know. My uncle Don is the last living child, he is 76 years old, and would like to find out a little about his parents and where they came from, before he passes on. Any info we receive, would make a old man very happy. Thanks
Uncle Don passed away on June 6th 1998. I will still be looking for any information I can find, on the Shaffers.

First I want to thank all of you who have replied to my query concerning the Johannes Schaeffers who settled in Schoharie County, New York. I have replied individually to all of you, but would like to inform you of my current quest.
 
It seems that there were at least 5 different Johannes Schaeffers who settled in Schoharie in the early 18th century. In order to create a more accurate genealogy for all of us, I have decided to undertake the very difficult task of sorting through all of the information available to identify these and any other Johannes Schaeffers who may have lived in the area.
 
Please share with me any information you may have on your respective Johannes and his descendants, that I might compile this information. Hopefully I will have a chance to get to Schoharie before the New York winter hits, and do some further research in the original records. When finished, I will compile all of this information in a single volume, copies of which will of course be provided to each of you. I will periodically inform you of any information relevant to your families, as I untangle this web of Johannes.
 
Thank you all sincerely

Jim,
Hi, I have just been browsing your pages, and am enjoying the search. My maiden name is Shaffer, and my ancestors settled in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding counties. I did not see them in your lists. I just asked my soon-to-be ex-husband for all my genealogy papers. If he does give them to me, I can share the info with you to see if we have a common ancestor. I know that Harry Shaffer is an ancestor from the Revolutionary War era, and if I remember correctly, my mother and I had the Shaffers traced back into Germany. Looking forward to sharing info between us!

Thanks for your shot in the dark response to my shot in the dark query! I don't know anything about my GGrandmother Elizabeth SHAFFER (no N maiden name), except that she married David SHAFFNER on 2 Oct 1851 in Preble Co OH, and that the 1850 census shows an Elizabeth Shaffer as part of the household of Valentine SNYDER in Preble Co. When I ran across the SHAFFER/SNYDER marriage in the appropriate time frame I figured maybe Henry and Nancy were her parents and that she was living with Grandparents or an Uncle just before her marriage. I don't see a connection with your folks but there very well could be siblings involved. Just have to find the missing link.

My ggrandfather Robert Henderson was born 1828 in Saltsburg, Conemaugh Twp., Indiana Co., Penn.; 2nd Child Mary Ann, 1832, Indiana Co., Penn.; 3rd Child Thomas, 1834, Penn.; 4th Child James, 1838, Penn.; 5th Child Alexander, 1840, Penn.; 6th Child Elizabeth, 1842, Penn.; 7th Child Nancy Jane, 1844, Ohio. What we were wondering is do you have any one in your Shaffer Tree that might fit? We find no Shaffer's in 1830 census in Indiana Co., Penn. So maybe they got married some where else. Any information would be appreciated.
 
Because Of HIM!!!

Katherine:
 
Have you searched the 1920 Census for your father? That is where you need to start. You should be able to find him as an 8 year old boy with his father and that will tell you where John Seth Shaffer was born and what year. Also will tell you all his children's names. Then you should work backwards from 1920 (1910,1900, 1880) and see what you find. The 1890 census burned and will not be accessible for the most part. Do you live near a library that has this info. If you don't let me know and I'll at least check a couple of census years for you next time I'm there. My SHAFFER's were farmers in MO also. WILLIAM SHAFFER born in 1868 in Indiana, moved to Caldwell Co. MO (just north of Kansas City) as a boy and had his 11 children there between 1890-1912. Many of them ended up raising their children (my mom's generation) in Kansas City.

I am researching history on my ggggrandparents GEORGE SHAFFER & CATHERINE KINSEL SHAFFER. They lived in Waynesville IL. (DeWitt County).George was born 04-07-1832 (place u/k) & died in 1894.

I recently learned that George had 3 brothers who lived in Fulton, Kansas at the time of his death-they were William, John and Ed.. He also had a sister Margaret McIntrye living there. I live near that area, but had not had the time to check on it. It seems that there was a large family of Shaffer's living in that area. From what I have learned they all came from Bloomington, Waynesville and Atlanta , Illinois. I’ve not had much luck getting info from Illinois.

Hi - Recently discovered my gggrandfather was William Schaefer and his wife was Catherine Reitz. My ggrandfather was Joseph Schaefer b. 1851 in Nassau, Germany. He had a brother "Jake" and a sister Margaret who married a Liser (Lizer?). Based on the birth date of my ggrandfather, his parents may have been born about 1825-1830 or so. The religion was Catholic. Joseph immigrated about 1870. (Don't know when "Jake" and Margaret immigrated). Joseph, Jake and Margaret lived in Chicago area at first. Joseph moved to Iowa after three years (1874?) and farmed and relatives visited him there. No one remembers where exactly in Illinois the relatives lived. Hopefully the above info will ring a bell with someone, but I'm not holding my breath here. Thanks

My 5g-grandmother, Hannah SHAFFER, married Jacob RHOADS (born 05 SEP 1788 to Gabriel and Rachael SHADACRE RHOADS.) Two of Jacob's siblings, Eve RHOADS and Hanna RHOADS, also married SHAFFERS, Simon and Jacob SHAFFER, respectively.

Aloha again, Here's more info hoping someone can connect for me. Samuel Shaffer was Born in PA May 1, 1804. He was the second to last of a large family that moved to Westmoreland Co., PA in the early 1800s. His parents are presumed to be Peter and Elizabeth Shaffer. The parents or futher ancestors came from Maryland. Samuel and Christina Hines Shaffer had ten children:
Peter H. b. 9-19-1830 d. 1890
Elizabeth b.2/17/1833 mar. Isaac Hoobler
Jacob 2/17/1835 died in infancy
Margaret 12/31/1836 mar. Emanuel Hoobler
Mary Anne 12/29/1838 mar. 1) Nicol 2) Wm. Beggs
Matilda 1/31/1841 mar. Henry Brown
Samuel 12/27/1843 died before 1891
Martha 6/2/1846 mar. Maxwell
John 3/18/1848 mar. Rebecca Elizabeth Lindsey
James 1/8/1850
Jacob and Margaret were named after the maternal grandparents, so I figured Peter and Elizabeth must have been the paternal grandparents' names. In 1850 the family moved from Westmoreland Co., PA to Antrim, Guernsey Co, OH. Also lived in Harrisson Co., OH. Got any ideas?

Dec 26 1998 7:15 AM CST I saw your message re Illinois census index I am a Shaffer descendent from a family in Illinois, and seem to have ran into a brick wall on some of them. My gggrandfather was George Shaffer who lived & died in Waynesville Illinois. His son Aaron H Shaffr was my ggrandfather. Aaron had several brothers-one of whom was John Shaffer. They all migrated to Fulton, Ks. after they were married. Approximate date was 1884 or 85. I have info on all of them except John. I noticed your name and your address-since you are not to far from the Ks location I thought "just maybe" there might be a connection. Fulton is near Ft Scott, Ks. Will appreciate sharing info with you.

I think my 3rd ggmother was Elizabeth Shaffer b abt 1750 died 1811 near Fowblesburg Md. I think her father and mother might have been Peter Shaffer and Anna Schaub. I think she might have had a brother John and a brother Frederick. Does anyone have these people in their line? could you give be any clues. It's my missing link back to 1700

I have the Illinois Dept. of Heath Death Census Index for the names of SHAFER, SHAFFER, SCHAFER and SCHAFFER. This covers all the recorded deaths in Illinois from 1916 to 1946. I will do lookups, just give the first and last name and county if you know it. If you find the death your looking for it will give the certificate number and the certificates are free from the Illinois Archives. You can only order two at a time. There is a charge if you want a CERTIFIED COPY. Good luck on your search.

Karlyn and other "Schaefer Seekers",
I have a LEOPOLD SCHAEFER in Chicago in the late 1800's. Seems someone (?)
could not make up their minds as to where he was born (b. 1859) ... a couple of censuses say Illinois and the others say Germany. His death certificate states birthplace as Germany, and I believe that is correct. His father was CHARLES SCHAEFER. Don't see a connection now, but ot might mean something later???

I am seeking information on the following SHAFER families:
William SHAFER, b. ca 1830 in SC, was married ca 1855 to Emma LOGAN, b. ca 1832, also in SC. They had two daughters. Information at present is
very sketchy about them. One, named Kate, born probably around 1860, never married and died in Augusta, GA, in the 1920s. Another daughter,
believed to be named Pearl, born probably in the 1860s, married a man by the name of HEATH. They were living in Augusta, GA, in the 1920s.
 
William and Emma's son, James Howard SHAFER, was born 28 Jan 1857, in SC. He married Louisa Anna CALLAHAM, b. 14 Dec 1844, in Lincoln Co., GA. They were married sometime in 1876 and lived in GA, TX and Mexico. William died in 1916 and Louisa Anna died in 1918, both in El Campo,
Wharton Co., TX. They had three children.
 
1) Estella Theodoria SHAFER, b. 28 Jul 1877, Washington, Lincoln Co., Ga; married 18 Oct 1899, to Harry Centennial REDMOND
2) James Howard SHAFER, b. 19 Oct 1878, Atlanta, Fulton Co., GA; married 11 Oct 1908, in Ocampo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, to Robbie Ann FRASIER, b. 9 May 1894, in Oceola, Hill Co., TX
3) Julian Cor SHAFER, b. 18 Apr 1888, d. 14 Sep 1917.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone that may have some information on any of these families: SHAFER, LOGAN, CALLAHAM, REDMOND, FRASIER

Elizas parents were Samuel and Harriet (EMERICH) SHAFFER. They settled in Springfield and raised six children: Nancy (my gggrandmother), Amanda, William, Dora Ann, Tinee, and Henry. Nancy Mathilda LAWYER was born on May 30, 1857. She married a man by the
name of SHAW. I have no information on him. They were married sometime around 1874. They had one daughter, Lida Anna SHAW (my ggrandmother). SHAW either died or Nancy divorced him. She moved on and married Albert MOE in Washington State. Lida was born on December 14, 1874 in Springfield. Albert Moe raised her as his own daughter. Lida met and married Robert SLEIGHT sometime during 1890s. They lived and raised their eight children in Portland, Oregon. If anyone knows of these names, please e-mail me.

Subject: John W. Shaffer
From: "Pat Frappier"

I am searching for info on John W. Shaffer b. 1820 in Lancaster Co. PA. Circa 1848 he married Nancy Shallenberger, a Mennonite and in 1850 they were living in W. Donegal Twp., Lancaster Co. PA. In 1860 they were living in New Carlisle area, Clark County, Ohio. There is a possibility John was
the brother of Anthony W. Shaffer who was born 1810 in Lancaster or York County. Anthony was the son of John Shaffer and E. Willes. My best lead right now is that John and siblings may descend from Anthony or John Anthony Shaffer who died in 1820 in Donegal Twp, Lancaster Co and left wife Barbara (Meyer) and issue: John b 31 Jul 1791, Jacob b. 18 Dec 1793, Susanna b. 28 Aug 1795 m. John Bargain, Anna b. 17 Sep 1798, Mary b. 18 May 1800 m. Jacob Frank, Catharine b. 5 Aug 1802, Martin b. 10 Nov 1804, David b. 6 Nov 1806, and Elizabeth b. 28 Dec 1808. Administrators of his estate were John B. Haldeman and Jacob Meyer.

From Friedrichshafen, Wuerttemberg
Married Daniel Dobra shortly after arriving in the US
Birthdate: December 31, 1831
Death Date: May 5, 1908
I would love to know where she settled after arriving in the US. I do know that she lived in Newark, New Jersey in 1870 and by 1880 was in Bowie County, Texas. I have a strong suspicion that she settled in Port Jervis, Orange County, New York.....but have no documentation to that effect.

Here are my SCHAFFERS; I don't know if they lived in Berks or Montgomery county, PA, or both... my ancestor is daughter Elizabeth, who married Jacob UPDEGROVE, from Berks County. I was surprised to find the baptisms at St Paul's in Red Hill, since I thought the family was from Berks county. Many of the Updegrove/Schaffer descendants are buried at St Paul's in Amityville. George Michael Schaffer and his wife are buried at the cemetery by the "Oley Churches" at Spangsville.

Subject: Shaffer in Beaver and Lawrence Co. PA
From: Rollie Littlewood

The SHAFFER family I am researching has U.S.A. roots in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. James Paden SHAFFER was born in either 1802 or 1804 in PA. According to some county history books I have seen that his father was a native of Holland, but I am skeptical about that allegation. James Paden SHAFFER, b. 1802 or 1804, PA m. Mary Madeline CLINGENSMITH (other spellings seen) b. circa 1805 PA or (more likely) Baden three children:
1) James Kaldoo SHAFFER, b. 1835, either New Castle (Lawrence Co.) or Beaver (Beaver Co.) PA / served in the U.S. Civil War from Jefferson Co. PA / m. Artemesia Deborah TRYON 25 Nov. 1868 in Tryonville, Crawford Co. PA / Methodist minister in western PA nd eastern OH / has six children / d. Oct 1894 in Richmond Center, Astabula OH
2) Abraham Pollock SHAFFER, b either 1826 or 1830, probably in Beaver Co. PA / m. Sarah BARRON 1 Jun 1880 in Shenango Township, Lawrence Co. PA / carpenter, wagon-maker / had seven children, probably all born in Shenango Township / d. 27 Dec 1907 / his family and descendants appear in the FHL's Ancestral Search, put there by a descendant of his son Byron
3) William SHAFFER / m. Hannah (?) / farmer / lived in a number of counties in NW PA / had twelve children / d. Lawrence Co. PA
I am reasonably confident of the information I have on James Kaldoo SHAFFER and his descendants, as his is my wife's great-grandfather and I have put quite a bit of effort into researching his family. I am much less confident about my information on his parents and his siblings, etc.

Hi Shaffers,
I am between a rock and a hard place. I am looking for an Elizabeth Shaffer who married my 3rd great grandfather Peter Lorenz Frank. She would have been born about 1750. Probably within a "buggy ride" of Hampsted, Maryland. They lived and died near Fowblesburg Md. (just south of Hampstead Md She had a brother John and brother Frederick who lived on adjoining farms. I have Philip and Elizabeth's wills but no mention of her maiden name. Information I have received leads me to believe her parents might have been Peter Shaffer and Anna Schaub or Schaubin. Peter Frank died in 1797 and Elizabeth in 1811. Has anyone ran across her in you searching. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I have been watching both of these lists for any hints of my family, hoping that some one would be looking for the same families and would be kind enough to post. Hopefully I can spark some discussion now that I've come out of the shadows! ;-)
I descend from John and Elizabeth (d. 1777) SHAFFER whose son, Simon SHAFFER (b. 1753 Berks Co, PA), married Susannah MILLER (b. 18 AUG 1755 Cumberland Co, PA, d. 10 JUN 1824 Somerset Co, PA) in 1773. Susannah was the daughter of Conrad (d. 1783 Cumberland Co, PA) and Hannah (d. 1799 Franklin Co, PA) MILLER.
I would be most interesting in anything dealing with the ancestors, siblings, descendants, cousins, etc. of any of these people. I have only recently discovered that these folks are *my* folks so I don't know much of anything on them other than my line.
Many thanks.

Subject: Sheffer NY-MI-IL-IA-MN
From:
dbnelson@epix.net (Diane & Everett Nelson)
 
The early history of my Sheffer is very maybe...Ira W (maybe Wilder his mother's maiden name) Sheffer was born in NY ca 1832 (possibly in the Utica area). Moved to MI (maybe Grand Rapids area) about 1840 but may have moved to Western NY prior to that.
 
Possibly in Flora, Boone Co IL in the early 1860s.
 
Living in Bremer County, Iowa by January 1867. On 12 April 1869 Ira married Emily Bean Wilson a widow in Chickasaw Co, Iowa. They had four children
1- Minnie born Sept 1869 died Oct 1870 in Mason City Iowa;
2- Albert b 1871 Mason City, (moved to the Northwest by 1900 and not heard from again);
3- Melissa b 17 June 1872 died 1948 (my grandmother);
4- Myrtle b May 1875 died Sept 1944 married Elmer E. Lufkin.
 
Ira and Emily moved to Motley, MN before the 1880 census and are recorded there through 1910. Emily died in 1899 in Motley. It is believed that Ira was staying with Melissa and her 2nd husband Tom Heaton in Perth, ND when he died in 1912.
 
The maybe parts are related to a Uriah Shaver/Sheffer reported to be a brother to my Ira. Uriah was born in Niagara County NY ca 1834, moved to Grand Rapids MI, then to Boone county Illinois where I did find him in a military census as Sheffer. Uriah married, raised a family and died in Lake Park, Iowa 11 Oct 1906 age 71 years 11 month 24 days. Uriah's death registration notes father as Ari Shaver, no mother's name given. Married Lavina Goodnow, they had 7 children 5 survived in 1906. 1900 census lists Guy E b Dec 1878; Lymon L ?? b April 1881, Clarence b 1885 and Jasper (no dates copy unreadable). Both Uri and Ira list their father as born in Maryland on the 1900 census. Does any of this look familiar. I would enjoy hearing from anyone with ties to these two possible brothers.

I am looking for the parents of John Edgar Shaffer b. June 20, 1851 in Hamburg, Germany (?) and died March 24, 1930 in Allegany, New York. He supposedly came here when he was about 16 years old with 2 other brothers. He married Elizabeth Ross (b. 6-1-1880 in NYC) in New York and became a dairy farmer in Allegheny, New York.
 
They had the following children:
Matilda Shaffer b. 1898
George John Shaffer b. Feb 13, 1900
Hermand J. Shaffer b. 1902
Henry P. Shaffer b. 1903
Andrew U. Shaffer b. April 1905
 
An aunt says that her mother kept up with the other 2 brothers for a while
but she doesn't know anything about them. Any help would be appreciated.

Subject: SCHAEFER, John George Henry
From: "B Eugenio"
beugflip@erols.com
 
My SCHAEFER's are as follows:
John George Henry SCHAEFER b. 10-18-1890 d. 5-4-1927 (accident) married to Grace May YOUNG b. 6-3-1901 d. 10-7-1973. They had three children; Margaret Rebecca SCHAEFER (my mom) b. 3-6-1922 d. 3-21-1985 married to Stanley Enoch HASH, John George SCHAEFER b. 7-9-1924 d. 7-31-1986 married to Alice NUNNELLY, Anna Belle SCHAEFER b. 8-17-1927 married to Vernon JENKINS. John, Jr. also served in the Navy during WWII and is buried in Arlington Cemetery. After John Sr.'s death Grace married John's brother, Frank John SCHAEFER b. 5-16-1889 d. 3-29-1968.
Their parents were Frank "Fritz" SCHAEFER, Sr. b. 1-20-1859 d. 7-5-1911 married to Rebecca WINKLE (WINKEL) b. unknown d. 12-25-1933. Rebecca was a member of St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church in Secaucus, NJ as that is where my mother was baptized. Frank's occupation was a farmer, but believe he also worked as a laborer. They had four children:
1. Frank, Jr.
2. John
3. Frederick "Freddie" b. unknown d. 5-19-1927
4. Anna b. 10-15-1896 d. 5-25-1974 married to William O'Brien
 
Freddie served in WWI and was never the same afterwards as he was sprayed with mustard gas. John was in the Navy and was stationed in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. The family history is very tragic. John was killed in an accident on the job. A week later, Freddie who couldn't deal with his brother's death committed suicide.
 
The SCHAEFER's immigrated here from Germany and lived in Secaucus, NJ. Not sure when then entered the U.S. but had to be somewhere between 1870's and 1889 as all the children were born in the U.S.
 
Frank "Fritz" SCHAEFER's parents were Cusnar SCHAEFER and Icannol (TEUM - believe this is her maiden name as difficult to decipher from Frank Sr.'s death certificate) SCHAEFER. Frank's death certificate only indicates his parents were from Germany. Frank, Sr. along with John, Frederick and Anna are buried in Grove Church Cemetery in Secaucus. Frank, Jr. is buried!alongside Grace at Walker's Chapel Cemetery in Arlington, VA.

From: "C. L. Mateer"
raycon@alltel.net
 
Fraktur is a late 18th early 19th century folk art tradition. It traces back to medieval illuminated manuscripts. Fractur here in PA is usually describing Eastern PA work. There were many fraktur artists and they can be distinguished by their art. Mostly this art is seen in baptisms and marriage etc. certificates. The calligraphy is combined with folk art designs that we are familiar with as seen in the Lancaster area of PA or any PA German, or PA Dutch area. There are a number of books that describe this art and you have probably seen it yourself.

>From the Shafer family homepage from Centre Co. Not sure how we relate to the following family.
The Shaffer Family First Started With Three Brothers And Their Families Immigrating From Germany In June 1710. Their Names Were Johann Nicolaus Schaeffer, His Wife Maria Catharina Suder; Their Daughter Anna Margaretha, and five Sons, Michael, Caspar, Peter, Nicolaus And Jacob. The Other Two Families Were Johann Michael And His Wife Anna Christina Schehrer, And Johann Friederich And His Wife Anna Rosina. Discouraged, And Dissatisfied With Their Treatment After Their Arrival, The Families Left In The Late Fall Of 1712 For Schoharie Valley, Some 60 Miles From Livingston Manor, Ny., Where They Remained There For 10 Years.
Early In 1723, The 3 Families Left Schoharie And Settled Tulpehocken, In Southeastern Pennsylvania. Johann Nicolaus Schaeffer And His Family Were The Earliest Settlers To Tulpehocken.

John Adam Was A Lieutenant And His Brother Nicholas Was A Private In A Company Called "The Associators." They Both Fought In The Battles Of Trenton And Princeton During The Cold Winter Of 1776-1777.
Their Enlistment Commitment Ended In 1779 And John Adam Mustered Out At York County. He Married A York County Girl Named Elizabeth Klinefelder. After Eleven Children, (6 Boys And 5 Girls) John Adam And Elizabeth Moved Their Family To Centre County In 1801.

From:

This is going to be a little short on details because this is all I have. Dora Shaver/Shaffer was born in California in 1863 (per 1880 Harper County, Kansas census). Sometime in 1882(?) she married Richard Young Gill in Kansas. Her father was John Shaver. Her mother was Diana Bodley. John and Diana were lost off the West coast of the U. S. or Canada sometime between 1880 and 1885 (I think) when the ship they were on went down during a storm. Dora had at least two brothers. Fremont was older and Ira was younger. After the death of the parents, Ira lived with Dora and Richard until he grew up and moved to Oklahoma. There may be other children. I don't know what part of Oklahoma. All locations in Kansas are in or very near The City of Harper in Harper County, Kansas. I don't know where in California. I would love to know more about the Shaffer side of this family.

Since the SHAFFER Surname is so prevalent in Berks County, PA there is a good possibility Shaffer researchers may have ancestors from this area of the state. There may be some useful data to your study in the publications of a local volunteer organization. The Berks County Association for Graveyard Protection is a group of hard working volunteers who are seeking to locate and protect historic graveyards in the county. Historic graveyards in Pa are defined as those with a burial at least 100 years old and none within the last 50 years and with no more planned.

My Shaffers are descended from Philip Shaffer (b. abt 1790) and his wife, Susanna Drake. They lived in Muskingum County, Ohio. Their children were Steven (b.1812), William Henry Harrison (b.1814), Laura (b.1817), Elmira (b. 1819), Mahala (1824), John Calvin (1830), L. Louisa (1832), Eurania (1835), and Simon (1837). Do these names ring a bell with anyone? I'd love to
share information. Kelley Dickinson

My SHAFFER line is short. Maybe someone can extend it a bit or help with the associated Lehigh Co families.
Christian, b 1787, PA d 1 July 1870, Lockport, NY
+ Susan SHAD, b 1793 Whitehall, PA, d 1868, Lockport, NY
Julia Ann, b 1831 Lockport, NY d 1902, Lockport, NY
+John P ROMIG, b 1830, Lockport, NY d 1863, Bealton, VA.
Christian (or John Christian) was born 24 Aug 1787. He reportedly came from the Allentown area, probably near Whitehall. Susan (Susanna) SHAD's parents were Georg and Salome. She was born 14 April 1793 in Whitehall Twp, near Allentown. The NY census information on the Shaffer children indicates that the family had moved to Lockport by 1825 from PA. John P ROMIG's father was John Adam ROMIG, b 18 Oct 1798 in Whitehall Twp. son of Peter and Hannah ROMIG. The Romigs also moved to Lockport circa 1825. Any information on these people-- parents, siblings, marriage dates--would be greatly appreciated.

I have John Shaffer b. between 1807 and 1810 in Loudoun or Fauquier Co., VA. Mother's name is probably Rachel [Davis??) b. 1787. John married Elizabeth Gower in 1830 in Loudoun Co. Father's possible name is Jacob or George Shaffer. John said on married record in later years that his father was "Greenway" Shaffer. Greenaway is a VA surname, but I suspect this was a nickname or middle name. By then these Shaffers were real mountain folk and left few records. Surely these Shaffers in Northern VA were from Maryland or PA. I collect any Shaffer info for Northern VA. Please send info to list if you can help as I know there are others besides me with Shaffers in that area.

Hi Jim: I'm looking for a Shaffer who married a Geistwite. My great-grandfather Benjamin Geistwite was born March 16, 1847, probably in Chapman Twp., Snyder County PA. I am seeking his parentage and believe his mother may be Margaret Shaffer, d/o Jacob Shaffer, 1794-1869, and his wife, Maria Margaret ? I believe, but have not been able to find proof that the husband of Margaret was Jacob Geistwite.
Jacob Shaffer was a son of John Peter Shaffer and his second wife Eva Swartz/Schwartz. John Peter was first married to Anna Maria Herrold. I believe the Geistwite connection to this family is firm since I found in records of Grubb's Church the baptism of Jacob Shaffer, s/o J. Peter and Eva (Swartz) Shaffer with Henry and Margaret Geistwite as sponsors. I would be happy to exchange data with you or anyone else who can help me solve this mystery. John Lindermuth

Dr. Brown:
I am writing on behalf of Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw, New York. We are looking to find any living relatives of the hospital's founder - Dr. Newton M. Shaffer.
Dr. Shaffer founded the hospital, then called New York State Hospital for Care of Crippled and Deformed Children, in 1900. He resided in NYC - at 28 East 38th Street Manhattan, NY at this time.
Dr. Shaffer was appointed by then Governor Theodore Roosevelt to run the hospital - his brainchild - for 6 years, which I believe was extended for a number of years.
The hospital's name was changed in 1971 in honor of our most famous volunteer and advocate Actress Helen Hayes MacArthur. The facility is internationally reknown for its research into diseases of the bone and neurological disorders and nationally reknown for its leading edge care in the field of physical rehabilitative medicine.
It would be a great honor to include members of Dr. Shaffers family in our centennial celebration next year. If you could include this query in the next edition of your "Shafer Connections" newsletter, we would be most appreciative. I do my own family genealogy, but am far from being an expert. If you have any other suggestions, they would be most welcome. Thank you for your consideration.

Pat Sutton posted the marriage of Catherine SHAFFER and Elias RANSBERGER, abt. 1772, Frederick Co., MD, and the list of their 8 children, including George. Catherine died aft. 1810, Elk Lick Twp, Somerset Co., PA.
George RANSBARGER and Elizabeth BAKER, daughter of Philip BAKER, deceased, were married, Augusta Co., VA, 7 April 1796 (Bond dated 4 April 1796). Elizabeth was of age. Bondsman was John BAKER. Minister was William WILSON. Minister's return spelled surname as "BAMBARGER"
The 1820 Federal Census for Washington Co., IN, listed George RANSBORGER as head of family with males: one 10-15 years, one 25-44, one 45 up and females: one 16-26 and one 45 up.
Are we talking about the same George Ransberger? I am wondering if the births of George and his siblings are listed in order as given by Pat Sutton. Since Catherine and Elias were married abt. 1772, one would expect there would be births earlier than Stephen's birth abt. 1782.

I am seeking information on my 5th great Grandfather, JOHN FREDERICK SHAFFER, who was born 7 Mar. 1729 in Berlin Prussia, removed to London, paid his passage for America on Captain Bogg’s ship. He landed in Savannah, GA and on 7 Mar. 1750 was granted 50 acres between Broad and Saluda Rivers in SC near St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. He served in the American Revolution and about 1761 married Elizabeth (?). Their two children were FREDERICK, Rebecca (married John Eargle) and Elizabeth.
 
JOHN FREDERICK SHAFFER was born18 August 1774 in SC and died 24 October 1859 in Perry Co., AL. He married (1) Josephine Eckhart, (2) Magdalene Eickleberger, and (3) Pricilla Hopkins. I would like to know the route he took coming to Alabama and if he stopped off in Greene Co. TN for a time. Any information on this family will be appreciated.

Casper Shafer born about 1700??, came from Germany and landed in Bucks Co. PA 1733-1738. He was supposedly married and his wife possibly had a baby shortly after landing. They came over on board the ship "Eliza". He had at least two sons George- settled in Frederick Co. (Cumberland Valley) MD and Nicholas -who settled in Rockingham Co. VA. Casper is buried in Sweetwater NJ. Any information on Casper would be greatly appreciated, or anyone needing information on this family I would be happy to share. Most of the information is on Nicholas's line.
Thank you
