I have a couple of things I'd like some information on if possible:
1. My Great-Great-Uncle,
Arthur Shaffer, was born in Madison, IN, on 15 Nov 1882 (per the US Death
Index), 22 Nov 1882 (per his Social Security application) or 23 Nov 1882
(per his WW1 draft registration. His grave just says 1882. His
parents were Joseph Shaffer (spelling varies) and wife Mary Shirmer. Is
there a record somewhere in Indiana?
2. In the Ancestry
index for Indiana, Select Marriages 1748-1993, it lists a Katherine Rose
(Shafer) who married a Roy Pollard on 22 Sept 1914, in Marion, IN. Her
parents are listed as Joseph Shafer and Mary Shirmer. It lists its source
as FHL film number 499404, reference ID P 540. This may be a sister--who
knows??? Any information in IN or can someone check the Family History
If someone can look or the records exist, please let me
know, and I will pay for expenses and copies.
