Query: Arthur Shaffer, Madison, IN

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 Library?

If someone can look or the records exist, please let me know, and I will pay for expenses and copies.
