I am also related to the Shier family in Owosso. My g-grandmother, Barbara Shier Hafner, was a sister to Joseph and Frank. Their parents were John Shier and Mary Heindel Shier, and they are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Owosso. There were several other siblings. Barbara's marriage license lists the name as Scheier. I was told the family immigrated from Bohemia, from a village right on the border with Germany. Oddly enough, I also heard this rumor about a mother or grandmother being a "princess", but shrugged it off as nonsense. Your e-mail now has me wondering if there's some truth to this rumor. Interesting. I have a good deal more information on the Shier family from Owosso, please e-mail me directly at email@example.com.
