Sarah Roush-Mason-Shafer
Posted by: MaryLu McClure (ID *****6795) Date: March 26, 2005 at 16:57:54

Sarah Roush was born in Pennsylvania on January 6, 1815. According to her obitury, she moved to Wayne County,IN, with her parents in 1830. She married Samuel U. Mason there in 1837. He died two years later, leaving her with two children.
On October 17, 1844, she married Andrew Shafer, in Wayne County, IN. He was formerly of Delaware County, IN.
In between the death of Samuel in 1839, and her marriage to Andrew in 1844, she had two more children. Some people are posting to websites that Sarah married Henry Mason. Could this be one of those cases where the spouse died and she married his brother?
Any clues on this puzzle would be greatly appreciated.
