SHAFFNER - Crawford/Richland Co OH

  of 406

Does anyone recognize these SHAFFNER families, who on the 1860 Census for
Crawford Co, Auburn Twp, page 305, were living in adjacent households?

Jacob SHAFFNER, age 35, born PA; Lidia, 32, OH; David, 9, OH; Rebecca, 7,
OH; Elizabeth, 5, OH ; Asa, 3, OH; and John 1, OH.

David SHAFFNER, 44, PA; Elizabeth,26, OH; Elizabeth J, 7, OH; Martha E,
5, OH; David A, 4, OH; Thomas J, 3, OH; William H, 3 months, OH.
David's obit in Shelby Co OH in 1899 said he was born 22Dec184 in Dauphin Co

I suspect that they were sons of David and Elizabeth SHAFFNER, who are
buried in Nazor-Schwartz German Cemetery in Mansfield, Richland Co OH. This
David died 11Mar1870 at age 80 years, 23 days; Elizabeth died 29Jan1868,
age or DOB unknown. Known children of this couple were John F SHAFFNER,
born 9Mar1832 in Dauphin Co PA, married Barbara REISER; and Sarah SHAFFNER
who married Isaac URICH.

Note the naming patterns of both families.
