I am also interested in the Scaer family. My grandmother was Hilda Magdalena Scaer Schumm, daughter of John Scaer and Elisabeth Schinnerer Scaer of Monroeville, IN. Her father, John Scaer, was the son of John Scaer (1829-1894)and Katherina Eurick Scaer (1825-1886). The elder John Scaer was born and married in Germany. He must have come to America sometime between 1849 and 1865 and first settled in OH. They later moved to IN, near Monroeville. They had the following children: John, Peter, Elizabeth, Anna, Mary and Margaret. John, the son, and his wife Elizabeth moved from IN to OH about 1904. They attended the German Lutheran Church in Schumm, OH, which is a few miles east of Willshire, OH.
There were other Scaers in Van Wert Co., OH and near Monroeville, IN, but I am not sure of the connection to my Scaers. For example, there is a Philip Scaer (1825-1902) buried in Redeemer Lutheran/St. John's Lutheran Cemetery, Van Wert Co., OH.
I am very interested in Scaer information that would tie these families together. What church did they attend in Germany? I would like to look at the records at a LDSFHS. Also, where could I find a copy of the Scarr book mentioned, written by Lester Scarr? I will be happy to share information.
