It seems your George Schafer is likely my Great-Great-Grandfather Charles Schafer's brother. There parents were John Peter Schafer (a tinsmith), born Jan 5, 1829 in Nassau, Germany, died Jan 8, 1899 in Oswego, NY and Catherine Bushinger, born Oct 29, 1831 (possibly Beyreuth, Germany) died Sep 29, 1901 in Oswego, NY. The full list of their many kids is: John Frederick (1855-1920), Caroline Amelia (1856-1943), John Charles (1858-1935), Matilda Margaret (1859-1956, John Henry (1861-?), George (1862-1941), Catherine (1863-1940), Katie (1863-?), Jeanette (1868-1962), John George (1870-1951), Helena Martha (1872-1968), Lenia (1872-?), Emma Cristina (1874-1941). Catherine Bushinger's mother's name was Barbara (1790-1877). I have a picture of Charles. He had a shoemaker's shop in Oswego and liked to go to the baseball games there.
