Scheuer and Close in Erie County, NY
Posted by: Nancy Shire (ID *****9275) Date: March 10, 2008 at 08:15:36

Looking for any information on the following family found in the 1850 census of Amherst, Erie County, New York:

Frederick Close, 32, born Germany
Margaret Close, 29, born Germany
Margaret Scheuer, 8, born New York
Philip Scheuer, 7, born New York

Questions:

Was Margaret Close the widow of one Peter Scheuer found in the 1840 census of Amherst?

What happened to the two Scheuer children? Philip Scheuer in this census may be my husband's great-grandfather, Philip Shier/Shire, who was born in 1843 in Buffalo, New York.

Any clues/ideas would be appreciated.

Nancy
