Kelley, so good to hear from you! I wish I could say that I've found more information, but sadly not much. I do feel very strongly that Adam and Caroline Scheuer were relatives. For one thing, there is in the Shire family records a deed that conveys property from Adam and Caroline to Joseph Edwards, a brother of Hezekiah Edwards. Hezekiah was married to a Myers daughter, Almira, sister to Lydia Myers Shire; they had no children of their own, but they raised Frank Shire, my husband's uncle, as their own child. ("Uncle Hez," as my husband knew of him, was quite a character; he ate his dessert first and put his mashed potatoes in his coffee, if you can believe that story. Sounds kinda far-fetched.)

If memory serves me, there are a lot of notes in my file that may or may not have some importance. I'll have to check.

Do you know Saundra VonSeggern? She is my husband's first cousin once removed, granddaughter of Frank Shire and his wife Lelah, through their only child Jeanette. She lives in Michigan.

We just returned from our winter vacation and I have not had a chance to begin working on the family history yet. Let me know what else you would like to know. I have quite a bit of information on the Myers family, for example.
