In Reply to: Shafer and Shamblin family by Debbie Shafer Walden of 756

I am also looking for a Shafer family from Brown Co. Andrew Jackson Shafer, b. AL m. Lucy (poss Jones) in Milam Co, TX. Lucy was also born in AL. I have information on both of these families. I am most particularly looking for a daughter of theirs named Nell. The 1880 TX Census shows a daughter named Florence who may be Nell. Would you happen to know when A. Jackson Shafer died?

James Knox Shafer is the son of Jacob Shafer and his wife, Elizabeth Louis/Lewis. J. K. Shafer m. 1) Annie/Nannie Jones. They had a daughter named Mattie. On the 1870 Census, they are working for a man named Ben Adoue. Hugh/Hue Shafer is also working for him. The Adoues and Mistrots were friends.

Is there possibly a cemetery listing for Andrew Jackson or just Jackson Shafer in Brown Co?

Thanks, Phyllis Mistrot
