W.M.Shaver m.Lavina F.Wimmer 2/16/1869

THis is the William that changed the "Shaver" to Shafer in Texas. He is my GreatX3 and he married Lavina Francis Wimmer on Feb.16, 1869 in from what I've heard, Floyd County. I am looking for a daughter of theirs who married a "Tobe" or Tobias McDowell and had a son, Charles in 1894. Charles eventually took the Shafer name because father/mother went to the northwest and Charles chose to stay with Will/Lavina. Unsure of Charles place of birth, probably texas, but unable to locate his mother's and fathers actual name. Any help appreciated.
