SHAF(F)ER'S IN PRESTON COUNTY
Posted by: louisee (ID *****5127) Date: January 01, 2005 at 17:23:27
  of 1448

Does anyone have information about an ELIJAH SHAFFER? He is mentioned in the History of Preston County as being a farmer and blacksmith (page 217, 218, 219).
Am interested in his family as my Isaiah Shaf(f)er was born in Monongalia in the early 1820's.
Am having a difficult time locating who he might "belong" to.

Any help is appreciated, if only to help eliminate some Shaffer names. Only a handful of Shaffers in that area in the early 1800's.

Thanks for any assistance.

Louisee
