Looking for information on the Schaffer family (surname could have been spelled many ways). They came to Jefferson County in the 1840s from the Cincinnati area but originally from Wuerttemberg. I believe that the widow Ann Schaffer, her son John with daughter-in-law Elizabeth, daughter Margaret (who married Christian Hablizel) and daughter Maria were there. They were joined by Ann's daughter Catherine Weible (sp?) when she was widowed. Catherine married Adam Hoereth in Jefferson County on 22 April 1845. The Hoereth family moved to Indianapolis in the 1860s. John apparently died during the 1860s (Civil War?), as his wife and children returned to the Cincinnati area where she remarried. I would like to know where and when Ann and her children died. I am descended from Catherine Hoereth and have information on that branch.
