I know way back there are Garner's in my lines I think with Sturm.
My Grandmother's surname spelled so many ways and recently a husband of a deceased cousin told me another "Shiffer" ??
Just thought I would drop this information your way to see if there could be a connection.My G-Grandparents where Shaffer, etc and Sherman.
I am looking for a Hattie Shaffer that married ? Todd near 1900?She was the sister of my Grandmother and I only recently learned the surname of her spouse from the obit of my Grandmother died 1934 in Ohio.I know not where either was born.
Also noted were 2 brothers, Merlin ?or Murlin and Edgar Shaffer and at the time each was in CO or NM.Believe they or one of them came back to Ohio but know not whom they married or when.Grandma married a Wooley, Woolley and she was born 1881.According to death records Grandma's parents were B H and Jane Shaffer.I am not sure they were deceased at the time of Grandma's death.I have a picture of them with great grandchildren.
