I have Jeremiah and Elizabeth Bartow Shaffer 1860 in Van Buren Co., IA, Lick Creek Twp. then in 1870 & 1880 in Jasper Co., IA, Lynn Grove Twp. A Jasper Co. biography states that Jeremiah was born in Harrison Co., OH in 1819, and married Elizabeth Bartow in 1840, and that she was a native of Ohio. The 1880 census indicates her parents were both born NY. I, too, am trying to determine who were the parents of Jeremiah and Elizabeth. I also have an informative Jasper Co., IA obituary for Elijah Hening Bartow, born 8/13/1827 in Harrison Co., Ohio. He married Martha Peer.
