Margaret Close, 29, born Germany
Margaret Scheuer, 8, born New York
Philip Scheuer, 7, born New York
Was Margaret Close the widow of one Peter Scheuer found in the 1840 census of Amherst?
What happened to the two Scheuer children?Philip Scheuer in this census may be my husband's great-grandfather, Philip Shier/Shire, who was born in 1843 in Buffalo, New York.
Any clues/ideas would be appreciated.
