Hi Joan and any other Shufelt researchers-
I know this is an old posting, I hope you still check this board.
I too have Shufelt's in Wisconsin, having a hard time tracking them all, I have used all the surname spellings I can come up with. Maybe you can give me some guidance, here is what I know.

He married Lucinda L. Brownson on 18 Jun 1868 in Kane Co., Illinois. Lucinda L. (parents Asel Marion Brownson and Lucinda Goodwill) was born 18 Nov 1848 in Royalton Twp.,Fairfield Co.,Ohio. She died 14 Nov 1927 in Langlade Co., Wisconsin.

This is most of what I have been able to come up with, I know George came to the US about 1858, but where he resided before Kane Ill in 1868, I do not know. I would greatly appreciate any help on any of the names listed here.
