John B. Deffler/Defler
I'm starting to work on my Deffler ancestors and am trying to find any clue as to parents or siblings of John Blaine Deffler.
He is listed in the 1880 census of Derry, Westmoreland Co., PA as John B. Defler, born 1840 in PA, parents from Bavaria.This somewhat contradicts family story which has him brought over from Germany by grandparents (names unknown).
Wife: Ellen Shockey.
Children: Anna, Charles Edward, William.
Grandchildren: Robert Drumm, Marcella Deffler, William Charles Deffler, Roy Everett Deffler.
His grandson thought he lived all his life in PA except for a brief stint in OH.
