Johan Adam Schaber - Botetourt, Va
I'm about to complete the 1st print of my family history book: "Shaver 2000 Schaber"
I have located all the children for Johan Adam Schaber (Adam Shaver) who married (1) Hannah Harris 1796 Botetourt, Va and (2) Barbara Young 1809 Botetourt, Va.
I'm having a hard time locating documents and sources that can verify the birth dates or which is the mother of the various children.
I already know there are hundreds of descendants of Johan Adam Schaber (Adam Shaver)/Hannah Harris & Barbara Young out there. My request may seem somewhat EXTREME!
What I require or am seeking are any copies of actual documents that can verify the relationship between John Adam's wives and his children. Documents such as: birth registration, death registration, marriage license, wills, deeds, church records, court order records, census schedules, farm schedules, war records, family bible records, photographs and so forth.
If you have documentation verifying your connection to my line I'd like to receive it also. I usually only include in my book files verified data with sources listed. I prefer to view the source whenever possible.
I will gladly pay the cost for obtaining and copying any such documents. There are many Schaber/Shaver cousins out there whom I know can obtain such documents from the local courthouses in their area. I need your help!
I can except the following type of documents: .jpg images(email), .bmp images(email), xerox(snailmail), photos(email or snailmail), negatives(snailmail) and other.
