According to Rhea Johnson's 1945 genealogy of the Shryock Family, Catherine Shryock born 1779 daughter of Christian Shryock married Caspar Schaffner in about 1797 (at about age 18) and had a daughter by him in 1798.
However, Catherine's father Christian died in 1822 leaving a will naming all his children or their heirs as inheritors and does not name Catherine or her child.
Possibilities: 1. Catherine and her child or children all died before 1820 when Christian's will was written. 2. Rhea Johnson has attributed this marriage to the wrong Catherine.
Has anyone seen a marriage record for this couple? Or a record of the death of Catherine and her child or children?
