Newton J.D Shartzer b. ca 1845 MO marr. Mattie Gilmer b. ca 1847 OH:CH:Clarence Shartzer 1870; Henry W. Shartzer 1872; Clara Gilmer Shartzer 1875;Mary Dunn Shartzer 1876; and Thomas F. Shartzer 1879; and Roy b. 1882.I found pictures in my grandmother's old trunk in Mass.of Mary Dunn Shartzer age 2 1/2 yrs. old and sister Clara Gilmer Shartzer age 4 yrs. taken 1879 at the Santa Clara Gallery in Santa Clara, CA by H. Schoene, Artist and Photographer.
My great-grandmother, Isabella (Dunn) Jackson b. ca 1812 Scotland or Ireland, came to Phila., PA with her family and later married my gr. grandfather, Alexander Jackson.Isabella was the dau. of John and Elizabeth Dunn.I believe Mattie Gilmer is somehow a descendant of one of my gr.grandmother's siblings.I think Mattie's son Thomas Shartzer married someone named Annie Anderson and had a dau. Annie (Ivanna), and they resided in the Oakland, CA per 1920 census. In 1900 Clara was a schoolteacher in Redwood Township, and Mary was married.If anyone knows the names of Mattie Gilmer Shartzer'sparents please contact me.I need to know more of my Dunn heritage.
