                                                           Generation No. 1

1. JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD (JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Abt. 1675 in Germany, Lower Silesia near Saxony,
and died July 23, 1756 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Germantown. He married (1) ? Bet. 1708 - 1710 in Germany. He married (2)
ELIZABETH POET Abt. 1724 in Germany. She was born Bet. 1690 - 1692 in Reichenbach. Germany, Lower Silesia, near Saxony, and
died January 31, 1760 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Germantown.

Notes for JOHANN HANS HEINRICH SCHOENFELD:
The name Schoenfeld means "pretty field."

From letters written by his brother in law, Johann Poet, it has been learned that Johannes Schoenfeld was a tailer. But, when he came
to America, he carried on in the occupation of farmer.

It is thought that perhaps he was married twice, the first wife's name unknown. There is a large gap between the first 3 children (John
Jr, Frederick, & Peter), and other children (George & William). Research indicates that all the brothers, except William, were born in
Germany. George was probably an infant when his parents immigrated to America.

Born in Lower Silesia near Lower Saxony, Germany. His second wife, Elizabeth Poet was from the same area. They married in
Germany and had one child there before they came to America. They came to America on the ship "Pennsylvania Merchant" in
September 18, 1733, from Rotterdam via Plymouth, England,--master of the ship was John Stedman.. Johan Shoevelett (Schonfeld)
and Elizabeth Shoenvelden are the names under which they are registered on the ship. They traveled with the Schwenkfelder Second
Migration. The Schwenkfelders were a Christian group who were devotees of God, but their group didn't survive long after they
befriended and protected Johannes and Elizabeth Schoenfeld. Migrating in a period of religious upheaval, John and Elizabeth were
friends of the Schwenkfelders from Lower Silesia-Saxony, many of the people in this region were persecuted for their religious
beliefs. They are buried in the Germantown Philadelphia Cemetery. Their tombstone reads "The Schoenfeld".

and interesting description of this journey, see Brecht, Genealogical Record of the Schwenkfelder families, pg 35.

Johan and his wife Elizabeth Poet Schoenfeld lived in the estate of Count Zionzendorf, at Herrnhut, Selisia, Germany, between 1726
and 1731. They removed to America, against the Count's wishes, in 1733. In the 1740's Johan and Elizabath were members of the
German Reformed Church, along with their sons, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Their sons followed after them on different ships.
See their notes sections for the names of the ships they arrived on. (Johan and Elizabeth were Pietists from Reichenbach in Selesia,
and didn't accept the teachings of Count Zionsendorf.)

John and Elizabeth, after their arrival in Philadelphia in 1733, having traveled amongst the members of the Schwenkfelder migration
of that year, had settled in Germantown, Philadelphia. (there is documentation in letter form that shows they were met by friends at the
dock to greet them---"Sept 28th. In the afternoon we arrived safe and sound in Philadelphia." from the chronicles of David Schultz, a
Schwenkfelder chronicler of the voyage.) In 1742 there was what was called the "Schoenfeld Controversy" of 1742, but continued
with industry until John's death in about 1756, and Elizabeth's death in 1761, saving money for their sons to invest in rich farmland.
The Controversy refers to a translation done of a letter written in that time where John "was placed on the enemies list of Count
Zinzendorf". This can be viewed at the Archivist at the Moravian Historical Society, 214 East Center St, Nazareth, Pennsylvania,
18064), which had been sparked by Zinzendorf when he made known his intentions to establish his Moravian church in Philadelphia.
In Sauers Germantown newspaper John Shoenfeld voiced his disapproval of such a venture because of the rough treatment his family
and friends had experienced at the hands of Count Zinzendorf at the time when they lived at his estate in Hernhutt in Saxony in the
area of Nether Silesia, approximately 4 years prior to sailing for America in 1733. The Count forced a widow to eat a bread and
water diet when she wouldn't follow his teachings, and put others in the stocks who opposed him. Johannes Schoenfelt voiced his

                                                                   1
disapproval of him as the "Lamb of God", as he is portrayed by the Moravian Brethern Church in America. Johannes didn't favor the
Count setting up his church in America, and wrote at least one letter that appeared in the Germantown newspaper condemning him,
which has been translated into English. The German language newspaper was PENNSYLVANISCHE BERICHTE and was printed in
Philadelphia. The May 16, 1751, edition contained the following sentence in an article about the Brethern--"Many people left
Bethlehem (a Moravian town in America) because they did not want to submit to Zinzendorf's domination." It is known that when
Johannes and Elizabeth left Silesia they sailed down the Elbe River on a boat escaping from Herrnhut. As they were sailing down the
river the Count was racing down the opposite side of the river to confront and have them returned by the governmental authorities.
Those he sought were Johannes, Elizabeth, and son, and also Elizabeth's brother John Poet, his wife, and child. He was unsuccessful
in capturing them, and they sailed on to America--that year being 1733.

Several letters written by Johannes Schoenfeld, translated from the old German, indicate that he realized at the baptism of

 FAMILY NAME HISTORY
The German surname Shaneyfelt can derive from 2 sources. Firstly, the name is of local origin, deriving from the name of the
dwelling place or locally where the original bearer once lived or held land. In this instance the name is traceable to the German town
land named Schanfigg, which is situated in the Graubunden region. During the Middle Ages it was customary to identify a person
with the area from which he hailed and to refer to him in this manner. Hence a resident of native of Schanfigg was thus named.
Shaneyfelt subsequently became the corruption of Schanfigg.

Alternatively, this name can derive from a patronymic source, from the first name of a father. In this instance, the name derives from
the Germanic personal name Schan which was the West German form of Jan or John. The Surname thus came to denote "a son of
Schan/Jan". Schantz became a common surname from this source and Shaneyfelt also derived from this source. In this instance the
origin of the suffix "felt" is unclear. The personal name Jan is ultimately of Hebrew origin and means, literally, "God has Mercy."
Scahn was a popular form of the name in the western regions of Germany; it is phonetically the same and the different spelling arises
from a regional dialect. In modern times the surname Shaneyfelt was rare.

*Much credit should be given to my newly found cousin, Laurel (Shanafelt) Powell, who has helped me with information on the
Shanafelt family, with it's many variant spellings. She has been more than helpful in helping me piece together the missing pieces to
my Shaneyfelt family history. (2001)

Paul Shanyfelt has given his name as Hans Heinrich Johann Schoenfeld, and states that his birth date was January 3, 1672-1673,
Zwickau, Germany
******
There is documentation that show there were "skirmishes" between Count Zinzendorf, Sauer, Gruber, and Schoenfeld. They are very
extensive and all written in German, in the original form. The printed version, printed by Benjamin Franklin, is called "Authentische
Relations.." In the Moravian archives we find our John Henry Schoenfeld on the "enemy list" of Count Zinzendorf. Geroge Neisser
in his reference on the Palatines, classes John Schoenfeld as being one of a group of "Separatist who refused to associate with any
church organization, nor accept any doctrinal system, but their own. They never were an organized body."

Elizabeth came to America via Rotterdam along with her husband Johannes Schoenfeld on the ship, "Pennsylvania Merchant."

Have seen her name as Poet, Paet, Pact, & Pott.
She may possibly be the second wife of Johan Schoenfelt.

Paul Shanyfelt gives her birth date as 1692 Zwickau, Germany.

******
Researcher Dr. Hale Shanafelt found a letter-journal, written Sept 22, 1731, that tells of the journey of John and Elizabeth Schoenfeld
                                                                   2
to the Netherlands. Two years later the Schoenfelds emigrated to America. While living in Haarlem, the document was written by
Johannes Poet, Elizabeth's brother, and signed on behalf of himself and his wife. Also signed by John Schoenfeld, his brother in law,
and Elizabeth, sister of Johannes Poet. This letter was sent out by the Poets and Schoenfelds in their hometown region of
Reichenbach. They were secretive and careful as they were afraid of imprisonment. They state in their letter that they were not
confirmed believers or members of any church, that they had their own individual beliefs, and referred to themselves as "High
Germans." They stated that they were invited to settle in many places on their travel through Germany, as they were "by profession,
tailors of singular skill." Poet in this letter asks about their old family and friends, and includes his views about religion of the time.
"..The Mennonites were, in the beginning, very friendly toward us. When they saw, however, that we had no desire to join their sect,
they gradually withdrew and no longer concerned themselves with us. And thus it was with all of the other sects. The Mennonites
conduct is like that of the honorable Pietists in Saxony and Silesia. They court and let themselves be courted. They make a great show
with clothes and buildings, yet in a finely modest manner; eat and drink in the most superb way; they carry on great cinnerce and can't
serve God and Mammon at the same time....we ascribe to no formal religion, had been among the Lutherans, but had been persecuted
by them. We stand thus free in the Lord, hold to the words of our Lord Jesus and His apostles. We are, however, at peace with all
sects who seek to practice the same, no matter what religion they adhere to." They show by this letter that they are neither Pietists,
Mennonites, nor Moravian's, although they had friend and acquaintances amongst these groups. The letter-journal emphasized that
they had their own private beliefs, and they would persevere in their search for freedom to worship in their own way. Because they
had been "expelled from the land" on account of their personal views and customs, and thenceforth were further threatened and
harassed by Count Zinzendorf of the Moravian Brethren, they became very apprehensive of the various sects. They were close friends
of the Schwenkfelder sect, which religion had no formal name at the time. ( QUOTE FROM: EARLY SHANAFELT FAMILY by
Laurel Shanafelt Powell, letter found in the archives of Breslau (Wroclau), Poland, which was formerly a part of Silesia. A microfilm
copy of this document may be found in the US Library of Congress.)

2. JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR. (JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Bet. 1708 - 1710
in Silesia-Saxony, Moravia, Germany, and died 1772 in Elizabethtown, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania. He married (1) CATHERINE
February 02, 1737/38 in First German Evangelical Ref. Church, Frederick Co, MD. She died 1756 in Pennsylvania. He married (2)
MARY CATHARINE MEZIER/ MOSER March 23, 1757 in German Reformed Church, Hagerstown, Frederick Co, MD, daughter of
NICHOLAS MOSER and ELIZABETH STAPLETON. She died Abt. 1764 in Elizabethtown, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Notes for JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT JR.:
He came to America aboard the ship "Albany" from Rotterdam before his parents arrived. He arrived Sept 4, 1728, 5 years earlier, at
about the age of 18-20. The ships Captain was Master Lazarus Oxman. It is possible that his first wife came with him from
Germany. He first married Catherine, and then secondly to Mary Catharine Moser, Maryland 1757. It appears that he is the son of
Johannes Schoenfeld and a first wife whose name is unknown, and was much older than the second group of children born to
Johannes and his second wife Elizabeth Poet. John was a brick maker and potter by occupation, and is amongst those recognized as
early Pennsylvania potters in books written about the beginnings of the potter's trade in that state. He lived in several different
communities--Germantown; Hagerstown, Maryland; and Elizabethtown, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania.

John is listed on the Muster Rolls of Capt. Jonathan Hager, Annapolis, #48-0-6-0, during the French and Indian War 1757-1758.

On Oct 5, 1767, it was probably John Jr. who purchased the 142 acres of land in Peters Twp, Cumberland co, Pennsylvania--which
later became Franklin Co. This was the land that his son John III inherited. He, along with brothers Frederick, William, and George,
were members of the German Reformed Church in Hagerstown, Maryland.

The farm of 350 acres John left at his death in 1809, in Cumberland Co (later Franklin Co), Pennsylvania, may have been bought by
                                                                      3
John for his son John III, following the old rule of primogeniture. John can be found on a list of early deceased members of the
Elizabethtown, Lancaster Co, Penn, German Reformed Church. At the time of his death his oldest son John III was about 25 years of
age, probably married or about to be. Sisters Barbara and Mary were growing close to marrying age also.

SOURCE: PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN PIONEERS, pg 20-21, Sept 4, 1728, lists Johannes on Ship Albany, from Rotterdam,
Holland to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Notes for CATHERINE:
She either died at the birth of her baby Maria Magdalena, or soon afterwards.

Notes for MARY CATHARINE MEZIER/ MOSER:
Married in the first German Evangelical Reformed Church.
She was the daughter, or at least a relative, of Nicholas Moser who purchased land on the Conococheague River in Maryland, on land
near where the Schoenfeld brothers first settled. This proximity gives more probability to the idea that the Schoenfeld and Moser
families were long time neighbors and friends, attending the same church at Hagerstown, where we find John marrying Mary
Catherine Moser in 1757. David and Henry Moser, of the Moser family, in 1826, were witnesses to the will of Nicholas Shanafelt of
Centre Co. The Moser family were well known and long term potters in the Philadelphia area, and John Schoenfeld Jr probably
worked at this trade as did his son Nicholas.


Children of JOHANNES JR. and CATHERINE are:
7.         i.  JOHN4 SCHOENFELT III, b. 1745, Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; d. 1809, Cumberland Co (now Franklin Co) ,
               Pennsylvania.
8.         ii. BARBARA SCHOENFELD/ SHENEFELT, b. 1755, Hagerstown, Maryland; d. Bet. 1806 - 1833.
          iii. MARIA MADGALENA SCHOENFELT, b. 1756, Hagerstown, Maryland; d. Bef. January 18, 1823, Caernarvon Twp, Lancaster Co,
               Pennsylvania; m. JACOB HENIG.

                Notes for MARIA MADGALENA SCHOENFELT:
She is found in the 1756 records of Hagerstown, Maryland, church records, christened as a child born to John and Catherine his wife, Oct 3, 1756, at
                the First German Evangelical Reformed Church of Hagerstown, Frederick co, Maryland. Catherine probably died soon after the birth
                of Maria, and her widower John, in 1757, married his second wife Mary Catherine Moser.

Children of JOHANNES JR. and MARY MOSER are:
9.        iv.   NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT4 SR., b. March 11, 1758, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; d. November 05, 1826, Haines Twp, Centre Co,
                Pennsylvania--near Milheim..
10.        v.   PETER SHANEFELTER, b. September 07, 1761, Elizabethtown, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania; d. October 06, 1836, Conewago Twp,
                (was York Co) Adams Co, Pennsylvania.

3. JOHN PETER (PETER THE ELDER) SCHOENFELD3 SR. (JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Bet.
1711 - 1712 in Germany, and died 1791 in Reading, Berks Co, Pennsylvania. He married J USTINA (CHRISTINA) in Probably in
Germany. She was born in Germany, and died in Reading, Berks Co, Pennsylvania.

Notes for JOHN PETER (PETER THE ELDER) SCHOENFELD SR.:
Peter too seems to be the son of the first unknown wife of Johannes Schoenfeld, along with brothers John and Frederick. He was
born in Germany and immigrated to America aboard the ship "Forest", arriving in America Oct 19, 1752, with his son John Peter Jr.
He was already married when his parents removed to America. He left letters of administration giving his Coopersmith tools and
other effects to his son "John the Tinman." His occupation was that of a Coopersmith, while his brother Peter was a Potter, and his
brother Frederick was a farmer.

He, along with his brothers, joined the German Reformed church, Hagerstown, Maryland. There is also a record of military service,
during the French and Indian War 1757-1758, as John Shenyfelt, being on the Muster Roll of Capt. Jonathan Hager, Annapolis. 6
days service #48-0-6-0.

Child of JOHN SR. and JUSTINA (CHRISTINA) is:
11.        i.   JOHN PETER "TINMAN" SCHOENFELT4 JR., d. Aft. February 03, 1821, Reading, Berks Co, Pennsylvania.

4. FREDERICK SCHOENFELD3 SR. (JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Bet. 1713 - 1715 in
Germany, and died Aft. July 29, 1783 in "Castle Plains", Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland. He married M ARY ELISABETH
"MAGDALENA" WESCHEBACH March 06, 1763 in First German Evangelical Ref. Church, Frederick Co, MD, daughter of J OHAN
WESCHENBACH and ELIZABETH WARFEL. She was born January 27, 1745/46 in (1746) Lebanon Co, Pennsylvania, and died 1783 in
Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland.

Notes for FREDERICK SCHOENFELD SR.:
                                                                         4
He was about 18 to 20 years of age when his parents emigrated to America in 1733. It is believed that his mother had died and his
father had remarried a second time to Elizabeth Poet. He remained behind in Germany for a while as he had ties to the family there.
He came to America, landing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1737, on the ship, "St. Andrew Galley"--being about the age of 22 to
24. He mentioned his brothers George and William in his will in 1784, along with his children. After the deaths of his parents in
1756 and 1760 he moved to Hagerstown, Maryland, area. He purchased a plantation in Fredericks Co, Hagerstown, Maryland, which
he named "Castle Plains." Castle plains was situated on the Conococheague, SW of Hagerstown, Maryland. Castle Plains Plantation
was thought to have been in Frederick Co, Maryland, and Frederick's first deed was for 90 acres of Resurvey on White Oak Plains,
that he renamed Castle Plains. See Washington Co Deed Leiber F, Book 6, pg 514 and 515, 1790--"John Shenefield." Original
purchase of land was in 1756, when he bought property in Hagerstown. His occupation was that of a farmer for his entire lifetime.
See Frederick Co Records: 1760, Liber F, Folio 1043, "Mr. Walter Boyd sold 90 acres to Frederick Shoenfelt."

There is a description of a historic Neiswander-Tovornick house on Coseytown Rd, in the vicinity of Cearfoss, Washington Co,
Maryland. It is a private residence, and is currently occupied (year 2001) by Edward J. and Gloria Tovornick. The legal description
of the property is in Liber #517, Folio #288, at th4e Washington Co, Court House, West Washington St., Hagerstown, Maryland,
21740. This farm complex is located on the north side of the Coseytown Rd, about 1 mile west of Maryland, Route 63, just south of
the Maryland-Pennsylvania border, near Cearfoss, in Washington Co. The buildings are set on high ground, with the house facing
south and the barn east. The house is a seven bay Bi-level brick dwelling, resting on fieldstone foundations. The name "Neiswander"
was inscribed in wood forming a partition in the east section of the house. Beginning at the end of the 106 perches in the 2nd line of
the tract called the Resurvey on Castle Plains, and running South 46 degrees West, 64 perches, South 2 degrees, West 102 perches, to
the end of 83 East, 78 perches, then by a straight line to the beginning. One 6 acre Parcel, N. 549, conveyed by Walter Boyd, who was
probably the son of William Boyd Jr., to Jacob Zeller, in 1891, and one 1 1/2 parcel, W.-453, conveyed by Walter Boyd to Daniel
Schnebly, in 1811, which were described as being part of "Castle Plains." The Neiswanter-Trovornick House is sitting on what was
"Castle Plains Plantation."

About 1756, at the time of the death and burial of his father, John, at Germantown, we find the first land acquisition of Frederick in
the Hagerstown, Maryland area. This being the period of the French and Indian War, the next year, on Aug 13, 1757, Frederick is on
a list for quartering of troops, along with the listing of his brothers, John and William. This gave Frederick and his brothers credit for
militia service to the country, recorded on Colonial Maryland records. (French and Indian War period) Frederick is listed on the
Muster Rolls of Capt. Jonathan Hager, Annapolis, 6 days service #48-0-6-0, French and Indian War, 1757-1758.

He married his wife when he was about the age of 48, in the First German Evangelical Reformed Church of Hagerstown, Frederick
Co, Maryland. He settled on Antietam Creek near Funkstown and Hagerstown. His children were listed on Hagerstown church
records.

His marriage is listed in MARYLAND MARRIAGES, 1634-1777, by ROBERT BARNES, pg 159.

Frederick lived to be about 70 years of age, after having 8 children, and 21 years of marriage. He married late in life, as was often the
case in his family, not taking a wife until money and property were available, and he was successful.


Will of Frederick Shenifelt of Washington Co, Maryland, July 29, 1783, Will in full. This will was registered in Hagerstown, and
probated August 23, 1783. (Liber A, Folio 80: Register of Wills, Washington Co, Hagerstown, Maryland, 21740. Frederick's brother's
George and William were the executors of his will. He named his wife Mary, his brother's Geroge Micael and Frederick, and his
children. His children were all very young when mentioned in his will in 1783. They were (1) John b 1768, (2) Elizabeth, (3)
Michael (George Michael) b 1773, (4) Frederick "third son" b abt 1775, (5) Mary, (6) Catharine, (7) Margaret, and (8) Eve. His oldest
2 children seem to be underage at the time of his death--George Michael b 1773 and Frederick Jr. b 1775 had descendants who spelled
their name Shanyfelt or Shaneyfelt.

His son John b 1768 Hagerstown married Rosanna Miller and in 1804 they became early pioneers to Mahoning Co, Ohio. Frederick
owned land in what was then known as the Shenandoah Valley of Maryland on Antietam Creek, in Hagerstown, Washington Co,
Maryland, and also a small tract of land in Bedford Co, Pennsylvania. Frederick is listed in the book "NAMES OF GERMAN,
SWISS, AND OTHER IMMIGRANTS--1737, pg 109 under "Sept 26, 1737. German Palatines imported in the ship Saint Andrew
Galley, John Stedman, Master from Rotterdam, from Cowes--in all 450."

Also listed on the same ship in 1737 is Johan Philip Edinger, perhaps the same Eadinger, (Eytinger, Ettinger, Ottinger, Oettinger)
family of Anna Eythinger, who married Nicholas Shanafelt in 1786. There was also a Professor Oettinger who is reportedly
considered for a post as Pastor by Count Zinzendork, a founder of the Moravian Brethern Church, at Herrnhut, Saxony, Germany.
Hernhut is the same place where the Progenitors John and his wife Elizabeth (Poet) Schoenfeld stayed for a period of time, before
immigrating to America. In addition there were several Revolutionary War Soldier Ottingers listed on the bronze memorial plague
and are buried at the Upper Cemetery Burial ground at Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where John and Elizabeth are also
buried.

5. GEORGE3 SCHOENFELD (JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Bet. 1730 - 1731 in Germany, and died April
04, 1811 in Brother's Valley Twp, Somerset Co, Penn---near his wife's family. He married SUSANNA BAKER 1772 in Somerset Co
(Bedford records) , Pennsylvania, daughter of PETER BAKER and CHRISTINE LECKRONE. She was born Abt. 1754 in Germantown,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and died 1832 in Brother's Valley Twp, Somerset Co, Western Pennsylvania.

Notes for GEORGE SCHOENFELD:
George probably came to America on the ship "Pennsylvania Merchant" with his parents. as a baby. He was not listed , probably
because of his age. None of the young children were listed, only the adults. He was mentioned in his brother Frederick's will as "my
brother", in 1783, Washington Co, Maryland. In some documents his name was spelled Shanafelt,
Shanyfelt, Shenefield, and also Schoenfelt--and probably other variants I have not seen as yet. It is thought that his German accent
caused confusion when he was listed as Josiah, rather than George.

The earliest Shanafelt/Shenefelt record in Bedford Co is in the name of Josiah (George) Shoenfelt--land taken up on Shover's Run, in
1767, and conveyed to Frederick Naugle in 1772. On this land a sulphur spring was discovered, and later became a retreat for some
famous public figures--Presidents of the US, Governors of many States, Senators and congressmen, Cabinet Officers, Generals in the
Army, Admirals and commodores of the Navy. (Information taken from "Reminiscences", published in the Bedford Gazette, March 9,
1906) George Sold another piece to his brother Frederick, named "Dear Bought". He and his family were still living in Maryland up
until 1774, when they finally made the move to Brother's Valley in Bedford-Somerset, Pennsylvania, where George bought 400 acres
of land. In 1784, 300 acres of Bedford Co, Pennsylvania property was patented to George. His occupation was, of course, farming.

By 1757 George, with his brother's John and Frederick, were members of the German Reformed Church in Hagerstown, Maryland,
where there are records of the christening and marriages of their families. The first break away from the German Reformed religion
came when George married Susanna Baker in the Lutheran Church in 1772, and subsequently attended, and had his children baptized
in that church. His property at Shover's Run was sold just prior to his marriage, and then he purchased another plot. Their son George
Jr.'s baptism was listed under the name ZANNAFELT. Their first child Elizabeth was baptized in the German Evangelical Lutheran
Church in Hagerstown, Maryland. All the other 7 children were baptized in the Evangelical Lutheran church of Berlin, originally
Bedford Co, but now Somerset Co, Pennsylvania. George and his family was still in Maryland in 1773, but not in the 1776 census.
(Pine Hill today is a ghost town. At one time it was the oldest communities west of the Allegheny Mountains, situated four miles
southwest of Berlin, Pennsylvania) George and his family had permanently settled in Brother's Valley, Bedford Co, Penn, by 1774,
which is now Somerset Co.

There is no record of his having served in the American Revolution. In 1776 he was probably at least 50 years of age. There were few
men of a younger eligible age who escaped military service in that War. George is shown on the Militia Rolls of 1783-1790, a list of
male white inhabitants of Brother's Valley Twp, Bedford Co, Pennsylvania. George was taxed for: 4 horses, 5 cattle, 7 sheep, and 1
house. The number of family members was listed as 8.
                                                                      6
George's name was on a list of communicants at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Somerset Co, Pennsylvania, on April 12, 1789,
Holy Easter Sunday. In 1797 his name, amongst several others, was listed as being appointed to view and lay out a road in the
direction of Cumberland, Maryland. According to the Somerset Historical and Genealogical Society, this road was known as "The
Old Pike" or "Senator Clay's Highway", the senator being Henry Clay, had passed through Brother's Valley. There was much
controversy as to the proposed path of the route, and later the road was changed to the "National Road", or the "Cumberland Road."

At the time of his death George was about 86 years of age. He left an estate of 400 acres of land to his eight children. Administers to
his will were appointed April 2, 1811. His will names his oldest son George, widow Susanna, the daughters and their husbands.

No marriages have been found for George's 2 sons, so the lines to the present come through his daughter's.

Notes for SUSANNA BAKER:
Attended the Evangelical Lutheran church in Hagerstown, Maryland as a child, and later the Lutheran church in old Bedford Co, Penn,
where she married her husband, and had her children baptized.
Her birth date is not known, but guessed at according to the dates her siblings are known to be born.

6. WILLIAM SCHOENFELD3 SR. (JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born 1736 in Pennsylvania, and
died 1813 in Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland. He married (1) M ARGARET ANN GESSINGER/KISSINGER October 26, 1761 in
Pennsylvania. She was born 1746 in Germany, and died 1813 in Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland. He married (2) MARY
EARLYWINE Bet. October 24 - 25, 1801 in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Notes for WILLIAM SCHOENFELD SR.:
Book: MARYLAND RECORDS, COLONIAL AND REVOLUTIONARY, By C. M. Brumbaugh, pg 238:

                                                                        7
William Shanafelt, b in Germany, 1736, came to America, settled on Antietam Creek, Md, near Funkstown, which is about 2 miles
south of Hagerstown, where he became possessed of a plantation as well as of lands in Bedford Co, Penn, which he willed to his son
John. He married Ann, b in Germany, 1746 and then secondly to Mary. On the land which he willed to his son Henry were his
private graveyards, and no doubt William and wife Ann were buried in one of those yards. They were members of the German
Reformed church. (There are errors in this book as William was not born until his parents reached America. See paragraph below.)

William was unborn when his parents migrated to America. He was sometimes known as William Schoenfelt, and at a later time in
his life it became Shanafelt in some documentation. He settled on the Antietam Creek near Funkstown and Hagerstown, Maryland,
near his older brother Frederick, about 1736--this area was known as the Shenandoah Valley of Maryland. He made his first land
purchase from Geroge Kissinger Sr. (Gessinger) about 1762. He continued making land purchases along Antietam Creek in
Leiterburg District on the northeast edge of Hagerstown, patenting his holdings of 302 acres as "Rock Hall" in 1806. His marriage
was listed in "Maryland Marriages" showing the location as the First German Evangelical Reformed Church of Hagerstown,
Maryland, Oct 26, 1761, to Ann Margaret Gessinger, just previous to the birth year of their oldest child Jacob. They worshipped in
the Antietam Lutheran church in a log church on the banks of Antietam Creek, a short distance from the "Rock Hall" house as early as
1756, until 1787, when the congregation moved to the present location of Beard's Lutheran Church. He is known to have a mill on
Bear Creek, near Hagerstown.

He is credited with being on the Muster Rolls of Capt John White, Annapolis, #48-0-6-0, during the French and Indian War 1757-
1758, and for quartering soldiers.

In 1776 the county name was changed from Frederick Co to Washington Co, Maryland.
William also acquired lands in Bedford Co, which later became Blair Co, Penn.

His will, written January 20, 1813, deeded his 302 3/4 acres, called "Rock Hall", at Hagerstown and Funkstown, on Antietam Creek,
Maryland, to his sons Henry and Andrew. Henry's share was divided between his widow and his children. After his death in 1813 his
heirs lived on the property for a further period of almost 20 years. His will was signed in German, "William Shanyfield." William
died at the age of 77 years, just after the sudden, and early death, of his son Henry. His occupation was farming.
William, his wife, and son, and many other elder Shanafelt family members, were buried on the east side of Antietam Creek, across
from Hagerstown, Maryland.

William's Will:
Liber B, of Wills, pg 254, at Hagerstown, Maryland--a will with a codicil of Wlliam Shanefeld. This will was dated Jan 20, 1813, and
signed in German by William Shanyfield, and sealed:
To Mary, my beloved wife, 400 lbs current money, etc
To my oldest son Jacob--
To my son John--
To my son William--
To my son Henry--also 155 acres
To my son Andrew--
to my daughter Margaret Leckaron--
To my daughter Susan Bowman--
To my daughter Catharine Artz--
I appoint my son Andrew Shanyfield and my son-in-law Jacob Lecharon, executors.
(William's son Henry died suddenly between Jan 20, 1813, and March 15, 1813, so William made a codicil, leaving to Henry's widow
all that he had devised to Henry, and that codicil was dated March 15, 1813. The Mary above, mentioned as his wife, was his second
wife, and not the mother of his children.)

The descendants of Henry's family wanted to sell and move west, while the family of Andrew did not want to do so. There was a 4
year lawsuit filed by Jacob Leckrone, Peter Sailor Jr, and Martin Bachtell, vs Sarah Shanafelt, Peter Snider, and wife Mary, Henry and
Andrew Shanafelt, Daniel, Susanna, David, John, William, and Jacob Shanafelt, infants under 21 years of age. (Jacob Leckrone was
brother in law of Sarah (Saylor) and Andrew, deceased. Shanafelt. Peter Sailer Jr. was the brother of Sarah. Henry's family had
nothing to do with the lawsuit.

Notes for MARGARET ANN GESSINGER/KISSINGER:
Used the name Ann, Mary, and sometimes Maria, as her given name. The name "Maria" was listed as the mother of several of
William's children in church records, which was actually Margaret. Again, in the 1776 census, her name was listed as "Ann".
William's will mentions "Mary" as his wife, recorded in Liber B, of Wills, pg 154, Hagerstown, Maryland, Jan 20, 1813. Margaret
and William were married 52 years, and she survived him.
                                                                  8

Burial: Rock Hall, Banks of Antietam Creek, across from Hagerstown, Maryland

Notes for MARY EARLYWINE:
There is confusion about this marriage as it took place Oct 24 or 25, 1891, and William Shenefelt married Mary Earlywine. There was
also a marriage of a William Shenefeld who married Rebecca Jeffries March or April 1801. It is thought that the confusion comes
from the fact that William Sr. married a second time after his wife died, and married Mary Earlywine about the same time as his son
William married Rebecca Jeffries.

Children of WILLIAM SR. and MARGARET GESSINGER/KISSINGER are:
21.        i. JACOB SCHOENFELT4 SR., b. July 25, 1763, Elizabeth Hundred, Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland; d. 1837, North Woodbury
              Twp, Bedford Co (now Blair Co), Pennsylvania.
22.       ii. JOHN SCHOENFELT, b. 1766, Cumerland Co, Pennsylvania; d. November 30, 1837, Wilmore, Cambria Co, Pennsylvania.
23.      iii. HENRY SCHOENFELD, b. 1768, Pennsylvania; d. Bet. January - March 1813, Antietam Creek, Funktown, Maryland--at Rock Hall, in
              the fall.
24.      iv. MARGARETHA "MARGARET" SCHOENFELT/SHENEFELD, b. June 25, 1768, Pennsylvania; d. July 01, 1812, Washington Co,

                Notes for WILLIAM SHENEFELD JR.:
                He inherited property (110 acres and 96 perches), date Jan 29, 1813, purchased by his father for him in Morrison's Cove, Bedford
                Co, Penn, and settled there. It has been thought that he sold his inherited property, and returned to Maryland at a later date. Most
                likely the confusion comes from the fact that his father, also William, died in 1813 when William Jr. inherited the land--so it was not
                a move for William Jr, but a death of the father William Sr. There have been no children found for William Jr. in the church records
                in Hagerstown, Maryland.

                Notes for REBECCA JEFFRIES:
                Married either March 25, 1801 or April 2, 1801.

7. JOHN4 SCHOENFELT III (JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was
born 1745 in Germantown, Philidelphia, Pennsylvania, and died 1809 in Cumberland Co (now Franklin Co) , Pennsylvania. He
married CHRISTIANA HINES. She died Aft. 1809 in Franklin Co, Pennsylvania.

Notes for JOHN SCHOENFELT III:
John served in the Revolutionary War, as can be seen by the DAR records, in the Cumberland Co, Militia under Capt John Orbison in
1780-1782. Occupation farmer of Franklin Co, Pennsylvania. He owned land in the area of Welsh Run, Montgomery Twp, and
extended over the border into Peters Twp. The first purchase was made in 1767 in Peters Twp, Cumberland Co (later becoming
Franklin Co). His will mentions his "son-in-law Jacob Meyers", in 1809. His family is found in Pennsylvania records from 1780
through the 1810 census.

Children of JOHN SCHOENFELT and CHRISTIANA HINES are:
26.        i.   PETER5 SCHOENFELT, b. Bet. 1770 - 1780, Cumberland Co, Pennsylvania; d. Abt. 1830, Licking Co, Ohio.
          ii.   JOHN SCHOENFELT.
27.      iii.   DAVID SHENIFIELD, b. Bet. 1770 - 1780, Maryland (or Pennsylvania, according to some census); d. Bet. 1830 - 1840, Ohio.
         iv.    MARY SCHOENFELT, m. JACOB MYERS, March 1800, Hagerstown, Maryland.

                Notes for MARY SCHOENFELT:
                Mary married Jacob Meyers at the Evangelical Lutheran Congregational Church, Hagerstown, Maryland, as shown in the book,
                "Maryland Marriages 1634-1770", pg 116. It is thought that she may not be living at the time of her father's death as he only
                mentions Jacob in his will, and leaves him 50 acres of land and a Mill Seat on the Conococheague. He built a Mill on the Mill Seat.

                Notes for JACOB MYERS:
                Jacob is mentioned in John III's will as "son-in-law Jacob", in 1809. It is thought that his wife Mary was deceased as she was not
                mentioned in the will. John gave Jacob 50 acres of land, and a Mill Seat on the Conococheague. Jacob built a mill on the Mill Seat,
                and ran it for a long time.


                                                                          9
                  This mill is mentioned in 2 papers of Franklin co, Pennsylvania's Historical Society. "Kittochtinny Historical Society Papers", May
                  1922-Mah 1, 1929, Vox X, Hendersen and Mong, Chambersburg, Pa, Circa 1929: "A paper, THE OLD MILLS of Franklin Co, by T.
                  B. Wood, June 28, 1923, Vol 10, Kittochinny Historical Society describes different types of grinding wheels used. " It is said that was
                  only one solid French Burr wheel in Franklin Co, and that was in the old Myers Clover Mill on Licking Creek on Welsh Run,
                  Mercersburg Rd, just below the StoneBridge. Licking Creek was a branch of the Conococheague."

It is also possible that Jacob and Mary went to Morrison's Cove, Penn, to property also willed to them by Mary's father John. There is evidence of a
                  Jacob Myer family there. This was close to the Jacob (son of William) land in Blair Co.

8. BARBARA SCHOENFELD/4 SHENEFELT (JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1
SCHOENFELT) was born 1755 in Hagerstown, Maryland, and died Bet. 1806 - 1833. She married PETER SAILER SR. Bet. 1774 - 1775
in Pennsylvania, son of MATHIAS SAILER and ?. He was born 1753 in Hagerstown, Maryland, and died 1836.

Notes for BARBARA SCHOENFELD/ SHENEFELT:
Barbara is shown as having been christened in Church records of Hagerstown, Maryland, where her parents lived. She was 17 when
her parents died, and she then went to live with the Sailer family. By the age of 21 Barbara was married and living in the household of
Matthew Sailer, married to his oldest son Peter, with their first child Susanna, born 1776. ( She can be found in the 1776 census,
living in the household of Matthew Sailer, which included his oldest son Peter, along with Barbara, and their first child Susanna, born
1776.) Barbara's cousins, sons of Barbara's Uncle William Shanafelt and wife Ann were Henry Shanafelt born 1768, and his Brother
Andrew born 1776. They married their cousins, Susanna and Elizabeth Sailer, daughters of Barbara Shanafelt Sailer.

Notes for PETER SAILER SR.:
Peter had a plantation of 400 acres near Hagerstown, Maryland, on Antietam Creek, a tract of 480 acres in Fairfield Co, Ohio, and
parcels of land elsewhere. He died at his plantation, leaving a will dated April 8, 1834, recorded Feb 29, 1836. No wife or daughter
Sarah Elizabeth was mentioned in his will, causing researchers to assume that Barbara and Sarah Elizabeth died before 1834.

9. NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT4 SR. (JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT)
was born March 11, 1758 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and died November 05, 1826 in Haines Twp, Centre Co, Pennsylvania--near
Milheim.. He married ANNA EYTINGER/OETTINGER January 02, 1786 in Sunbury, Northumberland Co, Pennsylvania. She was born
March 03, 1762 in Sunbury, Northumberland Co, Pennsylvania, and died July 12, 1849 in Sandusky Co, Ohio.

Notes for NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT SR.:
Probably orphaned with his brother Peter as their parents died young--mother abt 1764, and father in 1770's, and raised by his mother's
people, the Mosers of Philadelphia and Reading, Penn, who were brick makers and potters. He is listed as a "brick molder" by trade.
He remained with the Moser's until he entered the American Revolutionary War, from Reading, Berks Co, Pa.

  He served in the Revolutionary War, enlisting in Reading, Pennsylvania, and then marched to Long Island to join the Army there. In
1777 he was driven by the enemy to New York, then to Brandywine, where he was engaged in battle. He was then sent to
Philadelphia, Penn, and afterwards to Valley Forge to Winter Quarters with George Washington. The next spring he was with the
Army pressing the enemy from Philadelphia to New York. He was in the battle of Long Island, at the taking of the Hessians at
Trenton, Brandywine, Paoli, Germantown, and finally at the Battle of Monmouth. His occupation was listed as bricklayer, brick
molder, potter in his military records.
  Nicholas Shanafelt suffered a near fatal injury (shot in the neck) during the Revolutionary War, when he was left on the battlefield
for dead. When the American's circled back after the battle to check on the wounded, "while serving under General Anthony Wayne,
near Wilmington, Delaware, in an attack on a block house on the Jersey shore in sight of New York, he was wounded in the neck by a
musket ball, reported dead by Sgt John McChurly, left on the field, and taken prisoner by the British, who cured him of his wounds,
and from whom he escaped." It is stated in his pension application in 1818 that he was unable to carry on the brick making trade on a

                                                                           10
continual basis--that his old Rev. War wound in his neck had troubled him throughout his life. His widow in her pension application
stated that he had not completely recovered from his wound during his imprisonment by the British. (His name is on the Rev. Soldiers
Monument at Bellefonte, county seat of Centre Co, Penn)

Nicholas made provision for his children to learn trades along with their farming. Some apprenticed to blacksmith's as did Nicholas
Jr, to his older brother Geroge, and some became potters and ministers, and teachers, lawyers, and also farming. Nichoals Jr. was an
accomplished the Gunsmith of Huntingdon
and Clarion Co, Penn. Nicholas Jr. and his wife Keziah Greenland encouraged their 3 sons to graduate from Bucknell University as
ministers, in the early years of the 1850's & 1860's.

The family Bible of this couple passed to their son Nicholas Jr. and wife Keziah who continued to make additions to the marriages,
births, and deaths in the family, until it ended up in the hands of great grandson Rev. Thomas Miles Shanafelt, and finally to Laurel
Shanafelt Powell.


   In 1818 Nicholas made a Revolutionary War Claim as a resident of Haines Twp, Centre Co, Penn, requesting that his son John
Shenefelt of Haines twp receive the pension for his (Nicholas') use. He stated that the wound to his neck caused him trouble and that
he was not able to carry on his trade of brick making on a continual basis--that this wound had troubled him throughout his entire
lifetime.
   On Feb 5, 1820 a John Shenfelder, of the Borough of Reading, Berks Co, Penn, appeared in court as a witness saying that he enlisted
in the Army in 1776 for the term of 2 years in the company commanded by Captain Harris in the First Pennsylvania Regiment
commanded by Col Hand, that that for some time Captain William Wilson took command of the company, and that he received his
discharge on May 31, 1778, which was signed by Col James Chambers. Under oath he stated that Nicholas Shoenfeld enlisted and
belonged to the company commanded by Captain Harris, First Penn Regt, and that he frequently saw Nicholas Shoenfeldder perform
military duty in the Company and Regiment. He stated that the person applying for a pension for this duty was the same Nicholas
who served in the capacity he stated. He signed as John Shoenfelder, and was most likely a cousin of Nicholas. It is believed that this
is John the Tinman, of Reading, who died in 1791, and was the son of Peter and wife Christina.
   In 1822 son John was preparing to move to Ohio, so Nicholas petitioned that another son, Henry, receive the pension for him. John
didn't move until about 1824 as that was the last time he appeared on the potter's tax records. Records for the pension claim
state..."Deponent did follow the trade of brick-making when able, but has not been able for a number of years, and has a (family and)
wife, aged and frail, all of whom have left deponent and are not able to support him." Some researchers feel that this is an indication
that Anna left with her son John in 1824, before Nicholas' death in 1826. But, she stated in her application for a widow's pension that
she was with him until his death, which is probably more accurate. Nicholas continued to live at home in Hanies Twp with or near
his youngest son Henry who worked as a potter in nearby Milheim. Nicholas died at the age of 68, and then Henry migrated west.

SOURCE: BOOK OF THE REVOLUTION, by American Heritage: " Edward Hand and his Pennsylvania Riflemen, sometimes
referred to as his "black shirted rifle men," were mentioned several times as being a group that was able to take what it went after. In
Oct 1776 they were credited with bollling up and holding off a superior British force under the command of Gen. Cornwallis. The
attack on the center of the British line at the Battle of Germantown was led by "Mad Anthony Wayne", along with John Sullivan.
Mainly because of the fog and a complicated plan, Washington was repulsed in a fierce assault on Howe's encampment. The
American's had 1,100 casualties; the British lost 534. Washington withdrew to Whitemarsh (just north of Philadelphia, Penn), where
he entrenched his Army, as a threat to Philadelphia. The battle was an American success, with Washington's boldness in defeat
surprising both friend and foe. During the Battle of Trenton 948 Hessian soldiers on the British side were taken prisoner. At
Brandywine they were not as successful, and Washington withdrew to Philadelphia. The Paoli Massacre was a major defeat for Gen.
Wayne who, in a surprise night attack the British killed at least 150 Americans, using their bayonets so they would not be heard. The
Battle of Monmouth was the famous battle in which Molly Pitcher took her fallen husband's place on the firing line--was the first time
that American regulars fought on equal terms with British regulars on an open field. Losses on both sides were equally great in the
inconclusive battle."

Notes for ANNA EYTINGER/OETTINGER:
Her family arrived on the same ship to America as some of the Schoenfeld family members did--the St. Andrew's Galley, arriving in
1737, in Philadelphia, Penn. I have seen her name also as Oettinger/ Ettinger. All her children and their birthdate's are listed in her
application for pension on file as Anna Oettinger in the National Archives, file #7496 of the Nicholas Shenefelt papers. An Act was
passed July 7, 1838, by Congress, granting 1/2 pay and pensions to certain Widows. Ann's application is also listed under "Widow
4798, Nicholas Shenefelt's widow Anna, a document: Pennsylvania, Berks Co." She stated on her pension application that her parents
objected to her marrying a soldier, and perhaps because of religious beliefs as well. Many members of the Shanafelt family were
members of religions that opposed military service in any war. Some members of the Ottinger family were soldiers in the American
Revolutionary War, and have their names on a memorial plaque at the Upper Burial Ground Cemetery in Germantown, Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. Others of the family may have adopted uncompromising anti-war religions and views. The Shanafelt family were
generally of the German Reformed Church which didn't have such a strict doctrine concerning military service. Ann's pension
application was executed Oct 23, 1828, when she was 76 years old. She personally appeared in open court as a resident of Licking
Co, Ohio, and stated that her husband Nicholas died in Haynes Twp, Centre Co, Pa, in 1826.

There is a bronze plaque in the Upper Burial ground Cemetery in Germantown, Philadelphia, Penn, honoring the Rev. War Soldiers.
Christopher, John, and William Oettinger were buried in that cemetery, and are most likely Anna's father and uncles. In Court Anna
made the following statements: "She declares that she was married to the said Nicholas Shanefelt on the 2nd day of January 1786 at
Sunbery in Northumberland Co of Pennsylvania by Esquire Stofflegatta. She does not recollect of any person being present at the
time she was married except the family, the marriage was solemnized at the house of said Esquire Stofflegatta, her (sic) and Mr.
Shanefelt went to the Squire's by themselves without the knowledge or consent of her father, he being opposed to her marrying a
soldier. She further states that she continued to live with the dais Nicholas Shenefelt from the time of their marriage up to the time of
his death and bore him Eleven children whose names with the date of their birth is set forth on the paper marked 'A'. She further states
that her husband the aforesaid Nicholas Shanefelt died in Haynes Twp, Centre Co, Penn, A.D., in 1826, and that she was not married
to him prior to leaving the Service...." Her application was made from Licking Co, Ohio.

In 1843 she was in Clinton Twp, Seneca Co, Ohio
In 1844, she was in Tiffin, Berrian Co, Ohio
In 1846 she was in Edwardsburg, Mich
In 1848, she was living in York Twp, Sandusky Co, Ohio

There is record of Certificate #4725, issued April 23, 1849, for Anna Shenefelt, widow of Nicholas Shenefelt, at the rate of $80 per
annum, commenced March 4, 1848, by Act of Feb 2, 1848, Ohio, Cincinnati Agency. Her last pension payment was paid in 1849, at
Sandusky Co, Ohio. Her death date is recorded on the DAR application paper of Josephine Shanafelt as July 12, 1849. She lived to be
87, surviving her husband by 23 years.

               Notes for GEORGE SHANAFELT:
               Apprenticed as a blacksmith, also learned to be a potter from his family, and farmed at one time along the Juniata River below
               Williamsburg, in Huntingdon Co, Penn. . He served in the War of 1812. He was probably the only other son, besides Nicholas, who
               remained in Pennsylvania. In the Assessment book of 1820 in Haines Twp, Centre Co, Penn, he is listed as George Shenafelt, 1 cow,
               Blacksmith. The family evidently lived in Haines Twp, and worked in the nearby "boro", town or village of Milheim. Not much
               more is known of him.

                Ohio.

                Notes for HENRY SHANAFELT/ SHENEFELT:
                Was apprenticed as a potter, to his father, in Milheim, Pennsylvania. His father was a potter and a brick moulder. He was also a
                farmer, a preacher, and later became a Justice of the Peace in Pickaway Co, Ohio. He served in the War of 1812.

                He is said to have remained in Pennsylvania until about 1832, and then went to Ohio, married, and had a son, and then returned with
                his family to live near his father Nicholas Sr. until his death. Later he returned to settle in Ohio near his brothers William and John.

                Henry was the executor of his fathers estate and the will was made in Haines Twp, Centre Co, Penn, Aug 23, 1826. The will stated
                that Nicholas was "late of Milheim and Hains Twp, Centre Co, Penn." Signers of this will were Henry Shenefelt, David Mossier, and
                Michael Tetweilder. Henry Mossier was the Administrator. Widow Anna proclaimed in her pension application that Nicholas died
                on the 5th day of Nov, 1826 which is not his actual death date--it is thought that perhaps she was of failing mind at the time.

                Henry remained in Penn after the death of his father at least until 1834 when he still was listed on the tax records there. He is listed
                until that year in the pottery books on Central Pennsylvania potters in Milheim and Haines Twp, Center Co. Henry then followed his
                older brothers to Ohio and is found in 1840 in the Pickaway Co, Ohio, area performing the marriage of Elizabeth Shanafelt and Owen
                Curry. Elizabeth is thought to have been his Neice, possibly the daughter of his brother George.

                Henry's nephew, Rev John R. Shanafelt, son of Nicholas Jr, wrote a letter in 1895 that stated: "The rest of my father's brothers and
                sisters I had only a very slight acquaintance with. Several of the, as I said before, are living, or used to--they are all dead and gone
                now--around Wooster and other points in Ohio. Those there now are of course children and grandchildren of the old stock."

10. PETER4 SHANEFELTER (JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was
born September 07, 1761 in Elizabethtown, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania, and died October 06, 1836 in Conewago Twp, (was York
Co) Adams Co, Pennsylvania. He married ELIZABETH DUTT 1789 in Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania, daughter of ? DUTT and ?
EYERMANN. She was born November 07, 1766 in Lancaster, Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania, and died January 07, 1841 in Adams Co,
Pennsylvania--age 75.

Notes for PETER SHANEFELTER:
Peter and his brother were most likely orphaned as their mother died about 1764, and their father in the 1770's. There was no farm or
estate left to Peter and his brother.

He was bound out, at the age of 18, to a Mr. Alwine, who had no children, as an apprentice on his farm, and also as a blacksmith
apprentice. Mr. Alwine was a friend and neighboring farmer who had no children, and later at his death, left his farm to Peter. (there
is on record in Germantown of a Mr. Alwine with the death of his infant son.) Peter was also bound to the blacksmithing trade for 3
years after the age of 18, and also acquired that skill. Peter became a Catholic on his deathbed, which was the religion of his wife.
His children were raised Catholic. He served in the American Revolutionary War. His occupation was farming.

12. JOHN4 SHENEFELT/SHENIFELT (FREDERICK SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT)
was born 1768 in "Castle Plains", Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland, and died November 10, 1838 in (Columbiana) Beaver
Twp, Mahoning Co, Ohio--age of 71. He married ROSANNA MILLER in Probably in Maryland. She was born January 02, 1772, and
died February 05, 1837 in Beaver Twp, Mahoning Co, Ohio.

Notes for JOHN SHENEFELT/SHENIFELT:
Alternate birth date given was 1768, according to Public Record. Tombstone says death was Nov 10, 1827.
Received the largest portion of his father's plantation in Hagerstown, Castle Plains.


Became a pioneer in Mahoning Co, Ohio, moving in 1804, after the death of his father. He sold his inheritance of land in Maryland,
and purchased government land in Columbiana, now Mahoning Co, Ohio. With his wife and 5 children he made the long trip by ox-
drawn wagon to the first section south of the Western Reserve to what is now Beaver Twp, to pioneer in that area. He built a 2 1/2
story house of black walnut logs, which, though much remodeled, was still standing in 1975. There John and Rosanna raised a family
of 7 boys and 5 girls.

This family worshipped at the Good Hope Church, which was built in 1810, and John Shenefield was on the list of founding families.
Both Lutheran and Reformed pastors served in this church. They buried their dead in the North Lima Cemetery, where John,
Rosanna, daughter Nancy, and one or more of their grandchildren lie, in Sec G, row 22. Many other family members lie close by,
including son Daniel and his wife, Mary Ann (Slough).

in Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania. (He owned land in Bedford, Huntingdon, and Blair Co, Pa, at different times.) In his father's will
John received land, which was from the farm in old Bedford Co, later Blair Co, Pa, that was then possessed by Harry K. Replogle,
Sharpsburg, but had belonged to William, John's father. John sold this land and moved to the Williamsburg section of Blair Co, Pa.

It is uncertain if there were 2 Rachel's--one a daughter in law, and one a daughter. It has been questioned by many researchers, and some accept the
                  above as true. Others believe that there was only one Rachel, and that she and her brother Jacob were merely living together during
                  the 1850 census, as brother and sister, and not as man and wife.

Notes for JOHN SCHOENFELT:
He served as a Private in the American Revolutionary War, in the Cumberland Co, Militia, commanded by Col Samuel Culbertson
May 15, 1782. His record noted in the Pennsylvania Archives, Vol 6, Fifth series, pg 274 and pg 308 (year was 1782). He inherited
and owned 400 acres and a home in Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania.

John and his wife were first cousins--she was the daughter of John's Uncle Frederick. He inherited and owned 400 acres and a home
in Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania. (He owned land in Bedford, Huntingdon, and Blair Co, Pa, at different times.) In his father's will

                                                                       20
John received land, which was from the farm in old Bedford Co, later Blair Co, Pa, that was then possessed by Harry K. Replogle,
Sharpsburg, but had belonged to William, John's father. John sold this land and moved to the Williamsburg section of Blair Co, Pa.

At his death his land was divided among his 8 children. He died at his home in Huntingdon Co, Penn.

**There has been question about the Rachel's in this line--much confusion. It is generally accepted that there were 2 Rachel's--one a
daughter, and the other a daughter in law.

23. HENRY4 SCHOENFELD (WILLIAM SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born
1768 in Pennsylvania, and died Bet. January - March 1813 in Antietam Creek, Funktown, Maryland--at Rock Hall, in the fall. He
married SUSANNA SAILER May 15, 1800 in Hagerstown, Maryland, daughter of P ETER SR. and BARBARA SHENEFELT. She was born
1776 in Pennsylvania, and died Aft. October 05, 1850 in Greentown, Stark Co, Ohio.

Notes for HENRY SCHOENFELD:
Henry and Susanna were 2nd cousins, and married at the German Reformed Church in Hagerstown, Maryland. His brother Andrew
married Elizabeth Sailer, sister of Susanna.
Henry was a farmer who inherited by will 1/2 of the homestead of "Rock Hall", Hagerstown, Maryland, and lived there on the half
which contained the old stone house with his wife Susanna and their children. His brother Andrew lived on the other half which was
willed to the brothers. Henry died suddenly, early in 1813, (He died between Jan 20, 1813 when his father wrote his will, and March
15, 1813 when it was probated) before his father Wiliam's death, the same year, and a codicil made by his father William in March
deeded Henry's 1/2 portion of the property to Henry's widow. In the father's will of 1813, William deeds the 302 & 3/4 acres of "Rock
Hall" near Hagertown and Funkstown on the Antietam Creek--shared and split between the families of his sons Henry & Andrew--for
a further period of almost 20 years. When grandfather William had given the old Rock Hall homestead to the two families of Henry
and Andrew who had married the Sailer sisters, undoubtedly he had wanted the best for all his children and grandchildren. With the
hope and prayer for bliss, in the end it ended in a struggle as descendants of the one family (Henry's) wanted to sell and move West
where there would be more opportunity for all, whereas Andrew's family wanted to stay on the old homestead in Maryland. In 1826
there evolved a 4 year lawsuit filed by Jacob Leckrone, Peter Sailor Jr. , and Martin Bachtel VS Sarh Shanafelt, Peter Snider, and wife
Mary, Henry and Andrew Shanafelt, Daniel, Susanna, David, John, William, and Jacob Shanafelt, infants under 21 years of age .
(Jacob Leckrone was brother in law to Sarah (Saylor) and Andrew, deceased Shanafelt. Peter Sailer Jr was the brother of Sarah) It is
noted by Shari Shanafelt that Henry's family had nothing to do with the lawsuit. By 1832 the heirs--Henry's (1768-1813) widow and
children, along with the children of Andrew (1776-1823), had sold their combined inheritance and migrated westward. Henry's
widow & children went to Stark Co, Ohio. Of Andrew's family, the children went first to Fairfield Co, Ohio, where some of the Sailer
family had migrated and settled--then the children Henry, David, Jacob, and Susannah, moved to Morgan Co, Indiana. See Deed
Book 00, pg 84, Hagerstown Records concerning the deed for land inherited. April 8, 1833 signatures of conveyance were Peter
Shanafelt, Elizabeth Shanafelt, Joseph Walfersberger, Susan Walersberger, Daniel Housley, Elizabeth Housely, and Henry Shanafelt.
(Deed book 00, pg 84, Hagerstown Records, Maryland--deed recorded April 8, 1833, but signed April 21, 1832--signed by Peter and
Elizabeth Shanafelt, Joseph and Susan Walfersberger, and Daniel and Elizabeth Housely)

In 1832 Susanna and her children, along with Andrew's Children, sold combined inheritance of "Rock Hall" and migrated to Stark Co,
Ohio.

Notes for SUSANNA SAILER:
Susanna married Andrew May 15, 1800, in Hagerstown, Maryland at the German Reformed Church, marriage performed by Rev.
Jonathan Rahu. Susanna and Henry were 2nd cousins.

After signing the deed on April 21, 1832, Susannah moved to Greentown, Stark Co, Ohio, with her sons Peter and Henry, along with
Andrew's children. The farm was conveyed to Jacob S. Snider, and appears in Deed Book 00, pg 84., Hagerstown, Maryland, Records,
on April 8, 1833. Signatures of conveyance: Peter Shanafelt, Elizabeth Shanafelt, Joseph Wlafersberger, Susan Walfersberger, Daniel
Housely, Elizabeth Housely, Henry Shanafelt.

Sometime before her death Susanna made her will dated Oct 5, 1850, at Greentown, Stark Co, Ohio, which was proven Dec 4, 1862.

25. ANDREW4 SCHOENFELD (WILLIAM SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born
1776 in Rock Hall homestead, Hagerstown, Maryland, and died September 1823 in Rock Hall homestead, Hagerstown, Maryland. He
married SARAH ELIZABETH SAILER/SAYLOR April 10, 1801 in Hagerstown, Maryland, daughter of P ETER SR. and BARBARA
SHENEFELT. She died Bef. April 08, 1834 in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Notes for ANDREW SCHOENFELD:
Married April 10, 1801 by the Rev Jonathan Rauhauser in Hagerstown, Maryland to his second cousin Elizabeth Sailer, whose mother
was Barbara Shanafelt Sailer, daughter of John Shanafelt Jr, to America in 1728. Andrew born 1776, and his brother Henry born 1768
married Sisters: Elizabeth Sailer and Susanna Sailer. Elizabeth, sometimes referred to in records as Sarah or Sarah Elizabeth, survived
him at his death.

Andrew inherited the other 1/2 of the family homestead called "Rock Hall". He then sold Rock Hall, and migrated to Stark Co, Ohio
with his family, his siblings and cousins.



Notes for SARAH ELIZABETH SAILER/SAYLOR:
Sarah and her husband Andrew were married in the German Reformed Church, Hagerstown, Maryland, by the Rev. Jonathan
Rahauser. They were 2nd cousins. All of their children were christened at the Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church in Washington Co,
Maryland. The births of Henrich and Andreas are close. Upon the death of her husband she was left to care for 9 children, 8 under the
age of 21. She had to endure an estate lawsuit that went on for 4 years, and was finally settled November 1830.

In records sometimes Elizabeth was referred to as Sarah or Sarah Elizabeth, and survived her husband at his death. About 1832, when
her son Henry and his family, were moving west, stopping in Fairfield Co, Ohio, where the Sailer/Saylor family had a farm, Sarah
Elizabeth may have remained behind with her younger children John and William. Her son Henry moved on to Morgan Co, Indiana.
Three of her children were Mary, Andrew, and Daniel--they moved to Stark Co, Ohio, where her sister Susanna and heirs of Henry
had migrated. At the time Sarah Elizabeth's father made his will on April 8, 1834, and she may have been deceased by that time as
she was not mentioned. All of her children were christened at Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church in Washington Co, Maryland. She
MAY have married Jacob "Peter" Copenhaver in 1825, in Hagerstown, Maryland, after the death of her first husband--this is
unconfirmed.

She is not mentioned in her father's will, written April 8, 1834, indicating that she may have been deceased at that time. All 9 of her
Shanafelt children were listed as heirs in his will.

Children of ANDREW SCHOENFELD and SARAH SAILER/SAYLOR are:

                Notes for MARY MAGDALENA CHRIS. SCHOENFELD:

February 28, 1859 in Marion Co, Illinois.

Notes for PETER SCHOENFELT:
By 1815 Peter and Catherine had sold the inherited home and plantation from Peter's father John III and moved west to Perry Co,
Ohio. In 1817 they moved to Licking Co, Ohio. Peter died in Licking Co, Ohio, in 1830. His family then moved to Marion Co,
Illinois in the 1840's.

Notes for CATHERINE COVER:
After the death of Peter, around 1830, Catherine and all of her family (2 daughters and 7 sons), made their way from Licking Co,
Ohio, to Marion Co, Illinois, where she died in 1859. Her burial place is unknown, as is Peters. Many descendants in the family of
Marion Co later began spelling their name SHANAFELT.

27. DAVID5 SHENIFIELD (JOHN4 SCHOENFELT III, JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD,
JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born Bet. 1770 - 1780 in Maryland (or Pennsylvania, according to some census), and died Bet. 1830 -

NIGHSWANDER and CATHERINE. She died Bet. 1840 - 1850 in Ohio.

Notes for DAVID SHENIFIELD:
David migrated with his family to Ohio in1805, when his son John was born. He most likely returned to Pennsylvania to settle up up
his deeded lands and inheritances.

When David's father, John III, died in 1809, he willed property to David. David sold 170 acres of his property, in Franklin Co,
Pennsylvania, to John Nighswander, who must have been his wife's brother as the will of his wife's father John Nighswander had
been made on July 26, 1789, in Washington Co, Maryland. David sold 65 acres, the rest of his share of his inheritance, by 1820. It is
believed that David died between 1830 and 1840. David was on the 1830 Muskingum Co, Ohio, census, and there is a deed he signed
(by his mark) in that place dated Dec 12, 1835. Mary died between 1840 and 1850.

Notes for HENRY SCHOENFELD:
Henry and Susanna were 2nd cousins, and married at the German Reformed Church in Hagerstown, Maryland. His brother Andrew
married Elizabeth Sailer, sister of Susanna.
Henry was a farmer who inherited by will 1/2 of the homestead of "Rock Hall", Hagerstown, Maryland, and lived there on the half
which contained the old stone house with his wife Susanna and their children. His brother Andrew lived on the other half which was
willed to the brothers. Henry died suddenly, early in 1813, (He died between Jan 20, 1813 when his father wrote his will, and March
15, 1813 when it was probated) before his father Wiliam's death, the same year, and a codicil made by his father William in March
deeded Henry's 1/2 portion of the property to Henry's widow. In the father's will of 1813, William deeds the 302 & 3/4 acres of "Rock
Hall" near Hagertown and Funkstown on the Antietam Creek--shared and split between the families of his sons Henry & Andrew--for
a further period of almost 20 years. When grandfather William had given the old Rock Hall homestead to the two families of Henry
and Andrew who had married the Sailer sisters, undoubtedly he had wanted the best for all his children and grandchildren. With the
hope and prayer for bliss, in the end it ended in a struggle as descendants of the one family (Henry's) wanted to sell and move West
where there would be more opportunity for all, whereas Andrew's family wanted to stay on the old homestead in Maryland. In 1826
there evolved a 4 year lawsuit filed by Jacob Leckrone, Peter Sailor Jr. , and Martin Bachtel VS Sarh Shanafelt, Peter Snider, and wife
Mary, Henry and Andrew Shanafelt, Daniel, Susanna, David, John, William, and Jacob Shanafelt, infants under 21 years of age .
(Jacob Leckrone was brother in law to Sarah (Saylor) and Andrew, deceased Shanafelt. Peter Sailer Jr was the brother of Sarah) It is
noted by Shari Shanafelt that Henry's family had nothing to do with the lawsuit. By 1832 the heirs--Henry's (1768-1813) widow and
children, along with the children of Andrew (1776-1823), had sold their combined inheritance and migrated westward. Henry's
widow & children went to Stark Co, Ohio. Of Andrew's family, the children went first to Fairfield Co, Ohio, where some of the Sailer
family had migrated and settled--then the children Henry, David, Jacob, and Susannah, moved to Morgan Co, Indiana. See Deed
Book 00, pg 84, Hagerstown Records concerning the deed for land inherited. April 8, 1833 signatures of conveyance were Peter
Shanafelt, Elizabeth Shanafelt, Joseph Walfersberger, Susan Walersberger, Daniel Housley, Elizabeth Housely, and Henry Shanafelt.
(Deed book 00, pg 84, Hagerstown Records, Maryland--deed recorded April 8, 1833, but signed April 21, 1832--signed by Peter and
Elizabeth Shanafelt, Joseph and Susan Walfersberger, and Daniel and Elizabeth Housely)

In 1832 Susanna and her children, along with Andrew's Children, sold combined inheritance of "Rock Hall" and migrated to Stark Co,
Ohio.

29. SARAH ELIZABETH5 SAILER/SAYLOR (BARBARA SCHOENFELD/4 SHENEFELT, JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS
HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) died Bef. April 08, 1834 in Hagerstown, Maryland. She married (1) A NDREW
SCHOENFELD April 10, 1801 in Hagerstown, Maryland, son of W ILLIAM SR. and MARGARET GESSINGER/KISSINGER. He was born
1776 in Rock Hall homestead, Hagerstown, Maryland, and died September 1823 in Rock Hall homestead, Hagerstown, Maryland.
She married (2) JACOB "PETER" COPENHAVER February 15, 1825 in Hagerstown, Maryland.
                                                                  25
Notes for SARAH ELIZABETH SAILER/SAYLOR:
Sarah and her husband Andrew were married in the German Reformed Church, Hagerstown, Maryland, by the Rev. Jonathan
Rahauser. They were 2nd cousins. All of their children were christened at the Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church in Washington Co,
Maryland. The births of Henrich and Andreas are close. Upon the death of her husband she was left to care for 9 children, 8 under the
age of 21. She had to endure an estate lawsuit that went on for 4 years, and was finally settled November 1830.

In records sometimes Elizabeth was referred to as Sarah or Sarah Elizabeth, and survived her husband at his death. About 1832, when
her son Henry and his family, were moving west, stopping in Fairfield Co, Ohio, where the Sailer/Saylor family had a farm, Sarah
Elizabeth may have remained behind with her younger children John and William. Her son Henry moved on to Morgan Co, Indiana.
Three of her children were Mary, Andrew, and Daniel--they moved to Stark Co, Ohio, where her sister Susanna and heirs of Henry
had migrated. At the time Sarah Elizabeth's father made his will on April 8, 1834, and she may have been deceased by that time as
she was not mentioned. All of her children were christened at Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church in Washington Co, Maryland. She
MAY have married Jacob "Peter" Copenhaver in 1825, in Hagerstown, Maryland, after the death of her first husband--this is
unconfirmed.

She is not mentioned in her father's will, written April 8, 1834, indicating that she may have been deceased at that time. All 9 of her
Shanafelt children were listed as heirs in his will.

Notes for ANDREW SCHOENFELD:
Married April 10, 1801 by the Rev Jonathan Rauhauser in Hagerstown, Maryland to his second cousin Elizabeth Sailer, whose mother
was Barbara Shanafelt Sailer, daughter of John Shanafelt Jr, to America in 1728. Andrew born 1776, and his brother Henry born 1768
married Sisters: Elizabeth Sailer and Susanna Sailer. Elizabeth, sometimes referred to in records as Sarah or Sarah Elizabeth, survived
him at his death.

Andrew inherited the other 1/2 of the family homestead called "Rock Hall". He then sold Rock Hall, and migrated to Stark Co, Ohio
with his family, his siblings and cousins.

and MARY SICHIELE). She was born 1798 in Pennsylvania, and died Bet. December 24, 1863 - 1864 in Cassopolis, Cass Co,
Michigan.

Notes for WILLIAM SHANAFELT:
Apprenticed 6 years with his father Nicholas Sr as a potter. He was also a Methodist preacher.

He was born in Northumberland Co, Penn, as were his siblings. Then that area became Centre Co, Penn. He served in the War of
1812 under the command of General Hull, with his brother John. William and John were with General Hull when he surrendered to
the British General Brock.

He went to Pickaway co, Ohio, at the age of 18 years, and continued his trade, as well as farming. This was his occupation until his
death.

In 1835, he moved to Cassopolis, Cass Co, Michigan where he farmed. He also lived in Berien Co, Mich before 1850.

Occupations include Police work and ran a grocery store in Missouri (lived in Sedalia, Missouri for about 20 years), farmer, and
Methodist Preacher. He was a Circuit Rider for the United Brethern church out of Circleville, Pickaway Co, Ohio.
Sometimes seen as William Shanafelt. Farmed land in Cassopolis, Cass Co, Michigan.

SOURCE: BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF BERRIEN AND CASS COUNTIES, MICHIGAN, 1893:
"While residing in Pickaway Co he married Elizabeth Briece and in 1835, accompanied by his family, and all his earthly goods,
packed in wagons drawn by oxen, he made the tedious trip to Cassopolis, Mich. He had but a few hundred dollars, and this amount he
invested in the purchase of 160 acres of land where a part of Cassopolis now stands. The land was at that time covered with heavy
timber, and few roads had been opened in the county. Through arduous exertions and unflagging industry, this worthy pioneer
succeeded in bringing the land to a good state of cultivation, and acquired a competency. He passed away mourned by a host of warm
personal friends. His widow survived him a number of years, had a large family of children." Quote from the "Shanafelt Addendum."

Conflicting information on William stated that he married Elizabeth Earnest. But, in the old 1893 Shenefelt biography from
"Biographical Sketch of Berrien and Cass Counties, Michigan", states that William married Elizabeth Briece.

At the time of his death he was aged 70 years, and 2 months.

Notes for MARGARET ZEMAR:
Application for marriage was February 18, 1816, and they were married in the Clerk's office May 24, 1816, Pickaway Co, Ohio.

Notes for ELIZABETH EARNEST-BRIECE:
Marriage license was taken out June 28, 1822, so they were married sometime after that date. She was 24 at the time of her marriage
to William, and appears to have been a widow at the time. There is great conflict as to whether her name was Elizabeth Earnest or
Elizabeth Briece, but the book, BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF BERRIEN AND CASS COUNTIES, MICHIGAN, states that her
name was Briece.

Died in her 66th year, according to her tombstone.
Her tombstone says that she was born in 1806, and died in 1862 in her 56th year.
Other sources say she died June 25, 1871 at the age of 109 years, 7 months.

33. NICHOLAS "THE GUNSMITH" SCHOENFELT5 JR. (NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT4 SR., JOHANNES "JOHN" SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS
HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born February 04, 1799 in Northumberland Co (became Centre Co),
Pennsylvania, and died October 13, 1871 in Clarion, Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania. He married (1) K EZIAH GREENLAND March 30,
1823 in Trough Creek Valley, Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania, daughter of N ATHAN GREENLAND and SARAH CORBIN. She was born
February 08, 1801 in Trough Creek Valley, Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania, and died August 18, 1867 in Clarion, Clarion Co,
Pennsylvania. He married (2) JANE MCNUTT Aft. 1867.

Notes for NICHOLAS "THE GUNSMITH" SCHOENFELT JR.:
He was born in Northumberland Co, Penn, as were his siblings. That area later became Centre Co, Penn. He was apprenticed at a
young age to the blacksmith trade, under his older brother George, and then apprenticed himself again to learn about gunsmithing
using full stocks with lots of embellishment, and flint ignited ammunition. The embellishment was generally from coins he pounded
into the stocks of the Pennsylvania Long Rifles he made. He continued building rifles into the percussion age, when function became
more important, and embellishment not as greatly used. He also was a farmer. It was his desire to accumulate more wealth than his
father, in order to educate his sons.

He first settled in McConnellstown, Huntingdon Co, Penn from 1820-1835, and his second and last move was to Clarion Co, Pa,
where he spent the remaining 36 or 37 years of his life from 1835 to 1871, continuing his gunsmithing trade, and farming. He made
long rifles, which were later given the name Kentucky long rifles by others, weighing in at 12 to 14 pounds, with barrels about 42"
long. Popular caliber's were from .36 to .50, with an accuracy of about 100 yards, sometimes more. Pennsylvania long rifles became
famous for accuracy and dependability, and it took 10 to 12 weeks to finish one. The project started with a round bar of steel nearly 4
ft long. Then using hand tools, the smith drilled the bore, and then gouged out the 7 or 8 spiral grooves (or rifling) inside the barrel.
The grooves imparted a spin to the projectile to help it maintain accurate flight, and not tumble end over end. The bore was finished,
and then the round bar was ground down to octagonal shape to reduce weight. The smith then made his own stock, usually from hard
maple or black walnut wood. He then cast brass parts in sand molds. The only part not made himself was the firing mechanism,
called the lock. Decorative inlays were made by pounding down silver coins and cutting the inlays from the precious metal. Nicholas
customarily decorated his rifle with crescent moons, or "Shennefelt eagles." Some of his earlier guns displayed 30 or more silver and
brass inlays, many of them finely engraved by him. (During his ensuing Clarion days he concentrated on utility rather than art, but all
of his rifles can be viewed as works of art today.)

He had 11 children and moved to Porter Twp, Clarion Co, Pennsylvania, 1835, and purchased a farm on Leatherwood Creek, listing
                                                                        28
his occupation as farmer. His son Andrew was an apprentice under him for the gunsmithing trade, in the Clarion shop, before going
off to college and the Baptist ministry. Also Daniel Sarvey and Anthony Bonnett learned the trade there. Bonnett established a shop in
Jefferson Co, and returned to Clarion when Nicholas retired about 1868. No one knows for certain just how many rifles her produced
as he didn't number them. He worked for over 45 years making rifles, which are quite famous these days, and fetch a large sum of
money at auction.

 After Keziah died Nicholas married Jane McNutt. He was called Nicholas "The Gunsmith". His guns were stamped with the
signature "N.Shennefelt". In a notebook he wrote in 1833 he signed his name "Nicholas Shinnefelt", further on in the book is a wax
seal that says "N. Shanafelt". By 1835 percussion rifles had replaced the clumsy old flintlocks. But, the long rifles were still muzzle
loaders, and single shots. A rifle man had to make his first shot count, and he had to keep his powder dry.

The family Bible that began with the family of Nicholas Sr. came to belong to Nicholas Jr. and his wife Keziah Greenland. Eventually
it went to Rev. Thomas Miles Shanafelt, and ended up with Laurell Shanafelt Powell, author of the book, EARLY SHANAFELT
FAMILY. The following entries are noted in the generation of Nicholas Jr.

DEATHS:
Keziah Shanafelt, wife of Nicholas, Departed this Life Aug 18, 1867, aged 66 years, 6 months, and 17 days.
Nicholas Shanafelt departed this life Oct 11th A.D. 1871, at 8 O'Clock in the morning.
Rev. Andrew Fuller Shanafelt died at Chester, Pa, March 16th, 1875. Aged 43 years, and 6 days.
Rev. John R. Shanafelt died at Lawrence, Kansas, May 27, 1898, aged 69 years, and 7 months.
William Shanafelt died at Brinkerton, Clarion Co, Pa, Aug 25, 1898, aged 73 years, 5 months, & 21 days.
Catherine, wife of William Shanafelt, died at Brinkerton, Pa, Oct 25, 1876, in the 53rd year of her age
Wm. Lewis, son of William and Cahterine Shanafelt, died at Ringold, Platte Valley, Nebraska, Oct 8, 1882.
(*please note there was 5 different spellings of Shanafelt, written on the same page, in the Family Bible of Nicholas Jr. and
Keziah==Shinefels, Shinefelt, Shinnefelt, Shenefelt, Shennefelt. The name went through much Anglicization from it's German origin
of Schoenfeld to an English form.)

In about 1868 Nicholas Jr. sold his gunsmith shop in the town of Clarion to his old apprentice-assistant, Anthony Bonnet, and spent
the remained of his 3 years before his death "in retirement." ( In 1868 he was assessed as a gunsmith, but the following year he was
carried on tax rolls as 'gentleman, meaning that he was retired.) He lived to be 73 years of age, and was known for his work in the
Crooked Creek Baptist Church as a deacon, and also did benevolent work. In politics he was known as a Whig, and later a
Republican. (excerpts from "1898 BEERS BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA", including the counties

Notes for KEZIAH GREENLAND:
June 11, 1858, Keziah wrote her son, Rev Thomas Miles Shanafelt, a letter concerning her heritage. In it she stated:
"Grandmother had 3 sisters and 2 brothers. Nancy was married to Jacob Dean, Nelly to William Kelly. Hannah to Mr. Ploughman--
she died near Baltimore, I never say her. Her brother David was married to Mary Chilcott, old Richard's sister. He moved to Lake
Aray (Erie) and died. William Loveall and his sisters lie in the graveyard in Trough Creek Valley. My great grandmother was a
widow--she lived and died with her son David--I have often seen her and remember well the day she was buried. Grandmother's
brother's and sister's moved to Trough Creek Valley soon after she died, and Aunt Nelly Kelly was a widow many years. She was 99
years old when she died. Aunt Nancy Dean was struck with palsey, was helpless near a year. Grandmother lived till she was three
score years and ten, and died with dropsy at her old home with her youngest son Joshua."

She was noted to be 66 years, 6 months, and 17 days at the time of her death.
Some researchers give her birth date as Feb 1, 1801, and others give it as Feb 8, 1801.
Her marriage to Nicholas was performed by her Uncle, Squire Elisah Greenland.
Their first home was in McConnellstown, where Nicholas labored industriously at his trade of gunsmith, educated his family, and
acquired considerable property. The area they moved to was Leatherwood, Armstrong Co, Penn--later became Clarion Co.

Keziah was known to be an earnest Christian woman, and a member of the Baptist Church.

In Clarion, Pa, August 18, 1867, Keziah Shanafelt died, in the 67th year of her age. Mrs. Shanafelt was born near Cassville,
Huntingdon Co, PA, February 1, 1801. She was blessed with pious parents, her Father being for many years an efficient deacon of a
Baptist Church. In the year 1829, March 30, she was married to Nicholas Shanafelt, for many years the beloved deacon of the
Strattonville Church, Clarion County, who yet survives her. In the year 1827 she was brought to hope in the mercy of God, and
received Baptism at the hands of Rev. Thomas Williams. She was a member of Crooked Creek Church until 1836 when her husband
moved to Clarion County. She remained a member of the Zion Church, then under the pastoral care of Rev. "Father Thomas" of
precious memory, until her removal to Clarion, and the organization of the Strattonville Church, of which she was a constant member.
She was in each church relation faithful to her covenant vows, and endeared to all by her many virtues, until she exchanged the church
militant for the church triumphant, on the Sabbath morning of August 18th last. This is the simple record of the life and death of a
Clarion lady of no ordinary worth. But few names will suffer less by a delayed obituary notice,--in this case unavoidable. Although
many weeks have elapsed since she entered on the rest of heaven, yet even now many hearts exclaim "Is mother Shanafelt dead!
Shall we see her face no more?" During the last part of her life she was called to pass through the furnace of affliction but she
glorified God in the fires. She exercised strong faith and cheerful, and allowed patience to have it's perfect work. John, Andrew, and
Thomas are well known, active and efficient ministers of the gospel, with the other, William, is the efficient senior deacon of one of
the churches with which for a time she was connected. These with a devoted and pious daughter, and our venerable brother, her
husband, with several ministers present and a large concourse of sympathizing friends, followed her remains to the grave, and there
deposited time in the hope of a glorious resurrection. The memory of the just is blessed. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

Excerpt from HISTORY OF TRUMBULL & MAHONING COUNTIES, OHIO by Williams
Captain Jacob Gilbert was one of the first pioneers in Beaver Twp, Mahoning Co, Ohio, in 1892. (**JACOB GILBERT and JOHN
SHENEFELT/ SHANAFELT became good friends, and there was intermarriage in their families**) Capt Gilbert was a native of
Maryland. John Shanafelt/Shenefelt arrived there with his family about the same period of time. Both men were in the War of 1812.
Other pioneers were Adam Little, Billy Stewart who was an old bachelor, Abraham Miller, Peter Stevens, Christopher Mentzer was

and Michael Dutterer, and John Harman, Henry Neidigh, and Frederick Sponseller. Coal was found in the area. The early settlers of
Green Twp were for the most part Germans, attracted by the excellent land. Henry Pyle and his wife arrived from Germany in 1804,

                                                                         33

Burial: Pinegrove Cemetery, Morgan Twp, Gallia Co, Ohio

Notes for CATHEIRINE GRIMM:
Catherine was Sioux Indian.

Greda Gladys (Piper) Hill relates:
"Stanley Payne sent me the family history, 2 pages written by Finley Clair Shenefield, a great grandson of Jacob and Cahterine Grim
Shenefield. He was 7 when Catherine died and it is his memory that Catherine was a Sioux Indian. With all the documentation I have
for the family, it is next to impossible....I have christening records for her mother and grandmother, not her. Census and her death
certificate say she is white. The quit claim deed by her mother for the heirs of John Grim state, "my daughter Catherine" which would
prove her parentage. If by law one had to be blood related to inherit when the deed was written, that would prove John was her blood
father. I don't have records here to double check anything for dates and exact wording. Her obit, Doc #71 in the book states that up to
the time of her death she was able to relate many remembrances of her youth, and she enjoyed talking to her friends and recalling
familiar scenes of her childhood days. There is no hint that she was Indian (Sioux). The newspaper picture (a pencil drawing) with
the obit is so dark and creased over her face....in her tintype Doc p 66 she has dark hair and light skin. My father was 15 and lived
across the road from her when she died. I went to family reunions with children and grandchildren of Catherine's daughter Charlotte
until I was 18. It is incredible to think they didn't know or speak of it, if Catherine was Indian. I have her direct lines back to
Germany for all but her grandfather Peter Miller, and John Grim's mother Catherine..."

Catherine lived to be 94 years, 9 months, and 3 days.

**************
Had a homestead in Jay Co, Indiana. It was 640 acres of property on which they built a two story house. They raised wheat, oats, and
harvested grapes. This old homestead still stands but is no longer owned by the Shaneyfelt family.

In a 1994 search of gravestones by Nilah Booth, it appears that only one family headstone remains standing, that of the 10th child of
John, who was born in Indiana--Mary Ann Shaneyfelt, born 1854, and died Sept 16, 1858.

John Shaneyfelt was known to be a farmer by occupation, and practiced the Baptist religion.
Some researchers feel that he was married in York Co, Pennsylvania, instead of Indiana.

Time frame for land purchase:
Jay Co, Indiana
March 2, 1861, bought 200 acres
May 31, 1861, had 120 acres, sold to Daniel Miller
Jan 29, 1864, had 80 acres, sold to John (his son)
Jan 29, 1864, had 80 acres, sold to Henry (his son)
Jan 29, 1864, had 89 acres, sold to George Jr. (his son)

Randolph Co, Indiana
1865, .....40 acres, sold to Elizabeth Smail (his daughter)

  At one time George Sr. & Nancy owned about 560 acres of land in Jay Co, Indiana, plus 40 acres in Randolph Co, Indiana. They
also owned city property in Portland, Indiana, and in New Pittsburgh. It is evident that they gave, probably sold for a small sum of
money for the legal record, portions to their adult children, and used the sale of portions to outsiders to invest in new farms. Known
for their industry and thrifty ways, as Germans traditionally are, George Sr. & Nancy probably were confident they had everything
arranged comfortably for their large family of children and for their old age. Then trouble began with Nancy left for Alabama with
some of her children, and some remained behind in Indiana. In 1899 she said in that she wanted her "rent wheat & oats" sent to
Alabama so she could sell it for seed, and her children in Indiana refused to send it. On April 7, 1899, she sent her son David back to
take charge of the rents, and while he was there a guardian was appointed, who took possession of the crop. Nancy stated that David
was there to take possession of it for her, but her son Henry in Indiana told the guardian to take it. The children in Indiana had
arranged for the guardian claiming she was of unsound mind. June 1899, the brother's in Indiana, Henry and Jacob, succeeded in
                                                                  43
their effort to have their mother, Nancy, declared of unsound mind. They got the grain, and the property (40 acres of land in Randolph
Co, Indiana), plus a house and lot. But through the ensuing entanglement, the lawyers and administrators got it all. The property was
later sold for back taxes. From the depositions on file it would appear that Nancy retained her sound mind and ability to direct
handling of her finances into her old age.

Many of the descendants of this couple went south to Alabama, and once again the name was changed. These family members
became Shenneyfelt's, or even Chennyfelt's.

At one time John was in possession of the original family Bible of John and Elizabeth (Poet) Schoenfeld.
It was passed down through the family, until it was put on display at a Birmingham, Alabama exhibit, and was stolen from the display.
It was a German Bible printed by Christopher Sauer I, who was Germantown's first printer, who produced America's first Bible in
1743, in German--years before a Bible was printed in English, in what is now the United States. Today these Bibles are rare, and
highly prized by collectors and libraries. Therefore making this Bible one of the earliest Bibles printed in the German language in
America by Sauer, and making it very valuable.

78. PETER5 SHANAFELT (HENRY4 SCHOENFELD, WILLIAM SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1
SCHOENFELT) was born February 22, 1800 in Funkstown, Maryland, and died May 08, 1875 in Stark Co, Ohio. He married (1) E LIZA
MCPIKE. He married (2) ELIZABETH FUNK May 08, 1822 in Washington Co, Maryland, daughter of H ENRY FUNK and CATHERINE.
She was born September 26, 1801 in Probably Maryland, and died March 28, 1863 in Stark Co, Ohio.

Notes for PETER SHANAFELT:
He was baptized June 15, 1807, with sisters Sarah and Susan, Zion Reformed Church, Hagerstown, Washington Co, Maryland.

It is likely that Peter and his brother Henry made more than one trip from Maryland to Ohio, and on the second trip they took along
                                                                         54
cousins Henry, Andrew, Mary, Daniel, Jacob, and David Shanafelt, and their sister Susannah, wife of Henry Copenhaver, about 1832.
They stopped for an indefinite time in Fairfield Co, Ohio, before going on to Greentown, Stark Co, Ohio, because their grandfather
Peter Sailer, owned 400 acres of land there. (the entire party in 1832 consisted of Henry, Peter, their mother Susanna, their sister
Sarah (Shanafelt) Cobaugh, and their cousins Andrew and Daniel who were the sons of Andrew Shanafelt born 1768. Cousins Jacob,
David, and Susanna, the other sons and daughter of Andrew and Elizabeth, went to Mooresville, Indiana. Jacob is later found in St.
Louis, Missouri.)



He was different from his brothers in that a great part of his livelihood was from hunting, trapping, and fishing, and those sports were
his interest and hobby as well. At one time between him and his friend, Judge Schrantz, they owned 52 hound dogs. At one time he is
said to have tied short fishing lines on shingles and baited the hooks with small frogs, then threw them in the water to catch fish. The
next morning he went out to collect his lines and get his fish, but he had made the lines a little too long and every frog was sitting on
top of his shingle enjoying the ride! This accounting was told by his grandson Fred P. Shanafelt. (Story shared by Fred P. Shanafelt.)

Another birthdate given for Henry is June 30, 1803 at Rock Hall, Hagerstown, Maryland.

Henry was christened June 15, 1807, on the same day as his brother Andrew, 4 years after their births. Their births were quite close
together. They were christened at the Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church, Washington Co (formerly Frederick Co), Maryland.

Henry was the eldest son of Andrew Sr. and was made guardian of all the minor children, including William, when his mother passed
away. After the death of his wife Hannah he married again to a woman about 10 years younger than he was, whose name was
Elizabeth Hanaway.

He migrated first to Fairfield Co, Ohio, where other Sailer family members were, and in 1837, he bought 3 lots of land in Royalton,
Fairfield Co, Ohio. In 1840 he is seen in Clear Creek, Fairfield Co, Ohio, as Henry Shimfelt. By 1842 he is listed on the tax records

in Mooresville, and then moved on in 1842. He moved his new wife Elizabeth, and 2 young sons George and Wesley from
Mooresville to Keokuk Co, Iowa where his brothers David and Jacob had moved, leaving his 4 children from his first marriage (Sarah

87. ANDREAS "ANDREW JR. "5 SHANAFELT (ANDREW4 SCHOENFELD, WILLIAM SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2

Springfield Twp, Summit Co, Ohio. He married (1) S ARAH ANN LOUISA BRANNON March 21, 1822 in Hagerstown, Washington Co,
Maryland. He married (2) ELIZABETH WISE March 10, 1830 in Stark Co, Ohio. She died 1892 in Springfield Twp, Summit Co,
Ohio.

Notes for ANDREAS "ANDREW JR. " SHANAFELT:
Christened June 15, 1807, at the Hagerstown Zion Reformed Church, Washington Co (formerly Frederick Co), Maryland, at the same
time as his brother Henry--some 4 years after their births.]

June 25, 1822, 2 months after his first marriage to Sarah Ann Louise Brannon, he placed an announcement in the local newspaper in
Washington Co, Maryland, stating that she had "left his bed and board, and he will no longer pay her debts."

For his second Marriage to Elizabeth Wise there are 2 conflicting dates of March 10, 1830 and March 16, 1830. There may have been
a double wedding ring ceremony with his brother Daniel and his wife Sarah Catherine Funk. It is noted that it was common for a
couple to marry "in the eyes of the people" in a public ceremony, and again "in the eyes of the Lord", before a minister, hence the birth
of their son was not necessarily illegitimate. Andrew Jr. can be found in Springfield Twp, Summit Co, Ohio, in the 1860 census.

                                                                     57
Notes for SARAH ANN LOUISA BRANNON:
Sarah had "left his bed and board" by June 25, 1822--they were only married in Thursday, March 21, of 1822, so they were together
for 3 months. This announcement in the Newspaper cautions that he Andrew will no longer pay her debts because she had left him.

Notes for ADAM SHANAFELT:
On an 1833-1835 taxable list for Seneca and Crawford Co's, Ohio, shows an Adam in Seneca and his brothers William, Samuel,
David, & John in Crawford Co, Ohio. It appears that their brother Jacob was in Summit Co, probably during this period. Adam is on
the 1850 census in Venice Twp, Seneca Co, Ohio. Adam and Anna Catherine later resided in Salem Twp, Marion Co, Illinois. Adam
and his Brothers David and Samuel are all found in Salem, but Adam must have stayed in Ohio longer than the others. Adam's
                                                                    60

A HISTORY OF MARION CO, OHIO SHANAFELT'S, by DR. GEORGE E. ROSS:
THE OLD LANDMARK
  During the early years of Marion Co, state coach routes criss-crossed the area, generally following the even earlier trails of Indians
and pioneers. Stops were scheduled by the drivers to give rest to passengers and horses as well as provide for their feeding and other
comforts. Any number of stops were known to have existed in the county, but the last and possibly the least known, was called the
"Old Landmark." It was operated from 1846 until the invasion of the railroads made it totally obsolete in the 1870's, by Samuel and
Elizabeth (Courson) Shanafelt, my great great grandparents. It was located a mile or so west of Salem on the old St. Louis to
Vincennes Trail, now U.S. Route 50.....

Samuel died at the age of 72 years. His daughter "Miss Kitty" described him as being "a short, heavy, muscular man of few words,
broad minded and always deep in thought. He was a good worker who did not drink. More or less, he was put out to work at the age
of 13--root, hog, or die--digging the canal at Newark, Ohio. When finished he got 40 acres of Beech Timber in Crawford Co, Ohio.
Then he married Elizabeth Courson, my mother. They nearly starved until the raised a crop. My fahter could not read, nor write, no
schooling, but no one ever cheated him. My mother was a hard worker and a business woman. My parents lived on venison, wild
turkey, honey from bee trees, and used potatoes for bread. Mother would often mix potatoes with a little meal and bake them on a
chip before the fireplace. Grandmother Courson lived 11 miles from the Indian reservation and often heard the war dances. She was
the mother of 11 children--6 boys, and 5 girls. Mother could not read until her oldest Daughter, Jane, taught her....." (**Part of a letter
found in the Bible of Samuel's daughter "Miss Kitty" when she died)

                Source: Brinkerhoff's History of Marion Co, Illinois, pg 354-356
                "Samuel A. Schanafelt, a prominent farmer of Salem twp, Marion Co, Illinois, who makes his home one and one half miles west of
                Salem, was born in Crawford Co, Ohio, Feb 19, 1844, son of David and Sarah (Orr) Schanafelt. They were both natives of Ohio, and
                were married in Licking Co, that state. They farmed in Crawford Co, the Buckeye state, until 1846, when they came to Illinois,
                settling in Marion Co. They made the trip overland and camped out at night. David bought a large tract of land in what is not Salem
                Twp. He was a good farmer, neighbor, and citizen, gaining the respect of all who knew him. His death occurred May 15, 1897.
                Both he and his faithful life companion were members of the Dunkard church, sometimes known as the German Baptist church.
                Peter Schanafelt, the paternal grandfather of the subject, was a native of Pennsylvania, who came to Ohio in an early day, where he
                farmed and spent the remainder of his life. The subject's mother was the daughter of James and Charity Orr, who emigrated to Ohio
                from Kentucky at an early day. They were framers and died in the Buckeye state....Samuel was 2 years of age when the family came
                to Marion Co, Illinois, and here he has constantly remained since that time...he had a farm of 240 acres, which includes a portion of
                the old home farm. He also owns another fine farm in Salem Twp. He is regarded as one of the leading farmers and stock raisers of
                Marion Co, keeping his land in excellent condition, reaping bounteous harvests from year to year by reason of his skillful
                management. His farms are well fenced and drained. He has an excellent dwelling and numerous outbuildings. He is an interesting
                conversationalist, having become well educated, attending in his boyhood days the common schools and later a select school in
                Salem, and later in life doing much home study. He was united in marriage in Dec 1878 to Anna Hershberger, the refined and affable
                daughter of Henry and Catharine (Snavely) Hershberger. She was born of a well known and influential family of Crawford Co,
                Ohio."

Notes for ANDREW SHANAFELT:
Source of information: BRINKERHOFF'S HISTORY OF MARION CO, ILLINOIS (1899) PG 498-501:
  Among the well known citizens of Marion Co who have finished their labors and gone to their reward, the name of Andrew
Shanafelt is deserving of especial notice. He was a pioneer himself and the son of a pioneer. He was one of the sterling yeomen,
whose labors and self-sacrifice, made possible the advanced state of civilization and enlightenment for which southern Illinois has
long been noted....his parents settled in Licking Co, Ohio, in a very early day, making the journey from their native state of
Pennsylvania by means of a sled and experiencing many hardships and suffering on the way. Peter Shanafelt purchased a tract of
heavily timbered land which by dint of hard work he finally succeeded in clearing and reducing to cultivation on which he died,
shortly after becoming situated so as to live comfortably. His wife, who survived him a number of years, and for some time prior to
her death, which occurred in Marion Co, Illinois, at the age of 77, made her home with her children.....both parents were of German
extraction....Andrew was reared on the home farm in Ohio, early learned by practical experience, the true meaning of hard work and
grew up strong and vigorous and well able to cope with the difficulties and discouragements which life had in store for him. After
remaining in his native county until 1847, he disposed of his holdings there and came to Marion Co, Illinois, where for some time he
labored as a farm hand, subsequently renting a farm near the village of Odin, Illinois. On March 22, 1849 he was united in marriage
with Katherine Johnson, of Licking
                                                                        64
Co, Ohio, and 2 years following that even purchased 40 acres of land near Odin, on which he lived and prospered until the summer of
1856, when he sold the place and bought 120 acres, which he made his home to the end of his days and on which his widow still
resides....died suddenly of heart failure

and in 1852 he returned to Michigan by way of the Isthmus of Panama. He went back to California again in 1860, but returned in six
weeks. Near close of 1863 Mr. Shanafelt again entered the Army, enlisting in Dec in the 79th New York Volunteers, serving until the

Wm. H., Corp'l, Co K. Exchanged Atlanta Sept 19, 1864." He was one of the luckier prisoners who were exchanged, some 15,000
prisoners died there during the 14 month period. Andersonville was led by a Confederate officer that was incompetent, who would not
allow the captured men to take care of the condition of poor sanitation. The improper and deplorable conditions were strictly enforced
by this commandant who must have had intense hatred of the North to force these men to live in such filth. This head officer was later
executed for his part in this real life horror that affected the lives of so many. Another member on the maternal line of this line died
there at Andersonville--an ancestor of Gary Shanafelt.

He was an engineer on a freight train as well.
Died at the age of 75 years, 5 months, and 15 days.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF BERRIEN AND CASS COUNTIES, MICH, 1893:
"William H. Shanafelt, a prosperous agriculturist residing on section 24, La Grange Twp, is well known throughout Cass Co as one of
it's enterprising citizens, energetic business men, and efficient farmers. Married Susan Bleecher. He was a native of Pickaway Co,
Ohio, born on the day before Christmas, 1824. A lad of eleven years when he came to Michigan, William H. born 1824, grew to
manhood amid the primeval scenes of this then undeveloped county. At the age of twenty-two, in 1847, he married Miss Susan
Bleacher, daughter of Daniel and Mary (Barr) Bleacher, all of whom were natives of Pennsylvania. Soon afterward he received $500
from his father, with which he purchased eighty acres, and to that property he added from time to time until his landed possessions
reached an aggregate of one hundred eighty acres, all lying in one body. Socially he is connected with the Masonic fraternity, having
been identified with it for a period of fifteen years, and being now a Master Mason. He and his estimable wife are active members of
the Methodist Episcopal Church and liberal contributors to it's support. In his political affiliations, he is a warm advocate of the
principles enunciated by the Republican party, and always give his ballot to the support of the candidates of the party of his choice.
The social position occupied by this family is one of considerable prominence in the community and they are highly regarded
wherever known. He is of German descent, and his paternal grandfather, who was born in Germany, was a valiant soldier in the
Revolutionary War, and was killed while in active service." (Mary's notes--this last mention of William's paternal grandfather being
killed in the Rev. War is incorrect.)

Notes for WILLIAM SCHOENFELT:
William attempted teaching, but found that he favored farming. In 1850, at age 25 William was the recipient of the original
homestead on Leatherwood Creek, in Clarion Co (formerly Armstrong Co), Penn. At that point his father moved into the City of
Clarion, Clarion Co, Penn, to pursue his gunsmithing. Nicholas had provided a college education for his other sons, and so deeded
the farm to William. William built a home he called "Sugar Grove", and added 362 acres of other land to his farm and the one his
father gave him, and remained there until his death, when the farm was passed on to other family members. In the 1950's some of
William's descendants, the Phillips family, still lived on the old farm. He was known for raising good stock, especially Shorthorn
cattle, and was registered in the AMERICAN SHORTHORN HERD BOOK, where it stated that his cattle were the best to be found in
the county, and for 15 years he carried that title amongst the stock growers of Ohio and Kentucky. He also raised sheep and horses.
He was deacon of the Baptist Church at Brinkerton for 40 years. In his politics he was a Republican, and for some years a Mason.
For at least 8 years he was a member of the State Board of Agriculture. He is recorded as being 5'10 1/2" tall, weighed 185 lbs, and
until his last year of life was in excellent health. He suffered a "Paralysis" just before his death.
                                                                        70
At the time of his death he was age 73 years, 5 months, and 21 days.
Source: BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA by BEERS, 1898, VOL II, pg 1611-1612.
He became a successful farmer and cattle breeder.

January 14, 1897 William's daughter Maggie wrote to Hannah T. (Smith) Shanafelt from Brinkerton, Penn, that her father had had a
stroke that left his left side paralyzed, but that he was walking. (*letter owned by family member.)

Notes for CATHERINE THOMAS:
Catherine's father, Rev Thomas E. Thomas, who was born in Glamorganshire, Wales, and was for many years the Pastor of Zion
Baptist Church. At the time of her death she was 53 years of age.
She had 14 children, 8 died in infancy, 6 lived and 5 had families.

109. REV. JOHN RANDOLPH6 SHANAFELT (NICHOLAS "THE GUNSMITH" SCHOENFELT5 JR., NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT4 SR., JOHANNES "JOHN"
SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born October 27, 1829 in McConnelstown,
Huntingdon Co, Pennsylvania, and died May 27, 1898 in Lawrence, Douglas Co, Kansas--age 69 years, 7 months. He married
HANNAH TERESSA "TESS" SMITH May 11, 1859 in Moreland, Lycoming Co, Pennsylvania, daughter of J OHN SMITH and RACHEL
TAGGART. She was born January 30, 1839 in Moreland Twp, Lycoming Co, Pennsylvania, and died October 02, 1920 in Lawrence,
Douglas Co, Kansas--age 81 yrs, 8 mos, 2 days.

Notes for REV. JOHN RANDOLPH SHANAFELT:
Although his ancestors were from the early German Reformed Church, Rev John R. Shanafelt chose to be a Baptist minister as his
vocation, and graduated from Bucknell University's Theological School. He and his brothers, who also were ministers, were often
referred to as the "Three Apostles: John, Andrew, & Thomas." Places he served in the ministry: Berwick, Pittston, Shomokin, &
Pittsburg, Penn. Also Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas. He taught school for several years previous to 1852, in the winter months, and
attended college in the summer months. Last assignment was in Lawrence, Kansas. His theological work was interrupted by duty
during the Civil War, service in an emergency Regiment mustered to defend Pennsylvania from General Lee and Stuart's cavalry.

He labored as a Baptist pastor for 12 years in Pennsylvania, his first position was at Berwick, Penn, where he married his wife, in
Moreland. When married to Hannah the ceremony was preformed by his brother, ordained Baptist Minister, Rev. Andrew Fuller
Shanafelt.

                                                                          71
Later ministries were at Pittston, Pittsburgh, and Shimokin, Pennsylvania. In 1870 he became pastor at the College Chapel at Pella,
Iowa. For about 12 years he was a pastor in Iowa and Nebraska, and St. Joseph, Missouri also. He migrated to Kansas in 1883,
ministering in Kansas City, Kansas until 1888. He settled and lived in Lawrence, Kansas, where he remained until his life ended. He
preached in the First Baptist Church of Lawrence.

November 1896 he was stricken down with paralysis, and until his death, he was unable to speak or write, though in full possession of
his mental powers. He died at his home in Lawrence. He was aged 69 years, and 7 months at the time of his death. Multiple strokes is
a medical heritage of the Shanafelt family.

He wrote a book called "The Slavery Question", printed in 1864, by c. Sherman Son & Co, Printers of Philadelphia. It is on file in the
Rare Book Collection of The Library of Congress, E449.S516; E 458, pg 54, Vol 3.

Burial: Shanafelt Plot, Oak Hill Cemetery, Lawrence, Douglas Co, Kansas

Notes for HANNAH TERESSA "TESS" SMITH:
She was a descendant of the Smith, Stout, and Simpson families, and related to the U. S. Presidents Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses
Simpson Grant, also a frontiersman Daniel Boone. She graduated from Moreland Baptist Seminary in 1858 at the age of 19.

John Simpson and Col George Smith were both soldiers of the American Revolutionary War. John Simpson was disowned by the
Quakers for signing the Oath of Allegiance to the United States, which meant pledging his support for military service. Thorough the
Simpson ancestry Hannah was a 2nd cousin to the General and President Ulysses Simpson Grant. Her grandmother Anne Simpson
Smith and Grant's grandfather, John Simpson, were sister and brother. Col. Geroge Smith's grandmother was Sarah Stout who was
married to Andrew Smith Jr., Sarah was granddaughter of Penelope (Prince) Stout, a very first settler of New Jersey, who came to
America when New York was New Amsterdam, under the Dutch. Penelope and her first husband sailed to America in 1641, and were
shipwrecked on the New Jersey shore. Because they were in unfriendly Indian territory the rest of the passengers left her husband
(Prince) who was very ill, and his young wife Penelope stayed with him, while they went to New Amsterdam promising to send back
help. While waiting Penelope and her husband were discovered and attacked by Indians and left for dead. Prince was killed, but
Penelope survived, and was later nursed back to health by friendly Indians, and eventually taken back to her friends in New
Amsterdam. She bore the mutilation on her body and testimony to her ordeal until her death at a very old age. She then married
Richard Stout soon after arriving in New Amsterdam. Richard and Penelope made friends with the Indians that took care of her, and
they became the very first settlers of New Jersey due to this friendship. Through the Stout's, Hannah was a distant cousin to Abraham
Lincoln, and Daniel Boone.

Apparently, about the time that Hannah's twins died, her sister, Angeline Smith, had a son out of wedlock. Hannah took him in,
named him John Elmer Shanafelt, and raised him as her own. This story was not told in the family until a much later date in time.

Children of REV. SHANAFELT and HANNAH SMITH are:
          i.   WILLIAM FULLER7 SHANAFELT, b. June 06, 1860, Berwick, Columbia Co, Pennsylvania; d. December 31, 1913, Lawrence,
               Douglas Co, Kansas--at sister Ella's home; m. EMMA EFFIE WELSH, September 05, 1888, Lawrence, Douglas Co, Kansas; b.
               September 03, 1866, Darlington, Beaver Co, Pennsylvania; d. August 17, 1950, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co, California.

               Notes for WILLIAM FULLER SHANAFELT:
               William and his wife Emma were both born in Pennsylvania, but met in Lawrence, Kansas, where both of their families were settlers
               in the 1880's. She was Methodist-Episcopal by faith, and later Unitarian. William's father was of German Reformed (Baptist) faith,
               and raised his children in that church. Because of these differences of faith it became a matter of the individual person as to their
               church attendance, later in life. William was fond of the outdoors, and that was what took him "out west" to Oregon.

               He had a photography business with Kate Shanafelt's husband, ? Beatty. It was called "Beatty and Shanafelt", photographers of
               Sigourney, Iowa. William Fuller Shanafelt did this before he married Emma Welsh in Kansas, and then moving to Portland, Oregon.
               His career as a photographer is documented in the book, "EARLY OREGON PHOTOGRAPHERS". 52,000 of his photographers
               glass plates are on file at the University of Oregon Special Collections archive, and are considered to be of the finest quality for the
               time, and of the most historic interest concerning the people, places, and early life in Oregon. His plates, along with his detailed
               journals of events, have been invaluable in researching in Oregon.

               The photograph studios in Oregon were in Portland, Oregon, also Arlington up the Columbia River, and then Cottage Grove in the
               southern part of the Williamette Valley. He often took his young son William Adrian to the Cayuse and Nez Perce tribe's teepee's
               nearby Arlington on the Columbia River. He understood the Indian language and was their agent in ordering their supplies from the
               Arlington merchants. He took many photos of Indians.

                                                                         72
      He suffered from multiple strokes, as his father before him did.

      Notes for JOHN ELMER SHANAFELT:
      John actually was an illegitimate chid of Angeline Smith, sister of Hannah Smith Shanafelt. Angeline discovered she was pregnant
      after her intended husband went off to the Civil War, and was killed. She went off to her brother Dahl Smith's home in Wilkes-Barre,
      Penn, and had her child there. When her sister Hannah's twins died, in 1862, about the time John was born, Angeline gave her son to
      her to raise as her own. John's "Aunt" Angeline Smith financed his education, and he graduated from the University of Kansas, the
      only "son" of Rev. John and Hannah (Smith) Shanafelt to graduate from college. This "secret" was kept from everyone until most
      were gone, and then it didn't matter if the story was told, according to Gertrude Shanafelt, 2nd wife of his "brother" Richard Leroy
      "Dick" Shanafelt, as told her by Hannah Shanafelt, wife of Rev John. When Angeline died a tintype was found in her possession, of
      an unknown soldier, in Civil War uniform.

      His father, Rev John R. Shanafelt, stated in a letter to a family member that John went to Oklahoma Territory in 1894, and joined the
      land rush with 60,000 others, for a homestead. " He succeeded in getting a good one without contest. Rode 30 miles in just two hours
      with this great army of competitors. Had a good though Texas pony. Many blooded horses from Kentucky gave out and lagged
      behind. He has succeeded all right up to date....His brother Ray is at present down with John. Has been helping him improve his
      claim. John is in the Express Company's office in Perry, Oklahoma, most of the time. Previous to the great race John was in the
      Wells Fargo office on Main St, Kansas City, Missouri, by virtue of his good penmanship and bookkeeping knowledge." (His
      wedding announcement stated that he would be living in Perry, Oklahoma)

      OBIT: found in the Bonner Springs, Kansas CHIEFTAIN, Feb 22, 1923

      He was also Editor of "The Pythian Times" newspaper in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and owned a bookstore as well. He had a
      separate room in his bookstore to be used as the first library in town.
      He and Josephine were divorced in 1913, and he remarried Emma Stutz.

        Notes for RICHARD LEROY "DICK" SHANAFELT:
        He enlisted July 1, 1898 in the Rough Riders, First Regiment of US Volunteer Cavalry, Troop D, with Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt,
        during the Spanish-American War. Their great battle of San Juan Hill, in Cuba, was dismounted, not on horseback, as the terrain was
        too steep for horses. With the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Oklahoma gave a call for cavalry, and enough answered that a
        full regiment could have been manned, but only 80 men were mustered initially, and Dick was one of those. Later he was invited to
        the White House by his friend, President "Teddy" Roosevelt, to sit in his Presidential chair and have a special photo of the 2 of them
        in uniform. He contracted "yellow fever" while in Cuba and spent a year convalescing in New York City with the DeGrove family.
        After about a year back at home after his discharge, he re-enlisted and went to the Philippine's, where he engaged in the War with
        "The Insurgents", and spent some of his last military years up through 1904 in the Presidio in San Francisco.

        Dick and wife Gertrude often had important personages of the day visiting them in their Oklahoma and Lawrence, Kansas, homes.
        Frank Knox, and several Chicago gangsters had hideaways near them in Oklahoma. He was a colorful person, and lived his life in
        the same manner.

        OBIT
        Kansas City Times: Sat, Nov 11, 1967--Veteran of Teddy's Rough Riders Dies. Lawrence, Kansas. "Dick" Shanafelt, 88, one of the
        last of the Rough Riders, who served with Teddy Roosevelt in the Spanish-American war, died yesterday at Wadsworth Veterans
        Hospital. Shanafelt, who fought at San Juan Hill in Cuba said he knew of only 4 other members of the Rough Riders still living.
        Theodore Roosevelt, resigned as assistant secretary of the Nave, and organized the First Volunteer Cavalry Regiment immediately
        after the U. S. declared war on Spain in April, 1898. Shanafelt was a member of Troop D of the Rough Riders. He rejoined the
        Army after the war and served in the Philipine Islands. In later years he served in the Bureau of Indian Affairs at Muskogee,
        Oklahoma. After 28 years in the bureau he retired and came with his wife to live here. He was born in Maxon, Nebraska in 1879.
        He contracted the "Yellow Fever" and spent a year convalescing in New York City with the DeGrove family. After being back home
        for one year, he re enlisted and went to the Philippine's in the war with "The Insurgents."

        Legally changed his name to "Dick" in 1915.

111. REV. THOMAS MILES6 SHANAFELT (NICHOLAS "THE GUNSMITH" SCHOENFELT5 JR., NICHOLAS SCHOENFELT4 SR., JOHANNES "JOHN"
SCHOENFELT3 JR., JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born April 30, 1840 in Porter Twp, Clarion

daughter of THOMAS GILDAY and ELIZABETH UPDEGRAFF. She was born May 29, 1846 in Jersey Shore, Lycoming Co, Pennsylvania.

Notes for REV. THOMAS MILES SHANAFELT:
The flyleaf of the family Bible Thomas Miles had, and was passed on to Laurel Shanafelt Powell, uses many various spellings of the
family name: Shinefelt, Shinnefelt, Shennefelt, and Shanafelt. The first date written in those pages was that of the birth of "Nicholas
Jr. born February 4th, AD 1799". The last dates were the deaths of the parents--Keziah and Nicholas, then their sons: Andrew, John,
William, William's wife Catherine, and William and Catherine's son Wm. Lewis, but no entry for the death of their son Thomas. It
was written in the handwriting of Nicholas Jr. in the early entries, some were entered probably by his wife Keziah, whose death was in
1867, it was probably the Bible that was given to Nicholas & Keziah's son Thomas to keep, entries were subsequently made by him,
and his death was in
1909, and was not entered.


                                                                         75
Thomas graduated from Bucknell University's Theological School, ministered in Huron, South Dakota, as a Missionary, the majority
of his life. At one time he was chaplain to the National Grand Army of the Republic (Union Army), while serving in the Civil War for
2 years. He had bad lungs, and was actually turned down for military service, but served in the Pennsylvania Bucktail Regt, and was
commissioned as First Lieutenant of the company. Thomas received a concussion and was partially deaf for the rest of his lifetime, at
Carlisle, Penn, June 30, 1863, when his Regt engaged Stuart's Cavalry Corps. He served in a Pennsylvania Regiment mustered to
defend against Gen Lee, Ewell, and Stuart's Cavalry. He was active in ministerial and charitable endeavors, and was good friends
with Gov. Herreid, who had an oil painting of Rev. Thomas hung in the state capitol for years. He was ordained at Muncy, Penn, in
1864.

He published various denominational works, and a book called, "BAPTIST HISTORY OF SOUTH DAKOTA", "A STATISTICAL
BAPTIST HISTORY OF MICHIGAN.", "THE BAPTIST HISTORY OF NORTH DAKOTA, 1879-1904", "FIFTY YEARS OF
BAPTIST GROWTH AND PROGRESS IN MICHIGAN", "A DEFENSE OF CHRISTIAN BAPTISM", AND "BAPTISM BELIEF
AND PRACTICE WITH RESPECT TO THE LORD'S SUPPER".

               another article:
               Jake Shoenefield Shot: The foreman of the Western Salt Works in a Critical condition. At 4 O'Clock this evening word was received
               by telephone of the shooting of J. Shoenefield, foreman of the Western Salt Plant by J. Vi. Dicks, generally known as Diamond Dick.
               Mr. Shoenefield was shot in the head and is in a very critical condition. No reason for the shooting is known. Dicks had been
               working full time, and there had been no trouble between the men so far as known. Dicks was arrested at once. He was drunk, when
               he did the shooting.

               (apparently Mr. Dicks was drunk, threatened many people with his gun. He went home, beat up his wife, who took refuge at the
               Western Salt Works, and then Mr. Dicks shot Jacob Shenefield in the head. He was tried and it was found that he "did willfully,
               deliberately, and premeditatedly, and with malice aforethought, on the 22nd day of April, 1899, shoot with a shot gun and murder and
               kill Jacob Shoenefield.)

                Notes for WESLEY HIRAM SHENEFIELD:
                He worked in a grist mill at Kiger, also ran a sawmill and thrashing machine. Moved to Salem Center just prior to 1900. Worked for

                                                                        84
                Waldo Fogg at that time in 1900. Then took a lease on some land, the Clara Belle Strong place, just 2 miles east of Wilksville. He
                built a log house, cut timber, cleared the land, raised corn, wheat, and then grass. Also raised ponies and sheep. About 1906 or 1908
                he had rheumatism which forced him to stop his working, and his sons Ray and Clare/Clair had to do the work in his place.
                Clair/Clare related that the work was very hard on them, but it was the only way to make a living and put food on the table.

                A quote from Charles: "We had a home I will never forget. Plenty to eat. Mom worked so hard to keep us fed and she made shirts
                and dresses. She also baked bread and we nearly always had cookies in the stone jar. Dad butchered two or three hogs, curd and
                hickory smoked it. He raised cane for sorghum and buckwheat to grind. We tapped sugar trees in the spring and made Maple Syrup.
                Biscuit, maple syrup, and smoked meat! Mom would come to the back porch and yell, "Supper is ready!" What a treat for two
                hungry boys! A memory I will never forget. We worked hard, cut lots of hay from the meadows that was already there. We raised
                lots of sheep and Shetland ponies, which Ray and I used to catch and break them to ride."

       Notes for MONROE PORTER SHENEFELT:
       Moved from Carroll Co, Illinois with his parents, the 5th child of 13. In the spring of 1865, when 4 years of age, he moved to Kansas
       in a covered wagon with his family. They were pioneer settlers in Bourbon Co, Kansas. He moved with his parents when they traded
       their Kansas farm for one in Missouri. When he reached manhood he returned to Illinois where he met his wife, and married. They
       farmed in Illinois for about 10 years, and then in the spring of 1892, sold their Illinois properties, and went to Montana. That was in
       March, and in the course of the same year they settled in the Flathead Valley, 5 miles south of Columbia Falls, purchasing a ranch.
       During the panic of 1893-94 they moved to the upper end of what is still Flathead County where they filed on 160 acres in what is
       now Lincoln Co. He and Mr. Peltier frequently hauled freight goods in and out of Tobacco Valley, and also from Flathead Valley.
       They often camped at night, sleeping on the ground, in two feet of snow, with the thermometer at thirty degrees. The tradition
       handed down by family members is that they would prepare their breakfast in the morning by cutting their bread and meat with an
       axe.

       Affectionately called "Uncle Roe" by his nieces and nephews.

       Notes for JOHN MICHAEL SHENEFELT:
       Married and had first 3 children in Redfield, Kansas. A brother, Roe, convinced them to sell out and move to Tobacco Valley in NW
       Montana, Hayden's Landing. They arrived March 3, 1904. They found a homestead for sale at Black Lake and bought it. After a
       few years of farming they sold that farm, but crop failures and bad times caused those people to get behind on their mortgage
       payments. John spent the rest of his life trying to meet the payments. Ironically, during this time, Roe was one of the wealthiest men
       in the area, and John was ill with heart problems--called Tobacco Heart.

       Notes for SARAH VIRGINIA "JENNIE" TROY:
       Jennie didn't care for Montana when she first arrived. She wrote lyrics to fit the song Beulah Land describing her emotions. She
       became very ill a year or 2 before Blythe was born. She was bedfast for a year and during this illness her spine developed into a
       severe curvature. She was semi-invalid after that, and provided baked goods and sewing as a means of her support. A month before
       she passed away she was visited by her sisters Allie Davis and Ida Turner, from Areadia, Kansas.

 ii. ORLANDO DAVID SHANEYFELT, b. July 14, 1861, Randolph Co, Indiana; d. July 08, 1899, Hartselle, Morgan Co, Alabama; m.
     SARAH JANE HOKE, March 15, 1881, Ohio; b. September 23, 1859, Dayton, Ohio; d. September 01, 1950, Hartselle, Morgan Co,
     Alabama.

       Notes for ORLANDO DAVID SHANEYFELT:
       At the age of 19 he went to Ohio, where his mother's parents lived. That was where he met his future wife, Sarah Jane Hoke/Holk,
       and married her. In 1882 Orlando and his wife Sarah traveled by wagon from Ohio to Alabama in a wagon train, taking 6 months to
       get back to Leesdale, Alabama. He became a foreman at the Falkville Sawmill, one mile south of Leesdale, Morgan Co, Alabama.
       On July 9, 1899, he died of a" mysterious illness", at the age of 38. When he died he left Sarah with 5 young children to raise. In
       1906 Sarah moved southwest to Hartsell, Alabama where she purchased 40 acres of land. She and her family joined the Lebanon
       Baptist Church, Falkville, Alabama. She lived 51 more years after the death of her husband, never remarrying.


       A great grandson, Mary Shaneyfelt, gives their wedding date as February 13, 1881, Ohio.

       Notes for SARAH JANE HOKE:
       Her last name has been spelled Hoke, as well as Holk, at various times.
       Sarah and her husband Orlando were charter members of the Cedar Creek Free Will Baptist Church in 1897. After the death of her
       husband she bought 40 acres of land from Mr. Henry Barkley, and moved fro Leesdale, Alabama, to South West of Hartselle,
       Alabama. She raised her children there all by herself and lived to the age of 91, never remarrying. She and her family joined
       Lebanon Baptist Church after their move, and she is buried in the church cemetery at Lebanon church, next to her son Herbert Lee
       Shaneyfelt.

       Sarah's favorite recipe:
       Shoo Fly Pie:
       1 cup brown sugar
       2 tabs butter
       2 egg yolks beaten

       2 egg whites beaten
       1 cup raisins
       Cook raisins for 10 minutes, or until water has cooked down, then cool. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolk, and raisins, fold in
       egg whites, and pour into pie shell. Bake slow in an oven preheated to 350
       degrees.

151. HENRY MILLER6 SHANEYFELT (JOHN GEORGE SHENIFELT5 SR., GEORGE MICHAEL4 SHENEFELT, FREDERICK SCHOENFELD3 SR.,
JOHANN HANS HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born October 14, 1834 in Pennsylvania (or Butler Co, Ohio,
according to family), and died July 14, 1919 in Ridgeville, Randolph Co, Indiana. He married (1) E LIZABETH ELEY August 11, 1859
in Jay Co, Indiana, daughter of M ARTIN ELEY and SARAH. She was born April 13, 1839 in Jay Co, Indiana, and died November 04,
1886 in Pike Twp, Jay Co, Indiana. He married (2) D ELILAH JANE EVILSIZER March 31, 1897 in Jay Co, Indiana, daughter of A LLEN
EVILSIZER and ABIGAIL CAVENDER. She was born February 24, 1855 in Miami Co, Ohio, and died August 09, 1926 in Richland, Jay
Co, Indiana.

Notes for HENRY MILLER SHANEYFELT:
Some researchers give his birthplace as Pennsylvania, and others Butler Co, Ohio. Family tradition has it that it was Butler Co, Ohio,
as given in Henry's obituary, but the census conflicts that. Henry was married twice, first to Elizabeth Eley, and then to Delilah
Evilsizer. Henry was Delilah's 3rd husband, and then she married again after Henry died.

Obituary about July 14, 1919, Ridgeville, Indiana:
Henry Shaneyfelt (1834-1919), son of George and Nancy Shaneyfelt, born in Butler Co, Ohio, departed this life at his home near
Ridgeville, age 84 years, and 9 months. He came with his parents from Butler Co, Ohio, when quite young, and settled on a farm near
New Pittsburg. He was married to Elizabeth Eley, Aug 11, 1859. To this union was born 12 children, the mother and four children
having already preceded the father in death. He was stricken with paralysis on July 1st, and soon as his family reached his bedside, he
requested that no physician be called. He soon lapsed into unconsciousness and at different times he was heard to call on God as he
slowly passed away. As one prepared for a journey, he talked of going away and begged God to relieve him of his suffering. Another
home is made sad and desolate and hearts sad because Death's ever-present and unrelenting had has removed a beloved father and
husband. The places he once occupied are vacant. A familiar voice is stilled. He has passed into the great beyond. Although he
never attended church regularly, he was known by the write to spend many hours with the family Bible before him, and many of his
favorite chapters are found marked. He was a member of the Reformed Church at New Pittsburg. AS the evening shadows were
gathering on July 14th, he peacefully fell asleep to wake no more. He is survived by the following children--Andrew, Martin, and
Clem of New Pittsburg; Christina and David of Winchester; Charles of Springfield, Ohio; Edward of Tipp City, Ohio; Sarah Miller of
Los Angeles, California. HE re-married Delilah J. (Funk) Walker March 31, 1897, who with 4 step-children survive; they are--Carey
Walker of Ridgeville; Ervin Walker of New Pittsburg; Minnie Spencer of Dunkirk; and Ota Shaneyfelt. 44 grandchildren, 26 great
grandchildren. Funeral at Boundary Church, by Rev J. W. Bechtel, and body laid to rest in the Boundary Cemetery. (2 different
spellings of Boundary/Boundary)

Notes for DELILAH JANE EVILSIZER:
Also shown as Delilah J. Funk-Walker, by Nilah Booth, another researcher. Other researchers have said she was Delilah Jane

She was married 4 times:
1) Carry Allen Walker Sr.
2) Christian Funk
3) Henry Miller Shaneyfelt
4) Elias Howell

Delilah farmed out all of her children after her husband Cary Walker died. She did take in her grandchild to raise until she became too
ill to care for her any more. The Walker children were raised by the children of Cary Walker from his first marriage, and they lived
close by. She

156. WILLIAM HENRY6 SHANEYFELT (MICHAEL H.5, GEORGE MICHAEL4 SHENEFELT, FREDERICK SCHOENFELD3 SR., JOHANN HANS
HEINRICH2 SCHOENFELD, JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born April 04, 1837 in Harrisburg, Dauphin Co, Pennsylvania, and died May
31, 1922 in Scott, Van Wert Co, Ohio--at Reiba's home in Scott. He met (1) ? DRURRY Bet. 1855 - 1856 in Jay Co, Indiana. He

                                                                        108
married (2) ELISABETH (ELIZABETH) LOVEALL February 17, 1861 in Jay Co, Indiana, daughter of H ENRY LOVEALL and REBECCA
WALL. She was born February 14, 1845 in Jay Co., Indiana, and died June 17, 1881 in Convoy, Van Wert Co, Ohio--39 years, 7
months, and 27 days. He married (3) M ARY "POLLY" ELIZABETH MCGILL October 11, 1886 in Van Wert Co, Ohio, daughter of
THOMAS MCGILL and REBECCA BAXTER. She was born April 25, 1842 in Convoy, Van Wert Co, Ohio, and died April 22, 1919 in
Fort Wayne, Allen Co, Indiana.

Notes for WILLIAM HENRY SHANEYFELT:
   William was born April 4, 1837, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He comes from a long line of German immigrants to this country in
the early 1700's. The name was originally Schoenfeld, and with each successive mutilation of the name, in an attempt to Anglicize it,
it changed. I have seen more than 61 different spellings of this name for people in the same family. It makes research very
complicated and confusing. It seems though that the branch of the family William came from spelled their name Shaneyfelt or
Shanyfelt most of the time.
    His family moved from the area around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to Pike Twp, Jay Co, Indiana after the birth of his sister
Elizabeth was born in 1844 . William's Uncle, John George Shenifelt, known as George, had already moved his family to Randolph
Co, arriving after 1830. It appears through the ensuing years that William's father Michael, and his uncle George, moved frequently as
the names of the counties change. That was not necessarily so as the county lines kept changing as new counties were formed from
old ones. George can be found in the 1840 census of Randolph Co, Indiana, but William's father Michael didn't show up until the
1850 census for Jay Co. So Michael's move took place between 1844 and 1850.
   In 1856, between the 1850 census and the 1860 census William had a child with a woman by the name of ? Drurry. There are no
records that prove that they ever married, or divorced, in Jay Co. They had a son together by the name of Henry H. Shaneyfelt, who
was born in 1856. This made Henry a 1/2 brother to the rest of William's children by Elisabeth Loveall. He first appears in the 1870
census with William as the oldest child of the family. For unknown reasons he was sent to his father, and raised by him sometime
between the marriage to Elisabeth in 1861and the 1870 census, perhaps after William returned from the Army, in 1863. I have found
no records of the Drurry family in Jay Co, Indiana--they apparently were not there long, and moved on after Henry was given to his
father.
   Also living in Jay Co, Pike Twp, Indiana, in dwelling 104, family 104, in 1850, was the family of Henry Loveall. In that census
Michael H. Shanefelt and family lived right next door in dwelling 106, family 106.
In 1850 William was age 12 and his future wife Elisabeth was only 8. In the 1860 Pike Twp, Jay Co, Indiana Census, both families
were still living side by side. William was listed as 23, while Elisabeth was 16. Elisabeth and William married February 17, 1861,
about 6 months after the census was taken, making Elisabeth 17, and William 24. Elisabeth's tombstone gives her death date as
February 14, 1845, which would have made her 16 when she married, so there are some conflicts in the dates.
   William and Elisabeth married in Feb 17, of 1861. The Civil War was brewing at the time, and so in the following year, in 1862,
William and his brother in law Allen Loveall, joined the Union Army. William's military records are in the National Archives, in
Washington, D.C., and also on file in the State Library of Indiana. His name is spelled 2 ways on his enlistment papers, adding to the
confusion of the spelling of German names.
   William became increasingly lonely, missed his home, and family, and was disgruntled by the atrocities he saw committed by
officers against their own men. He found the practice of abusing deserters by tying hands behind their back, and then hobbling their
feet, and pulling them into a crouched position, to be against what he thought was right. This, added to a sharpened bayonet placed
between the men's legs, so that they were cut when they fell, disgusted him. He found that his wife had become "ill" and was
concerned for her, which only added to his frustration. On top of all of this he became sick himself with the "dreaded disease--
measles." He wrote Elisabeth a letter and poems from Kentucky, while in an encampment, that are in my possession. They are as
follows:

Poem, written by William H. Shaneyfelt, November 6, 1862, to his wife Elisabeth:
I am leaving thee in sorrow Lib, I am leaving thee in tears.
It may be for a long time Lib, perhaps for many years.
But tis now time to part my dearest, then linger here in pain, to weep O'r joys once were shining.
I'm leaving thee, but weep not Lib, I'll come back yet to thee.
And bring some hope and comfort Lib, to one so dear to me.
I'm thinking on the past dear Lib, thy locks were bright as gold.
Thy smile was soft, but now dear Lib, our hearts seem growing old.
Yet, tis not time has stole the blossoms from off thy cheek so fair.
Twas winter come too soon upon us, and chilled the flowers there.
I'm leaving thee but weep not Lib, for when I've passed you see.
I'll better love and comfort Lib, and bring them back to thee.
I'm leaving thee in sorrow Lib, perhaps for many years.
I'm leaving thee in sorrow Lib, perhaps for many years.
November gives a few verses,
William Shaneyfelt to Elisabeth Shaneyfelt

Letter, written by William H. Shaneyfelt, November 25, 1862, to his wife Elisabeth (wording and spelling kept the same):
                                                                  109
Cattlettsburgh, Ky, Nov. 25th, 1862
In Hospital
Dear Wife,
 I embrace a few moments to write to you with the hope they may speedily reach you and find you all in good health. As for myself I
have been in the hospital for about a week. I have been sick with the measles. I had them very hard, but am now getting some better,
and if nothing happens (to) me I will be able to be up in a few days.
  There are quite a number of our Regt. sick with the same disease. Last night one man died in the hospital. He had the measles and
did not take care of himself and paid the penalty therof with his life. He will be sent home for burial. I think he lived somewhere in
Randolph County, Indiana. I do not know his name.
 We are still here at Catlettsburgh, Kentucky, on the Ohio and Big Sandy Rivers. Our Regt. is on the other side of the Sandy in
Virginia about half a mile distant from here. It is impossible to state how long we will remain here or where we will be taken when
we leave. The weather is getting quite cool here during the night, though not as cold as where you live, for it is considerably farther
south. I would prefer to move still further in a Southern direction during the winter as it would be more pleasant and agreeable, and I
also think it would be healthier during the winter months. But wherever we are ordered we must go.
  I should like very much to see you and all of my relations, as you may know, but I cannot tell you how soon that pleasure will be
granted or how long withheld from me. As soon, however, as there is an opportunity, you may rest assured that I will be at home as
quickly as possible.
  I nearly forgot to state that Benj. Doty has also been very sick with the measles. He too is getting better. A. Loveall (this is
Elisabeth's brother Allen) is well at present and so are about all the rest of the boys from around there. John Clapp and John Ridenour
are here. They came yesterday afternoon, and I think purpose leaving on Wednesday for home. I will send this letter with them, to
you.
  I do not hear of there being any Rebels near this place. So, I have no fears of an attack at present. As there is nothing of material
interest transpiring here I will close my present letter, hoping soon to hear from you. So for the present--

Farewell from your husband,
William Shaneyfelt

PS: Direct to Cattlettsburgh, Ky, Boyd Co.

  It was said by his daughter Clara that around December of 1862 William had an experience that pushed him over the edge. He had a
friendly encounter with Confederate soldiers and learned that they were men, much like himself, with families back home. With this
thought in mind for some weeks, he deserted from the Union Army on January 3, 1863, and returned home. His brother in law, Allen
Loveall, also deserted at the same time. Below are the papers sent to me by the State Archivist of the Indiana State Library:
**
Adjutant General's Office, Indianapolis
This certifies that the official records of which I am the lawful custodian, on file, in this office, shows that WILLIAM SHANEFELT
joined for duty and was enrolled as a PRIVATE of COMPANY E, 84th REGIMENT, INDIANA VOLUNTEERS. Enlisted at
DEERFIELD, INDIANA on AUGUST 8th, 1862, by CAPTAIN MILLER, and that he was duly mustered into the military service of
the United States at CAMP WAYNE, INDIANA on SEPTEMBER 3, 1862, for the term of THREE YEARS, by CAPTAIN
FARQUHAR.

AGE: 24       HEIGHT: 5'10"                        *Name also appears as SHANEYFELT
EYES: dark    COMPLEXION: dark
HAIR: dark     NATIVITY(birth place): Pennsylvania

This certificate is given as official evidence of enlistment, service, and desertion, of William SHANEFELT, of Company E, 84th
REGIMENT, INDIANA VOLUNTEERS.
**
  After his desertion in 1863 he returned to Jay Co, Indiana. He worked as a lumberman, and as a teamster, clearing land for roads.
His daughter Clara used to tell about how the family had to be on the lookout for bounty hunters. The use of red flannel underwear
hung out a window, or on the clothesline, was an indication that William should not return home until an all clear sign was given.
Quilts were sometimes used to indicate whether it was safe to come home or not. By the 1870 census William had moved out of Jay
Co, Indiana, with his wife and children, and was in Ohio. His last child to be born in Indiana was Clara, born 1868. It is unknown
where this family was in 1870 as they have not been located, but it was Ohio, because the very next child, John W. Shaneyfelt, was
born there, as were Reiba Jane, and Della. It is my belief that the family was in Clay Twp, Ottawa Co, Ohio, and that is probably
where John W. was born. In 1875 William Shanyfelt purchased 40 acres of land in Clay Twp, Ottawa Co, Ohio Section 6, signing 2
promissory notes for the land at Millbury in Dec of 1874--one for $100.00, and one for $200.00, and to secure payment, he made a
mortgage deed. He did not make the payments, and the deed became absolute. This information comes from the un-numbered
Common Pleas Court cases of Ottawa Co, Ohio. In 1876 Reiba Jane was born in Wood Co, Ohio, according to her marriage license,
and then in May of 1878 Delphinia was born in Van Wert Co, Ohio. In 1880 William and his family were back in the Clay Twp,
Ottawa Co, Ohio, census. By 1881 they were back in Van Wert Co, Ohio, where Elisabeth died June 17 of that year.
                                                                 110
***********
UNNUMBERED COURT CASES for OTTAWA CO COURT OF COMMON PLEAS
Plaintiff, Charles Gable
Defendants: William Shaenfeldt, Jehrel Fair, Lamon Harkness, Amos Woodward
Description: In Marcy, 1875, Shanyfelt delivered a mortgage deed to Fair for forty acres of land in Clay Twp, in Sec 6 (description
given) together with appurtenances thereon. Fair assigned the mortgage to plaintiff plus notes. Shanyfelt had signed two promissory
notes to Fair at Millbury in December, 1874--one for $100, and the other for $200, and the mortgage deed was made to secure
payment. No payment was made and the deed has become absolute. Other defendants claim to have some lien on the premises.
Harkness and Woodward answer that in October 1871 they owned eighty acres in Sec 6, they sold it to Osborn, who delivered nine
promissory notes, $222 each, and Osborn signed a mortgage deed to them. No payment was made. The above forty acres is included.
They claim first lien on the land. #782, as copied from the Hardesty Atlas, published 1875, Ottawa Co.

*************
  In 1881 Elisabeth died from an undisclosed ailment, near Convoy, Van Wert, Ohio, at the young age of 39 years, 7 months, and 27
days. She was laid to rest in the Sugar Ridge Cemetery, sometimes called by the name Richey Cemetery by family. When Elisabeth
died William was left with 7 children to raise by himself. He gave the responsibility of running the household to his oldest Daughter,
Clara. She took over the responsibilities of seeing to the cooking, cleaning, mending, hauling of water and wood, and so forth, which
was not always appreciated by her older brothers, who considered her bossy. She used to tell of the time she got into an argument
over an axe, and her brother Tom won. As they argued and fought over the axe the tip of Clara's middle finger, on her left hand, was
cut off, leaving it as short as the index and ring finger were. She always said she should have known better than to pick a fight with
someone bigger than she was. She was only 4' 9" tall, and her brother's were taller, but she was feisty and determined to win.
  William attempted to find someone to fill his emptiness. He married again to Mary E. McGill October 11, 1886, but that marriage
ended in divorce after only about a 7 month duration. The very next spring Mary placed an article in the local newspaper saying that
she intended to divorce William, and giving him notice of her intent. Mary had been married several times herself, first to a man
named James H. Channel, and then to a man named William S. Brown. William's fourth wife's name is Unknown. It is unknown
where he lived with this last wife (Lester Mitchell said they lived in Midland, Michigan, but that has never been proven). This
marriage ended in divorce as well. (It is really an uncertainty whether the unknown wife was William's #3 or #4 marriage. If indeed
William lived in Midland, Michigan, and his son Thomas Benton was in school there as his grandson Paul Shaneyfelt states, then this
unknown wife was actually his 3rd wife, and Mary McGill the 4th. I have not been able to find the existence of this marriage, or the
woman's name, so until I do, this will continue to be a mystery.) There is much confusion in the family because of these various
marriages.
  May 31, 1922, William died in Scott, Van Wert Co, Ohio, at his daughter Reiba's home. He was laid to rest by Elisabeth's side in
the Richey (Sugar Ridge) Cemetery at Convoy, Ohio, 4 miles North, 1 mile East of Convoy, Ohio, at a church along the old Ridge
Rd. I believe William to have been a very literate and intelligent man. It is expressed so in his writing seen above, and in other
documents I have in my possession. His tenderness and sensitivity towards his wife are evident. And, his loss when she died was
overwhelming. He floated through the rest of his life looking for the happiness that he had lost. I have a photo of him sitting on the
steps of an ice cream shop shortly before he died--he looked haggard and worn, and in need of a good long rest. He lived to be 85
years of age, uncommonly short for most Shaneyfelt people, who lived long into their 90's and above.

OBITUARY: THE TWICE-A-WEEK BULLETIN (Van Wert Co, Ohio--June 2, 1922):
Mrs. J. W. Mitchell of Blaine St was called to Scott Wednesday by the death of her father, William Shanefeldt, of Portland, Indiana,
who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. M. Hanna. He was eighty-six years of age.

Notes for ? DRURRY:
No marriage can be found for William and ? Drurry, so I am assuming that William was not married to her when their son Henry was

born. There is no marriage given in Jay Co, Indiana, except the one to Elisabeth Loveall.

Notes for ELISABETH (ELIZABETH) LOVEALL:
I have 2 conflicting death dates for Elisabeth. One says June 17, 1884. The other is January 14, 1884.
On her tombstone it says: Elisabeth Shaneyfelt, died June 17, 1881, age 39yr., 7mo, 22 da

Notes for MARY "POLLY" ELIZABETH MCGILL:
June 9, 1870, Mary McGill married James H. Channel in Van Wert, Van Wert Co, Ohio. James died March 15, 1873, leaving Mary a
widow with a small child by the name of Lillian Jane Channel. She remained a widow until after the 1880 census.

1880 CENSUS, VAN WERT CO, OHIO
Lillian and mother Mary Elizabeth were in the census, living near Mary's parents. Her father had bought 100 acres of land near
Middlebury, Ohio. ( Also in the same area there is a William S. Brown living with Thomas' son, the John McGill family. William is
37 years old, and a wagon maker. He was born in Ohio, about 1843. His father b Virginia and his mother b Illinois. William and
Mary Eizabeth had a daughter Lovona Mae Brown. 1900 census for Franklin Co, Ohio, there is a Wm Brown, b 1843, that has a sister
Lavina.

August 18, 1880 Mary married a second time to William S. Brown, who was a wagon maker mentioned in the 1880 Van Wert Co
census, and lived nearby. On May 26, 1886, Mary filed for divorce from William S. Brown, him having been "willfully absent for
no reason for over 3 years, without any cause or justification." She asked for custody of their child Lovona Mae Brown, age 4. This
paperwork can be located at the Clerk of Common Pleas in Van Wert, Van Wert Co, Ohio.

VAN WERT COUNTY MARRIAGE BOOK 7 (transcription from records), pg 15
William Shanyfelt and Mary McGill, married Oct 11, 1886, by C.P. Richey, Justice of the Peace

October 11, 1886 Mary married William Henry Shaneyfelt. She married William using the name Mary McGill, which was her
maiden name. She had asked for her maiden name, Mary Elizabeth McGill, to be restored when she divorced William S. Brown, her
second husband, in 1886. On May 28, 1887 there is a copy of a legal notice published in THE VAN WERT BULLETIN that was
posted in the paper for six weeks, commencing May 28, notifying William Henry Shaneyfelt that she had filed for divorce from him.

She listed her self as a widow in the census, having been married for 3 years. I believe she was referring to her first husband, James
H. Channel, to whom she was married for 3 years, and who left her a widow, because William Shaneyfelt was still living at the time.
There was a courthouse fire so there is no proof of her divorce date from either William S. Brown or from William H. Shaneyfelt.
However, since she began posting in the newspaper May 28, of 1887 that she intended to file for divorce, and which ran for 6 weeks,
I assume that they divorced sometime after late June or July of 1887, making their marriage a duration of only about 7 months time.

1900 CENSUS, VAN WERT CO, OHIO
Mary Shaneyfelt living with her daughter Lillian and Lillian's husband James C. Foley, and children. Mary claims to be a widow,
married 3 years.

1910 VAN WERT CO, OHIO
Mary Shaneybelt lives with her granddaughter (Nondas Brown).

              Catherine Cevela, called Cassie. I have a marriage of Oct 11, 1886 from my dad, that is contradictory to the date in the Marriage

      Notes for ESTHER (ACE) STEVENSON:
      Peter Densel, Esther's grandfather on her mother's side, was born in Germany. He served in the War of 1812, and was awarded a land
      grant in Ohio. He moved his family from New York to the Ohio Valley. Family tradition has it that one of the daughter's of Peter
      was taken captive by the Natives (possibly Shawnee), and when she was returned to her family she was pregnant, and was reportedly
      married to an old Dr., who died a short time after the child's birth. Esther's Native heritage came from that daughter, Barbara--known
      as "Betty" by members of the Shaneyfelt and Mitchell families. This information was given by Paul Shanyfelt (does not use the
      family spelling of Shaneyfelt), grandson of Esther and Thomas Benton Shaneyfelt.

      Co, Ohio; d. February 27, 1937, Flint, Genesee Co (Hurley Hospital), Michigan.

      Notes for CLARA ISABELLE/ BELLE SHANEYFELT:
       Clara was affiliated with the following churches in her lifetime: United Brethren, Methodist, and Presbyterian. She was a devout
      woman, and had a strong belief in God, always trying to steer her children in that same direction. Clara was named Clara Belle, or
      Clara Isabelle, and in her younger days she was sometimes called "Belle" by her family. Clara's mother died when she was 16 years
      old and, as the oldest daughter, she helped raise the children left at home after her mother Elisabeth's early death at that age of 39.
      She married John Willis Mitchell when she was age 17, and he was 21. Her father went on to marry 3 more times, and all were
      unhappy marriages that ended in divorce. Grandmother Clara used to tell about the day she married John Mitchell. " It was a cold,
      crisp, snowy, January day. As the horses pulled the sleigh through the snow on the way to the church, there were white doves flying
      up in the sky, and light fluffy snow." She always remarked on what a beautiful day it was. She told that story often, and with much
      happiness. Below is a recording of that day in her life:

        CERTIFIED COPY OF MARRIAGE RECORD:
      John Mitchell and Clara Shanyfelt, Marriage License issued January 25, AD 1886. The State of Ohio, Paulding Co: William
      Shanyfelt having made application for a license for John Mitchel and Clara Shaneyfelt, and being duly sworn, says that John Mitchell

      of said county, and has no husband living, and that said parties are not nearer of kin that second cousins.

      No. 4, The State of Ohio, Paulding County, ss: I do hereby certify, that on the 25th day of January, 1886, I solemnized the marriage
      of Mr. John Mitchel with Miss Clara Shanyfelt.
      SIGNED: Samuel R. Mott, J. P.
      Filed and recorded 8th day of February, 1886
      Attest: W. G. Lee, Probate Judge
      The State of Ohio, Paulding Co.

        She was a strong disciplinarian with her children. I remember my dad and Uncle Lowell got into an argument in front of her one
      time at a family gathering. She got up, went around the table and twisted Uncle Lowell's earlobe, and told him to be quiet. And then,
      she did the same thing to my dad. I thought that was hilarious, at the time. Another time they were scrapping, and fighting, and they
      fell on a Christmas tree, and broke many of the bulbs on it. Grandma was there pointing her finger, and telling them to behave. It
      always made me laugh to see her do such things because she was so tiny. But, those were her sons, and she was their mother, and she
      made sure they behaved themselves, even when they were adults.
        A funny story she used to tell was about a tornado that touched down on the farm she grew up on. Her family rushed to the root
      celler for safety, and all were saved. The storm did not take the house, but uprooted a lot of trees and shrubs. (She called it a
      hurricane.) She said that they had turkeys that her mother was raising for sale, and had plans for that money. She was going to sell
      the birds as well as their down and feathers, that could be used to stuff pillows, feather ticks, and mattresses. Unfortunately the
      turkeys didn't go to the root cellar with the family, and all were dead in the yard, their feathers plucked off of them by the high winds.
      She said that the yard looked like it had snowed from all the feathers.
        Somewhere in time Clara adopted the Gibson Girl hairdo, and never gave it up. Even up into her later years she was still combing
      her long hair 100 times every night, and then in the morning it would go up into a bun on the back of her head. She used to take the
      hair in her brush and place it in a "hair receiver" on the dresser--a small footed dish with a lid that had a hole in the top. That loose
      hair often found itself back in her hairdo the very next day, stuffed under her bun, to make her hair look fuller. She was fond of black,
      having grown up at the end of the Victorian era, and wore big hats and high buttoned shoes until she could no longer find them.
      Then she still found lace up high shoes, as close to her high buttoned shoes as she could get.
         She wasn't very tall at 4' 9". In her younger days her hair was black. She had very dark brown eyes, so dark that the pupils hardly
      showed. They were an unusual shape--sort of almond shaped. She wore corsets with whalebone in them that I tried on now and
      then, and pantaloons, or bloomers as she called them, when she could find them. Nothing else was appropriate in her mind.
      Grandma didn't do the 20th century very well when it came to fashion. She would comment on my Bermuda shorts now and then and
                                                                116
say I was showing "too much leg." In her mind dresses were worn by women, not pants, and they should reach the floor, or come as
close as possible, to be modest. One of her favorite things was a ring given to her by her husband on the occasion of their son
Lester's birth. It was a garnet and pearl ring, and a great treasure to her. She often wore a strand of black jet beads, and earrings to
match. I also remember some hair jewelry that had been made of the hair of some long passed family member, but that has been lost
over time.
  One of her most favorite things to do was to sew, and do needlework. She often sat at the treadle sewing machine and made little
dresses, or did her mending. She taught me to sew on that machine. In her younger days she had made quilts, linens, doilies, and all
her household items. She did the type of needlework her German ancestors did--Schwalm, Hardanger, and so forth. She could
crochet, tat and smock, and I learned those skills from her as well. She used to say that in her young days she made all of her
children's clothing by hand, without a machine.
   One of my fondest memories is of lying on the feather tick under thick quilts, and grandma talking to me about the crazy quilt on
the bed. She knew who had worn each piece of clothing in the quilt and had a story about every one of them. I especially loved the
stories about her babies. She told of the time she was standing in a metal doorway when lightening struck, and her baby was
stillborn. She had a quilt made from baby dresses that I loved to talk about with her because it brought them to life for me. She loved
everyone of those children, and told endless stories about them.
   Grandma used quilts to talk about Heaven and Bible verses. I soon learned that there were different quilt blocks that represented
various things such as the Tree of Life pattern, and Jacob's Ladder pattern. There was always a story with each pattern, and
something it represented. We had a "Kansas Troubles" quilt that was made to express the problems Kansas had over the slavery
issue, and a Double Wedding Ring quilt also.
   She used to love to sing, especially hymns. Her favorite hymns were "Amazing Grace", "Rock of Ages", and "In the Garden". She
only had about a 3rd grade education collectively, but was a very intelligent and well read person. She said she was educated like
Abraham Lincoln--"by littles"--a little bit here and a little bit there, whenever she could get to school. In her day it was often more
important for a child to be home to help with chores than to be in school. But, her father believed in education, so he attempted to
have his children in school as much as he could. She never missed her evening newspaper, and stayed up on all the latest
happenings in politics. She taught me to read and understand phonics long before I attended school.
   When my husband Tom and I started to date he was surprised by her clear mind at such an advanced age. He asked her about her
life, and mentioned that she had most likely seen many events take place over her lifetime. He asked her if she thought, since man
had gone into space, that a man would ever walk on the moon. She responded in this manner, "Of course man will walk on the
moon! That is the final frontier." She then went on to talk about the first flight of the Wright brothers and the invention of the car,
and many other things that had developed during her long lifetime. Walking on the moon seemed like a very small thing to her. She
spoke of traveling across this country in the back of a wagon, when she was a child, and experiencing untamed land. In her words, it
was "only a matter of time before someone tamed Outer Space as well."
   Grandma was a staunch republican, and always voted in every election, going to the polls until close to her 100th birthday.
Someone in line made a comment on her being so old, at the polls, so she refused to vote that way from that point on. After that time
she voted by absentee ballot--but she never quit voting, until her life came to an end. Voting privileges were hard fought for by
women in her day, and she believed in exercising that right.
   When she turned 100 years of age Oct 30, 1968, she received a letter from the President, who happened to be Lyndon Baines
Johnson, a Democrat. Grandma was not fond of that as she felt that he was not just congratulating her, but wanted her vote. There
was no way she was going to vote for a Democrat! And, she wouldn't listen when everyone tried to convince her of what an honor it
was to receive mail from the President. Her reaction was to put the letter in the wastebasket, and forget about it. I was not allowed to
save that message, unfortunately. Below are some of the others she received.

She'll Vote GOP
CENTENARIAN PLANS TO MAINTAIN RECORD:
A Flint woman who has voted for every Republican Presidential candidate since Warren G. Harding in 1920 will be 100 years old
Wednesday. Mrs. Clara Mitchell lives with her daughter, Mrs. Amy Dickenson, at the Elms Trailer Park, 2801 S. Dort Hwy. She has
two sons, Lester, 722 Huron St., and Lowell, 1304 Forest Hill Ave. She had not voted before 1920 when she was 48--because
women were not allowed to vote before then in the United States. Her husband, John, died in 1937, 14 years after they had moved to
Flint. He was a Buick employee. Mrs. Mitchell doesn't like today's popular music and fondly remembers the romantic duets of
Nelson Eddy and Jeanette McDonald. "Hard work and the old-fashioned virtues" she says, are responsible for her long live. Mrs.
Mitchell is tolerant of today's shorter dresses. "It's a shame I had to wear mine down to my ankles," she said, reminiscing about her
younger days. She things young men look cute in long hair, too. (*these last 2 statements were taken out of context because Grandma
didn't approve of short skirts and long hair--she said it was a sign of rebellion. This reporter twisted her words a bit.) Mrs. Mitchell
has maintained a life-long interest in political affairs. She doesn't want the voting age lowered to 18. She thinks that 21 is a better
age to understand important matters. Mrs. Mitchell is worried about the war in Vietnam. "I don't know why people have to kill each
other, " she said. Her father was a farmer in Western Indiana. Her first school was a log cabin. Mrs. Mitchell is optimistic about
today's generation. Young people, she feels, will help to improve the country. And, she said, she going to vote Republican again, in
next Tuesday's general election.

(5) FLINT JOURNAL, October 30, 1968:
CENTENARIAN'S RELATIVES LISTED:
An article in The Journal Tuesday failed to list several relatives of Mrs. Clara Mitchell, who is celebrating her 100th birthday today.
They are: Two sons: Geroge Rochester, and Ervin, Mesa, Arizona; two daughters: Mrs. Estella Gudakunst of Spencerville, Ohio, and
Mrs. Gladys Callahan, Azusa, California; 18 grandchildren, and 35 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Mitchell lives with another daughter,
Mrs. Amy Dickenson, at the Elm's Trailer Park, 2801 S. Dort Hwy. She has 2 other sons, Lester and Lowell, both of Flint.

   She always preached the virtues of voting, especially to women, as she had not had that privilege in her younger days. She
believed in education and tried to talk her grandchildren into going to college, if she could. She had no greater joy than on the day
one of her grandchildren graduated from high school, and better yet, from college.
  She didn't believe in drinking, but did keep some "spirits" in her closet, for health purposes, dosing herself on occasion, when she
became ill, with whiskey, honey, and lemon juice. She was very health conscious and took vitamins regularly. She never
complained about her aches and pains, although she must have had them. When she would kiss me she always left a wet spot on my
cheek where her nose would rest. She inherited the perpetual hay fever, allergies, and weak immune system, that came down
through the Shaneyfelt family. And she also was hypoglycemic, and needed to eat frequently. Unfortunately, she passed those
things on to her children, and grandchildren, genetically. At the end of her life she suffered from several small strokes, also a
Shaneyfelt legacy, and angina pain connected with her heart. Grandma always had a handkerchief tucked in her sleeve to stop her
constantly dripping nose.
  Once, during the summer of 1968, I took grandma to the Dr. as no one else could do so. It was the first summer after I started
teaching school. I had those months off, so I volunteered to take her. The nurse called for "the mother of Clara Mitchell." I looked
around to see if there could possibly be another Clara Mitchell in the room, but no one else got up. So, I went to the desk and told the
nurse that I thought she needed to read the dates more carefully. She couldn't believe that in 1968 she was looking at a woman who
was born in 1868, and would soon be 100 years old. The fact that someone thought I was her mother kept Grandma chuckling for
several days.
  I once asked her for her recipe for noodles. She always made the best hot buttered noodles, served German style with bread crumbs
mixed in. Unfortunately, she never listed quantities or gave instructions, so all I got was a list of ingredients. I did try to do what she
told me to do, but what I made was nothing like her noodles. Her recipe is as follows:

NOODLES
flour
egg
water
sugar
salt
Pour flour on a floured board, make a well, put in the egg and water, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of sugar, mix, and roll thin. Cut into
pieces and hang to dry.

  She lived with various family members after the death of her husband in 1937, and eventually took up permanent residence with
her son Lester's family. She and I shared a room almost from the time I came home from the hospital on January 13, 1945, until I left
home at the age of 20. After that date she lived with Aunt Amy at the Elm's Trailer Park, until her death in 1969. She did go to
California to stay with her daughter Gladys for a few months, at one time, when Gladys had surgery, but came back to our household
to live. During those years I had the privilege of knowing her well, learning needlework skills and how to read from her. She was
always willing to read a book with me, or help with schoolwork. Grandma lived to be nearly 101 years of age, dying in May, just 5
months before her birthday. As mentioned before in another place, she survived her husband by 32 years.

****************
  John Willis Mitchell was fair complected, had light sandy colored hair, and stood about 5' 6" tall. He weighed about 125-130 lbs.
He often sported a handlebar moustache in his younger days. Because his wife Clara was so short he often looked like a giant next to
her in photos.
  Over the course of his lifetime John Willis was moved from Licking Co, Ohio where he was born, to Jones Co, Iowa. After
returning to Ohio he lived in Delaware Co, and then Paulding Co. Some of the towns he lived in were Tipton, Haviland, Paulding,
and Van Wert. He moved frequently after he married Clara Isabelle Shaneyfelt Jan 25, 1886, in Paulding Co, Ohio, always renting
his land and home, never purchasing, but generally remaining in Paulding Co most of the time, or in Van Wert Co.
                                                         119
  John tried various occupations in his lifetime. He was a farmer, learning about it from his family during his early years before
marriage, and for a time after he married. In 1892 John was in Paulding Co, Ohio, and was running a brick and tile business with his
brother in law, William A. Shaneyfelt. He tried being a merchant, and also running a hardware and dry goods store. His daughter
Amy used to tell of sneaking into the store when her parents weren't looking for a pickle from the barrel.
  The second store he had was built in 1905 and was still standing in 1980 in Tipton, Paulding Co, Ohio. In 1910 John was still in
that business when his grandson Paul was born in an apartment over that very store. The store has since been condemned and torn
down. John also was in the banking business for a while, which was not very lucrative for him, and he didn't do well. With the
depression coming on he needed to find other work, and once again returned to farming, and odd jobs.
  Eventually John and Clara moved to Flint, Genesee Co, Michigan, where he took employment with Buick Motor Division of
General Motors. This move to Flint took place sometime after 1922 when Clara's father died. In 1922 they were living on Blaine St.
in Van Wert Co, Ohio, because there was a comment on Clara being called to her father's funeral. It comes from the Twice Weekly
Bulletin of Van Wert, and states "Mrs. J. W. Mitchell of Blaine Street was called to Scott Wednesday by the death of her father,
William Shanefeldt, of Portland, Indiana, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. M. Hanna. He was 86 years of age."
  John had a series of strokes which took his speech, but didn't keep him from walking around, sometime after 1934 or 1935. His
wife Clara often spoke of how worried she would be when he would be missing for any length of time, as he tended to wander off on
his own. He couldn't speak, and she was afraid that something would happen to him. He was bigger than she was at 4' 9" tall, and she
couldn't make him stay at home. As soon as she turned her back, off he would go. John had his final stroke, and died Feb. 27, 1937.
He is buried in Grace Lawn Cemetery, Flint, Genesee Co, Michigan. His wife Clara survived him by 32 years.
***************
John and his wife Clara are listed in a book on Paulding Co, Ohio
HISTORICAL ATLAS OF PAULDING CO, OHIO, 1892:

Notes for CHRISTOPHER RUCKWEED:
1880 Jay Co, Indiana census



BOOK: BIOGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL RECORD OF JAY CO, INDIANA, PUBLISHED 1887, by Lewis
This book says that Christopher Ruckweed came to America from German with his parents, 4 brothers and sisters. His Civil War
history is included.
  "Christopher Ruckweed, farmer, resides on section9, Madison Twp, where he owns 124 acres of land. He also owns forty acres on
Section 16. He was born in Wittenburg, Germany, March 28, 1840, and came to America in 1852, with his parents and four other
children, the family settling in Madison Twp, on the farm now owned by our subject. There was a small frame house on the place and
twenty acres were partly improved. The father, Christian Ruckweed, was born in Germany in 1807, and died February 7, 1885. The
mother, Mary B. (Weaver) Ruckweed, was also born in Germany, and died the next year after their arrival in America. Both were
buried in Salamonia Cemetery. They were the parents of five children--Christina, wife of Fred Shank, of Madison Twp; Christian,
who died in 1884, aged forty-five years; Louisa P., died in 1878, leaving three children; Catherine married and died leaving one child.
Christopher was educated in the subscription schools of the early day. He enlisted, August 9, 1864, as a seaman on the gunboat
Ouchetaw, on the the lower Mississippi. He was in no regular battle but was under fire several times. He returned home July 4, 1865,
and June 29, 1873, he married Margaret A. Shoenfelt, born in Pike Twp, this county, December 29, 1848, a daughter of Michael H.
and Margaret A. (McCarty) Shoenfelt. The father was born in Maryland, April 9, 1811, and the mother February 3, 1811. The father
died February 18, 1864, and is buried at Nidmore in the Christian Chapel. The mother died December 20, 1885, and is buried at New
Dayton, Randolph Co, Indiana. They were the parents of ten children--William, Polly, Jane, Elizabeth, Melinda, Margaret, wife of our
subject, George, Arthur, Laura N., and Allen. Mr. and Mrs. Ruckweed have two children--Emma L., born August 16, 1874, and Ida
B., born July 31, 1875. Both are members of the Lutheran church."

Christopher was buried under the name Christian. He was a veteran Seaman of the Civil War, serving on the gunboat Ouchetaw, on
the lower Mississippi. He enlisted August 9, 1864, and was discharged honorably July 4, 1865.

Christopher was not in the Jay Co, Indiana 1880 census. Christopher had died by that time, so his wife Margaret was most likely
living with one of her children. She died in Jay Co, Indiana in 1917.

There is another Christopher Ruckweid, who died at age 69, in Jay Co, Indiana, on June 6, 1909. I do not know how he fits into this
family.

JOHANNES1 SCHOENFELT) was born June 30, 1841 in Stoystown, Somerset Co, Pennsylvania, and died February 05, 1911 in New
Germany, Garrett Co, Maryland. He married M ARY ANN ELIZABETH TATE January 02, 1871 in Tyrone, Pennsylvania, daughter of
GEORGE TATE and CATHERINE MATTERN. She was born August 01, 1852 in Huntington Co, Pennsylvania, and died March 25, 1929
in West Salisbury, Pennsylvania.

Notes for SAMUEL DEVON HUMMEL:
He enlisted in Co. E., 54th Pennsylvania Volunteers, August 24, 1861, as a private, for 3 years.
His older brother Joseph R., and younger brother Benjamin Franklin, enlisted at the same time.
Samuel enlisted in the same Co. March 16, 1864, and later transferred to Co. F, of the same Regt.
He was promoted to Corporal April 28, 1865, and was discharged by General Order May 31, 1865.

He took an active part in the following battles:
New Market--May 15, 1864
Piedmont--June 5, 1864
James River--June 14, 1864
Lynchburg--June 17 & 18, 1864

Brother Benjamin Franklin was wounded at New Market, May 15, 1864

His obituary gives his burial place as St. Paul Reformed Church Yard, of New Germany, Rev. Moon officiating. But family gives the
location as United Church of Christ Cemetery, New Germany, Penn. The Daily Tribune newspaper of Johnstown, Penn, obituary,
gives burial as Trinity Evangelical & Reformed Church Cemetery, New Germany, Garrett Co, Maryland. I am not certain which is
correct!
