Hi I'm a descendant of Philibena Dirr's brother in law Martin Shofner. Could you tell me how you're descended?
My line is:
Susie Helme (me)
Josephine Coleman Douglas
Josephine Hutton Douglas
Pierre Allen Colmean Hutton
Anna Belle Shofner
John Shofner + Isabella Catherine Beavers
Martin Shoffner + Catherine Cooke Roundtree
Michael Christian Shoffner + Margaretha Fogleman
I know this is a reply to an old post, but I'd be interested in hearing more of your Michael Christian Shoffner line
I am writing a genealogy of Johann Michael Schaffert (Shoffner, Christian was a mistake), so I have too much information to impart (46,000 + words and a Tree of 1000s). Best if you ask me specific questions. Pls let me know your lineage.
Probably not. I helped a Cousin with a family book, and it cost more to do than we could charge for it. Also, usually family members come out of the woodwork wanting free copies.
My mother was Josephine Coleman Douglas, d/o Beverly Douglas (s/o William Byrd Douglas descended from the Red Douglas and Adelaide Wharton Gaines descended from Davy Gam and the princes of Deheubarth) and Josephine Hutton (descent as yet untraced).
Thank you. That ties up some loose ends.
The story of the princes of Deheubarth – once rulers of much of south west Wales – is a fascinating mix of ambition, rivalry, castle-building and cultural awakening. Formidable characters such as law maker Hywel Dda, and the powerful Lord Rhys ensured the dynasty’s supremacy in the region for over 300 years. For those with welsh ancestry, it is worth studying.
Sir Dafydd ap Llewelyn ap Hywel (c. 1380 – 25 October 1415), better known as Dafydd Gam or Davy Gam, was a Welsh nobleman. He died at the Battle of Agincourt fighting for King Henry V, King of England in that victory against the French.
You have some interesting ancestors!
