"Hi Bryan, 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…"

Hello, cousin! Our common ancestor is Michael Christian and Margaretha Fogleman Shofner, Sr. Here is my line: Michael and Philabena Duerr Shofner, Jr > Daniel and Elizabeth Warren Shofner > Marticia D. "Tisha" Shofner and Nelson Walton > Cordelia Ann Walton and Charles B. McHenry > William Thomas McHenry and Louisa Frances Wakefield > Tommie Grace McHenry and Ollie P. David > me. I think the latest descendants of Martin and Katherine Cooke Shofner that I have in my database is about 1912. Hope you will share what you have and can correct some of my errors. My regular email is elcourtney @ earthlink.net. I do not post information about living individuals on the internet but will share with relatives and fellow researchers. Hope to hear from you.
