Dear Laurie and Ken,

 

I would be most grateful for lookups on the following people listed in the Brown County Permanent Residents Index.  The list is greedy so I have put a “*” on the names with highest interest.  I live in Maryland and will not be able to travel to Illinois until at least a year from now.

 

*Shafer, Adam________ ________107
*Shafer, Benjamin F.________ 107
Shafer, Carrie Wilson________ 107
*Shafer, Charles________ 107
Shafer, Cora (Lee)________ 105
*Shafer, Emeline________ 107
*Shafer, Francis Marion________ 107
*Shafer, H. D.________ ________107
Shafer, Martha (Thomas)________ 107
Shafer, Maude Ella________ 107

 

I am very grateful for this information.  It may help clear up one of those elusive genealogy mysteries.

 

Best regards,

 

Janet Barth (GG Grandniece of Adam Shafer)
