There was a Francis Shaffer, USAAF who died in the WWII. I believe his dad or kin was James Shaffer of the 1945 runaway trailer truck incident in Oakland, Johnstown, PA. It was in the 09/20/1945 Tribune newspaper. There was a Rosalia Shaffer who may have been his mother or wife or of the James Shaffer. I am not sure of the relationship in all of this other than Francis, Rosalia and James are close kin. Francis Shaffer was honored in 1952 with a memorial book "Britain's Homage to 28,000 American Dead." The kin lived at 657 linden Avenue in Moxham and 20 Dupont Place. Does any one have anything on the family lineage?
