I've "rescued" an old photograph album which appears to have belonged to the
SHAFER Family of Indiana, Illinois, Colorado, Missouri, and Ohio. Based on
limited research I was able to locate a considerable amount of information
regarding the family and have included some of that information below along
with details of the photographs included in this album.
