Friedrich Schaeffer: 1836-1907

FreidrichSchaeffer 001

This is a photo given to me by Father Bernie Schaeffer and Ed Kies, all related to the Schaeffer family that settled in Aurora Illinois.  It is a photo of Friedrich Schaeffer, born 4 March 1836 in Kamenka, moved to Josefstal with his family in 1852, and then died in Josefstal 12 September 1907.

Families still discover such little-known treasures, even today!

How about you?  Do you have any old photographs of people in Josefstal you could share so they will be preserved?  Email them to: tedgerk@yahoo.com

Thank you!
