Descendants of Jacob Sheffer

1 Jacob SHEFFER b: Dec 30, 1728

. +Otilla ?

....... 2 Daniel SHEFFER b: Abt. 1763

.......... +Catherine MICHAEL

Note there is conflicting information regarding the 1st and 2nd generations above. It is known for a fact that William Sheffer based on his death certificate is the son of Daniel Sheffer and Catherine, whose surname was not mentioned, thus MICHAEL is not proven. The fact that Daniel Sheffer was born abt 1763 and is the son of Jacob and Otilla remains a point of conflict with the research of others.  The basis I used was taken from this book:

Johannes Friederick Kirshof: Early Settler and Patriarch of Northern Augusta County by Lula Mae Miller, page 565:

SHEFFER
Jacob Sheffer, the first in America, was born at Darmstadt, Germany Dec 30, 1728. He arrived in America in 1749. He married Otilla in 1751. He received a land grant in Shenandoah County Aug 3, 1762 through Lord Fairfax. He lived west of Mt. Jackson in Shenandoah County in the neighborhood of the old Pine Lutheran and Reform Church and the present day St. Mary's Lutheran Church. He and Otilla are buried in the St. Jacob's Church Cemetery which is north on Route 42 between Hudson's Crossroads and Woodstock. The Sheffer family lived in this area a number of years. Many descendants were baptized in the old Pine Lutheran Church and this information is recorded and is available. Daniel, one of his many children, came to Northern Augusta County to the Stokesville area; Daniel Sheffer born 1763 Shenandoah County, Virginia married May 31, 1803 in Augusta County to Catherine Michael whose father was Frederick Michael.
