1850 US Federal Census

1850 US Federal Census for Pennsylvania > Jefferson > Warsaw > page 11, as enumerated the fifteenth of October 1850, has a record of the Henry and Appollona Shoffner family. The census taker wrote the family's surname incorrectly. For the rest of this record it will be spelled properly. Henry Schaffner, age 47, born about 1803 in Germany, farmer; Appollona Schaffner, age 41, born about 1809 in Germany; Solomon Schaffner, age 19, farmer; John Schaffner, age 16, born about 1834, farmer; Henry Schaffner, age 13, born about 1837; Valentine Schaffner, age 11, male, born about 1839; Maria Schaffner, age 8, born about 1842; Sarah Schaffner, age 6, born about 1844; Susannah Schaffner, age 5, born about 1845; Samuel Schaffner, age 4, born about 1846; Elizabeth Smith, age 19, born about 1831 in Germany.

1880 US Federal Census

1880 US Federal Census for Pennsylvania > Jefferson > Polk > 199 > page 7, as enumerated on the first day of June 1880, has a record of the Solamon (sic.) and Margret Shaffner family. Solomon Shaffner, age 49, farmer, Solomon says that he was born in Pennsylvania and his parents were both born in Switzerland; Margret Shaffner, age 43, wife, keeping house, she said she and her parents were all born in Pennsylvania; Perry Henry Shaffner, age 17, laborer at home; Barrett D. Shaffner, age 14; Morris R. Shaffner, age 11; Lorena C. Shaffner, age 7; Vina A. Shaffner, age 2. All the children were born in Pennsylvania and even though the census record says (1) that Perry is the son of Solomon and (2) Solomon says he was born in Pennsylvania, (3) Perry says his father was born in Switzerland and the census taker recorded it so.

On this same page is a record of the John and Francis Shaffner family. John is Solomon's younger brother. John Shaffner, age 46, farmer, John said he was born in Pennsylvania and both his parents were born in Switzerland; Francis P. Shaffner, age 43, wife, keeping house, born in Ohio; Freemon H.

There was a line for Oiliver P. Shaffner, age 18, son, laborer at home, but it had a line drawn through it. All of the children were born in Pennsylvania.
