Bio and Links
I began researching my family tree after my father died in 1981. I found it is addictive. I will gladly share with other researchers. I live in Berrien County, Michigan and do volunteer research here for others.

RE: William Coleman's father
THank you so INCREDIBLY much for the work you do in Berrien County. I cannot tell you how often I run across your work as I seek to fill in the puzzles in my family tree. William E. Colemans parents were William E. Coleman and Elizabeth Slater :) I know that the death records are iffy prior to 1867 but if you ever run across a William E. Coleman who died around 1856 to 1859 in Berrien (probably Dayton) I would love to know the date of his death. I cannot locate it anywhere. I also cannot for the life of me figure out his parents names or siblings. I only know that he was born around 1823 in Ohio, married Elizabeth Slater in 1852, had 3 children with the last born in 1856 and then disappeared. 1860 his wife was living with her parents again. No death records but she would later refer to herself as a widow. I know there were other Coleman in the area at that time period but nothing I can concretely find to connect them to my William. Again, thank you for all the work you do for your county. It has been a huge blessing to me! Thanks!

addition of son Alva
I am related to Jonathan Waterbury Fancher Sr & GulaElma Hicks Fancher through their son Alva Fancher, and I have put his site on FINDAGRAVE number 103036118. Would you mind attaching Alva's parents to his site? I am fully satisfied with the work you have done with Jonathan Waterbury Sr & wife GulaElma Hicks Fancher and some of their children - great work.

Hannah Shaffer #30345732
Portage Prairie Cemetery
Berrien County
Michigan, USA

I believe this to be Hannah Carvell Shaffer. Per Information I've found in the Archives of the Reformed Church in Lancaster, PA, the genealogy papers donated by the family of Helen Snyder has information that her death date is 25 June 1883 in Buchanan Twp, Berrien County, Miichigan. Mrs. Snyder (now deceased) got the information from Hannah Shaffer's great granddaughter, Florence King. Hannah was born in Snyder County, Pennsylvania on 14 Oct 1814.
