Thanks for the info on Sarah. I did have the dates but not her parents.
Her husband is my 1st cousin 5 X removed so I was happy to get it.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner Jeff. We've had a lightning storm pass thru the last few days so was unplugged!
Regards,
Reta Young in Nv.

It's possible that George Washington Shaffer could be a brother to Daniel. What is the source of your information about Daniel's birth? Maybe I can search it for George.

I don't know if this is the same George Washington Shaffer with a brother Daniel that you are looking for. The record I have for George Washington Shaffer , b. 1813 White Indiana, PA and d. 23 Jul 1890 is the son of David Shaffer b. 1769 Hopewell Twp, York, PA and d. 30 May 1854 in Rummel, Paint, Somerset, PA. He was married to Catherine or Kate Faust, b. 1782 in Peach Bottom, York, PA and died 4 Apr 1872 in Paint Twp, Somerset, PA.

These are the sources I have for George Washington Shaffer:
