Seeking information on Walter and Henrietta Shaffer Garrett of Philadelphia, PA. Henrietta died in Philadelphia between 1930 and 1934 and may have had ties to the Shaffer and Liddick families of Perry County, PA. Any help would be appreciated.

There was an article published in the 11 September 1949 Saturday Evening Post Called The Scramble for the Garrett Millions. It was one of the longest articles ever published in that fourm and the Libarary of Congress on perhaps a large city will have copies of this article.

Thanks Margaret. My grandfather and his cousin were among those "scambling" for the money. I'll try to track down a copy of the article.

Do you know of any connection back to the Shaffer or Liddick families of Perry County. If so, I'd appreciate any information that you may have. Thanks again.

According to the Saturday Evening Post article, Walter was a descendant of the immigrant, Levi Garrett. That's all the information that I have on him.

Henrietta's father was Christoph Schaefer, born Aug 5, 1808 in Nauheim, Hesse-Cassel, Germany, christened Johann Christoph Schafer. Her mother was Wilhelmine Henrietta Charlotte Kretschmar, born Nov 30, 1819 in Hagen, Westphalia, Prussia. She had one brother, John.

Do you know if George is part of Christoph Schaefer's name? Also any of Christoph's siblings? Looking for George Schaffer,Shafer,etc., who has a brother named Alexander. My notes say George had a daughter named Henrietta Garrett. This is all I know and am trying to find a match.
Thanks, Kelly

You would not happen to know any more of her ancestors names would you?
My grandmother or great grandmother was listed in legal papers as being related to her, a nieceor something like that. Unfortunately I do not have the right connection to her and can't seem to find it. I have a Christopher Shaver in the family but the date of birth is off by about 8 years. And his parents listed are not the same as I have found online in others family trees..
