I am not sure if there is a connection here, but my great-grandfather was John William Shreffler. He was born in Center Co., PA, on August 24, 1876, and died on February 8, 1962 in Kern Co., California. I do have some additional information regarding his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and great-great-great grandchildren. If there is a connection, please let me know as I have been having trouble finding information on my great-grandfather. You can email me at

I have also started to research my family history, and I chose to start with the Schrefflers first. My Grand father is Robert Schreffler, son of Edna( Berkheiser)Schreffler and Harry Adam Schreffler. I am having trouble finding info on Harry Adam Schreffler's parents & grandparents though. If you find out, could you please tell me? Thanks
