"WILLIAM HENRY SHAFER is distinguished in the annals of Cass County
as being the second oldest settler in point of settlement, and to him and men of like
energy, enterprise and ability, does it owe its present importance and prosperity. He took up his residence
in Plattsmouth in 1854, when there was scarcely another habitation for miles around, shrewdly
noting its efigible position for a town site, and it is with pleasure that he has witnessed the various
stages of its growth from the wild, lonely prairie, and then a struggling village, to its present size
and importance as the metropolis of one of the finest counties and richest farming regions in the State, and
it must be to him a source of satisfaction that he has had a hand in bringing about this marvelous
change. He is extensively engaged in the real-estate business in this city, aside from devoting much
time to looking after his private interests, as he has a large amount of property, and at one time
owned 1,000 acres of land in Cass County, besides 1,500 acres in other parts of Nebraska and Iowa.

The subject of this biographical notice was born in Pendleton County,
Ky., and his father, Frederic Shafer, was likewise born in that State, Harrison County being the
place of his birth. His father Henry Shafer, was a native of Pennsylvania, and was there reared and
married. His first wife died there, and he married a second time, the grandmother of our subject
being his second wife. After his second marriage he resided in Mercer County, his native State, until
his removal to Kentucky with several other families. They made the journey from Pittsburgh down
the Ohio River in a flatboat. The country through which they passed presented a very different
appearance from what it does today, the picturesque banks of the stream being thickly wooded with tall,
centuries-old trees. But in the depths of the primeval forest lurked the implacable enemy of the
early settlers, the Indian, and once on the way they were attacked by the hostile aborigines, but all
escaped unharmed. The grandfather of our subject took up a tract of heavily timbered land in Harrison
County, after his arrival in Kentucky, and cast in his lot with the pioneers of that State. The
land had never been surveyed, and he marked the boundaries of his claim by blazing trees. The Indians
being numerous, the settlers were obliged to build a fort, to which they could flee on occasion of
hostile demonstrations from them. The men had frequently to go out on scouting expeditions, and
Mr. Shafer was with Poe on one of these when Mr. Poe killed the Indian chief, Big Foot. There
were no markets in that part of the country for farm products for some years, and the people lived in
the most primitive manner. The grandmother of our subject used to spin, weave, and make up all the
cloth used in the family, and the skins of wild animals were utilized to make clothing. After several
years of hard labor, and the patient endurance of hardships, Mr. Shafer cleared a fine farm, which
remained his home until death claimed him. His wife then removed to Illinois with her son John, and died at
his home in Vermilion County. She was the mother of nine children, of whom the father of our
subject was one.

The latter was reared in Harrison County, but after marriage he moved
to Pendleton County, in the same State, and bought timbered land, from which he cleared a farm.
He built a log house for a dwelling, and in that humble abode his son, of whom we write, first
opened his eyes to the light of day. The father engaged in general farming there for several years,
then took up his residence in Gallatin County, where he bought a partially improved farm. In 1836,
seven years later, we find him among the pioneers of Decatur County, Ind., where he purchased a
tract of land, which he cultivated during his six years' residence there. After that he spent eight
years in Tipton County, and then he found a home in Nebraska with his son, our subject, until his death,
Oct. 3, 1867, at the advanced age of seventy-eight. The maiden name of his wife was Sarah Jones,
and she was a daughter of Joshua Jones, of Pennsylvania. She was born in Harrison County, Ky.,
and died at the home of a daughter in Cass County, this State, April 5, 1865. She and her
husband were the parents of the following children: Seth, Milton, Thomas, William H., Joshua and
Harriet.

William Shafer was four years old when his parents moved to Gallatin
County, and about twelve years old when they crossed the border to take up their abode in
Indiana, the removal being made with wagons. The home that his father selected comprised a tract of
land in the wilderness, and there our subject was reared amid the pioneer influences that often serve
to bring out strength of character and manly self-reliance. The household lived in the most simple
manner, luxuries being almost unattainable; the mother did all her cooking before the fire in the
rude fireplace, and it was her skillful hands that made all the clothing for her family. Our subject made his
home with his parents until he was about twenty years of age, although he had previously worked out
by the day or month, receiving for wages fifty cents a day in harvest seasons and $8 a
month at other seasons of the year. At the age mentioned he went to Switzerland County, Ind., with two of
his brothers, and they rented land and engaged in agricultural pursuits for two years at that
point. Our subject then married, and after than rented land and farmed it on its own account for three
years. We next hear of him in Tipton County, where he invested the money that he had accumulated in
a 100-acre tract of timbered land, at $2 an acre. He built a primitive log structure,
with an earth and stick chimney at one end of it, and in that house he and his wife took up their abode.
Pioneer conditions still obtained in that part of the country, from which the primeval forests had not
yet been eliminated by the ax of the settler; nor had the wild turkeys, deer, wolves and other animals
fled before the advancing steps of civilization, but venison and the delicious meat of the wild
turkey often set forth the table of the settler. Mr. Shafer cleared and cultivated twenty-five acres of his
land, and made his home on it until 1854. In the spring of that year he sold his land, and migrating with
his family to Iowa, purchased a tract of timbered land, comprising 500 acres, near Glenwood, opposite
Plattsmouth, and there resided from May 25 until November 19. His removal to that place had
been by rail to Madison, Ind., where he had embarked on a steamer for Bethlehem, Iowa,
traveling on the waters of the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. He paid his first visit to
Nebraska April 25 of that year, and pre-empted the land where he now lives, which now forms a part of the
city. May 19 he erected a log house on the place, with a stick and mud chimney, and a few
months later moved into it with his family. At that time there were but two homes in Plattsmouth, and the
Indian titles had not been quieted, but after the ratification of the treaties, the Government
sold the land for $1.25 an acre. In 1855 Plattsmouth was surveyed, and Mr. Shafer assisted in the first
survey by carrying the chain.
Two men named Martin and O'Neill had kept a store on the opposite
side of the river, and had later become the proprietors of the town site, and had platted the city.
They both died here. In 1855 a post-office was established here, it being kept in a log building
that was for some years used for a store, and the mail came once a week from Glenwood, Iowa. After
settling here Mr. Shafer turned his attention to the improvement of his land, a part of which was
open prairie and a part of it covered with brush. In August, 1850, he commenced freighting across the
plains to Denver, starting with two wagons laden with flour, with three yokes of oxen to each wagon. Two
men accompanied him, and they took provisions and cooked and camped by the way. The Indians
were at that time peaceable and friendly, and did not attempt to molest them. Buffaloes, deer,
antelopes and other wild game were plentiful and were seen nearly every day. It took three months
to make the round trip to and from Denver, and each year after that he made two trips across the
plains until 1868, and then made trips from Julesburg to Denver. During that year he also made two
trips from Denver to Ft. Wallace, Kan., a distance of 160 miles, for the purpose of teaming lumber, and
during the time he killed several buffaloes. The Indians were then hostile, but he fortunately
never happened to encounter them. In 1879 Mr. Shafer freighted from Denver to the Upper North
Platte, and also for the contractors on the Union Pacific Railroad, between the Upper North
Platte and Echo Canyon and from Bayant City to Salt Lake City. In the fall of the year he
disposed of his team at a good price, and returned to his home in Plattsmouth, and established himself in
the real-estate business. In the spring of 1876 he concluded to resume freighting, and started for
Sidney, Neb., with three wagons and seven yokes of oxen, and there loaded freight for the Black
Hills. It took six weeks to make the round trip between Sidney and Deadwood, and the cost of freighting
articles to the latter point was from two and one-half cents to three cents a pound. Mr. Shafer
continued freighting between those points for three years, and then he went upon the route between Ft.
Pierce and Deadwood for two years. July 12, 1881, he sold his teams at Ft. Pierce, and returned
home. In 1882 he set about the improvement o fhis real estate by building, and during that year he
erected seventeen dwellings and a blacksmith-shop, thus giving Plattsmouth's building interests quite a
boom. In 1882 he formed a partnership with William Wise, and they became agents for the Union
Pacific Railroad for the sale of that company's Cheyenne lands. At the end of one season they
dissolved partnershi8p, and our subject has been dealing in real estate alone since that time. His is
a busy, active life, and has been fraught with much adventure. He has accomplished much where a less
determined and energetic man would have failed, and is now numbered among the substantial and
wealthy men of this community.

Mr. Shafer was married, May 30, 1846, to Elizabeth Gullion, a native
of Switzerland County, Ind., Dec. 14, 1826 being the date of her birth. Her parents, John and
Elizabeth (Scudder) Gullion, were also natives of Indiana. Dec. 22, 1872, this devoted wife and tender
mother was removed from the cares and sorrows of earth, and many there were to share the grief of
the family thus left desolate. To her and her husband twelve children had been born, seven of whom
are living -- John F., Melissa J., Missouri A., Sarah C., Zilva, Hattie and Ida. In early manhood
Mr. Schafer was a Whig, and he cast his first vote for Henry Clay. On the formation of the
Republican party he fell into its ranks, and has firmly supported its measures ever since.

Portraits of this noble old pioneer and his equally noble wife, who
had witnessed and participated in the growth of the city of Plattsmouth from its primitive state of
open prairie to its present flourishing condition, are given herewith."

William Henry Shafer & Elizabeth Gullion are my ggg grandparents. Wondering if there is a photo available of Elizabeth anyone might have? I descend thru their daughter Missouri Ann Shafer, who married John Jones Mayfield.

Would appreciate a reply from anyone researching this family. I have info to share also. someone asked who Elizabeths mother was. Her name was Betsy Scudder.

I am a Great Great Granddaughter of William Henry Shafer and Elizabeth S. Gullion. I have been researching them for several years. I have visited Elizabeth's gravesite at Oak Hill Cemetery, where her daughters Alice and Zerilda are also burried. Zerilda was my Great Grandmother and Fred Warren Bishop my Great Grandfather--He died at Waterford,Erie, Penn on Aug 1, 1923. Zerilda and Fred had five children: Birdie, Pearl, Earl, Coril and Iva Fern, my grandmother who married Rolley Lee Smith in Devizes, Norton, Kansas. Zerilda had no other husband than Bishop.
I would love to hear from you. I have rumors of Indian troubles, etc. I would love to verify. My E-mail is nltt@ktc.com.
