Funeral Saturday Of Chas Schaefer.
The funeral of the late Charles Schaefer, who was a victim of a fatal heart attack at Palmerston on Wednesday afternoon, April 5, was held on Saturday afternoon. A service was at 1:30 at Henderson Undertaking parlors, Palmerston , followed by public service in Fordwich United church, which was largely attended. Rev. F.E. Clysdale, pastor of Palmerston United church and Rev. Heathcote, rector of the Anglican church, had charge and pallbearers were Messrs, George Ferguson of Toronto; George Sinken of Kitchener; James Pritchard, Austin Gallagher, John Darroch and Bert Fallis of Palmerston. Interment was made in Fordwich cemetery. Mr. Schaefer was seventy-seven years of age on February 1 last and was born on the third of Wallace township. When he was quite young the family moved to Mayne Corners, the homestead now being occupied by a nephew of the deceased. In 1883 he married Sarah Pike, who died about eight years ago. Surviving are two daughters and one son, [Mabel] Mrs. Thompson of Los Angeles; [Allie] Mrs. Ray Garry of Cheltenham, who is at present visiting in Los Angeles; Homer A. Schaefer, of Elora. Four sisters and one brother also survive; Mrs. C. Martin, Toronto; Mrs. Sol. Kaufman, Kitchener; Mrs. George Detwiller and Mrs. John Playford, Galt and John, Listowel. Mr. Schaaefer for years carried on business as a drover, also conducting a butcher shop at Fordwich for a time. Ten years ago he moved to Palmerston, continuing as a buyer of livestock. Six years ago he married Mrs. Elizabeth Watson of Listowel, to whom is extended sincere sympathy in her bereavement particularly hard due to her own physical affliction, being in Palmerston hospital at the present time with a broken hip.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I will include this information in my Schaefer Family Tree.

If you come across anything else I would appreciate it also.

Are you related to a Schaefer?

This fall I went up to Fordwich to the cemetery to take headstone photographs. I do have some headstone photographs of people in the Schaefer Family Tree.

Included in that is the headstone of Charles Schaefer and Sarah Pike as well as their son Charles Schaefer.

If that could be of any assistance I could send them to you.

Thanks
I have all of that info
It was Schaefers stone that got me to research it, I know that Sarah Pyke did not married Charles Shaffer so I check the Listowel Archive and found that this Pyke should have been Pike
Thanks again for your info

I was interested to see your search in the Schaefer family history. I presume we are related because I am Charles Schaefer's granddaughter and Henry was his brother.
My father and mother were Homer and Emma Schafer (they changed the spelling so it wouldn't look so German during W.W.2.) I don't know what I am allowed to print on this message. Am I allowed to e-mail you or does everything pass through ancestry?

We are second cousins 1 time removed.

I have a pretty good history on the Schaefers but am actually fairly weak in the Charles Schaefer lineage.

Give me an email and we can exchange information.
