message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Shirley, maybe this will help. I have a Jhon (John) Platz and wife Julia Ann Shafer of PA in early 1800's. They had one son, Isaac, who went to MO, and another son, Israel who "raised a large family and lived near his folks near LaGrange, IN". Israel was born c. 1830-35, and I do not know the name of his wife. I have names of 3 children; Elvira, Milo and Joseph, but no other information. Perhaps this will help, and if you find a connection, I have more information about John and Isaac. Howard Platz
