The Andrew Shoffner died in 1939 in Searcy, Arkansa is Andrew Corbit Shoffner (1893-1939). He is grandson of Dr. Andrew Caldwell Shoffner (1830-1904)who is buried at the Walker Cemetery which is also in White County (see the White County Historical Society website Augustus Franklin "Gus' Shoffner (1864-1921) was Andrew Corbit's father and Andrew Caldwell's son. Andrew Caldwell Shoffner came to White County from Marshall County Mississippi after the War Between the States. Andrew's Caldwell's parents were Martin C. Shoffner (1805-1858) and Jane Catherine Johnson (1811-1852). Martin in turn was the son of John Shofner who died Oc 15, 1831 at age 86, 8 mo, 16 days and is buried in Lt. Martin's Lutheran Church Cemetery anout 8 miles south of Albermarle, North Carolina. He lived in Lancaster County South Carolina and Stanly County North Carolina. His wife's name was probably Elizabeth and/or Christina (surname unknown). He may be the Johan Jacob Schaffner who emigrated on the ship Minerva in 1768. It seems likely that he is either a younger brother or nephew to Michael Shoffner of Orange and Alamance Counties, North Carolina. The Shoffners of Shoffner (Jackson County Arkansas) are descendants of Michael Shoffner according to Margaret Shoffner DeMoss.
