That names rings a long ago bell .....my grandparents were Ned and Callie C. Shoffner of Byhalia, MS., also had two twin aunts there, Ida and Ada Shoffner; uncle Frank Shoffner with a dairy in Iuka, Mississippi and uncle Charles Shoffner, wife Freddie in Memphis. My mother is Margaret Nancy Shoffner-Williams, sister to Frank, Charles, Florence and Jack (Jack lived in Panama City, Fla. and we never met him). Grandpa Ned died in about 1964 and Grandma Callie much later, not sure of date, but she was 99. I'm sure I've seen the name Francis Marion in family records at one time or another. Do you have more info, if this is indeed same family? I've hit stone walls trying to find family info (know the family came from Germany, that's about all). Thanks. Stan Williams, maternal grandson of Ned Shoffner.
