Does anyone recognize this family?

Henry SHAFFNER, died Sep1800, Swatara Twp, Dauphin Co PA
Wife Catherine; children David, Ann

Estate inventory in Nov1800 taken by Catherine SHAFFNER and Peter Fox.

Dauphin Co Orphans Court documents on 21Apr1802, dealing with the estate, show that David SCHAFFNER and Ann SCHAFFNER were minor children under the age of fourteen, making their dates of birth sometime after Apr1788. The court appointed John PATTIMORE of Lower Paxton Twp the younger guardian of the Estates of David and Ann during their minorities.

Catherine was still living, since she initiated the Orphans Court action, to settle the estate.

Jim Lewis, Seguin TX
