The farm in eastern part of Schoharie Town to be divided equally as soon as David is twenty-one years of age. John to have the part with buildings and personal property.

"John Becker of Schoharie was appointed 3 May 1824, guardian of David Warner, age 18 yrs. 9 mos. 3 days, son of deceased Mathies Warner of Schoharie." Matthew Warner's will definitely refers to David as his son, and brother of John, Hanna, Eve, Mary, Sarah and Deborah. However, the church record states that David was a son of Matthias Werner and Sarah. Thus it appears that Maria Elisabeth died some time after the birth of Deborah (or the birth of Netta 7 December 1794, reported by Cady), and that Matthew married someone by name of Sarah prior to or in the year of 1805 when he begins to appear in the church records as "Matthew Werner and Sarah, his wife".

BIOGRAPHICAL: Nicholas was a brother to Frederick of Osnabruck, U.E.L. He may have died about 1839 as the Land Abstract, Township of Osnabaruck, Stormont Co., Ontario Canada notes the registration of a will.

DEATH: "Sept. 12, 1838 the corpse of Nicholas Schaefer of Osnabruck died Set. 11, 1838 (?) aged 85 yrs 11 mos 19 days". PAF program computes d/o/b to be 23 Sept 1752 with a note, "possible error due to Gregorian calendar change". We have his d/o/b as 20 Sept 1752. This is close enough to identify that this is the Nicolas we are talking about. (Source of death information unknown at this time.)

(Marjean Holmes Workman, 21 Horton Road, Mont Vernon, NH 03057-1210) (She is later referred to in this account as "MHW")

S.A.R. - "Served American Revolution"

MILITARY: Served in the Revolutionary War along with his brothers John, Henry, and his half brother Jacob.

MILITARY: MILITARY RECORDS OF SCHOHARIE COUNTY VETERANS, WAR OF REVOLUTION, George H. Warner, 1891; "Fifteenth Regiment, New York Levies and Militia, Lambert Shafer, did service under Miller". (MHW) "On 27 Jul 1832, Lambert Schaefer, resident of Townsend, Huron Co., and 80 years of age, appeared in Norwalk, Huron Co., OH, before the Superior Court to apply for benefits under the act of Congress passed 7 Jun 1832. In the affidavit written at this time he stated that he entered the Continental army in 1775 as a private for nine months into a company commanded by Captain Christian Braun or Brown, in a Regiment commanded by Colonel Peter Vrooman. He first served at Fort Stanwix and from there he went to and served at Fort Edward and from thence he went to Lake Champlain. At the end of the said nine months he was honorably discharged, the discharge of which was lost. Lambert then served in the Militia of the State of New York commanded by Captain Brown and Colonel Vrooman from 1776 to the time of peace of 1783. He served in this militia for 3-4 years. He signed his name to this affidavit as Lambert Schaefer. His pension certificate was issued on 22 May 1833 for $80 per annum. This pension act was to commence on 4 March 1831, and so he received two years retroactive for 4 March 1831 to 4 March 1833 of $160.00, plus a half year from 4 March 1833 to 4 September 1833 of $40.00. His date of death was not recorded within these records, but this could indicate that he died around September 1833."

RESIDENCES: (Marjean Holmes Workman) "In his pension papers, Lambert stated that since the Revolutionary War he lived in Coverskill [sic] for between 20-30 years, from thence he went to Madison Co., NY, where he lived as much as four years. From thence he moved to Florence from thence to Eldridge and from thence to Townsend in the County of Huron, OH." "Although no deeds have been found for Lambert in Huron or Erie Counties, OH, a life lease was recorded. On 29 June 1822 Briant Milliman of Townsend granted a life lease for certain considerations and for the sum of one dollar, for land in Lot No. 23 to Lambert Shafer and Mary Shafer, his wife of Townsend. This was one acre in the "southeast of my improvement in the lot No. 23 in the second range of the lots in said township and ten acres of land on the south east corner of the same timbered lot likewise ten apple trees and three cherry trees said Shafer and his wife is to have the house he now lives in." This was to be held by Lambert and Mary as long as they lived in said house. Witnesses were Daniel Butler and Amos Milliman."

DEATH: (Marjean Holmes Workman) "It is believed he died after the 1840 Census, in which it appears he may be living with his son Lambert, Jr., in Florence, Erie County, OH. However, the last positive proof of him still living is an affidavit filed by him on 23 February 1833. "

BURIAL: (Marjean Holmes Workman) "He is buried about two miles south of Birmingham, Erie Co., OH, in Florence Township on the bank of the Vermilion River, in the Shafer Cemetery." From: ERIE COUNTY, OHIO, CEMETERY CENSUS BEFORE 1909, August 1989, page 868, sent to me by the Erio County Chapter, OGS, 2 February 1999: "There are three stones on the banks of the Vermilion River. The stone on Lambert Schaefer's grave is a new one, probably to replace the one there when the graves were dug up by some teens. The spelling is different, even though they are the same family."
