MILITARY: MILITARY RECORDS OF SCHOHARIE COUNTY VETERANS, WAR OF REVOLUTION, George H. Warner, 1891; "Fifteenth Regiment, New York Levies and Militia": Marcus Shafer -- served under Captain Miller.

CHILDREN: 4/1995 - There has been some discussion between Martha Foland (MF) and Herman Witthoft (HWW) as to whether or not the following children belong to this Marcus (RIN 2733) and Anna Kniskern (RIN 9263), family MRIN # 3217, or to Marcus (RIN 2851) and Christina Berg (RIN 2913), MRIN # 1022. I think they belong to the first family, Marcus, MRIN 3217: 1. Catharine Schaeffer - RIN 3034, b. 8 Feb 1792. 2. David W. Schaeffer - RIN 3035, b. 11 May 1797. 3. Christina Schaeffer - RIN 3036, b. 7 Sep 1800. Martha states her reasons: "I think church record is in error and wife should be "Anna". See Will. Also, I doubt if Marcus & Sara would have sponsored the other Marcus' baby." SO, I am transferring the children to the other family.
