NOTE: Received a letter and updated Family Group Record sheets, 12/9/1994, from Hilda Kilts Alverson, 60349 A Ave. Dr. E., Bradenton, FL 34203: "December 1994. Sorry about not sending this back sooner, as all the Alverson Data was in the family Bible at my son's home in Texas. I was there from November 8th to the 29th so had it completed. Happy Holidays to you and Family." Signed: Hilda Alverson. Also included was a note: "I got all this information from obituaries that my grandmother, Melvina Shafer Kilts, had cut from newspapers and posted in a scrap book, but she failed to write the date of the newspapers. "One thing I'm certain is that Sylvester Shafer was born in Warnerville or Cobleskill (in obituary) and did not come from Holland." Herman Witthoft: I thought that this was correct, but some of the ancestors of Sylvester, like Clara Granlee, thought he was from Holland." If he is a Warnerville Shafer, then this line is related to me, but if from Holland, no. (Info given in theHISTORY OF SCHOHARIE COUNTY was given by Sylvester and he named his parents. No doubt as to his parentage regardless of what current day ancestors believe!)

Mrs. Shafer had been a great sufferer from cancer for over a year. Death resulted from a complication of diseases. She was 78 years of age.Mrs. Shafer was a true wife, a loving mother, a kind neighbor and an earnest Christian. She had been a member of the Methodist church at Sharon for 49 years. She was faithful to her church and attended it as long as she wasable. Truly a good woman has gone to rest. She bore all her sufferings in patience, and was ready and willing to go at any time her Saviour called her home. Often she was heard praying for the welfare of her children and love dones. The legacy she has left behind her is better, far better than gold - the memory of a sweet christian characterand a saint of God.

DOCUMENTATION: From HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, PAMONA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA with biographical sketches of the leading men and women of the valley who have been identified with its grown and development from the early days to the present, 1920: "WALTER SHAFER Pamona has been fortunate in the quality of citizens who have chosen this beautiful Valley as their homesite, and who have unselfishly worked to help their neighbor as well as themselves. Among these may be mentioned Walter Shafer, who passed to his reward August 18, 1911, but whose name is held in appreciative remembrance in the hearts of friends and neighbors who were associated with him in the years of his residence in the Valley. A native of New York State, Mr. Shafer was born about twelve miles from Middleburg, Schohrie County, January 3, 1855, and in that state engaged in farming. In 1888 Mr. Shafer came West and settled in Pomona Valley, and soon after his arrival here purchased four and one-half acres of land on North San Antonio Avenue, which had been planted to Navel oranges and prunes, but he replanted to Navel and Valencia oranges and brought the property to a high state of improvement. Later, he planted ten acres to oranges for a Mr. Kelley, and still later became owner of that tract also, which he sold at a profit and continued in the development of his original ranch. While developing his own property Mr. Shafer took an active interest in the development of the community as a whole, and he was president of the California Produce Company, one of the independent packing companies of the Valley. He was a director in the Kingsley Water Company, and a director and stockholder in the Fraternal Aid Association, which erected the Opera House at Pomona. Together with John C. Deck, Mr. Shafer organized a fumigating concern when that method of obliterating the scale was first started, and they ran several gangs of men and had the large stout fit in the Valley, even going into San Bernardino County to operate. Mr. Shafer finally bought out his partner and operated the business alone, and he was thus engaged at the time of his death. February 11, 1890, Mr. Shaferwas united in marriage with Mary A. Northrup, a native of Michigan; two daughters were born of their union,Winifred May, a student at Pomona College, and Mildred Julia. During his many years of residence here Mr.Shafer took an active part in church work in the Presbyterian Church; and fraternally he was a member of the Fraternal Aid and of the K.O.T.M. A kind and obliging neighbor and a true friend through both adversity and spiritual trials, it is for these traits of character that his memory is held in loving esteem by his many friends in the community."
