Johannes Schaeffer was the husband of Maria Elizabeth Schaeffer, who was born in Germany in about 1664 and emigrated from to America in 1710 as part of the large-scale emigration of Protestants from the German Palatine region. She settled in Schoharie, New York, together with her sons, Johannes and Heinrich. Johannes, her husband, apparently died during the sea crossing or shortly after arrival in America. [1]

Johannes Schaeffer is listed as an adult man on some of New York Governor Robert Hunter's records of Palatine immigrants. He is inferred to have been Maria Elizabeth's husband. Based on his absence from later records, he is presumed to have died during the sea crossing or shortly after arriving in America.[2]

Shafer-911 and Schaeffer-561 appear to represent the same person because: Hi, these are duplicate profiles of the same family members in a wider duplicate group. Would suggest the German spelling given this person was born in Germany, also source records for other family members support it. Shafer can be recorded as an alternative last name in the profile. Thanks!
