I apologize for the SUPER delayed response. Alice Mae Simmons Shaffer was my grandmother as well.. and Herschel Frank Shaffer was my grandfather. So it appears that would make us cousins. There were multiple children....Mike, Herschel Jr, Betty, Frances, Paul, Sharon and Jackie as far as I know. Hopefully by now you were able to gather the information you were seeking. I just started to dig into my history again and came across this message thread. In any event, good luck with your searches.
