Birth: Aug. 29, 1854, Germany
Death: Feb. 10, 1936

Henry Schafer's parents were Henry and Margaret (Friedrich) Schäfer, all born in Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany. They immigrated to the USA in 1867, settling in Putnam County, Illinois. His parents are buried there. Henry married Amelia Kaiser on February 14, 1882 in Putnam County, and their first three children were born there: Herman, Lena, and Bertha. They then moved to Saline County, Nebraska where the following children were born: Mathilda, Amelia, Henry Jr., Ludwig, and Philipp. Ludwig died at four months, and Philipp shortly after birth. Amelia died four days after giving birth to Philipp. Henry then married Minnie Most in 1894 at the Zion Lutheran Church south of Tobias, Nebraska. They had nine children: Fred, Margaret, Emma, Hannah, Elizabeth, Ernst, Louis, Leonard, and Seibert. All of the children of his second marriage grew to adulthood with the exception of Seibert, who died at age 15 after running into a barbed-wire fence.
