Barbara Schaffner Boehmler
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 22, 1819, France
Death: 1913

Barbara's place of birth poses a question of Germany versus France. The 1850 US census for Lyons, Wayne, New York records her place of birth as Germany. The 1860 and 1880 US censuses for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk, Iowa record her place of birth as France. The 1900 and 1910 US censuses for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk, Iowa record her place of birth as Germany.

A possible explanation for this series of discrepancies could be that she was born in Alsace-Lorraine, a province in frequent dispute between France and Germany, that changed hands back and forth through the years, as a result of military conquests.
