Message left below by Cindy G.
I just noticed the message Cindy G. left below about the Shaffer family. She spelled Susan's married name wrong. It is Calef instead of Calif. I know Susan as her daughter and mine went to school together and both played in the school band.

Zylla Portrait
Hi Shelby. I emailed you a portrait that has your great-grandfather in it. Just thought I would let you know in case it goes to your junk mail.

RE: Zylla
According to parish records in Polska Nowa Wieś (A village in Opole County, Poland), Johann's parents were Andreas Zylla (baptized on Feb. 4, 1772 in Polska Nowa Wieś) and Maria Przywara (born about 1777 in Poland) Andreas and Maria were married on Oct. 3, 1797 in Polska Nowa Wieś. At that time Polska Nowa Wieś was part of Germany.

RE: Oscar Guy Shaffer
Guy and Cleo had the following children together. I believe that Cleo had children from a previous marriage but don't know about Guy.
Sally Shaffer was probably born 1953 or 1954, she was two grades ahead of us in school.
Susan Shaffer was probably born 1954, she was one year ahead of Oscar and I in school.
Oscar Guy Shaffer Jr was probably born 1955 as that is the year I was born and we were in the same class at school.
Kenny Shaffer was maybe born in 1956 or 1957 as he was younger than Oscar and I but don't remember how much younger.
Susan's married name was Calif and she lived in Laplata, MO last I knew.
Oscar's wife passed away a few years back and he lived in Queen or Green City area.
Sally and Kenny, I'm not sure about. I used to have their phone numbers but I have since lost them. Hope this helps just a little bit.

Oscar Guy Shaffer
I transferred to you this morning. I knew Guy and Cleo and went to school with thier kids. Guy's son Oscar and I went to all 12 years of school together. Hope all is well with the family and that you have hours of enjoyment working on the Find A Grave site. Try and connect as many people to thier relatives as you can, that helps everyone out that is looking for family members. If you need anything else, email me! Welcome to the fun world of Find A Grave!

Thomas Zylla
Hi Shelby,

I transferred your great-grandfather's memorial to you. Frank Zylla is my great-great grandfather as well, which would make us 3rd cousins.
