Pauline lived with her grandmother Martha Emily Pait McMillan until her father Ralph Waldo Smith remarried to Laura Govero. He took Pauline back to live with him when she was 12. At age 18, Pauline married Bill Englis in 1939. They lived at RR #1, Maplewood IL in November 1943. Together Pauline & Bill Englis had four children1) Lana Lee Englis (Lynn Marie Ackerman Stewart)2) Robert Dale Englis (Thomas Orr)3) Linda Lou Englis (Mary Ann Pazderka Malone Klosterman)4) Michael Perry - Age and whereabouts unknown. Born either before 1943 or after August 1947.In mid 1947, the aforementioned children were removed from the home by the state of Illinois and subsequently Pauline and Bill divorced. All three children were adopted into separate homes. They did not know of each others existence until the late 1980's. In early 1948, Pauline met and presumably married Charles Lewis Schaefer. At that time she began using the middle name Elaine with a birth year of 1917. Together Pauline & Charles Schaefer had five children.5) Richard Lewis Schaefer (Richard Lewis Williams)6) Robert Frank Schaefer7) Charlene Fay Schaefer (Sherry Elizabeth Hoock Duffy)8) Arlene Kay Schaefer (Heather Elisabeth Burham McCarthy)9) Jack David Schaefer (Jack David Owens) Richard & Robert are fraternal twins born in Harris County, Texas.

Richard, Robert & Jack all new of each other growing up but had lost touch a few times through the years. They also knew there were other siblings to find.
