Rheumma is a daughter of Thomas Harper and Barbara Schaeffer. Barbara is a daughter of William Schaeffer and Margaret Beck of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. William died there and Margaret went to Steuben County, Indiana, where several of her children lived.
Would like death and burial information on Thomas Harper, Barbara, and Rheumma Harper Werkheiser.
We will share all Beck and Schaeffer / Shaffer / Sheaffer information.
