the following message was received from Cyndy Shreffler
"My friend, Norm Shreffler of Baton Rouge says that Roger Shreffler's dad, Arthur Shreffler served in the Spanish American War. Arthur was the son of Aaron Shreffler, and Aaron was the son of Peter Shreffler. Peter was the son of John Henry Shreffler (called Henry), and Henry was the son of the first immigrant, Johann Heinrich Schreffler (called Heinrich or Henry). I think that is all of the generations of Roger's line. The reason that there are so few generations is that Peter was one of the youngest sons in his family. Aaron's generation was the Civil War generation, and Arthur's generation was the Spanish American War generation (late 1890s).
Through the Veterans Administration, there is a nationwide gravesite locator for people buried in military cemeteries. Note that some are spouses of people who served in military. I found Roger SHREFFLER, who was a radio operator in the CNAC. Roger SHREFFLER was originally from Illiniois, but he moved to Tennessee. He is not a close relative, but I do SHREFFLER genealogy. The last that I knew, his wife, June SHREFFLER still lives in Tennessee. Roger died in 1998.
