Our earliest knowledge of the Schaefer family begins with George Schaefer (abt 1565 - abt 1635) but the information on the very early members of this family is sparse. The family lived in Hinterweidenthal, Germany.

wife: Ottilia Sieg (April 4, 1640 - December 8, 1728)

children: @ Anthony Schaefer (abt 1676 - 1753)

The Schaefer families were long time residents of Hinterweidenthal, Germany. Johannes Schaefer married Ottilia (April 4, 1640 - December 8, 1728). Ottilia's first name and dates of birth and death are firmly established. Ottilia's last name is believed to be Sieg based on the best evidence from the available documents, but the researcher could not be certain. The couple had a son, Anthony Schaefer (abt 1676 - 1753), our ancestor.

Elisabeth Margaret* Schaefer (1729 - March 2, 1806)

Anthony Schaefer (abt 1676 - 1753) was born in Hinterweidenthal. In 1701 he married N.N. (1678) (abt 1678 - bef 1708) in Hinterweidenthal. The couple had 3 known children, one of whom was our ancestor Johann Heinrich Schaefer (1702 - aft 1772). The records show that Anthony and his family were still in Hinterweidenthal in 1710. He likely moved to Rumbach in 1713 since he paid his first taxes there in 1714 on the property of Valentine* Cuntz which he secured. Anthony died in Rumbach in 1753.

@ Adam Schaefer (abt 1747 - bef 1774)

Johann Heinrich Schaefer (1702 - 1772) was born in Hinterweidenthal and moved with his family to Rumbach in 1713 at the age of about 11 years. In 1732, Johann Heinrich married Anna Maria* Schneider (1709/10 - 1774) which truncated that line of Schnieder in our family tree. The couple had 6 children, one of whom was our ancestor, Adam Schaefer (abt 1747 - bef 1774).

Adam Schaefer (1747 - 1774)

father: Johann Heinrich Schaefer (1702 - aft 1772)

mother: Anna Maria* Schneider (January 19, 1709/10 - November 9, 1774)

wife: Catharina Barbara* Bintz (January 1, 1746/47 - March 4, 1817)

children: @ Maria Elisabetha Schaefer (1773 - 1803)

Adam Schaefer (1747 - 1774) married Catharina Barbara* Bintz (1746/47 - 1817) which introduced the Bintz family into my mother's ancestral line. We will have more to say about this family when we consider their line later in the book. Adam died a young man of about 27, dying the same year that his mother died, 1774. Near the time of his death, however, he and his wife Barbara, conceived a daughter, our ancestor, Maria Elisabetha Schaefer (1773 - 1803).

@ Catharina Barbara Brubach (March 10, 1801 - March 12, 1890)

David Brubach (January 1, 1803 - ?)

On May 13, 1798, Maria Elisabetha Schaefer (1773 - 1803) married Johann Jakob* Brubach (1776 - 1855) who also had some Swiss blood. This marriage truncated the Schaefer name in our family tree. The couple had 3 children, one of whom was Catharina Barbara* Brubach (1801 - 1890) who would later immigrate with her husband Johanne Michael* Jung (May 13, 1802 - December 9, 1879) to Lewisville, Ohio.

..*2nd Wife of Heinrich Bintz:

The Bintz surname has several variants. One of the variants found in the United States is 'Pence' which is a major line in the ancestors of the author's father, Ira Edward Harrington (1898 - 1983). Most of the Bintz and Pence lines can be traced back to a German origin. It is not known whether there is a linkage between the Bintz family of Audra Young's line and the Pence family of Ira Harrington's line. If there is, it would be separated by many generations and the linkage would have most likely been in Germany.

Heinrich (Sr.) Bintz (est. 1650 - ?)

children: @ Heinrich (Jr.) Bintz (abt 1678 - 1742)

We have little data on these Bintz ancestors and essentially no anecdotal information. Heinrich (Sr.) Bintz (est. 1650 - ?) is the oldest of our known Bintz ancestors. He was likely born around 1650. This date of birth is an estimate based on the known date of birth of his son, Heinrich (Jr.) Bintz (abt 1678 - 1742). No other information is known about him.
