I am seeking information on Franklin Glenn SHAFFER and Mamie TIPPY nee SHAFFER. Their parents were George W. SHAFFER and Minnie Ann DAUGHERTY. Both were born near Clark's Hill, Tippecanoe Co., IN. Frank was born June 25, 1879. It was traditional in George's family to call boys by their middle name. I do not know if Glenn carried this tradition into manhood. The point is that a reference to Frank SHAFFER, Glenn SHAFFER or Frank G. SHAFFER may be referring to the same person. Family tradition states that Glenn was a police officer in Marion, Indiana. In 1918 Frank was living in Colburn, Tippecanoe Co., IN. In 1935, he was living in Marion and was married. He died April 1975. His last known residence was Marion, Grant Co., IN.

Little is known about Mamie SHAFFER. She was born after 1888 and before the death of her mother on July 31, 1890. Mamie may have been a nickname, possibly for Mary. Mamie married Jessie TIPPY, and was living in Marion in 1918. Mamie & Jessie were still living in Marion in 1935. Any information would be appreciated.
