Notes from Mary (Confer) Shaffer:
My Father lived at home with Parent`s , Got married and stayed there to care for his sick Mother. After hed Death my parents moved to Dewart Pa. and Farmed a farm along the river rasing tomatoes and potatoes. They then moved to A red brick house on the Montandon side of covered bridge and did custom farming. Uncle Pete and Aunt Mary Louise lived with us for a while after returning from service.We then moved across the covered to the other side and lived in the red brick house back the lane on left side.(Most recent owner was Homer and Beverly Snyder) Dad did farming for Oakley Simington and O.P.Van Kerk.
