This photo of the Joseph Schafer family was taken in front of a corn
field near Fulda, Ohio about 1900. The picture was graciously
provided by Leander Crock of Noble County, who is the great-nephew
of Joseph and Catherine Schafer.
Joseph Schafer and Catherine Fisher had eight children, two of
whom (Emma and Frieda) were born after this photograph was taken.
They have over 100 known descendants.
