Genealogy has become a hobby for me over the last 10 years. For me, it's like a puzzle, I love fitting the pieces together. But over the years, I've researched a lot that does not pertain to our family lines. Some for extended family, some for close friends, and some because I was trying to rule out lines to figure out where our line went exactly. I do not want these notes on my Heather's Genealogy Notes blog - because they are not our lines. But I do like to share all of my research, in case it benefits others. That is what this blog is for - research I have done that does not apply to our own family lines, but may be helpful for someone else.

Mary Ann Schreffler 1853-

This is an attempt to solve who the "aunt" is in the 1900 census, with Mary Etta (Oberdorf) Huddleson.  Mary Etta's mother was Sarah Schreffler, wife of John Christian Oberdorf, and Heather's 3rd great grandmother.  If Mary Ann & Sarah were sisters, there is a 23 year age difference - so I'm not completely convinced just yet.  Not that it matters, since I can find little information on either woman!
