      Note: George Frederick Shaffer came to America on the ship "Snow
      Betsie" 27 Aug 1739. He was a Hessian soldier for the British
      Army who fought in the French & Indian War and was a 1st Lt. in
      the Revolutionary War. He took the Oath of Allegiance in
      Pennsylvania. Most of the Hessian soldiers later decided to
      remain in America and fought against the British in the
      Revolutionary War. This is what our ancestor decided to do. He
      resided in Berks Co., Pa. later moving to the Pine Grove
      Community of Shenandoah Co., Va. some time before 1775. He
      attended the Pine Lutheran Church in Shenandoah. This church was
      one of the oldest Lutheran churches, probably built as early as
      1760 and the meeting house for the entire community. In 1793 he
      was a member of Solomon's Lutheran Church, Forestville,
      Shenandoah Co., Va. Rev. Paul Henkel was the pastor and the
      majority of the members were formerly associated with Pine
      Church (St. Mary's)
