> WHAT I KNOW ABOUT THE SHRAUNER FAMILY:
> We are SWISS. Johanne Sebastian SCHRANER was born in 1809 in Butz, Sulz,
> Switzerland. He married Mary Magdalena MEYER in 1837. They had at least
> two children. Jacob (possibly John) and Franz Sales. They applied to
> Switzerland in 1854, and according to a family Bible, arrived in the US
> August 15, 1854.
> Now here is the first question--The Swiss archives says that they
> in 1859. I'm wondering if the 4 in 1854 might not look like a 9.
> to Swiss information, Franz was born in 1852, and was supposed to have
> about age 4 when they arrived, which doesn't fit either date, but is
> to 1854.
> The next date that I find is for the 1860 federal census for Adams Twp.,
> Seneca Co., Ohio. Sebastian and family are living and working on the farm
> Melchoir Vrath. Franz is age 10 and going by the name Francis. This
> also make a case for the immigration date of 1854, since his age at
> immigration was 4 years old. Jacob is not found with them. Family tree
> maker states that he went off to fight in the Civil War and never
> Next is the the marriage of 'Frank SHRANER' to Mary Catherine BRUNER, 2
> 1875 in Tiffin, Seneca Co., Ohio. and the birth of William Henry on 13
> 1876. Then according to the family Bible the entire family left Ohio and
> went to Kansas in 1877. I don't know if the 'entire family' included
> Sebastian and Mary. I have not found any further information on them.
> According to Family Tree Maker, Frank walked from Wichita, to Stafford
> County to claim a homestead about 8 1/2 miles SE of the present town of
> Stafford. They also state that he was known for his stubbornness and he
> refused to pay taxes, therefore loosing his land.
> In the 1880 census the name is spelled SHRANNER. By this time Myrtle and
> Edward have been born. Later would come Harry , James, Robert, Sarah,
> Samuel, Daniel and Susan. I have pretty complete information on all of
> children's lines except Myrtle. She married a man named Jim SIMS, they
> once in Ponca City, OK and that is all that I have been able to learn
> My mother is Gladys Irene, the daughter of Edward and his wife Daisy Vera
> TITUS. She married my father Verne PEARSALL. They moved to Washington
> State during the depression and they are both still living in the
