  • Notes 
    • Paulina Anna Carolina Arnsmeyer married Frank Guy Truman Schafer in 1904. Paulina was the daughter of Julia Klee and William Arnsmeyer. The Schafer family name is actually Chavers, but was inadvertently changed by a country doctor when Frank's birth certificate was recorded in the 1880's. Frank's heritage was half Cherokee Indian on his mother's side (her name was Henrietta Farmer) and English on the side of his father, a traveling jewelry salesman.
      Although they met and married in Nashsville, Frank and Paulina (affectionately known as Aunt Polly) spent the early years of their married life in Percy, where Mildred Helen was born in 1909, and in Chester where Imogene ("Tootie" was born in 1915. The family moved back to Nashville in 1916 to live in the Arnsmeyer homeplace on Walnut Street. Homer G. was born in 1922 and Frank Cuy, Jr. was born in 1924. Mildred married Raymond Brink and they had two children, Charles Ray, a Nashville resident and Wanda Lee (now Gines and living in Ft. Wayne, Indiana). Imogene married Ralph Wallace of Shelbyville, Illinois in 1934. they had two children, Moren Kleek, now living in New Minden and Trenna Rae (now Grabowski) living in DuBois. Home G. died of a congenital disease as a young man. Frank married Marie Ruchaj and they had two children, Cynthia Jean (now Sanders) living in DuQuoin and Jeffrey Todd, currently attending college.
