  • Notes 
    • Henrietta was three years old in the Illinois 1860 census.
      A copy of a portion of "GENEALOGY OF SOME EAST TENNESSEE FAMILIES OF THE EARLY 19TH CENTURY" compiled by Ruth Ritchie in 1945 contains what information we have on Henrietta and her family. They believe she is descendent of Nathan Farmer but can not prove it as yet. If so, this print out contains Farmer information back for several more generations.
      Pages 24 and 25 of the supplement to the above mention genealogy book have Henrietta's family information.
      Her grandfather supposedly was full blooded Cherokee Indian. Frank Guy Schafer, Jr. shared with Wanda Gines in later years that he and his siblings were the last descendents of Henrietta that could live on a reservation if they chose to do so.
      After her husband's death, someone in Richview took her in and they raised Frank Guy Schafer, their only child.
      On September 22, 1986, Aunt Tootie Wallace shared with Wanda Gines that Henrietta Farmer in later life, after Joseph Chaver was gone, and Frank Guy was raised, married Frank Rogers. He had one son by a previous marriage named Ira Rogers. Frank Rogers was the only grandpa that Tootie, Mildred and Frank Guy,Jr. knew.
      The old Edison Victrola that Mildred Schafer Brink gave to her daughter Wanda had belonged to Frank Rogers. Mildred remembered being at their home and putting the phonograph in the window with it open. All the neighbors gathered around outside to listen to the cylinder records.
      After Frank Rogers died, Henrietta lived with Frank Guy and Pauline Schafer. She was nearly blind and later on her mind was bad. Ira stayed in Rogers house. (I barely remember Ira - he had an open, terrible looking cancerous sore on his face.)
    • Wanda Gines: GenForum entry on April 2, 2004

      I was always told I have Cherokee blood. My great grandmother, Henrietta Farmer Chaver, was supposed to be the grand daughter of a full-blood cherokee. My grandfather had proof including all the paper work. His wife was very prejudiced against the Indians and after her husbands death, burned everything. I've been searching ever since but unsuccessfully. My Chaver was Joseph Chaver. He was supposedly killed in a tornady in Murphysboro, Illinois in 1925. He was a jewelry salesman. His possessions and body were never found
