Dora [--?--] Schaffner was born 20 September 1838 in Oldenburg, Germany if the age at death is correct.  She married Frederick Schaffner (1828-1899) as his second wife before 1880, probably in San Francisco.  There are no records found to date of any children by this marriage.  

Frederick and his first wife, Martha Matilda (--?--) Schaffner, are my wife's 2nd great-grandparents, through their son Herman Schaffner (1851-1921) who married Mary Ann Paul (1854-1908) in about 1875 and resided in San Francisco.
