Henry Schaubach and Andrew Shaubach
and their Descendants


The main source of information for this web page is a genealogy prepared by the Shaubach family, which used to hold annual reunions at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania on Father's Day. This document of 13 legal size pages, mimeographed, produced about 1950, was distributed to family members. It traces all descendants, not just those with the surname. Any family members or possible family members requesting a look up of information from this document, may contact me, Charles Maxfield, at chuckmaxfield@gmail.com


The Schaubach/Shaubach Genealogy begins with this paragraph:
From family tradition and from naturalization records it appears that the progenitors of the Schaubach family came from Hessen Darmstadt, a province of Germany. The record of the family begins with accounts of four brothers. Two of these, Henry and Andrew, settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. A third brother went somewhere to the western part of the United States, but no further information about him is available. A fourth brother (whose name may have been Martin Schaubach) remained in Germany where he died. His widow and six children subsequently came to the United States about the year 1860, settling in Brooklyn, New York. . .
This is a genealogy of four brothers:
  1. HENRY1 SCHAUBACH
  2. ANDREW1 SHAUBACH
  3. (unidentified)1 SHAUBACH
  4. perhaps MARTIN1 SCHAUBACH


Concerning unidentified Schaubach

The largest cluster of Schaubachs west of Pennsylvania, in census records, is in LaSalle County, Illinois. Whether or not these are the descendants of the missing brother, is not determined.


Concerning Spelling
The German spelling of the name is Schaubach. This spelling has been followed by the descendants of Henry. The descendants of Andrew dropped the "c", writing Shaubach. Some documents also read Shawback.
