This family's ancestry appears to be German (since they attended the German Reformed Church in Ohio). In German, the surname is spelled "Schreiner", most records other than the Church records, however, use the spelling "Shriner". Some records also spelled the name "Sriner", a spelling later adopted by some branches.
