    Elijah Shinkle enumerated:

    1 male 5-10 yrs old (William)
    1 male 20-30 yrs old (Elijah)
    1 female 0-5 yrs old (Barbara Jane Shinkle)
    1 female 5-10 yrs old (Sarah)
    1 female 20-30 yrs old (Matilda Elizabeth)

    Some researchers believe this Elijah Shinkle married Talitha Elizabeth Shrum in Barry Co., Mi ssouri, in 1875. However, Ms. Shrum married a younger Elijah Shinkle. They appear in the 18 80 Barry Co., Missouri census, page 326D, living in Roaring River. Elijah is 32; Eliza is 20 . They have 2 daughers: Ermenie, 4; and, Annie L., 1. My Elijah Shinkle's age would have be en between 69/70 in 1880.




    Father: John Henry (Johannes Heinrich) SHINKLE b: 6 DEC 1780 in Berks or Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania

    Marriage 1 Matilda Elizabeth "Malinda" COURTNEY b: JUN 1811 in Washington Co., Virginia
    • Married: AFT. JUL 1830 in Indiana or Ohio? 14
    • Note: Marriage couldn't take place in Dade Co., MO, because this county didn't exist until 1841. It was formed from Barry & Polk Cos. Checked both counties' marriage records & nothing found. Both Barry & Polk Cos. were not formed until 1835 from Greene County (after Elijah & Matilda were married).
