Still trying to locate Adam Shank who was born abt 1837.Have learned he may have been born in Canada.
Adam, (and I'm guessing his family) landed in Michigan at some point,where at the age of 27 he married Adilla E. Crane (my gg grandmother) on May 22, 1864 in the twp of Green, in the county of Mecosta.They had two children known, and possibly a third.Two daughters, Georgia E. (it appears she was raised by her grandparents for most of her life) b abt 1865, and Rebecca Jane Shank (my g grandmother) b. abt 1867.If there was a third child as rumored, it was a son, "Ted" (Theodore ?) have never been able to find him.
Have no idea what happened to Adam Shank, as on March 5th, 1873 Adilla married a Charles Theodore Hemmings.
Does this sound familiar to anyone.I would appreciate any help at all, as I have no other info on Adam, except that he served briefly in the Civil War.Thanks, Bobbi
