I'm looking for the family of Lewis Shanklin. He lived in Illinois,later in Des Moines, Iowa and Kansas City, Kansas, finally in Portland, Oregon.He lived sometime in the mid-to-late-1800's.

He married Melinda (Amanda) Antrim, and they had 13 children. Five of their names were Hester Rebecca, Fannie, Minnie, Jessica and Bander (Alexander?).
The family was very musical, playing several instruments, having their own band, singing professionally and being piano tuners.
Ring any bells with anyone?
