My family is in the process of trying to track down my great grandfather.
His name in all of the records is John S Shannon.However we were told that he changed his last name from SIsco to Shannon as he supposedly killed a man.My family has been searching for some time, I am just now picking up the search to try and trace our roots.
John is believed to have been born in Ohio, we have several different dates of birth from Census reports and his death certificate so not sure which to believe but have included that information below.
The 1900 Census shows his birth date as Sept 1863 but his death certificate says his DOB is 12/7/1852.
if anyone has information that can help us, we would appreciate it.
