As I said on the reply for your Miller family, this group is a tough one to track.Keep inmind as you read this reply that their ages jump around & their place of birth changes with each census but I believe it is your King family group. Seems your William H. King was really born 30 Oct 1896 per his WW1 Draft Registration.
Looks like your John Shadrick King was really
Johnson Shadrack King or Shadrack Johnson King depending on the census year. You have it spelled Shadrick but I have never seen it spelled that way. It was common for the two first names to get switched around.
Keep an open mind and you will see how the 'dots connect'. Such as William's sister Mabel md a Walter Guy.And you mentioned in another query a Burnhart connect, William's sister Jessie M. md George Barnhart. I will add my notes at the bottom of each census year. If you want a nice clean copy of this reply, just go to the bottom of the page and click on 'print message' and then click 'print'.It will print out a copy without all the graphics and with date,my email printed at the top.Nice to put in your research binder for future reference.

Although J. S. King is listed as married, their is no wife listed. All relationships refer to head of household. Walter Guy is his son in law.Mable was listed daughter but wife was written over it.Mable is the daughter of J. S. King and the wife of Walter Guy. The 3 young kids are their children. In error William H & Joseph are written here as if their surname is Guy but it should be King. Both being the sons of J. S. King. This is supported by the 1900 census listing below.
1910: I cannot locate William King with his parents.But on William's 1918 WW1 Draft registration he lists Jennie King as his closest relative.No notation is listed to show how they are related.But Jennie is used as a nickname for Virginia often, I wonder if he was living with his mother?? On the 1910 PA census William's father S.J. King has married again a very young women.Or maybe William was married before he married Myrtle Guy??

*notice now S. J. King is listed as born in MD. He is with another wife. Although this shows him as married twice, this really is his 3rd wife. Living next door is his two married daughters. In h/h 104 relationship of the Guy family is referring to head of household, George Barnhart.
The 1900 census is where it all comes together. And you can tell this is the same man as J.S. King or S.J. King on the prior censuses by his age & names/ages of his children.

All listed as born in PA. Not sure about the McK on William's name. They ran out of room to write more.Maybe his name was William H. Mc----- King, having two middle names?The only thing consistant with Shadrack is his age, his place of birth has now been listed as MD,PA,WV.

relationships are not noted on the 1870 census. But we know from the 1880 that Mary A. is his wife.
S. Johnson King 23
son of Jesse King & Lucinda
married Mary Ann Welch 37
29 Nov 1869
WV, Mineral County
From the Marriage records of Mineral County, WV.
This is where the 'connect the dots' comes in. Really lucked here. He is listed as S. Johnson King (with an age) on his marriage record. Listed as Shadrack J. King on the 1870 census & S. J. King on the 1880 census....So you can tell its all the same man. And you have his parents names now.Shadrack married a woman 14 years older and based on the census records they had no children together.May be why he didnt 'count' this marriage.

This is the parents & siblings of Shadrack Johnson King. Jessie is indexed as Isac but when I viewed the film image it looked more like Jessie to me.
Susan M. (26) md Henry Solomon (28) 18 sept 1882 in Mineral Co, WV. I believe this Ruhanna (?) is a miss spelling and is really the same Anna J. King d/o of Jessie & Lucinda King that md Samuel T. White 07 Feb 1877 in WV, Mineral County. Anny on the 1860 census.

All listed as born in VA.The ages of Johnson, Israel, Susan &Anny are goofed up here. The 1870 & 1880 census ages are most correct.

I copied this just as written. Saml should be listed before Israel based on age. It is my thought that the census taker added this Saml 3 as an after thought.Maybe he was not sure how to spell the name??? Anyway, this should be your Johnson Shadrack King 3 bn MD. Based on info from the Familysearch.org site, Lucinda's father was named Samuel, sooooo maybe she wanted to name him after her father?Hard to know for sure.

It is hard to believe that no one has posted any trees for this KING family group.I have checked all tree sites I know of and found nothing. But here they are for you...guess you will be the first to solve the mystery of this family. Since Johnson Shadrack King is still alive for the 1920 (73) you should be able to find a death record for him.The hard part will be trying to figure out how his name is listed on the record so they can look for him. Infact you should be able to find his marriage record there to Blanche & the death record for Adie/Ida King (William's mother).
Death records are nice but remember they are filled out by someone else; errors/ommissions are common.I would send for a copy of the original Social Security application on William Henry King. This form is filled out by him. His parents should be listed on it and with luck, the maiden name of his mother. I have included the names of the spouses of for some of these people so you can use them on your searches.Never know where the next clue will come from.
