I'm searching for my g-grandfather, William B Schenck, born in Dover(?) NJ in 1883 (or possibly 1882).His parents were Henry H Schenck and Elizabeth Tidd Williamson.As of the 1900 census, they were living in Raritan Township, Middlesex County, NJ.
He married Alinda Long, May 1905.They lived in Dunellen Borough, Middlesex County, NJ. She kicked him out when she found he was 'playing the field', and he left the family with 4 children - sometime around 1913-1915.That's where the trail pretty much stops.There was one meeting with him - around 1918(?) when he was in the hospital in Newark, having been injured in some sort of construction accident involving his work with the railroad.Apparently there were one or two boys there also, who looked just like his sons from his earlier marriage - possibly a second family?
