I have researched the Shinpaughs for many years. I have focused on the descendants while another cousin, John Shinpaugh, has focused on the ancestors.John has done a wonderful job. I descended from William Shinpaugh in Knox County Tennessee, and John from his brother, Henry Shinpaugh.
John has researched our family name back to 1700's,the name Schoenbacher and to a area, Markt St. Martin. At the time our ancestors left, this area was considered Austria-Hungary. As I am sure you are aware, boundary lines have changed over the years. John and I are always willing to share anything we have with anyone. Also, John has published an article on Lorenz Schoenbacher. Let me know your interests and please use full names, parents' names and date of birth.
