Re: Samuel Shook ~ Ohio and Iowa
Can you identify a John Samuel SHOOK?Somebody dropped off cemetery markers for John Samuel SHOOK (1888 - 1941) & John WOLCOTT (1884 - 1941) at the historical society in Mitchell, Davison Co., SD.
There was no SHOOK land patent for Davison Co., but to the south was a John SHOOK who patented land in Hutchinson Co., Twp. 98 - 60, Section 21 SE, per BLM.
Sioux City is over a hundred miles away, but there might be a connection to the clipping Sioux Valley, Woodbury Co., IA, 1885, that accused a Samuel SHOOK of Cherokee of bigamy, having left a wife in Ohio.
Do you have any clue about a John Samuel SHOOK?
