my gr grandmother was Laura Evalena Bunney... your Joseph's daughter... my daughter is named for her. Yes Princeton is in Latah county, Idaho. ... pls see my tree for info on your Joseph ... http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/16252539/person/357569286
aShook Russell Trotter & Bunney tree : Joseph 1835 Bryant Bunney, Great Dalby, Leicestershire, England. He is my gr gr grandfather.
There is a Shook I have been looking for....
I have been trying to figure out who Joseph Shook's father is... census indicates both of Joseph's parents were from Pennsylvania
Joseph Shook Shuck my gr gr grandfather: Born ABT 1830 in Pennsylvania; died 24 September 1898 Lamar, Chase, Nebraska. married to Mary Ann McCabe 16 Mar 1858 in Chillicothe, Ross, Ohio: born 22 Oct 1840 Colerain, Ross, Ohio; died 13 Oct 1934 Lawrence, Kansas
his son, my gr grandfather, Albert Eric Shook: Born 20 Jan 1867 in Indiana; Died 5 Oct 1931 Princeton, Latah, Idaho. married Laura Evalena Bunney 10 May 1894 prob. in Benton, Wayne, Iowa: born 30 Mar 1878 Harrison, Missouri; died Dec 1978 Wieser, Idaho
his son, my grandfather, Grant Lawrence Shook: born 18 Feb 1895 in Atlanta, Phelps, Nebraska; died 29 Jun 1931 in Potlatch, Idaho. married Jessie Russell 1922 in Princeton, Idaho: born 28 Oct 1903 Sandstone, Pine, Minnesota; died 28 Jan 1997 Everett, Washington.
I can find no documents that show Joseph's father ... there are a couple probables, which range from Philadelphia to Allegheny county... the difficulty I encounter is that the census from first half of the 1800s just shows numbers in the household rather than names...
anyone have thoughts, ideas or illumination on this?
