Do you know if they had another brother named Wilmer Shinn born around 1884? Wilmer is my grandfather and I am having a hard time finding information on him. He is listed in the 1900 census at 15 years old and living with a Hughes family in Adams, Co IL. I have not been able to find any informatin regarding relatives for Wilmer. I wonder if he was adopted by this family. Also, it is believed that Wilmer had 3 children which were born between 1912 and 1916 and placed in Woodland Home for Orphans in Quincy, IL and I am not able to find any information on them either. Wilmer also had another child, Paul Kenneth Shinn (1933), my father. Wilmer did not raise Paul either, but a half sibling raised Paul.
