Hello Nelson, My name is Darlene Steffens and Elias Shinn was my second great-grand Uncle. I too have been conducting extensive research on descendants of Samuel Shinn, who I believe was Elias's father, although the famous Shinn book doesn't make that connection. I am the 3rd great-granddaughter of Samuel through his son Amos Wesley Shinn (Elias's next older brother). I agree that Emily and Elias married in Ohio as you say, although I only had Morgan County and they had a large family of 11 children where your Mary Luetta was their youngest. I would be interested in learning more about Emily's "doctoring" story. Do you perhaps have her obituary? Any information about Elias that you may have is also of interest to me. Would you happen to have his obituary? I have to offer a slight disagreement with where you say they are buried. The book "Cemeteries of Lawrence County, Illinois" by Bessie Irene Black, pub 1976 has it that Elias, Emily and their youngest son Charles are all buried in the Otterbein Cemetery, Lawrence Co., Illinois. Would we have different/conflicting sources? I am excited about possibly exchanging information with you and your brother. My research has lead me to learn that a number of Elias and Emily's offspring were interesting prople indeed. My personal email is I welcome you to write.
