Sharon, have you run across an Adam Shankle? Lived in Frederick County, MD in 1800. We find no further record of him. His wife, Christiana Stoffel, died ca 1800 and left two children, George Shankle removed to Washington County, Va with his Stoffel grandparents and Elisabeth Shankle m. Benjamin Atkins and lived in Frederick County in 1820. Thanks
