My Great Grandfather is Jacob Shook,(born in 1878) He married Winifred Campbell abt 1902. Jacob's father was Ebenezer Shook,born abt 1852. Ebenezer married Laura Smith,date unknown. Ebenezer's father was Henry Shook, born abt 1827. He married Eliza A. ?(maiden name unknown) All of my ancestors were in the dutchess county area. I think Henry's father is Jacob or Jacobus Shook, born abt 1750. He married a woman named Anna Kuntz abt 1778. I have a partial family tree done by a cousin that shows your John Shook Sr and his 3 children, Homer,John Jr, and Virgil. It shows his father to be Harry Shook. according to this tree, Harry, and my great great grandfather Ebenezer, were brothers. Was Harry a nickname, or his given name? Do you know who Harry's father is? Is it Henry? I would like to talk to you in more depth about all these questions I have. Please E-mail me as soon as you have time. thanks ahead of time for your help!
