Melissa E Beckwith was born 11 December 1869, the last of four children born to Joseph Beckwith & Rosanna (Shook) Silvis Beckwith. Her three older siblings were: Magdeline (Mrs. William Bonsall), William Bowman Beckwith, and Rosanna (Mrs. Garrett Rowe).

Melissa married Abraham Shook. The couple had (at least) five children: Frank M, Mabel, Hazel, Clayton and Leaffia May (or Leatha).

I do not know when Abraham passed away, but Melissa is a widow in the 1930 census in Faribault.

Melisa died 05 November 1948 in Faribault, Minnesota, and was laid to rest in Maple Lawn Cemetery.
