Birth: May, 1860
Illinois, USA
Death: 1862
Cook County
Illinois, USA

The third of three children of Heinrich and Philippine Schneider [Schenk] Shank, he was born in Northfield Township of Cook Co. IL. He died between June 1860 and 1871, but does not appear with records of his mother's second marriage (1863) so this death date is likely. His father died in spring of 1862.

Place of burial is not certain, but many other family members are in North Northfield Cem. The family name spelling was changed about the time of his death. Most records are spelled SHANK.

Corrections are welcome.
