Bio and Links
Bio Photo The story goes that I was born in the alley behind the original Marcus Daly Hospital. Dad didn't quite make it there in time. The family was picniking on the Montana Idaho line up the west fork. Went to school in Hamilton, Baker Creek (up the West Fork), Victor and Darby. Am retired and started doing genealogy about nine years ago. I find Cemeteries very interesting and have made a couple of trips out of state to take pictures of grave markers. One trip to Minnesota with great results and one trip to Idaho.
The names I am most interested in are Shook, Greenup, Overturf, Stanley, Gaffney and Kent as these are my direct line of ancestors. In-laws Schaffers and ancestors.

RE: Shook family
Arlene Shook Nicol is my grandchildren's grandmother along with Bob Nicol the grandfather.

Igot most of my info on the Nicol side etc from Bob who was doing all of the families also.
I do have the Shook's back to 1766 in Maryland and Indiana.

my email is smithdot84@gmail.com

I had an email from Rosie Shook just the other day.
We do keep in touch along with Kim Zacha.

One thing I did find was there was a David Shook who was a Loyalist with 1F/2children who mustered out in Digby, NS 19 May 1784.
And in 1801 there was still 4 in the family.

What I love is that John Shook 1766 married a Arrana Porter b 1767 also in Maryland.

My mother was a Porter and no one and I mean even those born in the early 1800's knew where or who is parents were.

Shook family
my grandkids grandparents were Dee and Ilda (Hess) shook and I would love to connect to you. I have the Hess family way back a lot of Ilda!!
and others that were in Darby, Hamilton, Corvalis and Missoula.
I lived in Hamilton and Corvalis.
I have also when some came from Michigan in a wagon train and have a book on the brothers were one was captured by the Indians. There is a statue of one of them either in Billings or Bozeman.
Right now my books etc are in a Pod as we are upgrading the inside of the house and that will be for a few more weeks.

hi constance - I filled your request for Mary Shook and while I was there I found her buried next to another Shook or two. I uploaded the picture for Earl. It was a better shot than the one you had. Just wanted to let you know so if you wanted to delete the bad one you might do so. I think I also saw and photographed one for Ezra Shook? I will look and see if he is listed here and upload that photo as well. It was a pleasure looking up your relatives and ancestors. have an awesome day. Sincerely, Dori
