Her maiden name for this wedding was Sarah E. RUSINGER (REISINGER). She had a child named Alice 12/1854 - some records show Daniel Jr. died in 1857?

MYERS, SHANK posted by David Shank on Saturday, November 30, 1996

I have a relative named David SHANK who was married to Lydia MYERS, probably in Maryland and in the early 1800's. I have a record of David administering the estate of his mother-in-law Sarah MYERS in Paris Twp.of Stark Co. Ohio in 1845. She had died there at the age of 84 and my great-great grandfather also aided in the estate. His name was Jacob MYERS. It appears that David and Lydia are living in Crawford Co., Cranberry Twp. in 1850 according to the census. I also read in the History of Crawford Co. 1881 that a David SHANK built the infirmary at a reformatory there in the 1860's. I can follow them into the 1860 and 1870 census, but it appears they move westward to VanWert Co. and I lose track of them....any help on this branch would be appreciated. Thank you, Dave MYERS, North Canton,
