Shinabarger Family History
It is unconfirmed as to the origins of the first generation of Shinabargers on American soil. It is thought my Shinabarger ancestors immigrated from Germany sometime in the 1760s.
QUESTION TO BE SOLVED: Are the Shinabarger, Shinabarger, Shinaberry families of 1760-1800 Ohio related and if so HOW? This has stymied researches for decades. It appears the surnames are related but until the patriarch is established (John or his father), it will be impossible to establish this connection with certainty.
