    My husband is a descendant of Susannah Shinneberry/Shinnsberry (various spellings of her maiden name appear in the records) and I was wondering if you had any information that would ‘prove’ or disprove our connection. We believe that she is the daughter of John & Mehitable. Susannah married Abraham Blue in Mohican Twp, Wayne County, Ohio.
    Cambria is lovely!
