This is my great grandfather John Anderson Shannon (First from left, standing). I am trying to find out who his parents were or anything else about his family. He said he was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1875 and that he moved to Wayne County, Richmond, Indiana at some point in his childhood or as a young man. He said he was raised by his grandparents Wilhelmina Nieske Droste and Bernhardt Droste, both from Germany. He also said that he had a sister named Blanche Shannon who married Edward Faske and that had a daughter named Irene Faske. His Shannon and Nieske family seems to have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio and also in or around Newport, Kentucky. Does anyone have any information that might help me to find his family? I have a brick wall. The little boy, sitting in front with the dog, is Elmer Shannon, John Anderson Shannon's son. The man standing at the right in back is unidentified, but his last name may be Stolle.
