William Shillingburg Family Genealogy

This is a photo of Donald Metzger Shillingburg (left) (1895-1950), fifth generation descendant of William and Margaret Shillingburg. He, along with most of his siblings, children of Thomas Edward Shillingburg and Evelyn (Lina) Chisholm, left Gormania, West Virginia, to find their fortune in the unsettled West. Many became traders focusing on the Indian Reservations of Arizona and New Mexico. This photo was probably taken near Ganado, Arizona, between 1912 and 1915.
