From the continuing research of : Emily Matthews


    In the first couple of decades of the nineteenth century the Shinalt and related families started their
westward trek from Virginia toward southern Illinois. A stopover was in Tennessee during the next decade,
before the continuation to south central Illinois between 1830 and 1840. During this decade their time was
mainly in and around the Bond and Clinton County area. Washington County beckoned them, and that is
where some descendants are today.
