Information on Richard Shanklin

From post:

Here are Absolem's parents, siblings and their descendents (most recent generation excluded). I haven't gotten around to adding Absolem's line as I am descended from his sister, Catherine, and brother, Robert, and have been focusing there. After the lineage I also provide here Richard's Will. I frequently see the parents (of Absolem and siblings) as William Shanklin & Agnes Davidson, but I think that this was an early research error which has, unfortunately, been relied upon by others:
