Looking for ancestors of Elizabeth Shanks b. 8-17-1810 in Virginia, d. 4-4-1893 IN, married in Athenes, Ohio 4-6-1828 Hiram Gibbs b. 12-2-1802 Vermont and died 5-20-1847 IN. Elizabeth may be the daughter of Jacob and Celia Shanks who were listed in the 1830 Athens Co. Ohio census in the same are as Hiram and Elizabeth. Jacob and Celia were of the right age to parents of Elizabeth. I know that there were some Shanks families living in Rockingham County, VA.
