Biography

Frederick Shinckle was born around 1726, and lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he worked as a "skin dresser." He and his wife, Salome Hall, married on December 3, 1795, and had at least one son, Frederick Shinckle, Jr. (1761-1806). The elder Frederick Shinckle died on April 22, 1810. His son Frederick worked as a grocer in Philadelphia and married Margaret Hyde (ca. 1769-1797), the daughter of John and Catherine Hyde. They had at least two daughters, Catherine (ca. 1784-1798) and Mary Hyde (b. 1796). Frederick was temporarily absent from his wife and children around May 1790, and they lived with his father.
