I've "rescued" an old photograph of Eldon D. SCHOCK which was taken at the
Barkhurst Studio in Beatrice, Nebraska. The photograph appears to have been
taken in the early 1900's with Eldon likely about 7-11 years old at the
time. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following
information regarding Eldon and his family:
Eldon D. SCHOCK was b. 9 Sept 1892 in Blue Springs, NE to parents Joel C.
SCHOCK or SCHOCH (1851-1918) and Caroline Elizabeth ULSH (1861-1939). Eldon
was one of four children born to this couple including, James Edward; Mary
E.; Benjamin Franklin; and Eldon D. SCHOCK born between 1879 and 1892. Eldon
married twice, first to Mary Belle CLARK (b. 1895) on 18 Jul 1923 in Brown,
SD and 2nd to Florence Annie FRYER (1911-1999) on 21 Jan 1971.
Eldon had two children with his first wife. Eldon d. 25 Oct 1992 in
Seattle, WA and is buried in Moscow, ID in the Moscow Cemetery.
