My great-great grandfather, Robert Shanks, died in Jan. 1900, in Vollmer (now Troy), Latah
Co., ID. His widow, Marion (Smith) is enumerated in the 1900 Federal Census, Mountain
Meadow Precinct, Latah Co.with their youngest 3 children. The Shanks had resided in
Spokane, WA, since the 1880's. Marion & the children returned to Spokane not long
after Robert's death. I am curious about what brought them to Latah County-how long
they lived there, etc. I particularly want to learn Robert's cause of death. I have
been unable to locate a death certificate. Perhaps, there was something in a local paper
that referenced his death?
