9.  Morton L. Montgomery.  1909.  Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County, Pennsylvania.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago.  On pp. 684-685:
JOHN JACOB SHILLING (deceased) founded a family in Berks County now well known there.  He was born in Chester County, Pa., and came to Berks County when a young man, settling at what is now Shillington.  He owned considerable land there, built numerous dwellings, and for many years owned and conducted the "Three Mile House," where he lived with his family.  He was a man of prominence in his day, and was of striking appearance, being erect, tall, and weighing over two hundred pounds.  He was a member of the Reformed Church.  He married Hannah Straub, whose father was Christian (?) Straub, and to them were born children as follows:  Levi died unmarried when about seventy years of age; Hettie also died unmarried; Samuel, who laid out Shillington and gave it its name ... [see Samuel's page]; Ephraim is mentioned below; Jacob, who was killed in the Civil war, married Mary Bechtel and had one child, who died young; Eliza married Isaac Miller, of Illinois, in which State both died; Isabella died unmarried; Louisa married a Forbs, of Minnesota...

Ephraim Shilling, son of John Jacob, was born Nov. 16, 1822, in Shillington, and lived to his seventy-seventh year, dying Jan. 18, 1899.  There he spent his entire life.  He not only followed farming, but also his trade of pattern making, and turned out many violins of sweet tone; in later years he also engaged in wheel-weighting in connection with farming, cultivating a tract of forty-two acres.  In politics, he was a Republican.  In 1848 Ephraim Shilling married Catharine Marks, daughter of George Marks, and a family of eight children was born to them, namely: Clara m. Frank Welde; Catharine m. Julius Wagner; Elizabeth m. John Gauss; John Jacob m. Sarah Steffey, and (second) Sallie E. Berstler; Alexander E., unmarried, lives at Shillington; Hannah m. Jerome Tompkins; Jane m. Horace R. Carl; Andrew m. Lizzie Kane.  The family was Lutheran in religion.

Christian STRAUB was Hannah's brother; her father was Valentine STRAUB.
