The Shinley Family of Central Arkansas
NOTES PAGE FOR
Shinley Schindler , Charles Augustus
Shinley, Charles Augustus
Born in about 1841. Calculated from marriage record.
Was a private in the Union Army enlisting in the 1st District of Columbia Infantry.
Injured at the battle of Bull Run.
Note that a picture of a "James S. Shinley" is displayed at the Arkansas Post Museum below Gillette Ar. He is said to have been from White County-Corporal in Medical Corp, 1st Ark-Regiment. Buried in Massey Cemetery. A search for Massey Cemetery found one in White County and one in Arkansas County just below Tichnor. Upon visiting these cemeteries I(David Shinley) found no matching grave stone in either. However, in the one near Tichnor, Ar. I did find a stone inscribed as follows: CORPL. JA S. SCHINDLER CO.A. IMO. S. M. INF. Arkansas Post Museum personnel could not tell me the origin or any other information about the picture.
In 1998, a tin type picture and negative found in John S. Shinley's trunk at his last known residence was compared to the photograph from Ar. Post and the two men were found to resemble to a high degree.
01.14.00 Arkansas County Courthouse in Dewitt, Ar while doing a general search of probate records (David Shinley) found an entry in Book "H-1" on page 628 as follows:
Dated in the margin of the previous page Nov.
N. B. Price Guardians
Now on this day was presented to the court the Bond of N. B. Price as Guardian of Ida, Ada, and John Schindler heirs of Charles Schindler deceased which bond is in the sum of Five Hundred Dollars and conditioned according to law with B. N. Ward as security thereon, And it appearing to the court that said bond is sufficient the same is hereby approved and the action of the Clerk hereof in vacation in approving said bond and issuing said letters be the same is in all things approved.
With four first names matching, the time
frame and location reasonable, and with the prior strong suggestion that
"Schindler" was the real name of the "Shinley" in the Ar. Post photograph;
I(David Shinley) am convinced that "Charles Augustus Shinley" and the "Charles
Schindler" referenced above are the same person.
Also found on 01.14.00 was a marriage record dated Feb. 14 1873 where August Schindler of Ar. Co. aged 32 years married Nancy D. Goodrich of Ar. Co. aged 24 years. This is in Book C on page 341. H. M. Schaad, J.P. performed the wedding. filed for record August 6th of 1873 and recorded August 16th of 1873.
While August Schindler has not as of 01.14.00 been shown to be Charles Augustus Schindler, It is my assumption that they are the same person and I will continue my research looking for that proof.
