When they moved to Michigan in 1899 there were several musical instruments in the family
By the year 1955, Linn,
the 1st child of George and Hannah Sheckler, had the guitar,
2 sets of musical wood bones
and a banjo.
Harold Sheckler, 2nd child
of George and Hannah Sheckler
had the violin.
Basic Banjo Construction
When I got the banjo out of house attic at Hutchins Lake, it was in a case. Our moving some 20 times caused a little damage and the case fell apart.
