I am searching for information about ancestors of William Wallace Shoch, born 1843 in a log cabin in York, PA, and wondered if there was some relationship.He became a telegrapher in Philadelphia by learning from his older brother, George, who was reputed to invent a telephone 2 years before Bell. He moved to Rowlesburg, WV, When the Civil War began, he, Carnegie and Edison offered their services to Lincoln and became volunteers under his special command. I would appreciate any information about his possible ancestry.
