Note: This article was written about George Shack, Grandson of James McGhee GEORGE W. SHACK LILLY WHITE ROLLER FLOUR VINTON, OHIO This is printed on a flour sack we have kept in our family for over one hundred years. The sack is made of heavy paper, it is red, white and blue and has a picture of the Vinton Woolen Mills and the Roller Flour Mills owned by my great-greatgrandfather George Shack. The sack has been handed down from his daughter Virginina Shack Matthews to my grandmother Vennie Matthews Butler, to my parents John William and Leola Butler of Wellston, Ohio. George W. Shack was the son of John D. and Mary A. (McGhee) Shack. John D. was born in Pennsylvania about 1810 and emigrated to Columbiana county, Ohio in 1831. Shortly after moving to Gallia County he started to Louisville, Ky. and was neverheard of again. He left his wife with two children George W. and Margaret. George Shack's mother Mary A. (McGhee) Shack was one of ten children born to James A. and Margaret McGhee, who were natives of Ireland. James McGhee was born July 4,1783 and emigrated to the United States when a boy and settled in Columbiana Co., Ohio. James and Mary had the following children: Mary A., Margaret, Emeline, Catherine, Almira, Eliza, Jackson, James, Alexander and John. They moved to Vinton in1832 to engage in the milling business. George Shack was but six weeks old when his parents moved to Vinton along with his grandparents, and at the time of his death had resided in Vinton longer than any other resident. Mr. Shack's occupation as a miller was inherited from his maternal ancestry. His grandfather James McGhee had worked in various mills in Pennsylvania, and in 1832 purchased the Vinton mill from John Adney for $3,000.00. In 1857 Mr. McGhee soldthe mill to his grandson George Shack and his partner A. B. Hamilton. The elaborate mill not only ground grain but also carded wool and sawed timber. Despite a disastrous fire, the mills were rebuilt and as late as 1874 the firm George W. Shackand Asher B. Hamilton were manufacturing woolen yarn. In 1887 Mr. Hamilton sold his interest to Mr. Shack who continued to operate the mill until his death in 1908. There have been many other men who owned the mill for short periods of time,among them my Grandfather Harold Coulter. The history of the mill is an interesting one. Finally the mill burned to the ground in the autumn of 1976. Submitted by Ann Turner

Note: This biography was written about Leonard Q. Skelton, Great-Grandson of James McGhee. L. Q. SKELTON, cashier of the Bank of Boulder and mayor of that city, was born on a farm near the village of Augusta, Carroll county, Ohio, on September 21, 1863, and was the third child in a family of nine sons and daughters of Jason and MarySkelton, poor but worthy and estimable people of that community, both of whom are now deceased. L. Q., as he was always familiarly called, was educated in the village school, Damascus Academy, a Quaker institution, the University of Ohio at Athens, and the Northeastern Ohio Normal College, working at whatever he could find to do in vacationseasons to enable him to continue his studies as far as was practicable. He taught school after leaving college, studying law in the meantime, and married Flora Manfull, of Augusta, Ohio, after which he moved to Montana and located at Boulder in1890. There he took charge of the city schools, such as they were at the time, and organized the high school, building up the entire system to a splendid state of efficiency, and continued in charge until he resigned in 1895 to assume aresponsible position in the Bank of Boulder. Since that time Mr. Skelton has held every position in the bank except that of president, and he is now cashier of the institution, a position which he has held for many years. The Bank of Boulder isknown to be one of the soundest and most stable banking institutions in the state of Montana, and does a business of half a million dollars. It practically represents the life work of Mr. Skelton, of which he may be justly proud. Mr. Skelton is a staunch Republican, and has always been prominent in the public affairs of his town and county, being mayor of Boulder at the present time. He affiliates with the Episcopal church, in which he is bringing up his only child -- adaughter, Miss Mary Isabelle -- and is a Free Mason. Aside from the latter, he has no other fraternal connections. In his successful career, Mr. Skelton effectively illustrates the possibilities open to an energetic boy, be he ever so poor. He has demonstrated that such a boy may come to be a scholar of wide learning -- a pleasing speaker -- a large,many-sided public man of high character and ample means.
