  1. I was wondering if anyone has any information of John and Michael Shenk. They are to one that originally started the distillery. My last name is Shank. Both Shenk and Shank are variations of Schenk, the Swiss version of that name. My heritage in the New World traces back to a Christian Schenk that migrated in 1717. He was part of the second group of Mennoites, led by Hans Herr that migrated in 1710. They settled on the western side of Strasburg in Lancaster County, which was part of William Penn’s land.
    If anyone has any help information please contact me at (ghshank@PA.net). Thank you.
