Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 685, Salem Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"FRANK McGINNIS was born in Indianapolis October 4, 1850. His father, GEORGE F., was born in Boston, Mass., March 4, 1825, and his mother in Ross County, Ohio, September 26, 1832. After receiving a very good common school and academic education, MR. McGINNIS clerked for awhile, and then learned iron-molding, and subsequently stereotyping, learning the last in the Indianapolis JOURNAL office, and becoming foreman of that department. September 1, 1876, he purchased a farm of 120 acres in this township, and began farming. December 2, 1877, he married JESSIE E., daughter of WILLIAM and ELIZABETH (McCORMACK) SHORTRIDGE, and to this union three children were born - GEORGE WILLIAM, December 16, 1878; DONALD, March 18, 1880; EDWIN, November 25, 1881. MR. McGINNIS is a Master Mason, an Odd Fellow, and a member of the Episcopal Church. In politics, he is a Republican. His father, General GEORGE F. McGINNIS, enlisted in Company K, Eleventh Indiana Volunteer Infantry, at the breaking-out of the late war; was elected Captain, and came home Colonel of the three months' men; he then went into the three years' service as Colonel, and came home at the end of the war a Brigadier General."
