Frank Bannigan Hallock (1845-1924) - of Stark Co, Illinois - Was Adopted
The Hallock line of ascent of Frank's adoptive father was: Israel F-8, Joseph-7. Israel-6,5, Zebulon-4, William-3,2, Peter-1 Hallock
Frank B Hallock took the name of Hallock and his descendants carry the Hallock name.
His natural father's surname was apparently Banigan / Bannigan, as he used that surname in the 1860 census. Frank showed in censuses during his lifetime that his father was born in Ireland and mother born in Scotland - even though his death record shows Israel Hallock as his father. His sketch in the History of Stark Co, Illinois, says: his mother died while he was young and his father "went west" in 1849 and was "never heard from again".
He is in census records with Israel and wife Persis as:
1850 - Franklin Hallock, age 6
1860 - Franklin Banigan, age 16
1870 - not found
In most later records: Frank B Hallock
Israel, Frank B's adoptive father, is listed as a child of Joseph and Esther (Youngs) Hallock in the Youngs Genealogy by Selah Youngs at p 125. Israel is sketched at pp 381-2 of the 1928 Hallock Genealogy as marrying Persis P. M. Boardman, 12/19/1839, at Northumberland, PA and having Jane E (md Tarr), William H 1856-1883 and no other children are listed. I don't find Israel or Frank B in the 1992 Addendum.
He may have taken the name and never was adopted, ie "foster" child. This is suggested because the obituaries of both Israel and Persis Hallock mention their two natural born children by name and don't mention Frank B Hallock as a son.
See Stark County biography of him attached.
