A biographical sketch of Shadrach, Rachel, and son George was published in "A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans", Vol. 4 (1918, William E. Connelley):20

S. R. Timmons was born in Ross County, Ohio, and passed his life there.  In early manhood he married Rachel Hanshaw, who was born in North Carolina but was reared in Ohio, where her parents, Martin and Sarah Hanshaw, were very early settlers and substantial people.  S. R. Timmons and wife lived on their farm in Ross County and there he died in 1874 but his widow survived into extreme old age.  They had a family of three sons and three daughters, of which George Timmons was the first born.  

George Timmons was a native of Ross County, Ohio, born November 30, 1836, came to Kansas in 1878, and died at Clifton, Kansas, in 1911, beloved and respected by all who knew him.  He attended the district schools in Ross County and assisted his father on the home farm.  He married Matilda Baker, who was born in Jackson County, Ohio, September 23, 1836.  Her parents were Josiah and Emma (Schooly) Baker, who were born, reared and married in Jackson County, Ohio.  They lived there until 1865, when they removed to Saline County, Missouri.  Mrs. Timmons was the first-born of their five children.  The paternal grandparents of Mrs. Timmons were Rev. Joseph and Mary (Hankins) Baker, natives of Kentucky, and of German ancestry.  Rev. Joseph Baker was a farmer and also was a minister of the Christian Church.  He served as a soldier during the Mexican war.  Both he and wife lived into old age.  Soon after their marriage, George Timmons and wife, about 1865, removed from Ohio to Missouri and settled in Saline County.  They resided near Marshall, Missouri, for thirteen years, but in the fall of 1878 removed to Clay County, Kansas, and settled on a farm in Mulberry Township, four miles south of Clifton.  In the course of time Mr. Timmons acquired a large body of land, carried on extensive operations as a farmer and stockman and not only became one of the county's capitalists, but a prominent man in public affairs.  In 1895 he retired from active farm life and established his home in Clifton, of which city he subsequently became mayor and also served in minor offices.  Throughout life, after it formation, he was a member of the republican party.  During the Civil war he was a strong supporter of the Union cause, sending a substitute, voluntarily, because a physical disability prevented his serving as a soldier in the ranks himself.  Although he accumulated wealth, at death leaving an estate worth not less than $75,000, it had been secured through honorable methods, fairness and justice ever marking his dealings with others.  He was widely known and because of his many admirable qualities, was sincerely respected and esteemed.  He is survived by his widow and his nine children: Josiah, Emma E., Mary A., Welcome C., William Sherman, Arvina J., Rachel Ota, Daisy H. and Sarah M., all of whom have domestic circles of their own.
