He lived and died on the farm now (1898) owned and occupied by his youngest son Lafayete Schenck, in the the township of Atlantic. He was also the father of the late Garet Conover Schenck, the well known clergyman of the Dutch church, and who died only a few years ago. As Eleanor Conover was, on her mother's side, a descendant of Jan Schenck, and her husband, Lafayette Schenck, the descendant of Garret Schenck, the Dominie was a lineal descendant of the two Schenck brothers who first settled in this county.
