Large family needs bios: Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa

Do you enjoy writing bios? I have a completed sourcing and categorizing, to the best of my ability, a large family of Shannons that started in Indiana and migrated to Nebraska and Iowa (and elsewhere). The list below includes spouses, including one spouse's family, too. Two in the list are done as they were children who died young, I just can't remember which ones. A few of them have not very many sources. Several could have more family added (Needs Profiles Created category or a link to children).

This family is not directly related to me. They belong to my step-daughter's maternal line, and I've orphaned them all. Here's this list:

I am truly impressed by this, Pip, and will go so far as to say I am stunned ... for instance Daniel Figgins b 1839 has all of 49 sources pinned to his profile over at www.familysearch.com

 I looked at several of those profiles you listed, and fiddled a bit with them, and then realized what I was doing rather than doing what I have on my own plate

Hey there, Susan! One of the problems I ran into on FS was finding a spouse connected to the family, but in a couple of cases, I came across duplicate profiles (On FS) with a few more sources. Some of these were not connected to the family member I was working. Frustrating.
