Notes for CATHERINE SHUMAKE: (Gathered by H. D. Shuemake)

Catherine Shoemake, b. 8 September 1807, who married Zemeriah Card, b. 10 October 1804; the couple owned 5,000 acres of land on top of Walden's Mountain east of Pikeville, just off Highway 30, between Pikeville and Dayton, TN. After her husband died, she is shown with 5,000 acres. Remember Catherine was the daughter of Elizabeth (Betsy) Thomas who was the wife of John Shoemake who died about 1814.

Property previously owned by Zemeriah and Catherine Card

In a court document, dated March 13, 1849, regarding John Thomas' will, a second Catherine, mother of Elizabeth who married John Shoemake, is shown to be his widow.This could be the reason why Elizabeth named her daughter Catherine, she named her after her mother. There was a disagreement over a will that Catherine had made preceding her death that involved John's four daughters, Lydia Gore, Clara Lewis, Elizabeth Shoemake, and Margaret Hood (?). It appeared that Catherine was not following the will made by John Thomas, her husband and the daughters were contesting Catherine's will. Apparently in John's will Catherine was to have the property until her death and then it was to be equally divided among the four daughters. However, Catherine had willed it all to Lydia. Catherine's will was contested and the other daughters were asking that her will be set aside and that the property be divided as set forth in the will of John Thomas. (Ref. Court proceedings of Bledsoe County)

Catherine's father and mother were believed to be John Shoemake and Elizabeth (Betsy) Thomas.

In a record found in a Bible owned by John Thomas, he recorded his tour of duty as a member of the Militia during his 17th, 18th, and 19th year of his age. He stated that he was born in Frederick County, VA., on November 25, 1760. On September 4, 1843, Catherine declares she married John Thomas in March of 1780 and her husband died on January 25, 1843. The marriage was witnessed by Elisha Kirklen and William Brown.
On September 14, 1843 John Thomas (Jr. ?) is clerk and Bird Thomas affirms authenticity of family record and birth of John Thomas His record:

>>>>>1. Ellis Thomas was born September 27, 1786
>>>>>2. Abraham was born 1789
>>>>>3. Elizabeth, December 20, 1791
>>>>>4. Margaret, February, 179 ?
>>>>>5. Andrew, Auguat 25, ????
>>>>>6. Lydia, July 25, ????
>>>>>7. Bird, January 19, 1800
>>>>>8. Charley, December, ????
>>>>>9. Catherine Shoemake was born September 8, 1807. *
>>>>>10. Isaac Gore Shoemake was born Tuesday, January 10, 1813.

* It is believed that Catherine and Isaac Gore Shoemake were the children of Elizabeth Thomas Shoemake, who was the widow of John Shoemake who died in, or about, 1814 and that they were living with their grandfather John Thomas. If the above record is acurrant, Elizabeth was about 16 years of age when her Catherine was born.

* In order to keep things in order, one must remember that Elizabeth Thomas Shoemake had the following children: Catherine Shoemake and Isaac Gore Shoemake. Catherine Shoemake, daughter of Elizabeth, married Zemeriah Card. Card's name was listed on the Federal Census as "Zimri" which was a shortened form of the name Zemeriah.

John Thomas served 3 tours of duty, 3 months each and was pensioned on June 7, 1833 to commence March 4, 1831. Certificate #15,700.

On June 3, 1844, Catherine Shoemake Card repeats her declaration; certified by Isaac Stephens, J.P. She was pensioned at $30.00 on March 9, 1844, certificate No. was 8, 173.

Zemeriah Card and Catherine Shoemake had the following children in 1850 according to the Federal Census:

>>>>>Zemeriah Card was listed as being 45 years of age.
>>>>>Catherine was listed as being 39 years of age,
>>>>>Children:
>>>>>Abraham B. (male) 15
>>>>>Joseph, (male) 14
>>>>>Andrew (male) 13
>>>>>Mary A. (female) 9
>>>>>Catherine, (female) 6
>>>>>Adalade E. (female) 4
>>>>>Deby (female) 4
>>>>>Elizabeth Shoemake, ( has been referred to as Betsy) a daughter of John Thomas, married a John Shoemake who died around 1813.. The couple had two children who were Catherine Shoemake and Isaac Gore Shoemake. Catherine married Zemeriah Card. This being the case, their father would have been John. (Not John Fletcher, but the John who signed the petition in 1807 and bought land from Thomas Holaway).

It is further believed by some that this same John Shoemake who was the husband of Elizabeth, died around the year of 1814. (Ref. This information is gleaned from published material: court documents, and from the descendants of Zemeriah Card).

A story told me by Mr. Rothwell who lives on top of Walden's Mountain on the same land owned by Zemeriah and Catherine Card was about Zemeriah. He said that Zermerich was a recruiter for the Union Army during the Civil War between the states. He would recruit young men for the Northern Army and housed them in a large cave situated up on the mountain until he could smuggle them behind enemy lines to some northern state.

In 1828, Elizabeth Shoemake is shown owning 5,000 acres of land near the Hamilton County Line. Mr.Robert Rothwell whom I visited on June 22, 2006, stated that Zemeriah Card acquired the land through a land grant and homesteaded it. (Ref. First Families of Marion County, Tennessee., 1809-1836 + 1840 Census, page 232 and 245 D.)

In the 1837 tax list, one will find Zimeriah Card, Isaac Shoemate, John Shoemate, Eli Thurman, John Thomas. They are all in district 6. That is the district where the town of Pikeville is. That would be where highway 30 and the Kiuka trace go into the Sequatchie valley. The Indians came across the Kiuka trace coming from the Tennessee River and going intothe Sequatchie Valley.

Notes for SUSANNAH "SUSAN" SHOEMAKE:
IMPORTANT NOTE:
Susannah could have been the daughter of Hannah or married one of her sons. Marriage records for NC list Susannah Shumake Vannoy to Thomas Sutherland. No date given. Some list her as Susannah Vannoy although I have not found proof of this. 1880 she says her mother was born in SC, same place Hannah was born.
She is believed to have been living in the household of Hannah Shumake in 1840. Ages for both Susannah and Scottie are provided there. Living next door is a John Shumake. Perhaps her husband. Her daughter had a son named John Thomas Ferguson. Thomas for her husband's father's name, perhaps John for her fathers name?

Letter to H. D. Shuemake
January 25, 2003
Dear Mr. Shuemake:
Some weeks ago I wrote to inform you that Hannah Shumake had a daughter, named Susan, born in 1823. I've learned a bit more since then, some of which relates to the material at your web site, particularly to the presence of Shumake children in the Sutherland family in 1850. Since I suspect it may interest you also, I'm passing it along.
I first heard that Hannah Shumake was Susan's mother back in 1967 when I drew up my family tree for a school project. I was given more details in a 1990 letter from my grandmother. She wrote, "William Isaac McGarr married Susan Shoemake. Her mother's first name was Hannah. We don't know her last name. He was born in Ireland and it is believed Susan was too. ... He came to America as a stowaway on a ship, so she must have come later.

"Their sons were Frank, James K. Polk, and John R. Their daughters were Scotty, Emma, Margaret, Martha Ann (who was your great great grandmother) and Annie."

Let me say that this family tradition is remarkable because, although it correctly records the names of Susan's children, it is demonstrably false in other ways. For instance, I have yet to find William Isaac McGarr, though Susan did marry a James McGarr, who appears in the 1860 census for Bledsoe County, Tennessee (dwelling 356). (Perhaps William Isaac was James' father.) The children do not share a single father, but seem to have three separate fathers. Also, Susan was born in Tennessee, not Ireland. An examination of the census records makes me wonder whether Susan was, indeed, Hannah's daughter. She may have been her daughter-in-law.
You have an image posted at your web site of a portion of the 1850 census for Bledsoe County, TN, which includes the Sutherland family. Thomas Sutherland, age 60, is the head of household. Susannah, age 27, is there as well, followed in the listing by two older Sutherland children. Then Scotty Shumake's (12) name appears, followed by Margaret (9), Emily (7) and David F. Sutherland (10 months). Susannah is plainly Susan Shoemake: she is the right age and the children have the right names. (I believe David F. is Frank; the 1860 census makes this plain.) She is also only four dwellings removed from Hannah.

(In 1840, Susan would have been 17, and her daughter Scotty, 2. They could thus be the two females, one zero to five, the other fifteen to twenty years old, who appear in Hannah's household in that year).

Susan seems to have given birth to three Shumake children, then married the elderly Sutherland, who fathered her fourth child, Frank. On the hypothesis that Susan was Hannah's daughter, and a Shumake herself, why were the first three children (Scotty, Margaret and Emily) given the Shumake name? The most likely alternatives are: (1) the children were illegitimate; and (2) Susan Shumake had married another Shumake. Another option is that (3) Susan was not Hannah's daughter, but had married one of her sons. I do not yet possess enough information to decide among the alternatives.

By 1860, Mr. Sutherland has passed on, and Susan has married James McGarr (dwelling 356). Margaret (18), Emily (15), and Frank (10, Franklin = David F.) are shown under the McGarr name. The new children, Martha (7), James K. Polk (6), and John R. (3), are there as well, as is Scotty (20). She appears to have been married to a Hasting and given birth to three children: Eliza (6), Alice (2), and James F. (four months).
In 1870, James McGarr is no longer in the household (dwelling 14, seventh civil district), but the youngest daughter, Anna, is present, along with her older siblings (except Scotty, Frank, and Martha Ann). (Martha has married Lowra M. Merriman and has a son and daughter of her own.) Out of curiosity, I've searched for Scotty and her son James in the online 1880 U.S. census, but to no avail.
Again, I'm sending this in the hope that this information, coupled with whatever others may provide, will eventually result in the discovery of Hannah's husband's identity. Perhaps someone has the key to the true relationship between Hannah and Susan Shumake McGarr as well.


Sincerely, R. Grant Jones

and Bessie Mae Scott. Though he was named Dennis he earned the nickname of Pete. When he was about six months old himand his family moved by wagons to Gunter Texas where some lived out their lives, but not Pet e. When Pete was about 17, his father went to work at the old steam building in Sherman, Texas. Luther told his son that there was a realpretty girl he should meet, but Pete really didn't want to meet anyone who his father thought was pretty. Pete eventually met the girl who his father had told him so much about and soon fell in love. The girl was Mildred Goldston and she didn't want to have anything to do with Pete.

One day while Mildredwas working, Pete went out to her car and did something to it to where it wouldn't start. When Mildred came out to leave, Pete ran to the rescue and fixed her car, their first date was to t
he classic movie, Gone with the Wind. On July 24, 1943 at the age of 17, Pete was married to Mildred.
In February of 1944, Pete entered the Marines and received his training at Camp Elliott and Marine Base in California. He went on to serve in the pacific during World War II and at one time was in China. After
he returned home, Pete and Mildred started their family. On January 06 of 1948 their first child was born, RonaldLynn "Ronnie" Ferguson, followed by a daughter, Sherry Lea who was born on February 04 of 1951 . On March 25, 1955 another son, Dennis Wayne was born. Pete spent most of his life in construction and moved around a lot. He was always proud to have been a Marine and flew an American flag whenever possible. Pete's parents and siblings moved to the small community of Hamby, n
ear Abilene, Texas. Pete and his family eventually moved out there with them where a fourth child was born, David Ray, born on July 16, 1963. Sometime later, Pete and his family, with the exception of Ronnie, moved back to Grayson County, Texas where Mildred's family resided. Pete and Mildred were the proud grandparents of six: Pamela Gayle Huff, Brandi Dawn Jeffers, Kevin Wayne Ferguson, Shauna Jo Ferguson, Casey Ray Ferguson and Kimberly Kay Ferguson. They enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mildred passedaway February 20, 1996 at the age of 70. Pete lived ten more years until May 25, 2006. Both are buried in Van Alstyne Cemetery, Grayson County, T
exas. Pete lived a great life, serving his country, marrying the love of his life, raising a family and watching them grow. Pete was a rare American who was proud to have served his country and is forever missed by all who knew him.

Notes for MILDRED LEE GOLDSTON:
Cause of Death: > Cancer
Things were always happening to Mildred! One timeshe was at the Good Will in Sherman (her favorite store) and she sat down totry on a pair of shoes. She went to tie the shoes and all of the sudden something
hit her on the back. Before she knew it she was laying spread eagled on the ground and matress' were falling on top of her one by one. Everyone inthe store was looking at her... to this day I'm not sure if sh
e ended up buying the shoes or not. Mildred went to this old Gas Station one time with her daughter, Sherry, and new grand-daughter, Pam. Sherry was in the passenger seat and Mildred was driving. Mildred pulled into the gas station and noticed i t was taking them a long time to come put gas in her tank. Without hesitation she started honking. Sherry slumped down in the seat... "It's a barber shopMomma!" she said. "Oh!" Mildred said and drove off. Sherry said that all themen in the barber shop turned in their chairs and just stared at them! Mildred, Sherry, & Mildred's mother-in-law, Bessie were all out driving one day. They stopped at a red light behind a truck that had a man and a dog in it, and that was all. Bessie say's, "I wonder if that's one of them seeing eye dog's?" "I hope not!" Mildred answers her. Feeding the Hogs: When Mildred was a little girl & her mother was pregnant with the twin
s, Loy and Troy, she went outside to help her mother feed the hogs. Mildred's mother, Lois, was a small woman and she was pregnant with twins, so she was bigger than usual. Mildred was afraid of the hogs, and when hogs see or smell food they get excited and can get a little aggressive. So her mother handed her a stick and told her that she was going to feed the hogs and that if they started to act up to hit them with the stick. Well, her mother went in the pen to feed them and evidently one acted up. Mildred got so scared that she swung the stick and accidentally hit her mother in the head with the stick.
A little while later they were sitting on the porch, her mother was still trying to get rid of the pain inher head. By this time Mildred was a little scared, and then her mother looked up over at her and said
? "You hit the wrong hog!" The day Mildred was buried set the record hight temperature at somewhe
re around 95 degrees... this was in February. Mildred was 70 years, 9 months and 27 days old when she died.
